Christmas Joy: Finding Your Dream Dog

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

SofieOne of our favorite holiday things is finding our inbox stuffed with the most adorable Australian Labradoodle Christmas pics.

You can see many of those pics up on our Facebook page.

Occasionally the pictures will come with heartfelt words that reinforce the reason we’re so passionate about Australian Labradoodles. They’re an amazing breed that makes them the best companions, but don’t take our word for it.

Read what Heather had to tell us about her lovely Sofie:

“She has been such a delightful addition to our family since we brought her home in June. She’s just what I dreamed of! Sofie is intelligent, funny, and playful. She’s so great with my kids and enjoys spending time with the family.

She loves car rides and she brings tons of attention everywhere we go. The groomers have been very impressed with her personality and temperament, as well as her beautiful coat!

Sofie is my dream dog and I’m so thankful to have she as part of our family.

Thanks again for matching us with the perfect dog—we love her!”

Thanks Heather! Helping people find their dream dog is what drives us at Manor Lake Australian Labradoodles.

Happy Holidays!

Holiday Safety Tips

Holiday Safety

The holidays are coming up and it can be a dangerous time for our lovable pets. has a great article on what to be careful of when it comes to prepping for the holiday season.

Christmas Tree Tips:

1. Place your Christmas tree in a corner, blocked off from your pet’s wanting eyes. If this doesn’t keep your dog or cat from attempting to jump onto the tree, you can place aluminum foil, a plastic drink bottle filled with knick knacks, or anything else that creates noise on the tree’s bottom limbs to warn you of an impending tree disaster.

2. Tinsel can add a nice sparkling touch to the tree, but make sure you hang it up out of your pet’s reach. Ingesting the tinsel can potentially block their intestines, which is generally only remedied through surgical means.

3. Do not put lights on the tree’s lower branches. Not only can your pet get tangled up in the lights, they are a burning hazard. Additionally, your dog or cat may inadvertently get shocked by biting through the wire

4. Ornaments need to be kept out of reach, too. In addition to being a choking and intestinal blockage hazard, shards from broken ornaments may injure paws, mouths, or other parts of your pet’s body.

5. For those buying a live Christmas trees this year, keep the area free and clear of pine needles. While they may not seem dangerous, the needles can puncture your pet’s intestines if ingested.

Other Great Holiday Item Tips:

1. Did you know holly, mistletoe, and poinsettia plants are poisonous to dogs or cats? If you normally use these plants to decorate your home, they should be kept in an area your pet cannot reach.

2. Edible tree decorations — whether they be ornaments, or cranberry or popcorn strings — are like time bombs waiting to happen. These goodies are just too enticing and your pet will surely tug at them, knocking down your wonderfully decorated spruce.

3. Burning candles should be placed on high shelves or mantels, out of your pet’s way — there’s no telling where a wagging tail may end up. Homes with fireplaces should use screens to avoid accidental burns.

4. To prevent any accidental electrocutions, any exposed indoor or outdoor wires should be taped to the wall or the sides of the house.

5. When gift wrapping, be sure to keep your pet away. Wrapping paper, string, plastic, or cloth could cause intestinal blockages. Scissors are another hazard, and they should be kept off floors or low tables.

We at petMD don’t want to ruin all your holiday decorating fun. By all means, go crazy sprucing up your home and wrapping presents. But make sure you do in a way that is safe for your pet(s) this holiday season.
