Tucker (Saskatoon)

These are the first pictures I have seen of Tucker (from Kayden and Pluto born June 6, 2009) since he was a pup, he certainly grew into a handsome dog. I didn’t think he would get this big but it is hard to tell in the picture as his partner is a small woman and sitting in the background a bit. This is the head I was looking for, nice a flat, I am thrilled to say I am his breeder. His family wrote:

Tucker also has a new little brother – “Ryder” (pic attached) Registered name….. RoughRyder…lol! We love him…but sure is no Tucker, my husband keeps saying we should have got another Doodle…he seems to want a white/cream one?

I should NOT even be TYPING this….but if you ever had one like Tuck…that just needed a wonderful forever home………yikes….maybe let me know. My daughter (who Tucker ADORES…said this today….”You know Mom, if Margaret Ann is getting ready to retire, we really should get another Doodle) I almost had a stroke….THREE dogs would be a handful…m

I’m a bit of a neat freak including our acreage yard….but Tuck has been the BEST teacher…


BTW- We are horse people…Tucker loves our horses, they love him….he lies next to our Stallion for goodness sakes. Also, each year we take horses and head to Cypress Hills for 2 weeks, Tuck can’t wait to get in the truck, he rides everday with us….AND… takes care of the third horse we bring..this horse is loose following along behind us…if that horse stops to eat..so does Tuck, then the two of them catch up…priceless.


Frank lives in Moose Jaw with his owner Peter. He goes to work with Peter every day, Peter is an electrician and calls Frank his ‘apprentice’. Frank is one of Kayden and Pluto’s pups from Sept. 5th. 2007. Peter told us:

Well, here is a picture of Frank. He is such a sponge sometimes look how he has his eye on the camera. I would love to get another one of your dogs , we saw a doodle in Saskatoon and if it were not for the traffic at the time I would have stopped because he looked like the one you sent me a picture of with the curly messy looking hair doo!


People need to be aware of the list of things I have posted that dogs should not ever be given or get into accidentally. This beautiful pup ate a whole bag of raisins on Thursday and almost didn’t make it. This picture was taken at the vet’s with is IV tube still in, and he is still smiling. Please refresh yourselves with the DO NOT eat list. Lucky for Cooper his owner got him to the vet in time. They sent us this update:

I went to visit him yesterday. He was very lively and they said that was a good sign – but they were doing a blood test in the evening. They phoned Adrian. His blood test was perfect and Adrian went to pick him up about 9 last night. I haven’t talked to him since.

The vet said that it was important that Adrian discovered what had happened and went in immediately. She said they can’t induce vomiting if 3 hours have passed. After 3 hours it’s a lot more serious. I put a warning on Facebook telling everyone that raisins are very toxic to dogs and cats apparently.

The vet said that they don’t know what it is in raisins that causes kidney failure. They are trying to discover what it is.

So Cooper, thank goodness is doing great. Adrian says he won’t be buying raisins in future!


Cooper is one of Kayden and Pluto’s pups from June 6th, 2009, so he is 4 now. A lot of people ask to see pictures of what the pup will look like when it is mature so this should be helpful. Cooper’s family is really happy with him!


Mollie is and F1 Golden Doodle. She was born to Kayden and Einstein on June 6th, 2009. Her owner wrote us to say:

Just over two years ago we bought a black goldendoodle from you. I came across your website and thought you might want an update. Mollie is doing great. She has an excellent temperament and everyone who meets her falls in love with her. When I came across your website I told my fiance I wanted another one, now’s not the time but in the future if we do get another dog we will for sure get it from you. Ive attached a picture hopefully it works.

Thanks again for the great dog.

F1B Golden Doodle Litter (Dezi) – Born March 27, 2011

Dezi whelped March 27th, the same day as Doe Dee.  She has only two pups available, one male and one female, both black and both will be quite curly.   The proud father is Einstein, the Grandmother is the now retired Kayden, and the Grandfather is Pluto.  These pups will be winners where ever they go.  They will be easy to train, non shedding, extremely smart, clean and loyal.

Darby scored an excellent retirement home on a ranch near Drayton Valley, Alberta. She has one of my Jack Russells as a buddy and apparently the barn cat….she loved the barn cats here and always let them sleep with her pups, so I’m glad she has a cat as a friend now.


Darby is now on a Ranch near Drayton Valley, Alberta.   Darby’s forever home is with a family that I have known for 25 years and have placed two Jack Russell’s with, so I am very happy that this will be Darby’s forever home!  Her new family told us:

Darby is doing great so far.  The family love her.  Grace was a little worried about petting her due to the ticks, but I assured her the ticks (and I haven’t noticed anymore) would not jump or willingly let loose of Darby.  After that, Grace loved and petted her lots.

She is such a playful dog.  Yes, she has smiled.  We love her already.


Today I am sad to say I have probably given Darby her last clip.  She is going for spay on May 22nd and home to recover and then on to her forever home….. people ask me how hard it is to sell my pups after so much of me goes into them…. not nearly as hard as letting one of my adult girls go!   I was there when this girl was born, I was there when her mother and grandmother were born and to me this is the saddest part of what I do for a living.   This is where I remind myself how many families I have made happy by placing one of my pups into their home to be a cherished member of their family.

I know I will get to see Darby again as I know where her new family are…. and this is why I do not ‘give’ one of my retired dogs to people I don’t know that just want a free dog.   Darby has, in my eyes, been my most outstanding F1 Golden Doodle, she will be a hard act to follow!   The downside of this bloodline has been the huge litters, the older I get the harder they are.   You would not believe how fat this girl is and she just weaned 14 pups…. I however, am 30 lbs. lighter!   I will miss this girl, she was so easy, not a barker, not a digger and it is not going to be the same doing chores without her smiles to greet me.


Darby Doodle extraordinaire, in my eyes this is my best F1 Golden Doodle.  She is the daughter of Kayden and Pluto and was born May 2nd., 2007.   She has had 2 litters of F1B Golden Doodles, fathered by Einstein, that rank at the top in my eyes for pups produced.   She will be bred the same way and should whelp in August or September 2011.   I took Darby to obedience classes and she did very well placing 5th in a class of 17.  Two of the dogs that took 1st and 3rd were pups from my breeding program, so I did not mind being beat.  Three of the top five dogs that placed were from here.

Darby is another of my girls that will hang around with me all day when I work outside, I have a combination of girls that can run for hours together when I am outside, Darby is always in that group.   She has excellent confirmation and produces very outstanding pups that are gentle, well put together lovable, loyal characters.

Darby weighs 50 lbs. and is 21 inches at the wither, so not a huge girl.  She does, however, have a full sister named Sophie that matured at 65 lbs. and is 23 inches at the wither.  Sophie is a longer legged girl with a bit more spring of rib and a most lovable personality.  Sophie is extremely smart, and knows tons of tricks….I get to visit her a few times a year and she knows who I am.  It is always such a bonus to me when I actually get to see and pet the ‘fruits of my labor’.


Kayden’s new owners sent us some updated pictures!  They wrote, “Attached is the photo of my mechanic. She is a great gopher catcher, now if she could only get the weasel under the house.”


This girl is Kayden, now retired to a farm in the Three Hills area of Alberta.   Kayden was from Bailey, a very dark red Golden Retriever and Dexter of Telford Kennels, who is a platinum blonde awesome specimin of a dog.   Kayden had huge litters which kept me hopping to supplement.  She is the mother of Darby, who without a doubt is my most outstanding F1 Golden Doodle.  Darby thankfully  had only 7 pups in her first litter, and 8 in her second litter.  Darby will be bred this summer for her 2011 pups.
