Three Doodles @ The Park

We went to the dog park this morning to have some fun...

Looks like someone is ready for a nap. …

Harper My New Foster Looks Like A Mini Clover!!



Harper is not even 4 months old and in need of a new home.  A BYB was going to take her to a kill shelter because she supposedly has a leak issue.  She wouldn't of had a chance there.  Harper' leak issue is more than likely due to the terrible UTI she is suffering with.  Which in turn caused urine burn and…

Casey came to us just shy of a week now.  He has fit like a glove.  What a charmer this 8 month old is.  He has stole the heart of us all, that is myself, my husband, an 8yr old boy, a 6 yr old girl, a cat and our 3 yr old golden retriever.  He is mellow, a major people pleaser, smart and just so darn cute!  He is gentle with my kids and loves to play with them and our golden.  Of course as a puppy he still needs the "no bite" reminder.  However he is not biting but gently nibbling as he is…

It's My Gotcha Day! By Jackdoodle

Six years ago tonight, my mom adopted me! She came to the shelter where I was staying and took me home with her, and I've been here ever since!

It took her three days to decide to adopt me. The first day she met me, she wasn't sure she…

doodle romp tomorrow

It has been awhile since I wrote here, truth is, things are going very smoothly. Ginger and I are getting far more exercise now that Shadow takes the lead on our walks. He is so excited every day to go exploring, meet new friends (both human and canine), he is very much like a toddler who is interested in everything around him. (more below picture). At least he doesn't bark so much at the turtles anymore, thank goodness!…

Coal comes to Connecticut!!

My pack has a new foster brother, Coal, and boy is he one sweetheart. He's a gentle spirited guy who LOVES walking outdoors on a leash and running with other dogs. He also loves tennis balls and we are teaching him to catch and fetch. He now can catch nicely from about 3 feet away and he seems so proud of himself!

He is timid and shy.... loud noises and sudden movements frighten him. He acts just like a dog who has been abused…

Peeing in Food Bowl

We have a rescue who lived seven and a half years in a puppy mill cage.  She has made remarkable strides in socialization.  However, after eating, she will urinate in her food bowl.  We believe that this is a marking behavior to signify that the bowl is hers.  We try to remove the bowl as soon as she has eaten but, is there any other way to prevent this behavior.  She is emotionally very fragile so scolding her is not an option...

A Reason to Adopt

I wish I could tell you how my life started.  Whether it was in a cramped cage in a puppy mill or whether my life had a happier beginning.


I wish I could tell you the story behind why I ended up for adoption, but truthfully I don’t really know if I understand the reason myself.


I do know one thing: I am a special dog.  I am just as valuable as any dog purchased from a breeder at top dollar…in fact I am even more special because I need you…

They Do Love Each Other!!

Last week I decided to give the doodles some play time with other dogs and took them to doggie daycare for the while I was at work.  As a puppy, Cubbie was always the life of the party there and spent his days running back and forth across the room.  In the beginning, Ollie was pretty timid at daycare but going there helped Ollie to learn how to play with other dogs which made the situation at home a lot better.

Since I am addicted to the doggie daycare webcam, I checked in on them…

Luna Foster Doodle (cross post from DK)

(posted this week on DK, apologies to DRC...forgot to cross post!!!)

Luna came into the DRC rescue program with her (suspected) sister Stella (and they are aptly named...these dogs will be someone's moon and stars!). I of course don't know what happened in their 2+ years beforehand, but some horrible person did a real number on these girls. I had both Stella and Luna for about a month and while Stella is more outgoing and less fearful than Luna,…

Constant companions

Shadow and Ginger have settled into their new lives together so well. Walks are easy, his nervous barking is far less frequent (though still really loud!!), he genuinely seems to be relaxing (often in his favorite comfy spot on the couch). He doesn't use his crate at all anymore.

As always, Ginger watches over everything (the queen) as Shadow enjoys a quiet moment outside. Even when it was really cold, he loves outside! Ginger seems more engaged, curious, wants to be everywhere with…

Doodle Dream Come True!

A few weeks ago a new doodle joined our family! We rescued Oliver the Labradoodle from the shelter in Conroe, Tx almost 3 weeks ago. Our family could not be more thrilled. He gets along great with Brady our goldendoodle and he is such a joy. We do not know much about his past but it is clear that he did not have the best first 2 years of his life. Every day he blossoms a little bit more and manages to capture even more of our hearts. Oliver was actually listed on the doodles in need section…

Welcome Big Beautiful Benny Ball Player!

Anyone looking for  a dog who can leap and catch a fly ball 100 times and drop it at your feet after sitting and doing a down/stay, he's at my house!  Benny needs space to run and play. He becomes a couch potato after the ball game!   He's well behaved in the house and he loves to be with dog people.  …

Unusual occurance

It is very unusual that Judy and I are not on the same page when it comes to potential adopters. 


However, yesterday, we met a couple with two boys, five and eight.  I really thought that the five year old was three because of the way he acted.  He would run around with his arms outstretched shaking them. Even when he met me, he came over stretched out his arms to the side shoulder high and waved them. I still think that this boy was hyper or had some other type of emotional…
