Life with Toffeedoodle 

Toffeedoodle is our much loved Shepadoodle….3/4 Standard poodle & 1/4 white German Shepherd ….to say the least…our life in the country revolves around him as well as his social life. The pre-requisite for living on a dirt road in the middle of nowhere was to have a large dog. …and so… he entered our lives as a bouncy 4 month old pup. After the first long winter it was decided that  our first renovation project was to remove the tan shag wall to wall carpet which adorned our newly acquired home.  In order to accommodate our rural easy going lifestyle we installed wide planked Red Pine which looks distressed…..perfect for our dog friendy home. Sometimes we have several dogs visitng simultaneously as all of our friends are accompanied by their furry 4 legged friends.  We love it that way. I must say the dogs are always so  well behaved…we wouldn’t want it any aother way.

    Hi Robin! We are big pet lovers too. And yes, our lives do revolve around them somehow!
    Toffeedoodle is a cutie! It’s great that he likes to share with his fellow pet friends! I absolutely love your red pine flooring! I am so up in the air with what kind of floors I want for the kitchen and living room. It has to be durable enough for 2 dogs and 2 cats! Your pine cabinet is Beautiful! I love the rustic look of it! Is that antique? Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      Thanks Maria,
      Our furry friends are very important to us and so did not want to worry about scuffing. The wide plank flooring is new but made to look antiqued or already distressed. We had it installed two years ago and could not be happier. You either love it or hate it.

    Hi, Robin. Your surroundings are ideal–a colorful wooded shoreline and secluded paths! Beautiful! I love the wide planked red pine flooring, too, and it looks like it could have been hewn from old logs felled nearby. Well done!
