F1B Golden Doodle Female (Darla) – Born December 9, 2015

All of Darla’s female puppies have been sold!!!

This is the last available female from Darla and Newton’s December 9, 2015, litter. She will be ready to go about the middle of February when she has had two sets of boosters, has been dewormed twice and will be totally vet checked. She is $1,200, that price includes delivery to most places on the central prairies. She comes with her stuffy, a 2 kg. bag of Purina Puppy Chow and a can of Pedigree. I send my pups with lots of instructions and their vet certificate.

Her mother is Darla, daughter of Kloe (Golden Retriever) and Cesar (Chocolate Standard Poodle), and her father is Newton, son of Einstein (Apricot Standard Poodle) and Nancy (Standard Poodle and daughter of Casey and Pluto). There is some excellent bloodlines in this puppy and she will be a gentle, intelligent, clean, easy to train pup that has the capability to be one of the best dogs on the planet.

F1B Golden Doodle Female (Dane) – Born August 28, 2015

All of Dane’s puppies have been sold!!!

Dane (F1 Golden Doodle) and Cesar (Silver Factor Chocolate Standard Poodle), have had their last litter of puppies together, born August 28th. 2015. There is one female available. She has a very sweet personality and will be completely non shedding, her coat is loose wavy at this time, I do not think she will get tight curls. She will leave me with two sets of boosters, she will be dewormed twice and totally vet checked on Oct. 26th. Regina delivery date is Oct. 30th. and Alberta is Nov. 1 st. and 2nd., we do not ship our puppies but prefer to drive them to be safely placed into the forever families arms.

My pups are well handled, especially feet are worked with, to assure you have a well mannered pup for grooming. Manners have been enforced, no licking or jumping up has been allowed. I am here with advise to make this puppy into the best dog you could ever hope to own.

The price of this puppy, including delivery, is $1,200. She will come with her inoculation certificate, her stuffy (so she has something familiar for the transition), a 2 kg. bag of the puppy chow and a can of what she gets for breakfast along with lots of instructions on feeding and inoculation schedule. For more information please text 306 521-1371 or 403 919-1370, leave a message at 306 792-2113 or use my contact page.

Zoey

This is Zoey, and she is beautiful! Her mother, Darla, hasn’t had pups this year. I have her in with Newton, son of Einstein, who is Zoey’s father. Thanks so much for sending this update and pictures. You may notice some more apricot when she has her next clip. You made my day with these pictures! Zoey’s family wrote:

We are very happy with Zoey. Her one year birthday is next week on Oct. 7th and I was intending to send you a couple of photos. I’ll include them now instead, since it was convenient! As you can see, her coat has some apricot highlights; it will be interesting to see how her colour progresses. She is quite tall now and probably weighs about 55 lbs. She is still a happy-go-lucky girl, very smart and energetic, but sometimes a bit stubborn. Thanks and take care!

Kuro

This is Kuro, he is one of Dezi and Einstein‘s pups from May 4th. 2012. Dezi is now retired. Kuro’s family wrote:

I’ve attached a few photos of Kuro for you to see. He is an absolutely fantastic dog – mostly quite well behaved and smart and just easy to live with.

We would definitely be interested in another Golden Doodle from your next litter (Dane’s). Do you have a ballpark idea of when that might be? I don’t know what the gestation period is for dogs. We love the black or dark brown coloring.

Toby (Lethbridge, AB)

This well loved young man is Toby, one of Darla and Einstein’s males born October 8, 2014. What I would suggest is to be sure his eyes are cleaned out and that there is not a turned in eyelash that is causing the problem (the vet should have seen that but sometimes they pull the bottom eyelid down rather than looking at it straight on….it is worth a try and an easy fix). Keep the tear duct wiped and you can use human eye drops, the non allergy ones are best for this time of year. I thank you, Jenn and George for this great update. Toby lives in Lethbridge, Alberta. They wrote:

Just an update on Toby! He is settled in very nicely with George and I, and loved dearly by everyone in our family. He is a great pup and listens very well for the most part. His newest tricks are sitting pretty, and “leave it” when it comes to treats and goodies. He is excellent on and off the leash and is very well socialized with both humans and other dogs. He is crate trained and has not had any accidents for the last few months. Toby has a huge personality and his facial expressions are priceless! In saying all of this, there is a health concern we have with his eyes. Toby got an eye infection about a month ago, and we got him to the vet ASAP and received drops for them. We gave him the drops for one week as directed and then about a week later the eye infection was back. We brought him back to the vet and they put us back on the drops but this time for two weeks. We just finished the two week span and he went for another check up this morning. Our vet said his eyes are looking better, but I can already see the residue starting to build again. Do you have this issue with any of your other doodles? Is there something specific we should be doing for Toby to prevent this from happening? Other than that he seems to be fine. He has been sick a couple times with a bit of puking and diarrhea but nothing too serious.  Every time we take him places we always get multiple compliments on how he is such a good looking, happy dog! Thanks for the updates on Toby’s family!

Tucker

Here is an update on Tucker’s visit to the oncologist:

I promised you that I would let you know about Tucker’s visit to the oncologist. He and I went yesterday to meet her. She explained more about this rare tumor in his mouth. In addition, she laid out 4 different treatment choices. One was radiation. There is the old form of radiation that would be everyday (except Sat. and Sun.) of the week for 4 weeks straight. Tucker would be put to sleep each time. The second form of radiation is called SRS which is a new form using a new machine that is far more intensive and can be completed in 1-5 days. Both forms of radiation cannot ensure that the cancer will be completely eliminated and they both shorten his life span to just over 2 years. The second form of treatment is chemotherapy which is brutal and has not been improved on much over the last several years. The oncologist did not see this as an option for him. The third choice was surgery which would allow the surgeon to completely remove the tumor and Tucker would then be cancer free and able to move on to live a long, healthy life. The last option was to do nothing except that the tumor grows back fast and in another couple of months we would be back to where we started from.

I chose the surgery option for Tucker. It seemed to be the least invasive, the quickest to deliver and the one with the highest chance for him to be cancer free and live a long life.

Tucker’s surgery will be on Thurs. I can’t wait for it to be done so he can be on the road to recovery.

————————————————————————-

Tucker is a son of Korral and Einstein, born May 15th. 2008. I am worried about this beautiful Doodle, this cancer is a scary business in animals and people. It is really hard to believe with all the money that has been raised we can’t seem to stop it. Good luck to Tucker on his surgery tomorrow and a speedy recovery. I would like to have this posted on my web site and I would love an update on Tess, Abby and Duke as well. Tucker’s family wrote:

I am so sorry to hear that you have had a tough winter health wise. In times like that thank goodness for animals and their unconditional love and comfort. I am sure they have helped you through some of the tougher times. I wrote earlier that Tucker has been my “rock.” I am on long term disability from teaching. As a result, Tucker and I have been glued to each other 24/7. He is my therapy both emotionally and physically. His long walks and runs every day have helped to keep me in shape and keep a handle on some of the chronic pain issues I struggle with following a horseback riding accident in 1999. I couldn’t have done it without him.

Tucker has such an incredibly loving, gentle and happy personality. He is very popular in the community, from the very young to the very old, because he always wags not only his tail but wiggles his entire body from side to side when anything with a heartbeat comes near him. He also loves to raise his top lip and give everyone big smiles. He often draws small crowds when I walk him into town. Complete strangers seem to sense his loving nature and come and pet him. I have also taken him to the local seniors home where he works his magic with the staff and patients. He loves to participate in agility classes, swim in the Bow River, hike in the mountains and run beside my bike. He is truly a jack of all trades. How lucky we are that Einstein and Korral gave us such a special guy.

I want you to know that I didn’t email you about Tucker’s cancer to blame you or question your breeding. I wrote you to let you know the joy you have given myself and my family by providing us with Tucker. Tucker, his sister Tess, Abby (born 2006 from your farm) and Duke (Abby’s brother) are 4 golden doodles I know well from your breeding program. They are all incredibly gentle, loving and giving dogs. I have recommended you to many people and would buy another puppy from you without a second thought. Tess and Abby live next door and Duke lives across town.

Casey (Regina)

Casey is one of Korral and Einstein‘s pups, born July 28, 2010. This is the first time I have heard about her, I am thrilled to see how beautiful she is and how happy they are with her! Casey lives in Regina with her family, she is in the exact right place! Thanks Roseanne! She wrote:

Someone asked me where we got our dog from and I passed on your contact info. I thought I would pass on to you how great we think she is. She is very sweet and smart. She has a crazy sense of humour. We love her to bits. We got her from you July 2010. Anyhow, here are some pics and thanks again.

Loki (Grimshaw, AB)

Miss Loki looks pretty comfortable snuggled! Thanks Grant and Amber for sharing. I am surprised she has stayed as black as she is but she may get some brindle throughout her coat as she ages as Dane is Apricot and Cesar gets more silver in his chocolate coat each year , she really shows the Poodle with her muzzle clipped and it sounds like she gets lots of love and attention. They wrote:

Loki is doing very well. The three of us spent the day together driving to scenic areas and having a casual day. She goes everywhere with us and thoroughly enjoys her travels. The last picture is at Elk Island campground near Whitelaw. We took Loki to play in the Peace River. She seems to enjoy the water edge and chased a few sticks in; still haven’t seen her swim yet. I wish I would have taken a few photos of her playing in the water… She is not very graceful yet and her antics are quite entertaining.

Her colouring has remained black. In the right light, you can see a tinge of brown around her muzzle. Although when we brought her home, we were expecting her to brindle, it does not matter to us. She is a beautiful member of our family.

Princess Loki is one of Dane and Cesar’s females from August 9, litter. It is pictures and videos like these that put the wind under my wings. I love to see how happy my pups are, it is the icing on the cake in this business. It is hard to let them go, so pictures like these tell me in my heart that they are indeed in the right place. I don’t see any chocolate or blonde in her, I had expected this litter to brindle. She is a very lucky dog to have a spa day, I need one also.

This was Dane’s first litter and both she and her sister, Darla, did a remarkably great job with their pups. Loki’s family wrote:

I downloaded an app to my phone and created my first video…. I hope it puts a smile on your face. We have a 50′ rope that allows Loki to play and burn a bunch of energy. When we put on the 4′ leash, she seems to understand that it is learning time and she means business. Loki had another spa day and is all clean and trim. Perfect for a photo, I’d say… Attached is a quick shot as we were about to drive home.

Kimbo

This is one of Dinah and and Pluto‘s females born April 9, 2011. I hadn’t heard from this person for quite some time so it was really a treat to see Kimbo’s pictures. Thanks Fiona! She wrote:

Sadly Kimbo is not very photogenic; she tends to disappear given she’s black. Here are two photos I could find on my phone. One from last fall and the other taken this morning before she went to the groomers. As you can see she is very cute but sure was hot before her hair cut.
