Retired Dogs

When our dogs finish their breeding careers they live with us or stay in their guardian homes as pets. All of our retired dogs have full health clearances which were kept current during the time they were parents for us.

None of these dogs are looking for homes.

Retired Girls

Penny is mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great, great grandmother and great, great, great (!) grandmother to many of the pups here at Aspen Hill Doodles. She's a Golden Retriever. She has retired from having puppies, but at 13, she still actively participates in raising our pups. She is Luna and Gucci's mom (see below on this page). Penny is one of those dogs that never needed to be formally trained, she seemed to have been born with good manners. We just show her what we'd like her to do, and she does it. She also acts as interpreter for some of the other animals in the house, if  someone needs something (like to go out), and they don't know how to communicate that to us, Penny tells us. She's incredible! Some of her siblings are the same way. She has been a super mom, and grandma and has produced some wonderful puppies! She is Bindi and Maggie's and Botza's grandma, Naiya's great grandma, and Casey Bear's and Rusty's great, great grandma. You'll find these dogs below and on our PARENT DOGS page.

Luna is one of Penny's (see above) puppies. She's a Golden Retriever. She loves everybody and if you're not careful, she'll try to creep up into your lap. She is happy and likes to be silly, and she's always ready to play. She really enjoys carrying things and she teaches us to pick up our socks because if we don't, she will! One time her mouth was extra full and we counted 10 socks! When she finds things around the house she carefully brings them to drop into the puppy box for the pups to explore. She is Lulu and Bindi's mom (see below), and also Maggie's mom and Naiya's grandma and Casey Bear and Rusty's great grandma (on our PARENT DOGS page). Her coat is a lustrous red that shimmers in the sunlight. She has retired to her family and is using her puppy raising skills to help raise her new human baby!

Maggie is one of Luna's puppies (see above). She's a Golden Retriever. Her father is an English Golden Retriever, born in Europe who comes from completely different bloodlines than Luna. Maggie is very healthy and has the sweet, obedient temperament that is characteristic of our golden retrievers. Like Luna she loves her toys and she is gentle with them, carrying them everywhere. She lives in a loving guardian home and her favorite place to be is in the middle of the family activity, especially with her human mom. She's a beautiful girl, with a strong, blocky structure. She's happily retired with her human family.

Hallie is a beautiful, sweet girl. Sunshine is her daughter (see below). Kaya, Kyle and Buckster are her grandpuppies (see our PARENT DOGS page). She loves to play and carry her leash as a reminder that she's available for walks! She's smart! When she picks up her leash she "stacks" it together so that there are no long dangling pieces! She's not allowed on the furniture, but early in the morning she makes her best effort to slip undetected up under the bed covers with her guardian! Her mother's bloodlines are purely American, her dad's purely European so that her lines are diverse, contributing to her robust good health. She is living out a happy retirement here in Lakewood, Colorado.

Deja is our beautiful honey gold colored Golden Retriever. She is as sweet as she looks. As far as she's concerned everyone is her friend. She loves to go camping and sleep in the tent on her own sleeping bag. She adores her squeaky toys. When she plays in the snow she rolls in it, and buries her face, and eats it! She's very curious and always keeps an eye on everyone in her guardian family. She produced some beautiful puppies with her happy spirit! Gracie (on our PARENT DOGS page) is one of her pups. She has retired in comfort to her guardian home.

She loves to roll in the snow, and play fetch. She walks beautifully on her leash, you almost can't feel that she's on the other end! She comes from diverse American bloodlines with a long history of good health and temperament. She's had some beautiful, smart pups! Phoebe (see below) and Allie (see below) are both her pups. She is happily retired with her family and enjoying swims in the river near her home.

Allie is April's daughter (see above). Her father is a handsome, gentle English Golden Retriever, born in Europe lending to the diversity in her bloodlines. She knows how to get the most petting by rolling on her back and giving a silly, toothy smile. She has her mom's beautiful looks and calm demeanor. When her family is out, she patiently waits by the front window, resting her head on the windowsill as she watches them coming home. She chases the rabbits and squirrels in her garden as if playing tag, never really trying to catch them. When her favorite people come to visit, she'll wag and quietly sing a low, doggy welcome. Her guardians say she is the sweetest dog they have ever known, and just wonderful with their young daughter. She loves to play with other dogs. Her son Frankie has joined her in a happy retirement.

Gucci is our Medium F1 Goldendoodle. She is the daughter of Penny (see above) and Tino (see below). You can see a photo of her when she was a pup with the rest of her litter, on our PUPPIES page. She has retired to her guardian home. She's still an energetic bundle of happiness, and a popular visitor to the dog park. She could be trusted alone in the house well before she turned a year. She loves to take long hikes with her family and cool herself in the creek on hot summer days. She's great at playing fetch and can outrun much bigger dogs! She has a soft fleece coat which is completely non-shedding. She produced some amazing puppies! She is Botza's mom Bot. She is Rio and Granby's grandma.

Lulu is Luna (see above) and Tino's daughter (Tino is below). She is a Medium F1 Goldendoodle. You can see her as a pup with the other pups from her litter on our PUPPIES page. She can be playful like Luna and comical like Tino but she's mostly like her grandma Penny with an incredibly sweet, intuitive personality. She has a soft non-shedding fleece coat. She's the perfect size to snuggle on the couch or go for a walk. When she's out people stop to admire her. She loves people and her big "sister" who is a Golden Retriever. Her guardian mom retired at the same time she did and they've moved to Florida where they're enjoying the warm weather!

She knows the rhythms of the family and goes to the front door when it's time for the kids to come home from school, and to her bed almost before her guardians realize that they're headed in that direction themselves! She is playful and happy but she knows her obedience and is very well behaved. She is Naiya's mom, and Casey Bear and Rusty's grandma (on our PARENT DOGS page).

Semi-Retired Boys

Some of our older boys are enjoying semi-retirement in their guardian homes. They will occasionally come out of semi-retirement to sire a litter for us.

Tino

Tino is our first poodle. When he joined our family he was 8 weeks old and only weighed 3 pounds! We can't believe how much dog we've gotten in such a small package! He's acrobatic and loves to be up on the back of the couch with the cat. Nobody told him that he's little, so he plays with the big dogs and keeps them on their toes. We had heard that many red poodles have health problems due to inbreeding (red is a tricky color to breed). Tino isn't inbred, you have to go back 4 generations to find another red dog in his pedigree, his genes were carried along by silver and black dogs. As a pup he was a lovely deep red color, he has matured to a beautiful dark apricot. His pups are light apricot/gold to a deep red and often have a white spot on their chest. He is the father of Gucci and Lulu (see above) and Naiya (see our PARENT DOGS page). He's Botza's and Casey Bear's grandpa (see our PARENT DOGS page). Our dogs from his line have his loyal, cheerful disposition.

Milo is a star in his world. Technically he’s a Standard Poodle but he comes from Miniature Poodle bloodlines. He earned his AKC Canine Good Citizen Award and does well in Agility. He loves to fetch. Trying to retrieve snowballs is one of his favorite games. He’s very sweet and adores being held, then he lies his head down on his human mom’s chest like a sleepy baby.

Cloudy

 

Cloudy is a comedian and a love. He is Gracie's dad. He likes to sleep with his head on his guardian's pillow. He watches TV, and when there are dogs on the screen, he'll stand up on his hind legs and "talk" to the dogs, as if he's trying to say words. When it snows he tries to catch the flakes in his front paws, like a kitten! He loves to play with empty water bottles, and can catch them as if they were balls, then he tosses them and crackles them until the crackle wears out! His playfulness is infectious. He's attentive and never misses anything. His coat is silky with soft wool curls.

Retired Boy

Strawberry is our beautiful apricot Standard Poodle. He has retired to his guardian home. He is Bindi's dad (see above), Naiya's grandpa, and Casey Bear and Rusty's great grandpa (see our PARENT DOGS page). He still loves to be silly and playful but even when he was a rambunctious puppy he knew enough to be gentle with the tiny kittens who share his guardian home. He carries the best characteristics of the standard poodle with his elegant stride, his loyal intelligence, and his affectionate personality. He has a soft wool coat which falls in loose curls when it's long. He has produced some beautiful litters at Aspen Hill!
