Quincy True (Kelsey and Carson, orange boy). He is a delight. He's learning how to Stay in his Place. Just started it. On Friday I had people over for dinner and put him on his Place and told him to stay. We went in the family room to talk. About 20 minutes later I asked, "Where's Quincy?" I had forgotten I put him in a Stay. The little guy was still laying in the kitchen on his Place waiting to be released. What a smarty-pants and so darn cute. Thanks for bringing him into the world!
Also, loving our guy Quincy. He is such a great dog! He brings us so much joy and laughter. He has this stuffed lion that he LOVES. Carries it around like a baby. So cute to watch.
Hi Christine, It has been awhile since I have communicated with you. I am sure you won't be surprised when I tell you how much we ALL are in love. Charli is the most special dog. She loves all people and everyone fights over who she loves the most. (of course it's me). My son is home now and they are best friends and my daughter comes home from the city just to see Charli. We were away for 2 weeks and Charli went to our dog sitter's. They did not want to give her back. Jody Y.
Hi Christine- just thought I'd show you my girl "all grown up" on her second birthday. She just got her summer cut and I always forget how tiny she is. She is so good, extremely smart and she's hilarious to watch. I'm going on vacation next week and at least 4 families asked if they could take care of her because she's so fun and sweet. Her favorite things are her tennis ball(s) and she loves to chase bubbles. Hope all is well. Happy Summer! Tracey
Well, I wanted you to see some photos of our wonderful dog Louie. We'd love to see them on your website. He has a great disposition, wonderful with kids, smart, and the best looking dog in town. Clearly PawPad knows how to breed Golden Doodles. There are two other families in our town who have come over to see Louie and will be contacting you shortly. We are so happy. Stuart G.
Hi Christine, We want to THANK YOU for sharing Emma with us. She has been a great fit for our family--very true to her scores! She has been the highlight of our year. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Libby B
I just wanted to share a few photos of Dempsey (Desiree and Griffin's Bright Green Boy). He has already gained 4 lbs! We are very much enjoying him and our oldest has done a great job training him to sit, come, lie down and even stay! I wish we could perfect the potty training as fast but I know that will come with time! I am thrilled with how good he is with the kids and he only gets a little nippy with the boys when he gets excited. Thanks so much for making our family complete! We will be sure to recommend you to anyone looking for a perfect puppy! Thanks again, Tricia and Mike (We are a HUGE soccer family so it was very important to get soccer ball pictures!)
Hi Christine … I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how much we love our mini golden doodle! Lucky was from your litter born last Novermber 15th. We had him go straight to Tina for training for 4 weeks. This dog is just amazing and his temperament is nothing short of perfect. We have never had a dog as a family (we have 3 kids) and Lucky is just the best fit for us. He is a happy puppy but incredibly mellow. From the moment he came home to us, he has never even nipped at one of our kids. In fact he would put his open mouth on the kids hand or arm, but NEVER would close his mouth. It was just the funniest thing to watch. And unbelievably he has never chewed a single item in our house … although he does have a serious toilet paper fixation! He listens to us and obeys all commands. Recommending Tina for 4 weeks was the best advice you could have given us. We were amazed at what she did with him. Lucky has now been with us since Feb 3rd … and all commands are intact and now fully a part of his life. This little puppy has made us so happy and I just wanted to thank you for breeding such amazing dogs. My kids (and husband) are already pressuring me to get another! Know that you have made a family in Milwaukee very happy. Here are a few pictures of Lucky (attached and below … in one he is with a friend’s cat) … Amy
Here is a picture of our wonderful pawpad doodle, Murphy, who is 15 months old. She is sweet, smart and loves people. Thanks for breeding such wonderful dogs. Fred S
Hi Christine, We just wanted to say thank you for a great experience yesterday! We are absolutely thrilled with our choice - everybody is happy - and we can't wait until she is home with us. It feels like that time will never come! My husband and I are also business owners, as we told you, and Ron is very particular about his work, is quite a perfectionist and holds himself to a very high standard. When we arrived at your place we were so impressed with everything we saw. We could tell that you have the same business philosophies. Ron especially, with owning his own company, understands the dedication and work involved in maintaining what you have. Your patience and professionalism are impeccable, not to mention the cleanliness and beauty of your entire property. You are doing such a great job, Christine, and I don't mean to babble on, but we just wanted you to know that all your hard work and energy does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. We know that success does not "just happen". Keep up the fine work and the best of luck to you and your family. Please know that that little darlin' we picked (hopefully named Cha-Cha!) is going to a great home filled with love and respect for each other and her! Jamie
As Max approaches one, I keep thinking about you and what an amazing breeder you are. We couldn't be more happy with Max (green ribbon boy). He is loving, sweet, cuddly, curious, attentive, friendly........ The list could go on. He has been such a great addition to our family. We can't imagine our lives without him. You have provided us with such a gift. To say thank you almost doesn't seem like enough! Love, The Nash Family
We want to say thank you for Mookie. He is a great dog and we all love him. You obviously do a great job with these pups. He is healthy, happy and very smart. We are having a great time with him and couldn't be happier. Please see attached photo. Again, we really appreciate what you do. Best regards, Ellyn & Bernie
Just wanted to let you know Milo went to the vet for his 12 week shots today and the vet was extremely impressed by the vaccinations he's had up to this point! She said she's only seen one other breeder with such a thorough vaccination regimen. She said most breeders don't do that. Milo's doing great. He's up to 8 pounds and growing quickly. Very happy puppy! BTW...vet also said he's one of the cutest puppies she's ever seen. We agree of course. Hope all is going well with you. We still go on your website to check out the new puppies and watch Milo's video to see how he's grown! Below is picture of Milo helping Noah with his homework. Tami
Christine, Sophie just celebrated her 2nd birthday and is the the most lovable companion. Her mother is Fiona and her father is Harley. Sophie’s personality is so sweet. She puts herself to bed at 8:00 pm and would prefer not to get up before 10 am and adores everybody, particularly young men. She loves the male vet tech so loves going there, and I have teenage grandsons so she is in heaven when they visit. She still loves her crate, although I now leave the crate door open when I leave and close the door to “her room.” I can’t tell you grateful I am that I sent her to Tina’s for three weeks of training. She also loves scarves and won’t let me take them off, even at night. She sticks her neck out wants the scarf back on, thus she has quite a collection since she gets groomed every 5 - 6 weeks and receives a new one each time. Sophie is a true gift and has made my life so much fuller since my husband passed away 4 months before I adopted her. Life truly is better with a golden doodle and I can’t thank you enough. Best wishes to you and yours. Joyce
Christine, 1000 Thank you's for our green ribbon girl- aka Daisy. We could not ask for a better breeder or dog!! We truly only have positive things to say about you and PPD (Paw Pad Doodles). Daisy is funny, smart, kind and adds many laughs into our house. You are top notch as a breeder with your integrity and professionalism. I would recommend a PPD to anyone who asks. Having Daisy and PPD in our life has added SO much- thank you!!! Thanks again, Ellen
Attached are recent pictures of Ryder (Autumn and Packer’s litter, Feb 2013). He is a wonderful dog and LOVES the boat and fishing. We just took him to Ely MN and he had a ball. He jumped off the dock and nearly caught a loon! Thank you for the joy he has brought our family. He is so smart and continues to flourish in dog training. The trainers up here in MN say Doodle puppy-years seem to be 2 or 3 years long. He is silly, and a goofball and makes us laugh every day. He is awesome dog! Laurie
Hi Ladies, (Tina and Christine) I wanted to let you know that Jazmin met with our vet yesterday. He was EXTREMELY impressed with her and with both of you. He said she is in picture perfect health. He also was very impressed by her behavior and the meticulous documentation of her history, behavior and health records. He asked about her breeder and trainer and said he would recommend you to his patients who are interested. I thought you should know this because I believe you offered her the best start in life. She is one lucky girl. Thank you both for our amazing girl. Lyn C.
Hi Christine, Hope all is well! Just wanted to send you this picture of Teddy. He is growing up so fast. Here he is at 18 weeks (tomorrow). Red Boy- Chelsea Griffin May 28, 2014 He is so sweet and gets along wonderfully with our 10-year-old golden retriever. They are best buds. He is a joy to our entire family and seriously – look at him – he is the cutest puppy on the planet! Thank you again so much for doing such an awesome job as a breeder. We feel very blessed to have found you and to have Teddy in our lives. -Melanie
Hi Christine- Yesterday all of the Paw Pad Doodles from our neighborhood of West Newton got together for a reunion. All but 1 are Carson pups (Ruby Cohen is the exception)- and we have 10 altogether. I have included a few photos-- but you will see (in order of seniority)- Zoe (Bierly), Mouse (Salkever), Chloe (Kusiak), Snickerdoodle (Bloch), Martha (Salkever), Scout (Andrae), Gracie (May/Chu), Ruby (Cohen), Blue (Hodge), and Ginger (Conn). Without a doubt, we are highest pawpad population in the country given our small neighborhood (we are maybe 2 miles wide). Needless to say everyone adores their Pawpad pups- and this is a testament to the wonderful job you do. We thought you might enjoy these. Hope you are well and thanks! Katya
