Likes:
Dandi loves to snuggle, she's quite a lap dog ...even at 71 pounds! She has learned that she, like most everyone else loves to play soccer. Actually anything with a ball, she's pretty good at stealing the basket ball, but she's a ball hog!

Pet-Peeves:
Having to be on her rug until she can control herself when the Grandkids come down. She loves to go in the pickup...she knows that means a trip to Home Depot where she is very popular.

Favorite Toy:
Her favorite toys are still Mom, Dad and the 8 Grandkids, but her favorite "toy" is Patrick, a stuffed green dog that she has had for about 2 years. She has never torn things up so she's got a ton or stuffed toys.

Favorite Food:
Purina Pro Plan Large Breed Puppy, Milk Bones, The last bite of anything Mom is eating.

Favorite Walk:
To Home Depot/Lowes and the like. She is VERY popular there and she gets to talk with other dogs and their owners. She still loves to go to see Dr. Buck our vet. She prances in like she owns the place and they all come running to see her.

Best Tricks:
Giveing you her "puppy" eyes. She can talk anybody out of anything. She likes to doodle dance on her hind feet, it's really a good show. She's getting pretty good at catching things when they are tossed to her. She' a very good ball stealer.

Arrival Story:
We had been looking for a puppy for quite a long time (this was the first time we have ever been without any pets.) I just happened to go online & found Goldendoodles. I emailed immediately & Jasmine (owner of Dandi's parents) emailed me & called that night . They had only been posted on line for about 20 minutes before I emailed her. We set up a time for the next night & as soon as my husband (David) got home we drove for about 2 hours to Jasmine's house. We met Dandi's Mom and Dad and all 11 puppies, they were all beautiful! They had all just eaten & all 11 were asleep. It was so cute, there little piles of golden doodle puppies sound asleep. There were only 2 females, one jet black and one golden (Dandi) after holding & petting both we chose Dandi (the golden). I knew the second I held her close to me that she was the "one" for us. We put her back down with her litter mates that she had been sleeping with but she didn't stay with them. She promptly walked as far away from the litter as she could go & turned & barked at them as if to say "HA HA I AM PICK OF THE LITTER". She was 7 weeks old when she came home & she has truely been a blessing in our lives. We can't imagine life without her!

Bio:
Dandi was born in Chehalis, WA and lived with her mom and dad until she was 7 weeks old. She is one of two females in a litter of 11. All of her litter mates were beautiful. We picked her out when she was 4 weeks old. She now lives with us (David & Pam) in Burley, WA about 2 hours from where she was born. Dandi had some health issues for some time but she received great care and her health issues are a thing of the past. She loves Dr. Buck and her staff. The way she prances into the office you would think she owned the place. She is VERY smart and loving. She obeys well and is easy to care for. She has learned to use her beautiful brown eyes to worm her way into everyones heart who meets her. Whenever we go on vacation if she can't come, Dandi stays with my Mom & Dad...better known as Grama & Grampa! Both of the folks are always happy to have her come & stay & she has it made there. Luckily they spoil her but also make her mind, isn't that what love truely is...spoiled, but not allowed to be out of control! We want her to be welcomed where ever she goes...and she is! Dandi has a birthday party every year with the same menu...tacos and carrot cake!!! We have a pretty good crowd and she loves getting gifts. Now it's 5+ years later and we still can't imagine not have her in our lives. She has touched so many people it boggles my mind. Even people who don't like dogs love Dandi. When we take her to Home Depot or Lowes David has to do the shopping while I stand & let people pet her & answer their questions. There will be people lined up to talk with us & you can her people calling for the rest of their family to come & see her. One night the folks at Lowes were so busy with Dandi they forgot to close the store & it wasn't until man came in & asked what time they closed that they realized the store was suppose to be closed a half hour earlier! Dandi has that effect of everyone.

Thanks to Webster (he gave me courage to try and fix my page) I now have a new background. It's our flowering Japanese Bell tree from last year! In the long run, I'm not going to keel over dead if I lost my page...there are better battles to fight!

Thanks Webster for that little nudge! It worked!

Dear Diary

This week started out rough and is just getting worse by the hour! My Mom fell at the nursing home on Monday night! Found out Lola's brother Max passed as well as Walker who passed in January! I was gone in January so I didn't know. My heart goes out to both of you families.

Today not only is my banner picture missing but now my whole background is gone. Some say they can see them but I can't. I have high speed internet and everyone's pages that I have check is all there. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR If anyone looks at may page can you tell be if you can see background and banner? Maybe I'm just a big ol' target! BOL Man, knew I should have started that diet, then maybe I'd be a smaller target!BOL BOL

 

I'm about ready to call UNCLE and give up!!!

I don't know what's going on, but I'm about ready to throw in the towel with Dogster. There will be days that I can't log on and then I can log on but not move and update!

Then I can't send gifts for days, then I can't open pawmail for days! Now the large banner at the top of my page is gone and I'm afraid to redo it for fear that I will disappear forever! Not that anyone would notice!!!

Life is so filled with sorrow and frustration that Dogster is becoming overwhelming for me! Pity party, probably, but I've tried my best to bring folks back who left months ago. I try to be a good admin, but they make it so time consuming and frustrating that I just don't know if I can keep this up much longer.

I thought things we're suppose to get better in the 1st quarter of this year...I didn't have these kinds of problems when it was at it's worst before. I tried finding out something about what's going on but couldn't find out anything, plus all my time is trying to update or send someone gifts to tell how sad I feel for them losing their dear pet!

Dogster if you're listening at all, please give me some kind of idea of how long this is going to go on...please help if you can. Maybe you can't fix, I know I couldn't, I'm not computer savy at all. If it were not for Pam & Meredith I never could have even had a page, thanks ladies, you been great!
