Why does Nando have a blog?

We were not new to dog ownership when we got Nando at the age of  9 weeks – but I had not had a young puppy since I was child, as my last dog was 6 months old when I adopted her.  My husband had only ever known my previous dog – who was old, arthritic and big sweety. We had a LOT of questions about puppies and puppy ownership, and about Groodles specifically.

I did some extensive Googling about puppies, especially in the first 2 weeks, and found some excellent resources of information – which I will share in this blog. However I also found that there were questions with no answers:

Questions to be answered in this blog:

Even though I cannot yet answer some of these questions, I can keep track of what happens with Nando, and with time perhaps provide some answers.

Nando the Groodle/Goldendoodle Puppy

I sort of must confess that I am a veterinarian – my specialty is with horses but I have worked in small animal practice fo many years as well.  And yet – I have questions about puppies!  As part of this blog, I will also write some articles about health issues that come up with Nando – and how I approach them ‘through the eyes of a vet’.

For my husband, who did not grow up with dogs, having a puppy is a fun experience and a steep learning curve.
