We received an email from Julie giving us an update on Sophie (dark blue collar girl).
A pic and a video of Sophie on the day she went to her new home.
Another pic of Sophie from her early puppy days.

Julie says that Sophie is a wonderful dog (of course we all already knew that) and that she is almost completely potty trained (that's new news and good news!). She loves ice cubes (takes after her mother on that one), mini carrots and playing with Ginger, her golden retriever new older sister. The picture below was taken a month or so ago, soon after Sophie went to her new home.

Update on Tucker

We have heard from two more of our puppy families though we don't have pictures yet. If you click on the links below the text it will link to a page with pictures from their days with us. Here's the scoop on Tucker, the little brown boy with the red collar/toenail:

"Tucker is doing awesome," according to Laurie. Potty training is nearly complete and except for his love of Kleenex's from the trash and dirty socks from the laundry, he's becoming the perfect little gentleman. He loves to attend ballgames of all types and has visited Jenna and Drew's classrooms. Sounds like he has quite a busy schedule!

Our update from John and Stacey sounds like Rumsey has taken to his new home quite easily and gets along well with his two feline housemates. Though some of his siblings reportedly are still struggling with the leash thing, Rumsey looks quite content in this first picture with his leash. However, the second picture looks like he's not so sure.

Here he is with his favorite companion, Aidan.

Sophia Rose

Today's posting is dedicated to Sophia Rose (Red collar girl) We received these three pics this week and I simply couldn't choose one or two to post. So you get all three.

Quick reminder: Sophia Rose was "Queen of the Hill" in the camping chair video. The word from her family is that she is still very feisty!

Maeve in a tutu!

We have our first picture of one of the puppies wearing clothing. Maeve (pink collar) was a ballerina for Halloween and loved wearing her tutu. Apparently she wanted to sleep in it that night. Given that she had pink toenails at 2 weeks and a pink collar at 4 weeks, it shouldn't be a surprise that she liked the pink tutu.

As is the case with her siblings, Maeve is still working at learning to be on a leash. Sounds like she's quite lovable and Elizabeth says the curls make her look like she has a bad case of bed head.

The Puppies are Growing!

We have recently received updates from a few of our doodle puppy families. We'll post some info up, one at a time over the coming days so check back for more.

Josie (Light blue collar girl) is really getting her curls. Kim says she is halfway through her positive puppy training course and it sounds like she's on track to graduate.

She particularly enjoys helping Corinne study(below left) and loves when Kelly is home from college, though it doesn't look to me like much studying is getting done. She is working at become friends with the family cat, Beanie(below right). We must forgive Beanie's shocking glare. She has just come home from tooth surgery.
