Welcome, Andy & Sharon (Boomer, Shayna & Mariner)!

Profile Information

Where are you located?
Randolph, NJ
Tell us about yourself and how we might help you:
Parents of three GD's.
Do you currently own a dog? If not, have you owned dogs as an adult, with vet records in your own name (not parents' names)?
Mariner F1b GD 7/11/2007 (about 90#) Male
Shayna F1b GD 10/21/2006 (about 40#) Female
Boomer F1b GD 10/28.2005 (about 90#) Male

Boomer and Mariner are biological brothers. Mariner fractured hs skull @ 7 weeks old, causing blindness and a seizure disorder. As a puppy he had to relearn everything, walking, eating, peeing, etc. Mariner has gradually regained much of his eyesight. He has not had a seizure in over a year (as f 12/3/11), since his medication was changed to potassium bromide.
Have you read our adoption policies, located under the "About DRC" tab?
All were gotten from breeders. After Mariner's accident the breeders provided excellant care but realized they could not care for him for the long term. If not adopted he was going to be euthanized. Samantha, our daughter, was moved by this and was instrumental in us adopting him.
Are you now involved in Rescue? If so, how? Are you interested in volunteering with our rescue?

Sharon:  I was just reading your profile about your dogs.  You are a live saver, too.  Literally.  Your dogs sound great.  I, too, had a dog with seizure disorder.  He was not a goodlendoodle - husky/rottweiler mix.  The love of my life.  Suddenly at age 3 he began to have seizures at night about once a month.  Couldn't find a cause.  I handled the seizures without medication because the vet said once he started he would be on it the rest of his life.  I got my GD Emmett to be his companion and hopefully could alert me when the other dog was having or going to have one.  I had Emmett in the house about a month and all the seizures stopped just as suddenly.  Mariner sounds like such a sweet boy.  You do have a house full.

Thanks for the gift Andy!! It was wonderful meeting you, your wife and your doodles. Hopefully we will make it back again to NJ next year and would love to see all of you again.
Have you been to the store to buy some new leashes yet? lol

Hi Andy and Sharon - Thanks so much for the friend request. I'm sorry it took me so long to respond. I've been in the process of moving to our summer home in the Adirondack Mts. of NYS and things at home were a little busy. I promise to be more attentive in the future. Sharon

Happy to find the site...looking forward to making many doodle friends. We love our rescue doodle and cannot imagine life without him!

Greetings, new Friends! Even though we are not doodles by genetics, we are doodles by friendship. In fact, we are looking to add a sister doodle sometime. If we were still in New Jersey (lived for a few years in Long Valley, Washington Township) we could visit.
Your friends, Siena and Barleycorn (Tucson, AZ)

Yes. We realized along the way for our doodle that the standard poodle would probably be a fit for our family as well. Tripper was worth the many hours of searching and all the failed attempts. We travel into your routinely to visit family in Lake Hopatcong. We are in Cape May County, the very southern most part of New Jersey.
