Hi Leetta –
We just wanted to write and tell you how wonderful our first couple of weeks with Rory have been!!
She loves the park and digging holes! She also loves her duck toy (you can see her cuddling it in the picture). Her favorite part of walks is that she can make every person on the sidewalk to pet her – ms social!!
She has had hardly any accidents and sleeps through the night in her crate without any crying. Thank you for taking such good care of her and preparing her for her new home!! We are so in love!
-Megan and Neil

Leetta,
Just letting you know Finn is doing extremely well. His potty training is going great and he’s the sweetest puppy. He got used to his crate quickly and doesn’t mind it at all.  Loves walks and rides in the car. He and my Jack Russell play well together all the time. He starts puppy classes June 13. Eyes are still blue green.
Thanks so much.
Kathy

Hi Leetta,
Our family and Theo (our doodle) wanted to say hello. Theo is from the March 24th litter of Casher/Chaleena. He is simply amazing! We have had golden retrievers in the past and I have to say he is on his way to being our best dog. His easy going and gentle temperament is like nothing I’ve ever seen from a dog his age! He is incredibly smart as he is in his second round of training and easily the top of his class. We get compliments ALL the time about his behavior and loving personality (definitely like Chaleena)! House training was a breeze as he was barking at the door by 2 months. Our family did extensive research on finding our breeder and are lucky to have found you!
We cannot thank you enough for breeding these wonderful dogs! We will be coming back when we’re ready to add to the family!!

Good morning ,image2
We are very appreciative and lucky to have had you put this guy (chakoyas litter) into our lives. He is now 10 months, 70lbs, smart, well behaved and mannered. We couldn’t imagine life without him and have you to thank.  We’ve told many people about you and the have a heart cause. Thank you again
P.s. That is a plant stem in the second picture

Hi Leetta,

We wanted to check-in and let you know that Addy is doing really well! Attached are a few of the pictures we have taken, there have been many 🙂
It was really great working with you. Addy is a great addition to our family and is keeping us on our toes.
Thanks,

Hi Leetta!instagram murphy
We wanted to send you some updates on Murphy “The Love of Our Lives!”
He is the most perfect addition to our family!  Our daughters adore him as does everyone who meets him.  He is now turning 7 months old and continues to surprise us with how well behaved and gentle he is.  We take him everywhere whenever possible. The groomer commented on how nice his coat is but of course we weren’t surprised because we think he is perfect in every way!
Hope you enjoy these pictures!
Thank you again!

Hi Leeta!

I wanted to give you an update on our Lambeau that we got from you last summer. He is from the June litter of Chamielle and Casher.
The Ramsey Family.
He is one handsome man and super smart! Lambeau has been the best pup. He was very very easy to potty train (I am still shocked by how few accidents he had) and obedience has been a breeze. He attends doggy daycare weekly and does great with animals of all kinds! He is sFB_IMG_1501113901392weet, playful, goofy and very tolerant of our sometimes rowdy little girls.
Thank you so much for entrusting us with our furry friend. He is loved very much and we are so thankful!
————————————————————————————————————————————
Leetta,
Just wanted you to know that Hammer (AKA Jake) is settling in with us well.  His poddy training continues to go well, only accidents we blame on ourselves.
He is with us a lot, and has been doing well meeting other people of all different ages and statures.  Come, and Sit are going well, and we are starting to work on Down and Stay.
He likes his kennel, and will often go in it without being asked.  Unfortunately he likes harvesting the garden more than weeding it, so the daily garden tending visits Greg took with our previous dog are not something he is continuing with Hammer at this time, maybe next year.
We have him scheduled for a vet visit on Monday to continue his vaccine and worm schedule.  He is already a true member of our family and we love him.  He met water for the first time today and lounged in it a little, took a few paddles and then came out and was super happy for the cool dip.
I’ll send you some pictures in the future.  Thank you for him!

Our boys are one and a half years old now!  These boys are the best two puppies we’ve ever owned!  They are sweet, gentle, obedient, and very playful!!!  Chewie (70lbs) is just like his dad (Moses) he non-stops brings his ball to play fetch with us!  He swims, img_8626runs, plays, fetches, and has such a crazy playful personality.  Griffey is just the opposite of his brother, he is a bit smaller (65 lbs) and resembles his momma (Keaira).  We call him our bird dog as he is always alert with his surroundings and watches every move of any little critter in our yard… birds, squirrels, chipmunks, frogs, you name it!  He also can fetch, swim and play nonstop but such a different personality than his brother!  They are inseparable!!!
Here are a few photos of our precious fur babies!!  Time is flying by so fast.  We are sad that you can’t posts photo’s of mommas until after the pups are born.  It is fun to follow the mommas and babies!
We hope all are well with you and all of your wonderful animals!!!
Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for Chewie and Griff!!
Lisa & Peggy 🙂

We love our Ziva. She seems to be smarter than us at times.

Hi Leetta,

I hope you and your pups are doing great.

Here is a picture of Kyra (7/11/15 Litter). She is growing up fast and is doing great.

We can’t thank you enough for such amazing dog. She is super smart, sweet, and gets along with everyone (humans and dogs).

Kyra is currently attending training and it’s the smartest puppy in the class– she gets each command within 2-3 tries. She also won the “Dog of the Month” award at Daycare for her sweetness and temperament.

She is amazing!

We are considering a brother or sister for Kyra. We’ll see…… 🙂

Thank you so much for entrusting us with this sweet boy.

We just wanted to send you some recent pictures of our pups. And thank you again, they are the best dogs ever.  Everyone who meets them thinks the same thing…our groomer can’t get over what awesome pups they are. She said I was doing an awesome job……..all I could say is NO that is who they are and you deserve all the praise. Thanks again for our Pups

Hi Leetta,
I wanted to send you some pics of our Lacy (Keaira and Moses litter).  She is the perfect mix of her mom and dad.  Having a lab puppy is not for the faint of heart but despite all her shenanigans and chewing, we marvel at how smart and fun she is.  She’s turning into such a lovey girl now.  Everyone that meets her says the same thing, “Oh isn’t she beautiful, so friendly too!”  Then they pet her, their eyes get wide and they say, “Oh my gosh, is she soft!”.  I needn’t worry about choosing the biggest girl puppy.  She’s only 54 lbs. at almost 8 months old.
Hope all is well with you and the animals.  I can’t wait to see pics of the latest Keaira litter.  J
Merry Christmas!

Leeta I am so in love with our doodles. We have had many dogs. Only one other was as incredible as these two. The only dog I ever disliked was the beagle we brought you. We are still fixing things she did. Including triple fencing, damage to the house and the child proofing we had to do. Oh well we tried everything.

Winnie and Heidi are a joy. They have learned to whisper recently. LOL. They have learned to love each other and neither is top dog. We have daily laughs over things they do. Heidi lays on her back with a tennis ball and tosses and catches it. Prefers that to catching and retrieving it like Winnie. They are so very smart and so loving

Buddy keeps on growing. He is getting A’s in his puppy class and loves going to the dog park. He tries to get sassy but gives up quickly when told. Loves to dig and chew, but is learning when, where, and what very quickly. Favorite person in the world is my sisters chocolate lab Kyro.

Thanks Leeta

Hello and good morning to you,
Thank you so very much for letting us visit your home with all of your beautiful dogs. We enjoyed meeting all the dogs and learning about them and you! We are so humbled by the love we saw flowing throughout the farm! You are an amazing woman!
If you would allow us, we would LOVE to adopt one of your puppies into our home. As you know, we would like a female, F1 Goldendoodle. We would really prefer the mother to be a poodle and for us to receive a smaller puppy. (I know you cannot guarantee or predict weight but the mother of bubbles, who weighed about 40 lbs would be perfect!!!) and speaking of that adorable bubbles, I would like a puppy that color (creamy/beige). I know that was a lot of requests, sorry!, so if God allows a puppy to be born for Christmas that fits what we would like, we would take one for Christmas!!! If not, we would just adopt one from your spring litter, who matched the criteria. But I am crossing my fingers for a Christmas puppy!!!! Best Christmas gift ever 🙂
Would you like me to send the check this week to hold the puppy? I would be happy to do so! Also please confirm the amount due. My understanding is that the f1s are 650 so half (the deposit) would be 325.
We are so excited to bring home our new family member! What a joy it was to meet you! Thank you again for your time! It’s a good thing we don’t love closer because I would want to come and visit the dogs all the time!!!! 🙂
Have a blessed day!
Warm regards,
Jessica and Nathan

hi Leeta,,
hope you can open the photo….love our Buddy Rambo.  We visited you on July 2, 2010 and brought him “home!”  Love him soo much, he is quite the swimmer at the cottage and very protective of all of us and his friend, Kitty. Just wanted you to know how much love and affection we have because of your compassion and love for what you do. A question for you, Mia the golden retriever was Buddy Rambo’s mom.  She was a little older and may have passed by now.  My adult son loves our dog but at the same time, as he marries and gets his first dog, he actually wants a golden retriever.  Do you also have golden retriever puppies or know of a breeder that would be of the same beauty and quality that Buddy Rambo’s mother was?
Thank you; hope you have a super fall & God bless you!  Kasey Barlow

Hello Leeta, Just wanted to send you some current pictures of Charlie (may 20 th litter). He has adapted really well. Such a quick learner, he was potty trained in 1 week and learned the “ring the bells” to go outside in 1 day. We can’t say enough good things about your golden doodles you breed. They are really awsome dogs. Jordy & Charlie have brought so much joy to our family. Thanks again. PS Jordy & Charlie are sending you some dog toys to share with your future litters. The Pearson Family 🙂

Hello Leeta, I hope you are doing well! I just wanted to give you an update on Mavis & Whiskey! We had a great flight home! They did exceptionally well on the plane. They are both thriving and learning so well. We have fallen in love with both of them. I know when Whiskey goes with my son in 6 weeks we will miss him terribly! They are great travelers and have become quite close with my sister’s dog. They are so smart and have taken to training pretty well! Whiskey has had no accidents inside for almost 3 weeks. He is trained on the pee pad. Mavis definitely has a smaller bladder and has accidents but she is learning! We have had no poop accidents ever, so that’s AMAZING!! I’m so happy that we got them from you and look forward to loving them for quite some time! Also, we took them to the vet for follow-up vaccinations, they are doing great & very healthy!! Thank you so much & here are some pictures!
Sincerely, The Vanettes Family & Robert Williams (son)

Hi Leetta,
I just wanted to give you an update. We have a girl from Chakeeah & Casher. She is 12 weeks now and weighs 17.9 pounds. (She’s about 4 pounds larger than our older doodle when she was that age) She has been doing really well with potty training the past week. She is going to the door and ringing the bell to let us know she has to go out!  She definitely has an attitude!  She loves to wrestle with our older doodle! They seem to be getting along well so far!Juli

Hello Leetta,
I hope you are having a wonderful summer.  I just wanted to send you an update on our puppy, Ziva, we got from you on New Years Eve.  She is now almost 8 months old….and we couldn’t be any more in love with her.  She is an amazingly sweet dog, and is so smart.  She has so much energy, and has such an incredible personality.  She makes us laugh all the time…she plays with her toys like crazy, and will play fetch forever.  However, she also loves to just lay around chewing on bones when she gets tuckered out.  I think she is such a beautiful dog, and the combination of looks and personalities from her parents, Cabella and Chakeeha, is wonderful.   I am so grateful to have her, she makes our lives so much happier!
 I’ve attached a few recent pics of our sweetheart!
Best wishes!
Michele Pasewald, Haley and Brooke

Leetta,
Hope all is well with you.  Just wanted to give you an update on Caileigh, now a little over two years old and 86 pounds of absolute joy and love.
She has become accustomed to riding in the car—as long as (a) she rides in the front passenger seat or (b) on her bed in the back seat as long as there is a person sitting there as well. We still take her to the doggie day care place once or twice a week where she gets plenty of exercise and socializing with other dogs.  She loves going there.
We are so happy we found your kennel on the web. Thank you for our golden doodle. She brings us such joy and laughter.  She puts a smile on the face of everyone who sees her. Our vet told me last week when we got her annual shots that now that she is two years old, she is and will continue to be a most fantastic pet.
Have passed your contact information on to another person looking for a golden doodle.  It looks like you have several great litters arriving this summer.

Good morning. Just thought I would send you a quick note to let you see how much Oscar ( AKA- Romper ) is growing. I picked him up on Jan 14,2015 and took this picture and then the second picture was taken today. He is growing like a weed, but has added so much joy to my life. He has a really mellow personality, yet loves to play. He has a lot of fun chasing the many cats around the yard and loves playing with anyone who will pick up his ball and throw it. I am so happy I made the decision to get him!!!!

Hi Leetta,

I just wanted to give you an update (and a picture) Chowder is 4 months old and doing fantastic!  She is the happiest girl, she loves to be outside and now that the snow is melted she is really learning how to walk on a leash for her afternoon walks.  Her favorite pastimes are playing fetch with a football in the front yard, playing with her ‘mama’ (our older dog Bella) and romping with her best friend our 10 year old daughter Gabby.  She navigates the stairs well in the house and has a pretty good understanding of ‘no’ ‘drop-it’ ‘bring it here’ and other commands.  We just love her to pieces and want you to know she is happy and healthy!  The attached picture of her was taken on her 4 mo old birthday, right after we gave her, her first haircut.
Thanks again for this wonderful baby!

Good Evening Leetta,
I first want to thank you for the amazing puppy my parents adopted from you this last Friday. Muffy has brought such love and happiness into their home. Over the last year, I have been looking for the right time, puppy to bring home with me! My parents are Jim and Kathy Nagle and the puppy they adopted from you is absolutely perfect! He is smart, sweet, gentle, everything I am looking for.
I only wish I could have gotten one of his siblings!
I am a palliative care/hospice nurse and will be raising the puppy to be a therapy dog to accompany me on visits. Do you have any suggestions on breed? I know you are expecting puppies in which Moses was the father. Which I would absolutely love, he is the most gorgeous golden retriever I’ve ever seen and would appreciate his characteristics in a puppy.
Any ideas I would be very open too. I look forward to hearing from you.

He is very much loved by us and the girls at our vet office.  We have made sure he has his shots as needed and he also is now microchipped.  Duke is sporting a John Deere collar with Green Bay Packers name tag that we have had engraved with his name and our contact info.  Duke likes to go for short walks on his blue harness you gave us.  And he sleeps in our king size bed with the blanket he was given that smelled like his siblings.  Hope you enjoy these pictures as much as we love having him.
Sincerely,

Hello Leetta,
Just want to again say “Thank You” for this wonderful little puppy!  We love Ziva so much and she is such a joy to have in the house.  She makes us laugh all the time when she is playing…she really gets into it!  Thank you so much for working with her in a kennel before we got her…she does great in it and is learning things everyday.  We were like proud parents video taping her going up and down our backdoor steps for the first time.  I think my daughters have posted a hundred pictures already online for everyone to see, and we get so many great comments about how adorable she is.   Her ride home was a little scary for us, she got sick in the car a few times, and her first evening she was a little lethargic, but by the time she got up in the morning, she was ready to eat and she has been great ever since.  I think she is a smart little girl who will catch on fast.  We have a bell by our door so she can learn how to tell us when she has to go out potty….right now I think she thinks it is just a toy, but she sure does ring it when we are taking her out potty.  It’s so cute!
I have sent a few pictures of our sweetheart, and will send some more as she gets older!  We love her this little but are excited to see how she changes in the next few months.
Thanks Again!  Have a great week and stay warm!
Michele, Haley and Brooke Pasewald

Hey Leetta,

Hope you and the animals are doing well. Just wanted to send you some pics of Maddie. She is such a sweet girl. We already love her so much! She has already adjusted to our home and is doing great with house training. She is starting to play with her sister(Sophie, the maltipoo). I can tell that they will love each other and be best friends eventually.She was so worth the 14 hour drive up there to come get her. We enjoyed spending time with you, visiting the shelter,and talking to you about your work and service to the animals. You truly do an awesome job!
Thanks so much for answering all my questions about Maddie’s right eye yesterday. It really helped talking to you about it. I really hope that it gets better and that the vet is wrong about it. I will let you know if it gets any better/worse.
Stay warm up there. I will keep you posted as she grows.
Thanks again,
Sarah and Kyle

Just thought I’d let you know that Sugar is doing well and growing (a lot)
It’s so much fun to see how fast she picks up on things.  Housetraining is really only a problem when we don’t see her go to the door.  She has been woofing for going out at times so we’re all happy.  Those warmer days she would  just have soon stayed out most of the day.
She’s as sweet as her name.
Thank you very much.  We’re planning to fence in our yard in the spring so we’ll have plenty of room for her to be outside and get plenty of exercise. And us too.
Thanks again.
Roxy, Denny and Sugar

Buddy is getting big already, we had him at the vet on Wednesday and he is already almost 13 lbs.
Attached are some pictures for you.

Hi Leetta,

Olive is adjusting very well to her new home. She did vomit in the car on the way to Milwaukee on the 1st, but recovered quickly and had a successful car ride to Chicago yesterday 🙂

She is eating well, going on walks, playing at the park, enjoying toys, and had a wonderful time meeting our nieces and nephews and her doggie cousin.

She is VERY cuddly and can fall asleep anywhere (as you can see by the photos).

We can definitely tell that she has had experience with a crate! She seems to already understand where it is appropriate to go to the bathroom.

We love her so much and are thrilled that she is happily part of our family.

Thanks again,

Jess and Dan Dwyer

Hey Leetta,
Just wanted to give you an update on Mr. Briggs. He’s almost 6 months now and going like a weed! He is extremely smart and knows all kinds of tricks. He loves to cuddle, play with kittens and be outside. He is very laid back and gentle. Couldn’t have asked for a better dog!

Hi Leeta,

I hope you received the letter and photos of Tait. We are so happy with him and love him oh so very much! Like Blaze, he is so smart and friendly. He loves everyone he meets and of course, thinks, they love him back. We will always hold a special place in our hearts for Blaze and yes, we still do miss him greatly. Tait has brought us much happiness, smiles and laughter. He is growing so quickly (almost 50 pounds) and is so full of energy. He really makes use of our large fenced in backyard and loves the long walks we go on. He starts Obedience Class on Thursday and he got to go trick or treating at some animal related businesses this week dressed as a clown which really fits his personality.

Thank you Leeta, we wish you the best!
Debbie, Gary and Tait West

Hi Leeta,
 Here are a few pictures of Apollo:)He is now 4 months old. He loves being outside and playing in the water bowl still. He does very well with his baths and brushing.He seems to get curlier fur with every bath. He is growing so fast and getting so big.

He also enjoys bossing his big brother around. He never stops playing.

He has been a wonderful addition.

He has learned to jingle his bells to go outside and took potty training well. He is very smart and well behaved over all.

Hope you like our pictures, we will keep you posted as he grows up:)

Thanks again for Apollo

Hey, Leetta!

Thought I would send a picture of Tobias and Marisol.  She is growing like a weed!  She did go gray, very light in her forearms.  The back of her legs are brown.  She has more brown on her face and ears.  The only thing that stayed black is the last half of her tail!  She is very pretty!  She is doing great and her and Tobias get along, also.  She would love to eat all day!
I will send more pictures later.  Hope all is well with you!

Hi Leeta! Hope you had a good summer! Mike is getting ready to take our Copper bird hunting in South Dakota soon. He has a great nose and will be an awesome hunter! He also loves to camp with us. We are still struggling with a little car sickness despite all our efforts but that is his only flaw!! He is an awesome new friend!

Our youngest daughter’s dog is in the last stages of lymphoma and won’t be with them much longer. What are you anticipating for spring litters this year? She is pregnant now so wants to wait until spring. Will you have litters of golden doodles? I think if they get one from you that might make us your best customer ever!! 🙂 let me know your spring puppy plans. Thanks again for our new best friend!!

Hello Leeta,
It’s Catherine Mantuano, Duke’s owner.  I saw you have updated your Golden Barns website, so I thought I’d send you a few more photos.  (Born April 2011) Of course he is still great and we receive comments about how beautiful he is so often.  His coat has been low maintenance and it stays nice and shiny.  He has turned into a gorgeous and very affectionate red head.  He get’s along with every dog he meets and does not seem to have an aggressive bone in his body.  (Although, don’t get me wrong, he will bark to let others know he’s around.)  Anyway, thank you again and keep up the great work with all of your animals and your programs.  I’ll send over a few more photos without a note….just in case this file gets too large.  Use all or none…whatever you need to promote Golden Barns.
Best,
Catherine

 Hi Leetta,


Here is a few pictures of Bruno at 3 months old (Chelsia and Cabela’s litter).  We have been at softball tournaments almost every weekend since we took Bruno home and I think he enjoys them as much as we do.  He is so sociable and loves to be pet and cuddled with everyone.  We even had an umpire ask where he got him after he complimented us on what a great disposition he has (he had been watching him through the weekend) and we passed along your contact information to him. Bruno became Jena’s team mascot and even made the team picture. Everyone just loves him.

Thanks again.  We will send more pictures as he grows.

Hi Leetta it’s Marci from Canada.Well I made it back with no problems along the way.I just wanted to tell you that Jett is a wonderful dog,he’s learning more things already.I take him for a big walks twice a day and he  loves it.We live on the edge of town so I have easy access to a big walking path,and he seems to love it.I must say that keeping your pups for 10 weeks is the best thing a responsible breeder would do.Plus the fact that you are so good with all your dogs and you can tell they love you for it.It was so good to meet you in person I’m glad I made the trip to get him.I love him so much already and I am going to write an awesome review for your website.I have total respect for what you are doing with your dogs and your rescued ones,in fact that would altimately be my dream job,but the opportunity has never come my way.Oh well ,I’m glad to see someone loves these dogs to help them out.More people need compassion for them in times of need. Thanks again for taking such good care of him and I will give him the best life he deserves,I love him so much already.Thanks Marci

Hi Leetta!
Just wanted to send you a quick update on Carrie-who we have renamed “Molly”- she is doing great! She has been doing awesome with potty training and only had had one tiny accident because I was a little too slow in getting her out in the morning:). My husband and I really cannot believe how well she listens and well behaved she has been so far. You really do a great job with them. She came with us to our town Fourth of July celebration and I have never been stopped by strangers wanting to pet her so much!! Everyone said she was the cutest thing they’d ever seen:) I need to get you a better picture, but here’s one for now 🙂

Just wanted to send some photos. We got Seamus from you on January 25, 2014 ( dob 11/18/13)
He is 6 months now and gorgeous. He’s going to be a big boy, he weighs about 65 lbs now. He has finished puppy class and is onto basic. He is by far the most trainable dog I have ever worked with, I’m certain he’ll pass his canine good citizen with no problems.
He’s the envy of the neighborhood.

Good Morning Leeta,
 
We picked up Tabby (now Libby Lou) last fall while we were camping. We love her to pieces! We are seriously thinking of getting Libby Lou a playmate. She is so very calm and mild when she is with my husband and I, which is perfect, however we can tell when she is around other dogs she needs a furry companion. We wouldn’t think of anyone else we would want to get our next puppy from!
 
Thank you,

Hi Leeta,
I purchased a goldendoodle puppy from you a little more than 3 years ago.  You had named her Claire – a puppy from Mia and Cabella.  She is our Sophie and thee best dog ever.  I have never owned a more loving dog in my whole life.  She is so laid back – people couldn’t believe she was a puppy she had such a calm demeanor about her.  We just love her.  I have gotten so many compliments on her.  She is just a beautiful dog in so many ways!
Here are some pictures of Sophie.
Best,

Hi Leeta!

It’s been about five months since we adopted Callie (now known as Bokeh), and I wanted to share this picture with you. She is the best dog ever! We will soon be starting our third round of puppy training classes with her, as we hope to have her be a Canine Good Citizen. We get compliments on her everywhere we go.
She’s been so easy to train and her loyalty can’t be beat. This is our first family dog and we’ve fallen so completely in love with her — we’ve even talked about getting a second. If we do, we will definitely be back! Your puppies are the best!
Take care,
Scott and Kate Eastman

Hey Leeta,Just wanted to send you a picture of the English golden doodle we got from you 40 weeks ago. He is one year old today, and, as you can see, he has grown a lot! He has been such a good dog, we have been so proud of him! He is now in advanced dog training (his 5th round of obedience training), and he is one class away from therapy dog training! Everyone cannot believe how smart he is, and he just soaks up the training! We just want to thank you for our amazing baby! We feel so fortunate!Kelsey and Kody Schuckman

Hello Leetta,
I have attached a photo of Duke.  We adopted him from you almost three years ago and we are all super happy.  A friend of ours recently put his golden retriever down, so of course we recommended your puppies.  I did send him your phone number and I’m hoping this email is still current.  Let me know if I can forward any other information to him.  Your site says there are spring litters coming, which is exciting!
Best to you and all the animals!

Leetta,

 Hope all is well with you and your animals.
I’ve attached a couple of recent photos of Caileigh.  Our puppy has GROWN!  She is now as tall as our grandson’s chocolate lab and we thought he (Wrigley) was HUGE!
However, she still sneaks up on our bed during the night and sprawls–until Bill stretches his legs and she then moves off the bed.  She definitely knows how to get our attention when (a) she wants to eat and (b) when she has to go out!  She is quite the thief—pens, eyeglasses (4 pair destroyed to date), socks, kitchen towels, gloves, shoes, and anything paper—napkins, plates, toilet paper.  Once she sneaks something, she runs to her bed, shoves it down in the crease at the edge and looks at you all innocent-like.
The regular mail lady brings her a dog biscuit every day when she delivers the mail , talking to her in Polish and saying Cailsigh is the most beautiful dog she has ever seen. Caileigh starts looking for her each day—waiting for her to come.
Caileigh loves the snow, even when it is chest high on her—sticking her face in until she is white up to her eyes.  She loves going to doggie day care twice a week for 5 hours.  They call her “Crazy girl” as she never stops running and playing with other dogs the entire time she is there.  We have a very nice quiet late afternoon and evening on those days as she comes home, eats and sleeps.
Nevertheless, she is such a joy!  All she has to do is look at us and we smile—
Regards,
Mercedes

Here’s a pic of Shiloh with my oldest daughter. We renamed him Seamus, since I am Irish and from Boston. He is doing great, cried the first night, but now has either slept through or cried once to go out and pee. He is doing great on the leash and with house training. The kids love him and he plays nicely with my other dog. Vet check tomorrow, not expecting any trouble.
Have a nice weekend!

Merry Christmas Leeta,

I just wanted to let you know that we are so very happy with Tabby (Renamed, Libby Lou). She came running alongside our car when we visited while on a camping trip on October 14th.
 
She is absolutely beautiful! You said she was house trained and she certainly is! We enrolled her in Puppy training classes and she is so smart and the “Star Pupil”. Wherever we take her someone is always stopping to pet her beautiful soft fur and tell her how beautiful she is.
 
Since my husband and I are older we were not sure of a brand new puppy. We were worried about Potty training, chewed up shoes or furniture and such but we have not had any mishaps at all. She is very smart and stops whatever she is doing when she hears the word “No”.
 
She will be 5 months January 3rd. We just has her weighed at the Vet and she is 32 ½ lbs. I forgot how big you thought she would be?
 
She is always by my side. She is our new ‘Baby”, we spoil her rotten because we just love her to pieces!
 
Here is a picture of her with Santa!

 

You are the best!
 
Sincerely,
Christine Gorgas

Good morning.  Just wanted to let you know that Oliver is doing great.  I love him SO darn much.  He is a moose, long lanky legs, he doesn’t know what to do with them.  He makes us laugh cuz he is so clumsy & wipes out a lot when he is running around playing.  He is so happy & such a great boy.  I included a couple pictures of him now.  I plan on getting another Goldendoodle from you in the near future so Ollie has a playmate.  Thanks for everything, I hope this email finds you well.

Dear Leeta,
This is our Monty’s  (Monte, brother of Carlo) second birthday.  Just a quick report.
He’s healthy, happy, and is a joy.  We get him out for runs in the woods and fields of our Conservation Club 4-6 times a week and out to the (wonderful) Jefferson County Dog Park 1-3 times a week.  He LOVES to play chase — and is entranced when puppies want to crawl over him and wrestle. 
He became OBSESSED with lures coursing this past summer.  Did it on 4 separate occasions and took to it IMMEDIATELY.  The last time, after having two separate rounds on the course, I had to put him in the car while there was a little social and the equipment was all removed.  (This was at the Jefferson Park.)  I let him out to go play in the Park then and he went immediately back to where the course was.  The only thing there was the snow fence border.  He went in and ran the course about four times all on his own!  THAT’s obsession.
We — husband, myself, and Monty — went to my brother’s in Baraboo for Thanksgiving.  He loves to go because my brother has two springer spaniel brothers who are about four months older.  They play in the fenced back yard together.  His “cousins” taught him things like jumping on  picnic tables.  Well, we adults were in the house visiting around the dining room table with sodas and paper plates emptied of appetizers.  The dogs came in to greet a new visitor.  Monty was such a happy greeter he JUMPED on the dining room table to say hello.  I almost fainted.  He had NEVER jumped on any table in any house EVER.  We got him off quickly and then started laughing imagining what havoc he could have caused had the table been set with dishes, silverware, and food.  Could definitely have been worse.  He was fine after that — as he usually is.
Do you still raise the golden doodle puppies?  I often have people ask me where we got him.  Would you like me to send them your way?  IF so, how should they contact you?
Again, we want to thank you for Monty.  EVERYONE who meets him thinks he’s  a sweetheart — and he is.

Just thought I’d drop a note. Our two sweethearts are almost 2 already. I can honestly say the two girls are definitely the perfect breed of dog for us. We’ve had other great breeds but these two are everything I ever wanted. They make me so happy. Both think they are lap dogs hahaha. They love to snuggle, are very sensitive about being good and don’t like to be scolded. Lol. They are a bit timid at times but love everyone they meet.Hope you have a great holiday.

Hi Leetta,
Sorry it took so long to get back to you.  Telle, who we renamed Bella, is doing great.  Steve is training her to be a service dog.  She is a natural.  He takes her to the V.A. almost every week and she has become quite an item there.  So well behaved and brings comfort to people that are bed ridden and in wheel chairs.  At home she’s all puppy and likes to play with our lab-mix, Lucy.
We are really enjoying Bella.
Thanks so much,
Vicki

Hi Leeta,
We wanted to let you know we absolutely love Clifford. We have been having fun taking care of him. He is a great addition to our family. He is very smart. We put in an invisible fence in our yard, so he didn’t run away , he learned right away. He is now able to travel in our yard freely. He has graduated from one obedience class already and won the recall and sit relay. Our 5 year old loves him so much! Thanks Leeta for all your help with Clifford, for giving him a great headstart in life and for also taking care of him so we could pick him up after our vacation; that was a huge help.
Love,
Rob, Amy and Noah Steinmetz

Leeta,
Just wanted to touch base and let you know that “Stella” is doing GREAT!!! She is a total lover and snuggler and has not had a accident in the house thus far.
Loves to fetch her toys and already sits on command. Very Smart Smile
I did have her to my vet on Monday and she noticed a small heart murmer. She thinks she will outgrow it at 12-16 weeks, we will keep an eye on it as we are concerned with loosing our last dog to a bad heart. Her stool was clear, ears looked good, nice teeth and bite- our vet likes her too.
Attached is a picture from yesterday…it seems as she is turning lighter in the face every day.
We do have some friends who will probably be contacting you for a doodle or even for one of your rescue dogs. They will contact you by e-mail, I sent them to your website.

Hi Leetta! Thanks so much for talking with me today. We are certainly grieving the loss of our Tucker but I think a new puppy will be the healing touch my husband needs. We are looking for a laid back, curly male and understand that if I get you the deposit I can have the pick of the litter. Thanks so much for listening to my grieving heart. I am attaching a couple of pictures of our Tucker….he has left a giant hole in our hearts. Blessings to you.

Leetta,

We got a puppy from you a year and half ago in May of 2012.  His name was Miller and he was from Mia and Cabella’s litter.  He is the sweetest boy ever.  All he wants to do is cuddle and chase balls!  He loves us and has the best demeanor.  My wife and I couldn’t be happier with the joy he has brought to our home.
We are thinking about getting a 2nd dog.  We’ve had such great luck with Miller we really want another goldendoodle.  Although we see you have goldendoodle puppies now, we would be more interested in a pup in the winter/spring timeframe.  We also would prefer the gold color over the black/brown color.
Do you plan to have any litters available this winter or spring?  If so, please let us know and which of your dogs will be having the litter.  I attached a couple recent photos of Miller to see how he has grown up.  He is very tall and lanky, and has settled out at exactly 70 pounds.
Thanks,
Justin and Jill Urbanek

Thought you might like an update on how Caileigh and the McGowens are doing.  She is still growing  but slowing down, hopefully.  She is now about 44 lbs., has been spade, and loves going to the doggie day camp (half days) twice a week.  She retires to her crate when we go to bed in the evening when the t.v. is turned off and I say “Caileigh, it’s time for bed.”
In the morning, she first comes in and says hello to which one of us is still in bed at 6:00 a.m. and then, after going out, eats a very hearty breakfast (in three minutes or less).  All meals are eaten lying down, guarding her dish.
We’ve been through basic training and are about to start on distraction training with her.  She is very, very smart and is training us quite successfully.
She’s been groomed and, as you can see from these pictures, now has lost her puppy coat and is quite wavy.  Everyone who sees her thinks she is BEAUTIFUL!
She is getting better at riding in the car though she still wont ride unless she is on my lap, with papa driving.  She chases the birds and treed her first squirrel this week.  She still eats my pansies and loves watching t.v.  She tries to catch the football/basketball/soccer/hockey players –whatever is moving on the field when running.
Hope all is well with you.
Cheers,
Mercedes

Hi Leeta,
Remember me?  Tomorrow will be Abby’s birthday.  We picked her up from you, she was the only one left in the litter from Cabela and maybe Mia??  She is such a laid back loving dog.  I can’t remember if she is 3 or 4 tomorrow…but she has been such a joy to have.  She share’s our home with Willow, our standard poodle who is 2 years old, and they get along so well.  Seems like they are big sis/little sis!  She loves getting her hair brushed on the grooming table, or any where for that matter!!!  We just love them both so much.
Hope all is well with you.

Thought you might like to see a pic of Archer. He’s been a very good dog and has been very easy to train.  Soon after getting him home he learned how sit, stay, lie down and he “heels” well when being walked.

Leeta,We LOVE HER!  Even when we are exhausted with keeping her from chewing on us, our clothes, our shoes,and the rugs, playing tug-of-war to wear her out, or making the multitude of trips down the stairs to have her go to the bathroom (we live in a raised ranch), and have just about reached the limits of patience, one look from her and we just melt!

Caileigh is “a frisky pistol”, to quote my husband, Bill.  Everyone who sees her thinks she is adorable and so loveable.  She LOVES everyone she comes in contact with, though she isn’t completely cured of showing that love with a few nips now and then.

What a love she is!  She races into our bedroom as soon as she’s awake in the morning and tries jumping up on our bed. During the day, she follows us when we go to another room, including the bathroom—her most favorit place to sleep during the day.  Yesterday she discovered how much fun it is to peel off some of the toilet paper and leave a trail of shredded paper behind her.

She actually watches t.v., particularly the hockey games and actually tries to catch the moving skaters as she follows their movements.

Last week Caileigh and I attended her first puppy training class. She’s very, very smart and can be quite independent at times. Her training is progressing very well.  She sits, even without command and comes—when we get her attention. She also, fairly consistently obeys the “down” command.  We’re still working on her nipping/biting as she has not yet lost any baby teeth.  Most of the time we can distract her by providing a stuffed animal/tug toy.  She LOVES playing catch with a tennis ball down the hallway and tug with her squirrel.

When hungry, she barks demandingly until you give her food and water. Though she does not bark to go out, she is pretty well house-broken, except when we aren’t paying enough attention and she gets a certain look in her eye, silently telling us it’s time to go out. She now sleeps from about 9:30-10:00 p.m. until 5:30 a.m. and goes immediately she gets outside.

Caileigh is quite the explorer.  One of her favorite pastimes is prowling in her “jungle” —our perrenials (mostly phlox and daylillies) in the garden.  The plants are still a bit taller than she is so all we can see, if at all, is the movement of the plants as she moves in and around them. We had a new fence installed in the back yard yesterday (our old cedar fence was more than 20 years old and a section of it was blown over last month during a storm).

She still gets car sick when in the car longer than a half-hour. Last week we traveled out to our get-away home near Galena, IL (a 2 1/2 hr. trip).  She was car sick on the trip out and on the trip home. However, she manages the trips to the vet (15-20 mins) with no problems.  Though very nervous initially, she is gradually becoming a better traveler—though she wants to be held and, so far, is not willing to ride in the back seat or on the floor in the passenger side well. The vet recommends I get some Benadryll before we go out to the Apple House next week so we will see if that helps.

She has had two distemper shots, frontline and heartworm doses once and will have a second dose of each in the next two weeks.  As of yesterday, she weighs 19 lbs and is doing great.  She still has her hernia which the vet says will be taken care of when we have her spayed.

I’ve attached a few photos.  Please let me know if you are able to download them.

Hope all is well with you.

Cheers,
Merc

Leeta,I’ve attached a couple of photos of Caileigh exploring her new home.

The trip home was uneventful except for a small bout of car sickness near Portage.  However, in fairness to Caileigh, she did everything she could to warn us we needed to stop.  Unfortunately, there wasn’t a place until we got to Portage and by the time we stopped the car to let her out, she was already sick.  However, after she did and went to the bathroom, she promptly fell asleep and slept the rest of the way home.

Once home, she discovered the backyard grass and plants on the patio.  She seems to think she is a vegetarian and tries tasting the leaves of various plants we’ve already planted this spring—which we keep stopping her from eating.

She already has us well-trained.  No accidents in her crate or in the house so far.  At 3:00 a.m., she discovered how to navigate the front steps, inside the house and outside (we live in a raised ranch—8 steps from ground to front door and 8 more steps from front landing to main living room floor).  However, she refuses to come in the front door by herself and wants to be carried over the threshhold. We just sit and wait her out.  Eventually she comes in.

She seems a bit off her feed, though she has been eating the dry food you gave us, a bit at a time.  How much should we be feeding her and how many times a day?  She is drinking plenty of water.

Her favorite things are (a) rolling in the grass and running alongside of us; (b) chewing on the soft frog and hedgehog toys; scolding us, and sleeping.

She’s really something!  Will keep you posted.

P.S.  The extra $100 in our check is a donation to the shelter.

Hi Leeta, Just a quick question for you. We took Rosie to the Vet yesterday and they asked if her parents had been checked or certified in regards to their hips. They did not see any problems, but just wanted to know for record keeping.

She is a fantastic dog. Everyone who meets her thinks she is fabulous. We have been promoting your business!
take care, Erica Bouska
