My name is Jacqui,married to Mick (one legged farmer and artic lorry driver)!! I have 2 sons,Justin 29 and Dominic 24 and 1 daughter Samantha 22. I have 2 grandaughters aged 3 1/2 and 10 weeks and 1 grandson 3 3/4, Kira,Jasmine and Jay. I have 3 poodles and 3 doodles plus 8 other dogs! All are great dogs,some madder than others, but all lovely in their own way. We live on a smallholding so dogs have plenty of space to run about or laze about. We have a shire horse called Nu Nu, 7 cows,2 bulls,1 steer and 4 calves,2 geese,6 chickens and 9 chicks plus too many cockerals! Cattle and geese all have names too. My passion is dogs but love all animals,luckily Mick loves them too. Oh and i hate housework espeically as it takes me ages to clean my kitchen every morning due to dogs running in and out and a husband who cant do anything without making a mess! :evil: Sorry if i have bored you all with this long post,i am a chatterbox incase you havnt already guessed! :D
experienced hobby labradoodle breeder.all parents health tested and pups reared indoors and garden.f1s,f1bs and minis occasionly available.

I'm Steph, I'm 38 and have been married to Chris for 17 years. I have 3 children, Daisy (16), Seth (14) and Nancy (12). I have 9 chickens and am getting a dood in the summer (mid July) and I'm so excited about it :lol: I currently work as a teaching assistant in a village primary school, but completed my degree last year and now I am currently working on my PGCE (post graduate certificate of education) so I can become a teacher! But I am feeling very unmotivated at the moment and instead of studying I find myself on the forum :roll:

This is a great thread by the way :!: :!: :lol:

Wow :lol: Go, girl :lol: :lol:

I'm Cecilia, married to Hubbie (how old fashioned is that nowadays :lol: ) and living with half our possessions in a little house, awaiting the glorious day when the builders stop turning our house into a collander and we can move in.

We have a daughter, aged 23, whose graduation from Oxford we attended this weekend - very proud parents - who is going to train as a corporate lawyer (until she realises the futility of the rat race :evil:) whom we hope will provide for us in our old age (some chance) :lol:

Animal wise now we just have Jack, an 8 month old black (ish) bundle of Doodle fun we love dearly. I had to wait to have a dog again until we relocated back to Devon and I took a year's sabattical to get the house built, as I normally work as a free-lance arts manager running theatre and arts projects for various clients.

Now I am looking forward to being able to sit in my 'Do the Lot' jacuzzi bath, with a bottle of champagne, looking straight out to sea across the bay - and No, Jack will NOT be allowed to join me - the bubbles might go up his nose :lol: :lol: :lol:

Hello Kate,

I'm Tanya and live with my boyfriend Ian and our 13week old Labradoodle puppy, Samson. I'm 27 and we got since getting Samson 7 weeks ago, no longer have any hobbies or social life (only joking, but it does seem like he's taken over!).

I work in clinical research within the NHS. I take my hat off to those of you who teach, as I completed my PGCE a couple of years ago, and there is no way on earth you's get me back in the classroom!

I'm currently the laughing stock within my group of friends, who have all joined facebook, whilst I've joined a labradoodle website :mrgreen: .

Hello everyone
Thanks for getting in touch. It is always interesting to see how other families live, work and play. My hat goes off to all you carers - I think carers often get forgotten the phrase 'who cares for the carers' comes into my mind. Have met many parents caring for a disabled relatives and all of them are very special people. It is very nice to meet you all and I am very glad you are enjoying this 'thread' I think they call it!!

Hope you are all well and keep those posts coming - love to meet up with you all...We could do a world record doodle meet! Ha

If anyone has got 2 doods of similar ages can you tell me if you have encountered any problems etc?

Fliss where are you getting your dood from on the 8th June? I'm getting another one in June it might be the same breeder
Kate
