For those willing...

I would love to have some Halloween pics of ADNE Doodles sent to me to use for my homepage.

Since I won't have any litters for a while, I would love to put up a cute Halloween pic.  Any takers out there?

Take some time to read this study.

Any one who has bought a puppy from me knows that I advocate minimum vaccines and holistic methods for ticks and fleas.

This study, that I am providing a link for, is a worthy read for you to be the advocate for your puppy to NOT over vaccinate!  I know your vet strongly suggests 'boosters' and what not for the 'health and welfare' of your pup but studies like this prove it is NOT the best route to take.

Please, take the time to read this and you might just be providing your pup many more healthy years of quality time with you and your family.  :+)

BRINKLEY and her new guardian family!

On this gorgeous sunny fall day, Brinkley went to her guardians.  They were just so excited to see me drive up and met me at the front walk.  We toured their lovely yard and home.  I was shown where Brinkley's safe spaces were and smiled at her monogramed bed.  :+)

Without a doubt, Brinkley has a home that will provide her with a ton of attention and love.

Brinkley....you are a very lucky girl.

Socialization is sooo important!

Since I did not have an immediate guardian home for Brinkley, I took her to the local shelter that has a brand new gorgeous puppy 'social' building.  They always divide the classes in two - one side for the very outgoing, 'heavy duty' playful pups and the other side for the more reserved, shy ones. 

The first class I took Brinkley to there were only two pups - both Labs and quite playful.  The trainer put Brinkley into the other side alone with another trainer.  Brinkley was very good about going through tunnels, jumping on small tables as encouraged and checking out numerous toys.  We did some sit commands and 'Go Find It' lessons.  About halfway through, all three pups went outdoors to an outside pen.  The trainer cautioned me to be sure the other two Lab pups did not overwhelm Brinkley - if they did, I was to pick her up.  Initially, she was very submissive and would run behind me.  As we progressed, the choc. Lab introduced herself nicely and there was some play bowing going on.  The black Lab was way too rambunctious.

Unfortunately, we could not make the second class due to a wedding but we were there today and Brinkley had another calm Lab puppy to make friends with while indoors.  Outside, however, Brinkley was ready to 'meet and greet' with most of the pups with several being 'wild ones'!  She actually stood her ground with one 'in her face' but they shook off the confrontation and were fine.

I posted this because each week your puppy is growing like crazy and needs to be exposed to many more events in the world to absorb, adjust and utilize the lessons to progress to a confident canine.  I know Brinkley's new guardians will continue these lessons with training and lots of socialization.  I hope all of you are working hard at both training and socializing.  At this time of year, it is not hard - so many garden centers filled with people and mums; foliage tours, and crispy apple picking soon!  Enjoy!

Christie BRINKLEY is 13 weeks and 12 1/4 lbs. today!

I hope that all her littermates are as sweet as this girl is!  I could not have asked for a more compliant, gentle and loving pup to keep a bit longer for her guardians.  This coming Tuesday, Brinkley will join Anne-Marie and John in Rochester, NH.  They are waiting with open arms!

Brinkley tends to lie often with our elderly Annabelle as she seems to understand how fragile she is but is full of energy and impishness when playing with her mommy, Daisy.  Brinkley respects all the other 'ladies' that live here and it has been very harmonious.

Keeping my fingers crossed this lovely pup passes all her testing in about a year or so and becomes another exemplary breeding girl for ADNE.
