And the 2016 MyOodle Dog Calendar model winners are!

What a job! Jane and I have spent the past week selecting from over 40 entries for the 2016 MyOodle Dog Calendar.  It was tough but we've narrowed the list down and can now announce the winners.

By adding two group shots - one in Sydney and one in Brisbane 22 dogs included from the entries sent in for this year's calendar.

The thing that stood out the most to me reading all the entries, is the joy and happiness these dogs bring to our life.

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness....I've been following 'abeachcottage' for years now, my addiction to Sarah's cottage, photography and beach shots was only heightened when I saw my first photo of Barley. Holy dooley, she has a cavoodle and he looks a lot like Jet!

You might remember Barley because I've shared him a number of times on my Facebook page.

It's finally time to select our models for the 2016 MyOodle Charity Calendar - let's make the best ever 2016 dog calendar, I can't wait. Last year we had such an overwhelming response to dog owners wanting their fur babies to be included in the MyOodle Annual Charity Calendar. this year we decided to level the playing field.  It won't be a first in best dressed system, you will have time (but not a lot of it) to enter to your dog to be considered for the 2016 calendar.

My First Boat Trip in Fiji - Our Top 8 Tips for Boating Trips with Your Dog!

Jet Cavoodle has been taken in our boat ever since he was little, not very often but enough to be ok with the idea.  We've had a number of different boats over the years, the latest is perfect for life in Fiji.  I always wanted to take him in the boat so we could find a secluded location for a swim in the beautiful aqua water without the concern of local dogs spoiling the fun.

Living with older dogs

Living with older dogs
Jet Cavoodle is turning 8 years old in a couple of weeks.  While he was growing up I never thought about him becoming an older dog, in my mind he's still a puppy. People are often surprised how old he is when I tell them. He still a crazy puppy at times.

How to stop a dog digging holes in the backyard?

How to stop a dog digging holes in the backyard?

Does your dog dig holes?

When Jet Cavoodle was very little he decided it was a good idea to dig up the yard at our rental property we lived in at the time. Knowing I was responsible for fixing an damage, wanting a well behaved dog and not wanting to behaviour to continue, I quickly did some research to solve the problem.

My good friend and dog trainer Jacinta told me about an essential oil combo that dogs hate but humans will enjoy that will stop him digging. I made up some of the mixture and began spraying it on the dirt each time Jet dug another hole.

Fiji has a new resident

Fiji has a new resident

Jet Cavoodle flew from Brisbane to Nadi, Fiji today, but not before we nearly didn't think he'd make it. What a two days it's been. Let me back up to yesterday when I got a phone call asking where Jet's original immunisation record was, because it was in the folder where it should have been. After a series of calls between Australia and Fiji, I thought I had everything sorted.  Then another email with another question - a few more minutes of breath holding and we were ready for the big day.

Top 10 things that are different living without a dog

Top 10 things that are different living without a dog
During the past seven years we've had two occasions when our moving schedule has meant Jet is lived with my parents for a bit while we got sorted in a our new location.  In Fiji, we've been waiting to move into our house which has been delayed.  Where we are currently living doesn't allow dogs.  We've always tried to minimise his time away so he could be with us as quickly as possible.  During each separation I reminded myself, the alternative was to re-home him and in my mind living without a dog - specifically Jet, wasn't an option.  I've always said that I'm happy to move around, but that Jet is not negotiable - Mr MyOodle agrees.  We work it out so that he comes with us everywhere we go. For those of you wondering, yes, it is expensive.  I've stopped counting.  Fiji isn't ideal for a dog like Jet, but we'll manage him and put in the necessary effort to ensure he's taken care of and has a great life.
