As temperatures begin to drop and leaves begin to fall, we're taking advantage of the autumn theme to bring you a veritable cornucopia of topics in this month's DogBlog. (That's a nice way of saying we had a lot of random things to share, and we wouldn't be surprised if you even found the kitchen sink!) The Acres has been bustling to say the least, so without further ado, let's get to it!
ROBOT SEALS in Japan
The last month or two have seen several of our newest pups picking out their owners and traveling to their new homes. Both of our black puppies have moved on, and Mike and Ellen (pictured) were kind enough to share with us how their Gus (formerly Shadow) is settling in...
"We decided that a male black standard labradoodle would be our puppy of choice. But, we would be happy with any puppy that caught our eye. A long weekend in Palm Springs led us to M--- at Aussie Doodle Acres. She just happened to have a black male ready to go to a new family. We received a very remarkable welcome when we arrived. The puppy we were interested in attached himself immediately to Ellen. He had selected her, it was love at first sight for both of them.
"Gus has been at home for almost a week now. He is absolute magic. He is well behaved and eager to please. M--- is right, the doodles are extraordinary animals. Gus has moved right in and joined the household routine without the trial and error expected of a puppy. He is the perfect dog for us.
"M--- is a caring breeder that truly loves all of her dogs. The kennel is immaculate and her gang is well taken care of. She cares about where the dogs are going and how they interact with prospective owners. We can't say enough about how happy we are that we found M---. She is the gold standard. We heartily recommend Aussie Doodle Acres."
Some time ago, we sent several kids from our first litter east, to stay with family in Pennsylvania. The only male from that pack, Bud, and one of the females, Muffin, are seen here enjoying their (colder) new home.
