We wanted to send you an email to let you know that Archie is wonderful, and that we love him very much. He’s adapted to life quickly and slept right through on both nights so far. We’ve had his crate in our room which has probably helped. He’s also letting us know when he needs to go out to go to toilet, which is great. We’ve been following his feeding routine, which has continued his dry nights (so far).
Also, and I was amazed at this, he let me put a collar on him without worrying at all, and we have already been on a few small walks, including a very exciting exploration of two of the parks around the house.
We just wanted you to know that he seems happy, and that we will take good care of him, and lavish him with a lot of love.
We will stay In touch and send through some pics. Here’s one of him from 30 minutes ago – having a nap on the sofa.
Thanks again for all of your help, we really appreciate it, and are thrilled to have Archie with us.
Take care, and good luck with the other puppies!
Thought you might like to see Leo as he approaches his 9 months milestone on 12th Feb. He is utterly gorgeous -has just had the full works from the Dogtails lady last week -bathed ,blow dry and clipped -he loves it all!
He is an adorable pup -so friendly, intelligent and no bother at all -he has a superb nature and boy does he have his Dad’s chunky build -He is a solid 17.6 kg now. His coat is to die for -so thick and curly and very very soft. He does, in a certain light, have a faint chocolate tinge to his coat -from his Mum I presume! He is groomed every day and he likes it a lot -also likes the hair dryer so that was great during the snowy weather.
I am so glad he is part of the family as every day with him is a joy -he loves his walks and is very good at coming back when called and doing all the basic commands -he can sit, lie down ,give a high five and a paw and do a lovely beg. He really likes pleasing you and he also enjoys a cuddle when he just drapes himself all over you and sighs contentedly.
Hope all is well with you and the family.
Have been meaning to send you a message for months. We have had Maisie, our Australian Labradoodle for just over a year now. What a joy she is! Extremely loving, very attached to her Daddy. Full of energy, I and fellow dog walkers are amazed at just how fast she can run. I met a couple with a 6 year old Whippet and she out ran her by quite a bit.
She has settled into our family very well and is loved by everyone she meets. We are now considering a wee sister for her as a good friend is breeding her Cocker Spaniel.
Just wanted to let you know just how delighted we are with our amazing Maisie!
How are you? I just wanted to let you know that Hector is doing great. He’s very settled and very much feels part of the family. Him and Kit really get on great – they’re always passing each other toys to chew! Very handy having them both teething at the same time! He lets Kit climb all over him and just wags his tail.
He’s doing great at his puppy class and on Saturday we’ll find out if he gets to graduate to Level 2. He’s been very eager to please and responds well to the training. Brodie comes to the classes too and he loves them – he’s great with Hector and plays football with him.
The potty training only took a week. We gave him a bath yesterday as he’d rolled in something unpleasant and he now looks shiny and gorgeous – I don’t think he enjoyed it but he didn’t fuss.
Do you by any chance still have his brother or sister? My aunt has fallen in love with Hector and is now obsessed with Labradoodles!
Hope you like the photos – we took them in the garden today. The one of him and Kit is so typical of the pair of them – always together.
Thought I would give you an update on my puppy, Jess who is 17 weeks old …. As you can see, Jess has grown, not sure how big she’ll be maybe you can let me know? We think she’s gorgeous, she’s very clever and won the most obedient dog competition. She’s sociable, especially with the other Labradoodle next door to us. She goes on doggie walks with 4 other dogs regularly too.
I remember the day we came out to see your dogs Brenda, I thought Blondie was adorable, and Jet was very playful, we loved the way he jumped onto you for a cuddle. I thought if these 2 dogs are the parents, we are sure to get a great puppy. I want to say a big thank you to you for giving us Jess as we love her very much.
