Mini Doodle-Fest in Devon

The ‘Doodles Do Devon (again lol)

WHAT a fantastic summer me and the ‘doodles have had – seems like we’ve been camping for-ever!!!

We’re just back after an absolute fantastic week in very warm very sunny glorious Devon with our great friends Paddy & Lynn – Paul and Sharon and their gorgeous girls Labradoodle Biddy and Goldendoodle Amber…

Paul and Sharon are assistant managers at the wondrous Harford Bridge Park camping and caravan site. Trust me if you’re looking for somewhere special to visit Dartmoor and beyond – that’s the place for you – and no I haven’t been paid to write that!!!

You can read more about this fantastic 4 star dog friendly camp site at my partners camping blog HERE

We were based a couple of miles outside the lovely friendly town of Tavistock. Trust me our ‘doodles caused a big stir – especially the big lad Wally – wherever we went we had a queue of people wanting to fuss and find out all about him lol…

We had two amazing days at the beach and were joined by my friend Tamara and 3 of her stunning and very excited ‘doodles – see the photo above as to just how excited they were for a mini doodle dash come doodlefest!!!

We also bumped into other Labradoodle and Cockapoo owners and had a great time chatting about our gorgeous dogs. There was so many doodles the cafe staff asked if it was ‘DoodleFest’ lol. Sadly we’re not allowed to call a meet up by that phrase as it’s copyrighted (a long story lol) – but hey who cares – the dogs had a ball!!!

All of the dogs looked as though they had a fantastic time – and really enjoyed the BBQ’s at night lol…

That’s probably our camping trips done and dusted for this year – roll on next!!!

That’s it for now I have a mountain of camping washing and dog blankets to sort out and indeed replace my trusty old washing machine (which broke at just the wrong time lol)…

Until next time – happy doodling!!!

Happy Birthday Millie 6 Today!!!


Wow 6 whole years have passed since we first sat up in bed with the laptop out for many a long night trying to find a photo of a dog we spotted in Cornwall!!!

It was Padstow and this most gorgeous fluffy dog was the other side of the harbour – we fell in love with the breed instantly but by the time we got there the doodle had gone!!!

Finally after what seemed a fruitless search we found a photo of a Goldendoodle and thanks to Sam at Gun Dogs UK we were lucky enough to find our beautiful girl Millie who was the last of the litter! The rest as they say is history :)


Millie has a Leaf for an Ear!!!

Millie has and is a fantastic family dog – very loving – very good natured and is much loved by all who know her and whoever she meets! She adores children and has a real soft spot for teenage boys – if you catch my drift lol…

And of course and despite a troubled time she gave birth to 9 beautiful and amazing puppies!!!

She adores water – the muckier the better – is a real Tomboy and can get filthy in the cleanest of places lol – she has a weakness for chasing birds and rabbits and adores fresh mince as a special treat…

You really couldn’t wish for a better dog and it’s true to say the same can be said for any Goldendoodle and Labradoodle – and the rest of the ‘doods and poos of course!!!

Her dad has worked and owned many dogs in his life but proudly states she’s the best he’s ever had – even if in her early years she was a bit of a ‘madam’ lol…

If you’re thinking of getting a ‘doodle – stop thinking and just do it – Millie has given us so much pleasure and joy over the last six years it truly is magical!!!

Midland Christmas ‘Doodle Dash

Next: Meeting: Coombe Abbey nr Coventry
Saturday 28th December 2013 11am

It’s the best way to get rid of any excess pounds we’ll all no doubt put on over Christmas. It is of course the Midland ‘Doodle Dash at Coombe Abbey Country Park nr Coventry.

All are welcome and despite it being arranged by Poodle cross owners – all well behaved owners and dogs are more than welcome :) And trust me your dogs will love it and you’ll get to meet a ton of like minded people..

It’s our regular winter meeting place and attracts a ton of ‘doodles and their humans. It’s about a 2 mile walk through lovely park land – though it can get muddy so wear your new Christmas wellies!!!

Once the ‘doods have gotten all muddy and smelly there’s a lovely spot with shallow clean water where they all love to play and of course get rid of that stinky gloop!!!


For further info use the contact form below or check out the extremely friendly Facebook group: Doodle Friends Midlands Meets – and from there you can connect to the Facebook group…

Ok we all hope to see you there and trust me you and especially your dogs will have a ball!!!

All that’s left to say is have a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year…

Lots of love: Kate ~ Millie and of course Wally xxx

Wally Wins National Best In Show!!!

best in show labradoodle trust 2013

FIRST of all my deepest apologies for the awful lack of blog posts on Goldendoodle Diary…

No real excuses other than work – ‘doodles and home-life has kept me way way too busy!!!

So there’s a lot to catch up with – none more so than our award winning Goldendoodle Wally…

As you can see from the fab rosettes our soft big lad won Best Goldendoodle and amazingly Best in Show!!!

And we’re not just talking about a village fete either – this was the official Labradoodle Trust!!!

To say I was blown away is an understatement – but typical Wally he took it in his stride…

In fact whilst the other stunning ‘doods were prancing and standing perfectly still in perfect poses…

Wally grunted lay down and crossed his legs in his usual pose (see below) lol…


We had a fantastic summer with superb weather meaning we could take the ‘doods camping a lot…

Last year was a complete washout with no chance of camping…

However I had a fab time with fellow ‘doodle owner (more like a fanatic lol) Julie and her pack…

It was a long drive up north but myself Millie and Wally were treated like royalty and had a great time…

Thanks so much Julie – and hope to do it again soon!!!

Not much left to say really – apart from Merry Christmas and a Happy Doodling New Year!!!

I promise there will be many more posts from now on and of course lots of pretty Goldendoodle photos!!!

We have a house guest at the moment – the lovely Labradoodle Biddy:


She’s an old friend of ours and Millie’s very best friend in the world…

And as you can see from the photo Wally even lets her share his favourite spot!!!

Okay that’ll do I have ‘doods to feed and chutney to make!!!

Stay tuned for updates on the next Midlands Doodle Meet at Coombe Abby Coventry…
