They are beautiful! Do you have your eye on one yet? Whos is the breeder? Are they a good mix of boys and girls? I remember one of the breeders (Jac maybe) posting about the ridgeline on the neck and down the back and how it bodes very well for a fleece coat. I can see the ridgeline so prominently on some of the pups, would love to watch and see if that's true here.
Congratulations, looks like you have a great selection!
Linda, the breeder is Dixie's Doodles. There are 5 boys and 5 girls.
I think that I am 4th on the list for "picks". I really do not have a gender preference. My biggest preference is for a pup that has the best temperment for our family. I would also really love to have this dog become a therapy dog and am committed to complete all the training necessary so I will let Dixie choose for me. Although if all dogs were equally suited I think I would prefer a fleece coated red/apricot boy!
We are now playing the naming game at home. One of my favorites is Matey, which also happens to be my DH's least favorite. My son also likes the name, but we still have 8 weeks to decide on a boy & girl name. Anyone have any names to suggest?
I would also be interested in knowing how they predict the type of coat.
Give us your list of names and we'll give our opinions! :lol:
I do know that a very good suggestion I read said: choose a name that ends in a vowel ....I forget the reasoning though...maybe they can hear it better?
Here are the latest pics of the puppies starting with the 5 girls...
And now for the 5 boys...
I could not resist posting this cute little face!!!
I put in an order at petedge.com for an assortment of toys, crate beds and other goodies. I wish I could remember who to thank for the petedge website tip, they are a LOT less than Petco or Petsmart. Linda, I did order the trio of grooming shampoo, conditioner and dematter that you suggested also. I thought that it might be a good thing to have on hand in case the puppy needs a little cleaning up after the plane ride home.
I believe it is at 6 weeks. The people on the list will be able to select in order. I think that I am 4th on the list which gives me many to choose from. However because I will not see them in person I am going to let the breeder choose the best puppy fit for our family. Perhaps if a few are right for us we will then make the final choice. I can't wait!!!!!!!!
or 54 Days!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I made quite a big purchase at Petedge and have different sizes and types of Kongs along with some Kong balls, 2 crate beds etc. I have a coupon for the crate at Petsmart so I think I will do a little Mother's Day shopping (cuz I am a soon to be Doodle Mom)! I will post new pictures of the puppies tomorrow, I think Monday is when we receive the puppy update from the breeder. We have a name if it is a boy - Matey. My DS told my DH that he realllly liked the name, and of course my husband folded and said yeah that is a good name!
