After many wonderful
years with our BigMamaDood we said our very sad goodbye to this
incredible friend. Zeitel was our first dood and was the inspiration
for us to begin breeding goldendoodles nearly 10 years ago.
Once Zeitel came into
our lives we just couldn't get enough of these delightful creatures.
She made us laugh until we cried which we did right to the end.
Zeitel was our "goofdoodle", Bill's forever fishing
buddy, the queen mother of all doods, our protectress, a wonderful
mama to three litters, and the "BigMamaDood" who watched
over countless pups that passed through our kitchen.
After she finished having
her own pups she assumed the role of guardian protector for all
pups that entered in. She didn't want them to come near her but
she always parked herself where she could keep watch over the
litter. If any of the other dogs played too roughly and a pup
yipped Zeitel would rise to her feet to make her presence felt.
If the rambunctious offenders didn't listen she would give a growl
and they knew immediately that they had stepped over the limit.
She is deeply missed
and we give her a daily nod as we pass by her resting spot on
our doodlejaunt up the mountain. Thank you Zeitel. You are not
