Hi Debbie,It is quite obvious,based on our experience with Stormy (aka Pink), that she had been treated in an excellent fashion under your care and must have excellent lineage. Not only does she have a great pack instinct (followed entire family without a leash when we took a pit stop haft way home after aquiring her), but she is wounderful around our home,her kennel,our kitchen,family room,bathing,sleeping next to us in her kennel by our bed at night,outside,in our car (in her kennel),taking walks (little hesitant with leash but excellent with out it - we are working on the leash). everywhere!!! She sits,stays a bit,fetches and returns,stays well in her comfy kennel with the door closed when necessary, and always has been giving her paw (as you know). She barely barks. we simply love her. I'll keep in touch and send pictures soon. Take Care and thanks for bringing so much joy to our family<br />
Sincerely, Tom,Helen,Matt,Chris and Lauren

I am completely satisfied with Stormy, my female F1 Labradoodle, Stormy is a sweetheart, loves all things that move, is a complete part of our family,and is very active and healthy. Keep in mind that for any dog, a great deal of care,discipline,exercise,love and attention is needed by the owner, which my family and I consistently provide to Stormy. Stormy gets lots of exercise with me (i.e.,jogging,roller bladeing,soccer, walks,etc.) I'm sure this plays a significant role in her current disposition. The most amazing thing is that Stormy only barks once or twice when she needs something. She never yaps which is wounderful. Stormy is Tom's shadow when ever Tom is home.
My experience with Debbie has been absolutely outstanding. It is very apparent she is a dedicated professional breeder. My impression is she is very trustworthy. She recently took care of Stormy while we were on vacation. Stormy came back home as if she has her own special vacation visiting her relatives. We are hoping Debbie will be available again in Aug 2008 to take care of Stormy for about a week.
Hi Debbie, 2-17-2011
I'm very happy to report that our pup Bauer (Lucy and Peanut's litter 4/17/09) is doing great. He is the most lovable, loyal and sweet dog we could have ever hoped for. And as I'm sure you can see from the pictures, the most handsome boy around. As a matter of fact, we get compliments all the time and I happily tell those folks of Countryside.
Bauer is just about 29lbs, very long-legged, with the softest, wavy, caramel colored fur which is completely non-shedding. He is energetic, yet calm. Very social and good with commands - I can walk him off-leash in most instances, and he is the best and fastest ball retreiver in the park. Most importantly, he is incredibly gentle and patient with my two boys, ages 3 and 6 months, and is the best dog brother to our 4 year-old bichon, Easton.
We could not be more thrilled with our wonderful furry family member, Bauer, or our experience with Countryside. We wish you and your dogs all the best, and hope through our word of mouth we'll see more Countryside doodles in this area.

Hello there! I am sorry it has taken me so long to share some photos with you – our holiday was busy but WONDERFUL with our new ANGEL. The kids were STUNNED and SPEECHLESS on Christmas morning – we joke that she might forget how to walk because the kids keep carrying her and cuddling with her. She has been great – already knows how to sit, lay down, shake and fetch.
Hope you all had a great holiday! We will be sure to keep in touch with updates and refer you all whenever we can. Thanks for everything!
Gobi is the greatest puppy ever. Everywhere we go he is a crowd pleaser and the center of attention. He loves everyone and all animals (even cats, although they don't share that sentiment). He is also very intelligent and learns commands and tricks very fast. He is a great dog and we are very happy to have him.

Daisy is a lovely dog. She has been a wounderful additional to our family. She is a quiet dog who is very loving,very playful and very gentle. Our three children are totally in love with Daisy. We could not ask for a better family pet. - Thanks, Tracey
Just wanted to drop you a quick note and give you an update on Bambi. She is absolutely the joy of our lives! We are all so in love with her. She looks like a teddy bear! She's snuggly like one, too.
She is a recent graduate of Puppy School through Petsmart. We are going to continue on to Intermediate sometime in November. She did great! She is so sweet and so smart. Star Student! She loves the kids like crazy and wakes them up for school each morning with a tornado of love and kisses! It's hilarious! She sits, stays, lays down, crawls, rolls over, waits, sits "Pretty", says her prayers, chases her tail, loose leash walks, does puppy push ups, plays dead, walks on her back legs, plays fetch, tells a secret and is currently working on jumping through hoops. She learns and masters tricks so fast! She is well socialized with other people and animals. She did a lot of camping this year, went fishing on a boat and helped us catch almost 100 lbs of fish in Nebraska. It was a blast. She even made it up to the Black Hills, Fred Flintstone's Bedrock Village and Mt. Rushmore! She loves camping and races to the RV when we bring it home to load it. She knows we are off to another great adventure. LOL
I have attached her two most recent photos. These are from her graduation. I hope all is well with you. I have been asked by everyone where did I get her? I tell them but I was wondering if you wanted to send me some business cards, I can put them in my car and give them to any interested people out here. We think Bambi is one in a million and feel like the luckiest puppy parents in the world. Thank you so much for finding the perfect match for us and our children. We could not be happier!
Ladea DanteBambi is an absolute joy. We are head over heels in love with her. She is best friends with every one of us and interacts differently with us all. She is friendly and sweet. She has a gentle spirit and a kind heart. She wins everyone over. Everybody loves Bambi!
Thanks again and take care.
Luke is doing great!! He is getting big and we are enjoying having him in our family so much!! I will take a few new pictures this week and send them to you, along with everything else you need.
Our kids love playing with Luke all the time and he has two boy dogs, Rooney and Norm, that are his best friends ( a german shepard and a mix hound dog) - they live 2 houses away. He looks forward to playing with them outside everyday! He also loves to walk over to Teddy Lankford's house to play with him too. They live just a couple streets away from us. We are taking puppy classes and he is learning a lot. Our teacher uses Luke to demonstrate the new skills she is teaching to our class. He is so smart and our kids love going to the puppy classes and learn with Luke each week.
He has lots of energy, is very loving and he is a very happy puppy!! I'll send you everything soon.
- Have a great day, Cathy Judd
Luke is doing great!! He had the best time this morning playing outside with all our kids in the snow!! He loves the snow and has had a great time this snowy winter! We are getting ready for his 1st birthday next week. We are planning a little party for him and we are inviting his "cousins" from Countryside Doodles that live nearby....Teddy Lankford, Sheamus Griffin, and Angel Hendrickson along with his other friends that live on our street! I'll send you a birthday picture of Luke next week along with the survey.
Have a great day, Cathy
Penny is doing great. She’s about 15 pounds now and potty training is going great. We’ve taken her camping a few times and the kids love playing ball and Frisbee with her. I’m getting ready to take her to the groomers for a summer haircut. We have another camping trip in a few weeks and I don’t want her to be too hot. She’s tons of fun and full of energy.
So good to hear from you. I hope things are well for you and your family. Things are wonderful here including our Josie Girl. She was the best addition to our family. In February she will be with us three years, I can't believe how fast time goes. She is a great dog - very smart and very playful. EVERYONE loves Josie. Attached are pictures of Josie, as a puppy and at three years old (and one of her playing in the snow). Can't wait to see her on your website. All the best to you. Happy Holidays.

Brady is doing well, as you can see. his coat has gotten lighter since he was a pup.
He is a playful, friendly, intelligent dog. He is great with kids, calms down quickly with new people in the house. his favorite activity is fetching balls, which he would probably do for hours if he had the opportunity. he has figured out that by dropping the balls at the top of our driveway, he can watch them roll to the bottom and make us chase them, rather than the other way around. (he just dropped a rubber ball at my feet so i would toss it, as i'm typing this). He likes going on hikes, particularly if we go near the potomac river and the C&O canal, because he loves swimming. he understands basic commands - sit, go inside, go to the park, go to the car, that kind of thing. he doesn't shed, never has.
thanks - it's hard at this point to remember when he wasn't part of the family.
Attached you will find a pic of my son, Cameron and our dog - Beckett.
( named after Josh Beckett- Red Sox pitcher ,..)
Beckett is doing great- he has the best temperment- he is such an easy going dog- he loves to play, he is great with kids, and is very smart. He also is a big "runner"- I take him for 3 to 5 mile runs when the weather is good and he loves it.
We are so lucky to have Beckett as part of our family,...
Everyone who meets Fenway agrees he is one of the best dogs -- and absolutely the best Goldendoodle -- that they have ever met. Our trainer (well known in Maryland) will be specifically recommending you as a breeder to others looking for a Goldendoodle in the future.
Have a great week!
