Re: Bedtime routine

This thread has made me laugh - we are all as daft as each other. We always go into the kitchen and open the back door and ask Murphy if he wants to go out. Usually he just looks at us as if to say how many times do I have to tell you, I don't need to go! (He has a bladder of steel and often happily...

Re: To crate or not to crate?

We had a crate for Murphy when he was a pup but he didn't seem to like it very much so we found a way to puppy proof our hallway. We had a stairgate so he couldn't go upstairs and we would leave him in the hall. Unfortunately we had to remove the canvas prints from the wall every time we went out an...

Re: Fireworks

Murphy isn't bothered at all by fireworks; even if we are out walking when they are going off, he doesn't even notice them. I am very pleased about this, not only because I'd hate him to be upset, but because I love fireworks and bonfire night and it means I can still go out rather than having to st...

Hi & Woof

from me and Murphy. We joined the site a while ago but have only started posting today. Murphy is a 17 month old miniature labradoodle who I have had since a pup. I say miniature but he is actually quite big (23kg). He is my first dog, is absolutely gorgeous and I am besotted with him. He has got su...

Re: Photographing Black doods - some thoughts

I have a miniature black doodle and photographing him is hit or miss. Often he just looks like a black blob. I will have a look at my camera to see if I can find any of the things you were talking about, but to be honest most of it went over my head lol. I will ask the other love of my life, my husb...

Re: Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge...

Knew I shouldn't have read this post. I am now sat at my computer crying. My gorgeous boy is only 17 months old but even the thought of losing him breaks my heart. Going to go and give him a cuddle now.

My thoughts are with all those who have lost a beloved mate.

Re: Do Judges discriminate agains so called designer mixes

I agree when at the woods yeaterday someone asked what leo was and she said "quote" A pedegree mongrel!! When on earth do people think they have the right to be derogatory about our beloved pets. I once had a woman in the park ask how much I paid for my dog and when I told her £400, she commented t...

Hi. Please can anyone tell me how to upload an avatar and/or a picture to my signature. I have been into the control panel and tried to upload an avatar of my beloved boy but the file is too big and I don't know how to alter the file size. Also, I couldn't work out how to add a photograph to my sign...

How much exercise for my pup?

I have got a 15 week old miniature labradoodle and am wondering how much I should be exercising him. Most days, I take him out for a walk in the morning on the lead, just on the pavements by my house - we are out for 30 minutes but probably only walking for 15-20 as he stops and sniffs everything an...
