Trying to capture the elusive Golden Doodle

I attempted, briefly to capture Rufus on camera the other day. These were the results.

Is this the same dog?

Our Goldendoodle, Rufus, hates to be groomed. For such a big, noble dog, he’s a complete wimp. And, he has fur like a buffalo – so he needs regular grooming. His hair was getting hopelessly matted, so he went to the groomers for a spring ‘do. Tell me: would you have guessed this was the same dog?

And after:

The camera freaks him out - can you tell?

It doesn’t even look like the same dog. He seriously used to look like he weighed 100 pounds – and now looks like his 65 pound self. I wish I looked like I lost 35 pounds after a good haircut.

And while we’re on the subject of dogs, Netta was snuggling with Matt the other day. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.

And OK, this is a lot about dogs – but this is my blog I guess so it makes sense. 🙂

This is what my lap often looks like when we are watching TV:

Rufus in the snow

Rufus, our just over one-year-old Goldendoodle, lives for the snow. He is never happier to be outside than when it is snowing – something I only wish I could relate to.

This weekend I decided to capture the hilariousness in the snow. Check it out.

Do I have something on my face?

Trying to eat the camera


Oh, hello there.

Anna and Netta are not so enthusiastic about the snow. I couldn’t get Netta to get off her dog bed to go outside.

Anna went outside, but was horrified

Meet Rufus, a sodaholic

You know that old joke about kids liking wrapping paper/boxes/bags better than the presents they contain?

Dogs aren’t much better. Ours have more toys that I can count or trip over in the middle of the night. Rope toys, squeaky toys, stuffed animals, nylabones … But what they want most are discarded socks or empty pop bottles.

Glug glug glug

Hey, it’s recycling, right?

Looks like we're not the only ones addicted to soda.

Good to the last drop

Sorry about the lack of crafts tonight. Feeling a bit under the weather and the most entertainment going on around here is watching a big, dumb dog pretend to drink soda. Ha!
