Kai is a Dexter x Juliet Pup.
Things are great w Kai & me! I still think I’ve got the best dog ever! I’ve had a really hectic 3months, care-taking folks post surgery and having company. I knew this was coming so I sent Kai out for 2 weeks of boarding-training with a small business near Denver in late June. In their words “You brought us a great dog & we just polished her up for you!”
When my 3 grandkids, one a 5 1/2 yr old boy terrified of dogs, arrived for a 3 wk stay, she was able to stay with us on her bed in “Place” for long periods, allowing that boy to relax around her while he saw his younger brother laying, leaning& hugging on her constantly. In a week’s time he was walking her on a short leash around my culdesac all by himself! We have bunnies all over the lawns & she ignored them!
They were fast friends by the end of the visit.
Yesterday my neighbor’s 15-month-old baby toddled up to Kai and poked her directly in her eye before we could stop him. Kai didn’t move a muscle! She allowed him to keep touching her face w/o moving. (My hand was between them by then, just in case, but she was steady as a rock.)
I will say this, too: I knew what I was getting in to with this breed choice and was prepared to make sacrifices, especially in this first year, to ensure our long-term happiness together!
Except for that training, she’s been with me almost 24/7. I made sure she had appropriate toys & chews & supervised their use. She went to puppy kindergarten. I made a sand pit for her to dig in (to save my landscape & foundation!) Since she was 5 months old I’ve been pretty religious about taking her on a bike ride every day, if not twice. I’ve even signed her up for some doggy daycare now & then so she can have social time with other dogs who have been screened for behavior. She is worth it all.
I have the companion pup I dreamed of!
September 11, 2018
We love her! Everyone thinks she is so cute. We recommend you as often as we can! The best part is her personality. She loves all kinds of people, dogs, kids…even her groomers and going to the vet. She is a very tolerant, easy-going and always happy dog. She very athletic and smart and loves running and car rides. The only thing we’ve found she doesn’t like is birds. We feel very lucky to have gotten her.

I promise Harlow is a human trapped in a dog’s body.

I forgot to send you this picture of Griffin on his fourth birthday ! Where HAS the time gone ?????
May 11, 2018
Romeo is 12 weeks today and we absolutely love him. I just wanted to email you and say thank you for giving us such a wonderful puppy! He is perfect. He’s smart, calm, loves people and LOVES the water. Today we took him on his first boat ride! Once again, I just wanted to say thank you! He has brought SO much joy in our lives and it’s all thanks to you!

She is a sweetheart with sass! Really mellow & well behaved (especially on-leash) for a pup. She was great with my grandkids visiting us at 5 months. I ride my bike w her 2-5 miles a day, which keeps her energy level manageable at home. I’ve worked hard at her training, but she’s easy and so smart. At this stage of puppyhood I try not to leave her unsupervised anywhere because she’s gonna get into something given any opportunity! She sleeps in my room in her crate (had to buy a 40″) and never wakes me up. She goes to bed @ 7-8 and sleeps 10-12 hrs! (Has from 10wks on!) I can go in & out of the room now that she’s older & she’s quiet ’cause she knows it’s bedtime. She’s not the least bit aggressive towards other dogs/animals. She is also not food driven – which is so nice. She’ll take an hour+ to finish her food – depending on what’s going on. She travels like a pro – whether it’s a morning of errands or a long road trip. Basically she’s the perfect dog!
She has an adorable trait of being able to entertain herself with the simplest “toys” usually outside. She’ll be tossing a chew toy in the air & chasing it, or rolling ecstatically on a twig then carrying it while running in crazy fast circles around the yard.
Everybody wants my dog. They stop to touch her or ask me about her & she’s always sweet & enthusiastic. She is so unique looking This girl is a walking advertisement for your dogs, Angela!❤️ (and I always tell ’em where she came from!). There’s actually another breeder here in Fort Collins CO, but their dogs are not the quality of yours by a long shot, in any respect.
I can’t believe I got her by calling you one week before her litter went home! What a crazy fluke! And a Parti pup to boot! I look at pics of your current litters and see only one parti out of them all and know how very lucky I was then & now. Kai was really supposed to come home w me.
Thank you & your family for raising such great parents for all these puppies!
April 5, 2018
My little beauty! Such a sweet girl … I’ll be thanking you for a long time, Angela!
March 28, 2018
Andrew and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful puppy. She is so adorable and loving! We couldn’t have chosen better. Thank you for referring us to Sherry for training as well. I am so happy we made that choice. She is amazing!!!
March 17, 2018
I wanted to drop you a note and share a picture of Max. She is truly amazing and such a fun and loving dog. We are so blessed to have her and she is a great addition and fit for our family. She is truly laid back and independent. She can hang outside in our backyard forever laying in the wind and chewing on sticks lol. She gets along with other dogs and is eager to play. She is going to be turning 5 months soon and is weighing in at around 30 lbs! We can’t wait to see how big she gets. She is a very good dog with a great personality and totally submissive to other dogs big and small which we are happy about because she has lots of dog cousins!
March 17, 2018
I just wanted to update you on Sparkles (Jingles & Denver’s) pup. She is one year old and it feels like a lot longer!
Allison still really loves Sparkles and Sparkles tolerates her (as seen in the picture). Sparkles has been great for her anxiety and has really helped her understand self-care.
March 14, 2018
I was looking for very specific qualities in a Schnoodle puppy.
I spoke with many, many breeders before finding Angela and none of them spent the kind of time that Angela did, trying to get to know me and exactly which puppy would best fit my family. She does temperament testing and has some sort of magical ability to match the perfect puppy for each family. The puppy that she chose for us is absolutely gorgeous, sweet and funny.
If anyone is looking for a Schnoodle- they should look no further than Angela’s beautiful Schnoodles.
March 14, 2018
We took home Orange girl, her name is now Bretta, but wanted to update you that she’s doing great! we are so happy to have her. she’s growing fast!
March 11, 2018
I purchased Denver from you last summer, best purchase ever! He is an amazing dog! Thanks again!
March 10, 2018
Hi Angela, I thought I would give you an update on how our Schnoodle Teddy is doing. He really is non-shedding ( which was our major concern), sweet, playful, yet even tempered. We all have fallen in love with him. Thank you for breeding such a wonderful breed.
February 13, 2018
18 wks & 35 lbs. So who do you see, Juliette or Dex? Note the full stretch! Nothing like a stinky braided bully stick, snow and 28°!! Heaven (and a happy, wet mess!)
January 19, 2018
I bought a Schnoodle puppy from you back in 2015 and just wanted to share a few photos with you!
This is Luxton! I can’t tell you how many compliments I get about how handsome he is. We have another Schnoodle about five years old from a different breeder and his coat is so different from Luxton’s and not nearly as rich and full. Luxton is jet black and has the most teddy bear-like fur. He is so sweet and so smart. Everyone who meets him just can’t get enough of him.
I know this note is long overdue, but just had to share how impressed I am. Deciding to buy him was a total spur-of-the-moment decision but I am so, so glad that I did. Thank you!
January 10, 2018
Boswell will be 5 months in a few days and OMIGOSH, is he Ever Wonderful! We take him on long 3-mile walks and the only problem is everyone on the trail wants to stop and meet him!! It’s crazy … he is just the MOST ADORABLE creature ever!
He has THE best disposition of any puppy we’ve ever had. Incredible breeding in that department, Angela.
Thinking of you and sending you Happy New Year blessings.
January 1, 2018
Happy New Year! Griffin has a little sister now, her name is Gaby and she is a little Corgi, eight months old. He LOVES her, even lets her sleep in his bed & squeezes into hers! They are inseparable. Just wanted you to know we are still amazed with Griffin. He is the smartest, sweetest dog in the world and we will forever be grateful to you for raising these amazing dogs. He is our heart!
December 6, 2017
Here is Maizie Blue, she will be 4 months 12/15/17, we love her so much.
December 1, 2017
Boswell is just a doll! He gets sweeter every day and is so smart. He knows how to sit, shake, laydown, heel on leash, and he can stay in place for almost 10 seconds. I measured him today and he has grown 2 1/4 inches in 12 days – 😮! He has made lots of friends in our neighborhood. I have an appointment for his 16-week shots on 12/7.
November 28, 2017
Just in case anyone questioned why they would want a Schnoodle for their kids. Harlow is so sweet and so very smart! Love this dog. Thank you so much!
November 5, 2017
He’s 2 years old! Happy Birthday!
October 9, 2017
Hi Angela. Just a note to let you know that Grace is doing well. She’s had all shots and is easy to train, eating well and on her vitamins. Enjoys playing with her toys and loves running in the yard playing with Kate’s dog and chasing squirrels. Thought I’d send along an updated pic. Hope you are well.
September 3, 2017
Max is growing fast! He weighs in at 12 lbs 6 oz today. He’s super smart, and I taught him to ring bells to go out and potty and to sit at the door and wait to be invited in, then he comes in and sits for his treat after going out. He can be very naughty trying to grab things out of the garden and he knows it’s off limits! We just love him!
September 3, 2017
We got BG (purple girl from Sasha’s last litter) in November 2015 I think she was born in August 2015.
I just wanted to let you know how much we ADORE our dog. She is the sweetest dog ever. You do a beautiful job and we wanted to say thank you.
Here are a couple of pics. She’s about 70 pounds.
July 31, 2017
Our Madi is from Katie’s first litter. Her dad is Choncie. She just turned two on July 23rd. She is my service dog now. She could tell I was going to have a panic attack and would wake me up, whine if I was driving, lay on my feet and push against my legs, hop on my lap and push against me with her paws or body, and more. She now starts making me aware when I’m just starting to get anxious. She only had to be trained in dog commands and how to ignore other dogs and people. She has very strong front legs and can push my son’s Rottweiler down while they play. She has free time in the yard and goes to dog parks. We are working in teaching her to fly in a plane. I can now drive, go to the store, or anywhere else without fear of an attack. On vacation she went to dinner every night with all 12 of us. I put her food and water under the long table. She ate and drank. Then she laid under the table at my feet unless she sensed I was getting nervous. She is my gift from God. She goes for walks with my husband and has already rode in the car or truck with us to 13 states. We have a trailer now and she will visit another nine states. She is flying with us to visit our daughter who is a Dosimetrist in Arizona. She is a joy to our family.

Charlie is doing awesome… Improving with every day. Charlie is about 21 inches at the withers and weighing around 34 pounds. So much to tell you about Charlie… we just love him so much! :-). Wishing you and your family a wonderful weekend!
Charlie at his first obedience lesson a week ago! 🙂

Ruby is a year old! Well she was yesterday haha. Thank you so much for bringing her into our lives!!
July 7, 2017
Thought you might like a quick update on Fred. He’s 14 weeks and doing fantastic! We love him so much; he really is the perfect Schnoodle! He is 99.9% housebroken and from the first night he came home, slept through the night. We found out that he doesn’t particularly like his crate, so when we go to work, he stays in the kitchen and patio room and he’s perfect! He sleeps in our room without any problems (he prefers the hardwood floor to his bed, our bed and the rug).
He LOVES the beach! We took him hiking then to the beach; he loves fetching sticks running in & out of the waves, chasing minnows, sand crabs & seagulls & chewing driftwood.
One thing that happened that I wanted to share w you. This morning I was downstairs w Fred, Rob was upstairs in the shower. I got really dizzy and nauseous & actually went into the bathroom & started throwing up. I was so sick I couldn’t call Rob & I was so dizzy I couldn’t stand up. Fred was right next to me. He started barking and kind of pacing back and forth. As soon as I started to throw up, he ran up the stairs, into the bathroom where Rob was taking a shower and just started barking at him. Rob said he barked and went to the bathroom door, then went back to Rob, barked, went to the door, & did that until Rob got out of the shower. Rob said he was just acting so different than he normally acts, he knew something was wrong.
We never taught him any of this. I didn’t tell him to go get Rob. It’s like he just “knew”. He’s such a great, loving, smart puppy.
June 23, 2017
He’s such a big baby!!!
May 17, 2017
Here is Oliver (Orange Boy), from last year’s litter: Mom Katie and Dad Choncie. We love him and he is the best dog ever!
May 15, 2017
Just wanted to give you an update….I feel so sorry for the other owners of Jingles and Denvers puppies because obviously we have the smartest most intelligent pup in the litter 🙂 We are so in love with our Charlie and he is already bell trained….YES! Slept through the night last night from midnight to 7am….played golf with the grandkids in the backyard yesterday and stole all the balls (picture attached) played so hard he didn’t even notice the kids leaving 🙂 That’s it for now but thank you for adding love to our life! If little Charlie plays his cards right he will live a charmed life with some amazing adventures!

Jake’s 1st Birthday!
February 27, 2017
Griffin’s third birthday! Notice how grateful he is for his cupcake !!!! LOVE doggie kisses !!!!!! He is such a sweet boy.
February 20, 2017
Max is doing great!! He is going to puppy class and learning to sit, pay attention to us, and not chew on my fingers and pant legs. Lol. His second class is Sunday. We plan to have him certified as a therapy/companion dog so we can take him with us on trips. He will see the vet again next week for his third shots. He is so smart, so lovable, and eager to please. He is doing well with Potty training. He Loves his crate and his toys but mostly going outside to play. We use a long leash for now. Fence should be up in April. His crate is by our bed and he seems to enjoy sleeping there and resting if I cant watch him or need to work. I put Sprout on the TV to keep him company if I am not in the room. He usually sleeps 8 hours at night with only one potty break. So far he keeps his crate clean and dry. He is getting taller and can now look and put his paws on the window ledge and check put tops of end tables. I can tell it seems to be his curious nature. He just looks but everything has been removed he could chew or eat. Lol. We are enjoying him a lot and he is everything we expected and hoped for.

Ruby is almost five months old and has grown so fast and she loves to play in the snow! We leave the blinds up for her so she can watch the snow fall and all the little animals in the back yard which you can see in the picture. She has such a great personality and it shows more and more everyday! I can’t believe how good of a dog she is Thank you again!
December 5, 2016
Hey! Mac is still the sweetest (and biggest!) girl and we absolutely love her!! I have been boasting to my sister what and incredible job you did with Mac and she has a new puppy she is interested in having trained so wanted to put you in touch!! Thanks!!
PS: Mac became a great swimmer this summer!!
December 5, 2016
Mom says I can’t touch anything !! ( And Sasha is watching from her basket ! ). It looks like a tree full of doggy toys to me !!!!!!!

Attached is a picture of Oliver at Thanksgiving. He was the orange schnoodle in the March 2016 litter.
He has become a wonderful dog (though a pistol at times). Great temperament, smart, healthy, active, friendly, etc…couldn’t ask for a better pet.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
November 23, 2016
Everything is great. He’s a lot of schnauzer in him!! A total clown..ha. Very protective of his house and yard against cats and squirrels…HA. We can’t trust him running lose outside so we’re in the process of installing a buried fence so he can run more off leash. He LOVES being out doors. Fully potty trained now, actually a few times he’s brought me his leash and collar because he wanted to go outside. He’s stolen my wife’s heart, she doesn’t like big dogs but she loves him and even lets him sleep with us!
November 21, 2016
Not a great picture, but just wanted you to know that we love this 1-year old Cooper Brion. He has almost got us trained like he wants us !!! I will tell you he has us wrapped in his love … wishing you a Blessed Thanksgiving!
November 14, 2016
Thought you might enjoy these pictures of Griff with his “mommy”, Sasha. Then he becomes a pointer when bacon is on the stove !! Sweetest, smartest dog in the world, never lets me get five inches from him !!!! We thank you, thank you, thank you for this wonderful blessing to our lives.
October 25, 2016
Hope things are going well. I wanted to send you some new pictures of Newman with his baby sister. If you ever have anyone that wonders about a Schnoodles temperament around babies…here’s your answer:) He is so in love! He has to supervise feedings in the middle of the night while I’m nursing her, and every time we come home from being out he goes straight to her carrier to check her out and kiss her face. Such a gentle giant!
October 15, 2016
Ruby is doing so well and is getting SO BIG!! Her colors are so pretty and she is super smart! She loves playing and running around in the backyard! I couldn’t have asked for a better dog! She fits right into our family and has a great personality! I can’t wait to take her camping with us. I know she will love it! I think she will love swimming too, she already tries jumping in the tub whenever she can and loves taking baths!! I will send more pictures when we can take her outside more after her shots. Thanks again!
October 6, 2016
She is so wonderful!! She is the absolute sweetest pup and we just cannot get over it. All the kids in the neighborhood love to play with her and she could not be more gentle. She’s pretty big and an excellent swimmer now (she loves the water)! We feel so lucky. She’s got her head in my lap right now.
September 21, 2016
We’ve had Ruby for only a short time and I can tell you I am very impressed with her temperament and intelligence. She has already mastered several commands including Sit, Down, Off and Leave it. Well, Leave it is going to take some more time, but she gets the general idea… it’s my shoes that are her toughest challenge to let go of.
We are all very happy with our choice in Ruby and I think Reilly is the happiest. Her colors are amazing and she is generally well behaved. The whole family is taking part in her training and we think it’s going very well.
We’ll send you some pictures after we get her shots and can get her outside more. Thank you again for accommodating us through our crazy decision-making process. You’ve bred a very nice dog and have provided us with a wonderful addition to our family.

Duke loves lying on the bed watching TV.
We love him!!
Well, I can’t speak for Rowdy.
September 12, 2016
Pepper had a GREAT first day! I cannot get over how friendly, happy, and sweet she is. She even slept through the night. I am very impressed and it is obvious that you did a great job
August 1, 2016
Just wanted to send a couple pictures of Zeus. He turned 1 today. He is truly the best dog ever. We are so lucky and grateful to have him. He’s loving, protective, fun and unbelievably smart.
July 31, 2016
Asher had his first haircut yesterday and did great. His brindle fur and coloring is beautiful. He is now 50 lbs, house trained and loves the girls. His personality is very playful, protective (especially around males he doesn’t know) and pretty calm. We love our boy so much!! Thank you.
July 22, 2016
Just wanted you to know she is enjoying her family. We all love her!
July 19, 2016
She is very sweet. There is not a bad bone in her body!
If she wants our attention she will literally while we are standing get on her back legs put her front paws on us and paw at our shoulder. Mostly to my husband
We are still trying to train her to stay very close without a leash and hoping as she gets older it will become easier
She loves everyone! I am home all the time so she is my shadow until my husband comes home 😀she is like a human in a dog suit lol
July 15, 2016
Thought you would appreciate an update on Rudy who is celebrating his 1 year birthday today. He weighs 81 lbs and we love him to bits. Have you heard from his brother’s owner ?
July 11, 2016
Never thought black dogs would be so hard to take pictures of…HA. I’ve attached the best picture we have of him taken at 10 weeks of age.
AJ has quickly become a huge part of our family. He pretty much goes where we do, baseball, softball games, cookouts. He goes with us to visit my mom in the nursing home, he likes to sit/lay at the doorway of my mom’s room and watch everyone walk by, the nurses and residents love him.
He gets along great with our Bichon (Murphy), they chase each other around nonstop 2-3 times a day. Then plop down and take naps.
Potty training is what it is for a puppy. If were not Johnny on the spot taking him out he’ll do #1 FAST…HA. I have a feeling in the next 2-3 weeks he’ll get it.
He’s not much of a lap dog, would rather take naps alone and doesn’t want anyone to bother him. Which is something new for us but I like it that way. He gets to sleep with my wife and I along with Murphy, when he gets bigger I have a feeling he’s going to want his own space.
He has quickly fallen in love with my wife and hates it when she leaves the room…HA. Even though she says she doesn’t like big dogs I catch her holding him all the time and is always taking him for walks. I caught her giving him a hug the other day…HA.
Thanks again for allowing us one of your dogs, we love him!!
June 28, 2016
Thought you might like the attached photo. We purchased “orange boy” from you back in October. His name is Leo and I LOVE him! He is such a great dog. I know your website says that your dogs love water and snow, and boy you were right. Leo loves swimming, boating and jumping at the lake. Thank you so much for pairing us up with such a great dog.

Just wanted to send thanks to you for the wonderful puppy! He has been a great fit for our family. We are so glad to have found you.
June 18, 2016
Evie’s first haircut wasn’t nearly as extreme.
The groomers and vets say has the most amazing personality for a puppy – incredibly calm, gentle, observant and polite. More like a Newfie puppy. And his feet are enormous! He goes for his last puppy shots tomorrow, so will be interesting when they see him again. :). I’ve often wondered what his litter mates are like now.
June 18, 2016
Madi is a blessing with a great personality. She loves to curl up beside us, go for a walk and romp with other dogs. When we can’t find her, we just need to look down and she’ll be there ready to be with us. Madi is incredibly smart and learns very quickly. She happily comes when called and likes to sing! Madi doesn’t bark a lot. We’ve taught her “no bark” for when we travel and stay in hotels. As our ambassador she likes everyone especially children and other dogs. Weighing about 17 pounds Madi is easy to handle and care for. Welcome to the family Madi. Madi’s 1st birthday is coming up the end of July!
June 6, 2016
Odin is a healthy 29 lbs. Last day of vaccines for him today. He is a sweet puppy…and way too smart. We just love him!!!
May 29, 2016
Just wanted you to know how much we love her! She is so smart and so sweet! She’s a little damp in this picture because she had been playing with a sprinkler outside. She knows sit,stay,down,come,kennel and crawl. She is also retrieving her ball. She surprised me the other day when we went to get the mail and she got the paper and brought it to the front steps all on her on! Her and cat still play and even sleep together. Thanks again!
May 24, 2016
It is hard to believe that it is one year since Penny joined our family. I cannot tell you how delighted we are with her. She is a happy, sweet girl and enjoys her older brother. She enjoys taking walks and playing. Everywhere we go with her people comment how beautiful she is. Our vet has commented on her breeding, we always give you the credit. You are a great breeder. I have included a few pictures so you can see how well she is doing.
Thank you again for such a great dog.
May 17, 2016
I just wanted to give you an update on our little schnoodle, Rue. She is such a GOOD puppy! She is so smart and playful and is great around other dogs and children. We have only had her 2.5 weeks and she can already sit, lay down, roll over, and spin. Potty training is going very well too! The best part is that she really does not shed at all! It is amazing! She is just such a doll and I can’t imagine not having her now. She has stole our hearts and is just so much fun!
Thank you so much for giving us the best puppy we could ever ask for! 🙂

Here are some recent pictures of the boys taken at Doggie Day Care. Remington is now about 15 mos old and Ryker is 7 mos old. They are awesome dogs and great companions!

Well, Porter has been home for about a month now and I think it’s safe to say he’s VERY settled in and comfortable with things. He is in puppy classes (top of the class…proud parent!) and already is great at sit, stay, lay down, leave it, come, shake, and my favorite part, off leash walking! Him and I spend a lot of time hiking off leash (more like dragging leash) on the nearby nature trails and he loves it! He is great with other dogs and people and becoming more and more vocal (I guess that’s the schnauzer starting to show). He is still very calm and glued to my side. I’m not sure if it is Gracy or Dexter genetics but he is for sure a Daddy’s boy and refuses to let me out of his sight. His mean growl and 27 lb stocky frame puts him well on his way to the watch dog I was looking for. Porter went to the vet today for more vaccinations. The staff there loves seeing the unique “furry” puppy grow up! Once again, thanks for an amazing dog. If you ever need a referral, please send them my information.

I just wanted to let you know that at 5 1/2 months old, Amos has already figured out ON HIS OWN how to do medical alerts for me. After he started sensing my attacks, we spent a few days stumbling through communication with one another, but once we worked it out between us, he hasn’t missed a single one!
Thank you so much for your choice of Amos for me! He is a total lifesaver and my little angel! He is the perfect choice for a service dog. <3

Porter went to the vet today. He is the only giant schnoodle under the care of this clinic-kind of cool to have such a unique dog! He weighed in at 16.7 pounds which means the veterinarian guessed him to top out somewhere around 60 lbs. Unfortunately, she wasn’t very familiar with the breed and after doing a little checking she guessed more around the 80 lb range depending on parental weights. His eyes, hips, stool sample, temperament etc. were all checked. He is a heathy boy! He does growl when new people pick him up which the vet thought to be playful but it will be something Porter and I will work out together as even his puppy growl sounds menacing to some. All the staff were very impressed with how well he sits and behaves on a leash. Again, he met several dogs and behaved fabulously with them. He received his second round of vaccinations today because he received his most recent bout greater than three weeks ago which means today was a perfect day to receive the second round as per the advice of the vet and the contract agreement (not to receive vaccinations within 3 weeks of each other). His puppy nipping and growling are coming along as is his training. He will be a very obedient dog one day as he picks up on commands quickly-unless his puppy brain decides he’s rather keep chewing on the shoe, chair, etc. Haha! His puppy classes start next week but in the meantime, I think it’s safe to say him and I will become even more inseparable. Thanks again for such a great dog! I couldn’t resist attaching more photos…Enjoy!

After almost 11 hours in a car, Porter made it home on the 7th. He’s been adjusting great! He took to his kennel like a fish in water and is doing great with introductory commands, potty training and getting to know everyone. He is a great napping partner and loves romping around in the snow. As per the contract, he will go to the veterinarian on Monday and I will follow up with you on that appointment. I attached some pictures so you can see how he is doing in his new home. Thanks for choosing such a fun, laid back perfect dog for me.

Cute family picture. Both dogs love to cuddle and are on Dad’s lap!! The little guy is Xena’s best buddy. Couldn’t ask for a better family dog than a Giant Schnoodle!
December 2, 2015
I haven’t sent any updates in a while so I thought I’d let you know how Xena was doing. We got her from you in February of 2014. She’ll be 2 on the 15th of this month. I think her parents were Oreo and Romeo but nit exactly sure.
We still love her to pieces and she has become an awesome sister to our little chihuahua named Samson, we took in when his previous owners couldn’t care for him anymore.
She is such a great companion dog to our family and is great with little fur babies too. She is happiest being as close to us and her little brother as possible.
Her coat continues to be beautiful as long as we keep up on the grooming. Everyone talks about how soft she is and are impressed with her size. She’s about 75-80lbs right now which I think is great if you like big dogs that don’t shed! She hasn’t had any health issues in all the time we’ve had her either. Only guess to vet to keep up on shots and regular heartworm tests to get the monthly prevention stuff.

I just wanted to tell you that we took Amos to an outdoor restaurant to see how he would do in that situation. All the books say to not expect service dogs in training to do well their first time out and not to expect being able to complete the trip without leaving early.
We were with a party of 6, outside with birds and distractions, everyone with food, and Amos was PERFECT (like a seasoned pro) for over an hour and a half! I just gave him a bully stick and he was quiet and behaved perfectly the whole time!
Thank you so much for all the time you put in with him. He’s my absolute angel!
I’ve had a bunch of my friends ask me to make a FB page for Amos so they can see how his training progresses. It’s an easy way for me to update a lot of people all at once. If you want to follow the FB page, here’s the link:
I’m sort of doing it from Amos’ point-of-view. I hope you like it. 🙂

Amos slept through the night just fine. He met some new friends at the dog park here at our apartment complex and all of the other owners were very impressed with him. One of the other dogs took a ball from another dog and Amos went over and gently took the ball from the dog (right out of her mouth) and brought it back to it’s rightful owner! It was hysterical!
Here are some pix from last night!
He seems to be adapting to his new home well.

Good morning Angela.
I wanted to send you one of the holiday pictures we had taken this past weekend. Remi is now 11 months old and weighs 70 pounds. Ryker is now 15 weeks old and weighs in at 30 pounds (2 pounds more than Remi weighed at the same age). They are such wonderful dogs. The holidays will likely be chaotic this year and I am not sure I should even attempt a Christmas tree.
Ryker will graduate from puppy class this Saturday. He is very smart and easy to train…but very ornery! They both keep me smiling and laughing all of the time. They are the best gift I ever gave myself.
Happy Holidays to you and your family.
– Judee, Remington and Ryker

Newman had his distemper and lepto boosters today. He always does so well at the vet, and he weighs 29 lbs now!! He also knows how to sit, speak, and high five;) He’s such a great boy!

Bailee was a big hit with the grandkids.. She lit up when she saw them.. Sherry did a great job training her. Thank you! We are in Love!!

Ryker did great on his ride home on Friday. Remington is somewhat jealous at this point but trying to adjust. And even though my house feels like a zoo, we are enjoying our new baby very much! The boys will grow-up together and we will have great times.

Newman went to the vet this past Tuesday to see when he would need his vaccinations, as well as for a fecal analysis to make sure he’s still doing well. He did so well and all the techs fell in love with him. He goes back for his next distemper October 1st. They all can’t wait to see how big he’s going to get because he is the only giant Schnoodle at our vet clinic. The vet told me that he can tell that Newman came from a great breeder, he has a beautiful coat and bright eyes, and is in great health. He weighs 17.5lbs! Just wanted to let you know;)

He loves to cuddle with momma and run around in the back yard chasing Gus!

I hope all is going well in transitioning the new puppies to their forever homes.
We love blue girl or Daisy as she is now called. She is very laid back but also playful! She sleeps a lot but then has big bursts of energy! Thanks for picking her out for us. We feel she will make a great match for our family. She is very easily trained to go on the potty pads or outside.
Thanks for a great puppy!

We surprised our daughter with the news last night. She is so excited.
We put envelopes around the house for her to open with clues and with items of commitment, such as teamwork, patience and “homework” (meaning reading all she can on how to care for a new puppy). She committed to all of them and the last envelope had a picture of the puppies. She’s so excited and is taking her commitments seriously, asking so many really good questions at bedtime last night.

I just wanted to email you a recent picture of Remi. He is seven months old and weighs almost 65 pounds. We have been going to training classes since I picked him up in March and he is doing great. Yesterday he passed his CGC test.
Remi is a gentle, sweet, smart, and lovable puppy. Whenever we are out and about people want to know what kind of dog he is. Everyone wants to touch his soft fur and he loves the attention.
He is such an awesome dog…and he would love to have a brother or sister to play with all day long. I have told him he has to wait for awhile.
Thanks again for picking Remi for me and helping me give him a great start!

Just wanted to let you know that Finn is doing great and we adore him (even though we think he is part goat considering what he will eat given the opportunity!) He and my daughter Jamie won first place in her camp dog show for obedience. I have one happy girl! Hope you are having a great summer.

Lincoln is doing well. He is so easy-going and non-aggressive.
He passed his first puppy training class. The instructor could not believe how laid back he was during class time. He allows my granddaughter to lie on him, take things from him (they will actually have tug of war), and he only barks if he feels something is not right with the environment. He sleeps on the bed or on the floor part of the time, but other nights, he prefers his crate. At seven months, he weighs just under 70 pounds. The vet said he is going to be a big boy. He had learned to stop the counter surfing even though he will stick his nose up there just to smell things. He has jumped onto our dining room table in order to persuade the cat to play. Needless to say, the cat is not impressed. He likes to step into the shower with me, and has even hopped into the bathtub before I could get in.
I do not believe there is a mean bone in his body, but I do like it that he accompanies me to the door when the bell rings. He is impressive just to see due to his size. He is my buddy.
I hope you and your family are doing well. Take care.

Can you believe our sweet baby Griffin is a year old today ???
