Chelsea Got the Zoomies

Chelsea's personality is starting to come out.  Chelsea played with a toy and chewed on a bone for the first time yesterday.  This morning I let her outside with Clover and all of a sudden zoomies.  At times Chelsea was spinning in a circle so fast all her paws were off the ground.  Clover's head was going round and round trying to figure out how to join the fun.  Watching them made the whole family laugh, what a great way to start the day.

This is why I foster.  Watching a scared,…

Meet Chance

I just can't say enough about Chance, my latest foster.  Chance came to live with me and my fur boys on Saturday from his foster Mom Kristen in Alabama.  Kristen is getting married this week and was going to have to board Chance while all that was taking place.  But as the DRC volunteers always do, she put him first and put out a call for a home.  That's where Jeannine and Jacquie came in, and me, too.


Chance, so I was told,  suffers from separation anxiety when he is the…

Finally some Lola pictures

Well, it is usually the black doodles that are hard to get good pictures of but the illusive Lola has been camera shy for almost a month now.  In the last few days she has let me snap a few and we thought we would share.  (It's not that she is really that shy around the camera, I just find myself enjoying playtime and forgetting to grab the camera.)


Lola is sweet as ever, she makes friends with every person she meets - children and adults - and is especially fond of those…

Cabot is with his forever family

It’s official, Little Joe (Cabot) is adopted. Phil and I met his forever family Saturday afternoon at a local park. Michael & Anna had kept it a secret from the kids. When the kids saw Phil and I walking Little Joe they ran up to ask if the could pet him. Little Joe was more than happy to shower kisses on the children and they loved petting Little Joe. Then Anna said to the kids, “Remember the surprise I mentioned?”. The kids nodded and she said, “This is it. Little Joe is our puppy”. You… Continue

I was able to get some extra photos of Christy today while she was smiling for the camera! It's tough, getting good pics of black doodles, but she's a champ; she put up with me (and with a little help from…

Through the Eyes of a 7 Year Old

Last Thursday I picked up our new foster Chelsea. Chelsea had to be shaved down to the skin because of all the mats. She only has hair around her eyes and the last 6 inches of her tail. When we got home I set a crate up in my daughters bedroom since she never plays in there thinking it would be a nice quiet place for Chelsea to adjust. Lexi got home from school we talked about Chelsea and her journey to us. Now most kids seeing a dog with no hair would ask what's wrong it, not Lexi. The first… Continue

I have the BEST DOG in the WHOLE WORLD and he's not mine!

Brewster has been through so much in the last 13 days and has taken everything in stride.  The morning (Sun) after we arrived home his scrotum (balls) was the size of a softball, off to emergency we went he had a horrible infection.  Mon. off to my vet we went for a check up only to find out that he has a foxtail in his ear almost to the point of puncturing his eardrum, blood test needed as he had no body mass.  Foxtail removal has to wait until he's healthy.  Blood test came back GOOD! …

Rudy the red doodle!

Rudy the red F1bb labradoodle foster arrived at our home on Sunday night. He is a puppy ( although at 45 lbs) and 26 inches tall ( at the shoulder), you wouldn't believe he is only 11 months old.

Rudy is a re-home. He was purchased from a very reputable breeder in VA and taken to a home with an older doodle.  Rudy has the typical puppy energy and got into some elastic that caused him to have emergency surgery, not once but twice. He was returned to the breeder who gave him to DRC to…

Help finding a Mini

We are interested in adopting a mini Golden or Labradoodle. We're up on most of the issues concerning bringing an adopted Doodle into our family. We are keeping an eye on the available DRC Doodles and would appreciate any help in finding the right animal. We have a well behaved mellow cat we adopted and are in love with who makes regular visits to a hospice as part of the SPCA Animal Assisted Therapy program and hope to do the same with our future Doodle.

Lola has been with us nearly four weeks now and I must say she is still as sweet as her first day with us.  She is still obsessed with retrieving things and has expanded the game to frisbees which she is able to catch in the air a lot of the time.  She still hasn't really wanted to play with the golden boys - she is definitely focused on her people.  We just found out yesterday how great she is around kids too. 

It is great to see the change in her fur now that she has had good…

Howdy can swim!

We have spent a great deal of time at the beach in Evanston since his arrival in January, and he did not hesitate to plunge into the water, regardless of the frigid temperatures(one day he walked home sporting a coat of sand icicles over his entire body), but until today, the tide was such that he could simply run in and out after the ball. Finally this morning, despite the rain and my personal discomfort on the shore, the ball went far enough and the waves were big…

Foster Update...Ruby's Forever Home and Introducing Yankee Doodle (Foster)!

Sweet Ruby Foster Doodle went to her forever family this weekend! Ruby is such a good girl and her new family is absolutely thrilled with her. They are getting the first hand experience of how being ill-treated for the first three years of her life is NOT going to get Miz Ruby down! She has way too much goodness and love in her for that! So please, join me in wishing Ruby and her new family, the Walkers, every happiness in the world!


Another dog was available for fostering,…
