'CreamofBritish Paint Splash' and 'CreamofBritish Doris Day'
Our lives changed for the better, when Freddie (CreamofBritish Paint Splash)
entered our lives in December 2009. We'd gone through a difficult few
months, having lost my beloved bearded collie and jack russell within a
couple of months of each other. . . . we then purchased another puppy, and
within a week, had to have Ollie put to sleep, due to birth defects, that we
knew nothing about. A great friend of mine, contacted me, and told me she'd
found a puppy for us. . . . ..I responded, saying no way, i didn't want anymore
dogs, i had no heart left for another. . . . we were both absolutely heartbroken,
because of all we'd been through. Next minute, an email arrives, with a photo
of the dearest looking little thing staring at us. . . . i'd never heard of Australian
Labradoodles. . . . . and certainly had never seen one. . . . but here we were,
looking at one. . .and wondering if it was really what we both wanted. I must
admit, we were both feeling very cautious, about trying again - having lost such
a young puppy, i was apprehensive, and paranoid about there maybe being
something wrong. . . . i was assured by my friend, that "Debbie" does everything
properly. . . all the health checks etc etc. . . . . so arranged a visit. Twenty four
hours later, freddie was at home with us. . . . . . we'd met debbie, stayed there
what felt like 10 minutes, but was actually a good couple of hours. . . . chatting,
learning more about the doodle breed. . . we came away armed with a pack of
info on freddie, certificates, chip numbers, vet info, a fantastic guide to our
new puppies "development & training" - written by HER.... which i used daily,
i might add. . . . a book having the "perfect puppy" - which i also used
frequently. . . . . and with what felt like, a new friend. . . . NO, not the puppy,
but debbie. . . !!! Freddie settled in instantly. . . we were amazed. . . . we had
no crying. . . no howling. . . . he slept through the first night. . . . . and so
it went on from there. . . . . we now have what we call, a "perfect pooch" - he has
really, really amazed me. . . . . he's happy with whatever situation you put him in
. . . . . he's perfect when left home alone. . . . . he's perfect when taken out. . . .
.he's perfect when visitors are round. . . . he has a fabulous temperament. . . . . loves children. . . . . enjoys playing with
other dogs. . . . . He's intelligent. . .i've taught him tricks. . . . he loves to learn. . he loves to please . . .he's affectionate
. . . . and he makes us laugh, dailywith his antics. . . . .He's made so many friends. . . not only with four legs. . . . we've
been stopped soooooo many times by people, asking about him. . . . people stare and smile as they drive past. . . and
purposely walk towards us, in order to meet him. . . . . we are so proud of him, and love showing him off. . . . In fact
freddie has pleased us so much, that we are awaiting the arrival of Doris. . . . . another. . . . . yes, we decided that we'd
like to go through the freddie experience all over again. . . . and this week, doris is to join our family. . . . . and we simply,
can't wait. . . . So, if you are reading this, considering a doodle. . . . . . all i can say is "DOodle it" - and get one. . . .
you won't be disappointed, i promise. I would just like to end this, with a thank you, to debbie and her delightful doodles
. . . . . and as a tribute to Rosie, Arnie, and little tiny Ollie - because if we hadn't lost them, we wouldn't have met debbie,
and we certainly wouldn't have met Freddie. . . . and that too, would've been "our loss".

Subject: Re: Fluffy
In spite of her reaction to the stitches, she has been an absolute angel! She doesn't complain at all. You are clearly an excellent breeder who genuinely cares for her animals. Getting fluffy settled into our family has been so incredibly easy (touch wood!). She has taken to the crate from day one, she sleeps thru as you said and has only had 2 accidents since getting here. She is the most easy going puppy, and we adore her!
I really can't thank you enough.
I wouldn't hesitate in recommending you to anyone!
