Kristi called the other day to confirm my application for an upcoming Arthur litter. Thank you for the confirmation.
If you have already received a similar letter from me it is because my .me.com isn't working right and I didn't want to take the chance that you would not receive a well deserved THANK YOU.
Just wanted to wish y’all a very Happy New Year and show you how beautiful our Dusty is! She was Storm Girl Red Dot (Saxon) from the 4/24/13 litter of Storm/Turbo. She was with you longer because she had fractured her hind leg. We picked her up in mid-Sept. Dusty is now almost 8 ½ months old, still jet black with that silver goatee. Some silver in the muzzle undercoating around the nose. She barely tips the scales at 20 lbs, with a full body of fur!! We refer to her as a “petit Medium” Doodle. She’s about 18” tall and 18” long. What a wonderful girl she is - loves everyone and so sweet! Our Vet says she is one of the most special dogs he has every seen, and so healthy. We love her so much! She’s in doggy classes, hopefully to be that therapy dog, even though she is still an energetic puppy. Dusty’s trainer is amazed at how smart she is; and how she likes to work a crowd!! HAHA
I was wondering, do you have a means to share email addresses with other owners from Dusty’s litter? None are on the FB site. I “met” Linny’s owner (Rachel G?) on the old Blog site, but cannot get to that information any more. I would love to catch up to see how the rest of the litter are doing if there is any way to do so!! My email address can be shared.
Thank you so much for the gift of these wonderful, loving Doodles!!
Our precious pup, Ruby (Agatha/Chile "Red"), turns 9 months next week, and we are absolutely head over heels in love with her! She gets cuter every day and has the best personality.
We are so thankful to Smeraglia, and always sing your praises to anyone who asks about Ruby's breeder (and we get asked all the time!).
Here are some recent pics of Ruby.
The people at Smeraglia's were a pleasure to work with. I was very specific with them about what type of dog I was looking for, both in appearance as well as personality. I wanted a certain color range with a loose-wavy coat, in the mini size, and a happy, confident, playful, high-energy, intelligent puppy who would also be loving. My Baxter is all that and more! The most reassuring thing about buying my puppy online from Smeraglia's is that if for some reason the puppies I had a deposit on didn't meet my criteria, I was allowed to apply my deposit to another puppy that might currently be available or to a future litter. Smeraglia's wants you to be totally in love with your puppy and for their pups to go to a "forever home."
Baxter is the perfect match for our family! We have an older English Labrador Retriever who needed a playmate, and we also get together almost every day with a bunch of Standard Poodles. We hike the dogs on the hills in our area and have frequent play dates, so high energy was a must! My lab is gentle (but huge!) and the poodles can be a bit feisty, so I needed a puppy who would not be easily overwhelmed by them. Baxter has been able to hold his own, not be intimidated by them and loves our walks and play dates!
I can't get over how intelligent and how easily trainable Baxter is! He is by far the easiest puppy I've ever had or ever met! He also came to us fully familiar with human touch, and right from the very beginning was as comfortable as can be with anyone touching him anywhere. At Smeraglia's, they do Early Neurological Stimulation from the time the pups are a day old, which not only acclimates the pups to touch but is scientifically proven to increase intelligence. Our vet and the trainer I work with are amazed by how great Baxter is, and our groomer was equally impressed with his behavior and how easy Baxter has been to work with from the time he was a tiny baby!
I thoroughly researched breeders of goldendoodles before deciding on Smeraglia. I kept coming back to them because they comparatively offered great variety in color, coat type and in size, while the looks and quality of the pups seemed to be more consistent and reliable.
Also, Smeraglia offers other services to a potential buyer that are very appealing. You can have your puppy come straight home to you once they are able to leave their mothers, as I did, or you can allow your puppy to stay on with Smeraglia's trainers and either get a jump on their training before they come home or have a fully trained doodle come home to you. Smeraglia trainers also do a temperament test of each puppy to help you decide which puppy best suits your needs.
They also offer "Pawtography," which I did take advantage of. If you so wish, you can have a professional photo session with your puppy right before they come home. They take the most adorable photographs of your pup, with and/or without props. My favorites are the puppies with stuffed teddy bears and old-fashioned trunks. Smeraglia's was able to supply me with two large custom portraits of my puppy on canvas, which I will always treasure.
In addition, I love how they post photos of the puppies at two, four and six weeks, and a video of the litters at six weeks so that you can see them grow and make a decision about which puppy is for you. Smeraglia's takes so many photos and videos of the puppies and their facilities, as well as videos highlighting their services and staff, that you have ample opportunity to see the type of care that goes into each puppy, how clean the puppies and their environment are, and how caring the staff is.
Smeraglia also offers a forum on their website, as well as a facebook page for Smeraglia puppy owners. One of the puppy owners called these services our "free gift with purchase." It's a great place to get information about all types of things related to our dogs, and to share photos and our experiences. While researching Smeraglia, I saw on the forum that so many owners had two, and sometimes even three, Smeraglia doodles! And everyone seemed SO in love with their pets. When that happens, you know you have a quality breeder. You don't get repeat business like that unless you have a quality product.
I am so in love with my Baxter! And everyone else seems equally in love with their Smeraglia doodles! Smeraglia is very good at listening to what you are looking for, and being able to match you with just the right puppy. I can't wait until I am in a position to get another goldendoodle from Smeraglia!
On October 19th, 2006, a goldendoodle was born at Smeraglia's Teddy bear goldendoodles. Her parents were Trinity a golden retriever and Wally a Standard poodle.
She was born in a litter of 4 – 2 girls and 2 boys.
We called about the girls and Sherri told us about the breed and how there temperament was. I had asked about having another Therapy dog and to retire my golden Cherese who was 11 years old at the time. I had been volunteering for Happy Tails Pet Therapy in the Atlanta area. Sherri assured me the temperament of the goldendoodles would be great for the task. Sherri also would pick which one would be perfect for the therapy work for the future based upon her testing the temperament of the litter of puppies. So that was it we were hooked we must get a goldendoodle from Sherri.
At the end of December 2006, my husband Steve and I flew down to pick up our new addition to our family. That is when we met Sherri in person and she handed us Cassie bear. We were shocked of how calm this puppy was and so loving and beautiful. We took her home to Georgia and began to fall in love with our new goldendoodle Cassie bear.
At 12 weeks old ,we started training in group and in private lessons. She was amazing to train and gentle with everyone. She never would jump on a stranger and was just exactly what Sherri had told us she would be like in the future amazing, she was just a puppy with task that would be fulfilled to help others.
At 9 months old, she was tested for Happy Tails pet therapy organization that I had been with since 2000 with my golden Cherese. I believe everyone was amazed about her on the day of her test that she became a part of Happy Tails Pet Therapy on July 21, 2007 at only 9 months of age. What amazing accomplishment for such a young dog to be certified and ready to work. If my memory is correct that very day I took her into the Hospital at Kennestone Wellstar in Marietta to work in the inpatient rehab. This was a sad but amazing day. That was the day I retired Cherese my golden and Cassie bear took her place. Cherese’s legs were old and failing her and we were sad for this transition but thankful for her help in making Cassie bear into the amazing therapy dog that she was going to become. The very next month August 14t, 2007 Cherese passed away and it is Cherese’s memory and her love has been carried on through Cassie bear and still does to this very day.
Cassie bear is 5 years old now and will be 6 years old on October 19, 2012.
I am amazed all the things Cassie bear has done in her life like training for 2 ½ years with Novice, Rally and private lessons. She starred in a Middle School Annie Jr. play as Sandy the dog. She has done so many special events to share her life. She loves helping others just like I do in my life. She helps me with hearing and knows when I limitations with sounds. So she helps me as well in life.
Cassie bear is still a member and volunteer of Happy Tails Pet Therapy in the Atlanta Area and currently works her therapy magic at Kennestone Wellstar Hospital in the inpatient rehab. This is where she works with therapist working on balance, standing, walking, memory and fine motor skills putting on bows on Cassie bear with the patients who have brain injury, stroke patients or other illnesses to be rehabilitated. Also, She volunteers at 2 Elementary schools one in Marietta and one school in Cobb county for special needs a total of 5 classes from profound children, autism and kids with learning disabilities. We work with speech, reading; fine motor skills and much more with the children depending on the classroom that we are helping with. Cassie bear also has love for the elderly at the assisted living in Kennesaw, Ga. Cassie bear does many special events and charms her way into so many lives. She is gentle giant at 72 pounds who believes she is a small dog at heart.
Now due to traveling back and forth from Florida she is a new certified member of a National Therapy Group with Therapy Dogs, Inc. so she can really spread her love through her travels. Cassie bear has amazing life and will continue her journey as a Therapy dog as long it is God’s purpose in her life.
Now to our next adventure with Cassie bear is she is getting another sister goldendoodle from Sherri Smeraglia that she will test and pick the perfect new addition to our family. Our new goldendoodle puppy will help in the journey for another therapy dog to help in the quest of helping others for the future.
Sending bear hugs to you all from Cassie bear
Tiffaney and Steve B.
