Doodles are affectionate, gentle dogs that get along with everyone – even cats! Having been bred towards low shedding and allergy friendliness, they make the perfect addition to many households.
We are in Bothell - about 20 miles from downtown Seattle!
I try to work with my dogs every day, just practicing something as simple as a “sit, stay” command as we come inside from a potty breaks or “down, stay, leave it” when I’m giving out treats. I think my dogs enjoy the training because they really want to please me and they enjoy the mental stimulation. These are smart breeds and they enjoy the work. I try to grab my phone and share on Instagram stories so I can show off my girls a little bit and let people see what is going on here at our house.
Shared in a few doodle groups today. Made me cry and I wanted share. I know what it feels like to lose a pet. I know how hard your heart and your head hurts processing the loss. Everyone heals at a different pace in a different way but I just want to say I can relate to what you are feeling…..
A Letter from the Rainbow Bridge
Now that I’ve been across The Rainbow Bridge for a couple weeks, they said I should write a letter home. Sorry, Mom but I’m so busy ‘across the bridge’ that I haven’t thought of home much. They said it’s okay and that you would understand. I hope you do. (I think you will.)
So here is some background first – I have 3 girls in my house full time. In addition to everything else I have going on, I spend time working on training each of my dogs to sit, stay, down, leave it, walk off leash, etc. There are only so many hours in the day and when I want to spend time working with each girl individually and take her out to the Mill Creek Town Center to be around other people, it can end up taking me several hours for just my 3 girls here full time and if you did not know I also have a full time job (working from home but it is FT).
I also can’t have more than 3 dogs here full time AND have my Mommies come back here to have puppies, it just gets to be too crazy and that isn’t good for anyone. The way to work around this issue is a guardian program.
Our first litter will be 4 years old next month. Time has flown by and I have gone from advertising on Craigslist to a waitlist of over 20. I am so grateful for the love that we have received. THANK YOU.
With this new attention, I have seen an increase in the amount of messages that I receive asking to come over and meet our dogs or play with puppies. I have also been surprised by a few random people that never even called me, they just showed up at my front door. Just to be clear, that is scary and I would never invite you in my house if you do that. The only downside to this home based business is that I don’t have an office or kennel outside our home for people to visit.
We found a home for Childish Gambino! He was placed last week and doing so well!There is a chance that we will have guardian opportunities for females in the future but I don’t plan on adding additional males for awhile.
I have been considering keeping a female from Adele or Gaga as a future Mommy for us but that would be in 2019. I will post again when we are looking for a future guardian family! Thank you so much for the interest! If you are considering a pup give me a call so we can get you on the waitlist!
