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 often and was surprised by what I saw.  My 2 silly doodles spent most of the day just standing around next to each other watching all of the action.  Sometimes they seem to annoy each other at home, so it was kind of nice to see them so close.  (It was also a bit annoying that I was paying good money for them to play and there were just standing there, but that is beside the point.)


Here are several pictures taken at various times throughout the day.  Notice the black and cream dogs next to each other in each picture.


They got tired and wanted to nap and still had to be together (they are in the lower right corner):


Finally, just before I left work for the day, I was able to see Ollie actually playing with some other dogs:

When I picked them up, I asked the girl if either dog actually did anything or if they just stood their the whole time.  She said that Ollie was playing with all the dogs (awww...our little adopted guy has come a long way) and that Cubbie decided that he was the official welcoming dog of the group (I guess he gave each new dog that entered the room a full and complete sniffing). 

Silly doodles.

Holly has always loved the Maltese with whom she has grown up.  However she wasn't too keen on larger dogs - even doodles. This changed when we brought in Sophie, a chocolate foster doodle, las summer.  At first Holly was a bit reserved toward Sophie but, they soon became fast friends.


We ended up with three rescue doodles at one time and I think that they contributed towards Holly's acceptance of larger dogs...

I think all of us doggy day care moms are addicted to the web cams.  I have to be sure my baby is ok and playing nice.   Great pictures.  I haven't figured out how to do that at my daycare, they do have the snap shot option.

This is very cool (obviously I live in the dark ages before webcams or doggy care).  Loved seeing doodle brotherhood.

I am just so happy for you, for Cubbie, and most of all for Ollie! I love that they are standing around together in the midst of a room full of other dogs. (Okay, I know I'm not paying for it, but still!)

Amy, what you have accomplished with Ollie is amazing! Thank you so much for giving him the wonderful life he has now!
