Quick Bio:

February 22nd 2007

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!

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!

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.

There's a Neil Diamond song that says "Some days are diamonds, some days are stone"...today has been a bolder the size of Texas! Everyone here seems so sad. I went out to see Grama & Grampa last Friday and Grama looks so weak it scared me. I went over, even more careful than usual, cuz I just knew something was wrong. She still smiled at me and told me that I could never be replaced. Then she loved on me awhile, but it seemed so different! Grampa had tears in his eyes and aged right before my eyes! I hope they know how much I love them, cuz I know how much they love me. Momma said I will get to go again, just not on doctor visit days. I'm confused by all this but I will be there for them no matter what! They're my family and I need to take care of each of them...and I will!

Tomorrow is Wednesday, I hope it's a diamond day!


Very Long Summer

Hello All, well Mom and I are back! It's good to see all the faces that stayed and worked and are working thru all of Dogster's problems. A big thanks to all who are working so hard to get all the bugs taken care of!

Our summer was great as far as the weather went, it was warm and beautiful! I am very thankful for that.

Grama isn't doing well and is just wasting away from the cancer. Please pray for both Grama & Grampa, they have been together for 50+ years and it's very hard on both of them. Face it, cancer is hard on everyone!

Mom broke her foot in several places and managed to shear off the tip of another bone. She's in a boot and brace that goes up to her knee and is really making everything crooked, but she goes back on the 15th to see if she has healed. By then she will have been gimping along for a little over 9 weeks.

Things have changed and Mom's not real great on the computer but she puts her GRRRR Face on and charges forward and is catching on...very slowly! She managed to get pictures in her threads and rosettes. Who says a GRRRRR Face don't work! BOL BOL!

Our games will begin today and we really look forward to that. Sometimes I still can't log on to Dogster and I'm still not sure if we can fix up our pages without losing everything and going back to the blue back ground.

Well, it's late so I'm gonna try and drag Mom to bed, 48 hours up with no sleep is getting hard to deal with as she's aging.

So goodnight Dogster, sweet dreams for all!


We're so sad

On Tuesday Mom (Pam) found out that Grama's cancer has spread to her lymph nodes, in her chest cavity, lung, liver and her adrenal gland. We knew it was bad, but not like this. She has stage 4 cancer. Grampa and Grama have been together for 60 years! Needless to say our family is devastated. Mom is taking an extended leave of absence from being an admin in PNP. Nibbler will be doing her games. But we are going to miss everyone so much!

Mom, Dad and I went to visit and that always makes her happy. She loves me a lot and I adore her. There's a picture of me and her on our page, Mom can't make it be the 1st photo, when she does it won't show up on the games and things it's just a little square.

We really want to say how much we love you all...Pam, Mer thank you for helping Mom so much, we really appreciate all that you've done for us. There have been so much help for us over the years by so many great folks. You've held us up in prayer many time when we were down and feeling scared, thank you for all of your love, concern and prayers for our family!

We are going to stop by from time to time to see how everything is going. I would ask you to keep our family in your prayers as this is so hard. Grama knows that you've been praying for her and she says thank you so much! She loves Dogster and enjoys looking at all the different pages of you guys.

Mom has said it's bed time, so I need to go. Thanks again for your support, it means the world to us!

Doodle Hugs & Love
Dandi & Mom
