Daisy Graduated Puppy School!

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jun 8, 2007 in Our Goldendoodle Puppies

Today Daisy finished her puppy obedience class at PetSmart! How cute is this picture?

She can sit, stay, walk on a loose leash, lay down, ‘leave it’, come on call, roll over and give a ‘high five’.

Here’s Daisy with me – this photo came out really weird because of the way I was squatting down, but she looks cute anyway…

After class today, I signed her up for the Intermediate Obedience class – it starts next week.

She also had her 4 month vet checkup last week – she is now almost 26 pounds (she was 18 at her last appointment). She’ll probably be about 50-60 pounds when she’s full grown – just a big, fluffy teddy bear!


An Exhausting Day

Posted by Kathy Torrence on Jun 8, 2007 in Family Stuff, Our Goldendoodle Puppies

I don’t know how teachers do their job. I love my own kids (really, I do!), but spending a whole day with LOTS of kids – it’s just so draining for me!

Yesterday, I went on a field trip with my son Matt’s second grade class to the Cape May Zoo. Here are some little monkeys looking at the little monkeys:

We had a good time, but after trying to keep track of so many kids, I was just exhausted by the end of the trip. Teaching is definitely NOT the profession for me.

After the school day, my friends and I decided to get our dogs together for a little puppy playdate. I tried to take some photos, but the dogs were running around so fast, most of my pictures look like this:

The dogs had so much fun! On the left is Zoe, a Newfoundland; in the middle is Daisy, our goldendoodle; and on the right is Max, a golden/collie mix.

My friend Marie has a WONDERFUL pool, and her dog Zoe loves to swim in it. It so funny to be swimming at her house and see this HUGE black dog come in the pool and swim beside you!

We decided to see if Daisy would like to swim with the other dogs. Daisy did go in the pool (with some help from me) and she did swim, but I think it was still a little overwhelming for her with all the kids there. But I’m sure she’ll be swimming right along with her doggie friends by the end of the summer.

It was really a LONG day – in addition to the field trip and the doggie playdate, I also had a church meeting yesterday morning at 6:30am. And after the doggie swim fest, I had to feed the kids a super quick dinner and rush both boys off to baseball practice by 5:30pm. At the end of the day, I was in bed and asleep by 8:15 – am I getting old or what?!?!
