Phoenix came to us from Canadian Doodle Puppies, also here in Ottawa. Her dam is Morning Smile Cassonade, and her sire is Halton Hills New Beginnings (Newbie).
When Phoenix was younger, her coat was a darker apricot colour. Her name is meant to reflect that colour - not quite red, like the fiery phoenix, but getting there. Of course, since her coat has lightened it’s not so descriptive any more.
Phoenix is an exuberant, bouncy girl who loves to run. We used to think her bounce was due to being a puppy, but she is well into adulthood and she still bounces when she runs! She has a real joie-de-vivre! Phoenix ives lwith us and is devoted to my son, whose dog she becme when she joined our family.

DragonRam Clover Callie

Clover, one of Phoenix's daughters. is a beautiful chocolate phantom Australian Labradoodle with some white markings on her head and neck. She also carries parti from her sire, Rogue. Clover lives with a great guardian family with two active boys. She will begin her breeding career in 2019.
DragonRam Bella Marshmallow
Born 15 December 2017
Marshmallow is a full sibling to Clover, with the same dam (Phoenix) and sire (Rogue) though from a different litter. Marshmallow is a beautiful black with a white blaze up her face and continuing down her neck and shoulders in a pattern that, when she was a puppy, was shaped kind of like a Christmas tree. Marshmallow carries both parti (from her sire) and phantom (from either dam or sire, we can't know for sure!). She lives in an active Guardian family with lots of kids! Marshmallow will begin her breeding career in late 2019.

Born 4 January 2018
Honolulu ("Lulu") is a half-sibling to Dakota, with the sama dam (Harmony) and a different sire (Black Canyon Triple Play "Jackson" from Dreamland Doodles in BC). Lulu is a beautiful chocolate parti but she is also phantom, making her our first true parti tricolour breeding dog. Lulu lives on a gorgeous country property with DragonRam Doodles new partner, where she enjoys playing with her canine uncle Brio (yes, her real uncle - Harmony's brother) and her two human brothers who love her to bits.
Amore is our foundation dam - the first to join our program, and the mother and grandmother of many of our current breeders.
Amore, or Mo, as she is affectionately called, joined us in June 2009 from Urban Doodles in Calgary, in whelp with her first litter. She has had a total of four litters, none of them very big, producing 15 puppies in all. Mo retirned after her fourth litter went home in summer 2012, leaving Galena and Topaz as her legacy to our program.
Mo is a very loving dog who knew from the getgo that her job was to look out for my daughter. She has done that faithfully, and has had the favour returned in spades as my daughter made it her job to watch over Mos puppies, play with them, and keep them healthy.
Now in her retirement, Mo is the queen of the canine household. She let’s the other, lowlier dogs handle the noisy pups, but she makes sure they know she is boss!
Garnet was from Amore’s very first litter, sired by Urban Doodles Luck of the Irish (Lucky). She was a very petite puppy and she stayed petite in adulthood. Despite her tiny size, she had good-sized litters, giving us 11 puppies in just two litters.
Garnet’s puppies were all named after heavenly or celestial bodies (interpreted very loosely as things to do with sky and air).
Garnet is a very lovely black Australian Labradoodle with a lively and active disposition - she LOVES to play frisbee and is one of the best frisbee catchers I have seen in canine form.
After just two litters, we retired Garnet from breeding as several of her pups had significant underbites, which is not something we want to produce. She is now enjoying her retirement with her forever family in Cornwall, where she shares house space with four human children and one cat.

Galena is one of our very own DragonRam puppies, from Amore’s third litter, sired by Southern Charms Brutus.
All of Amore’s puppies were given names of minerals or precious stones. Galena’s name name refers to the mineral galena, which is the main ore in lead and an important source of silver - quite fitting, as her coal has lightened and silvered as she has matured, giving her a beautiful cafe-lavender coat with silver highlights. Her second name, Magnolia, is in honour of her sire’s southern heritage.
Galena is one of the friendliest, sweetest dogs we have every had. She is loving and gentle, but spirited and lively. She loves to snuggle! Galena lives with her devoted Guardian Family and one canine half-brother, Carnelian (aka Frisou), who misses her dearly when she is with us caring for her puppies.
Galena retired from her breeding career in fall 2016, after producing four litters totalling 28 stunning Labrdoodle puppies. She is now enjoying a well-deserved retirement with her guardian family and canine brother, Frisou.

Katniss is another DragonRam puppy, from Phoenix’s first litter, sired by Canadian Doodles Brodie.
We chose to name Phoenix’s puppies with plant names. In this case, Katniss also comes from the Hunger Games books, where she is the main character. But katniss is also a kind of aquatic plant that produces tubers. Since this litter was born on St Patrick’s Day, we also gave them a second name in honour of the event - in this case, a pun on the book character’s last name, “Everdeen.” Finally, Alice is the name given to her by her Guardian Family. That’s quite a mouthful, but she’s quite a dog!
Katniss is a rare black phantom Labradoodle - black with tan points on her eyebrows, cheeks, chest, paws and butt. She is stunningly gorgous!! Katniss lives with her Guardian Family outside Ottawa, where she shares the love with two human sisters and a canine brother, Leo (one of Garnet’s puppies).
Unfortunately, Katniss's hips tested to be not very good, so we retired her in 2015 without breeding her. She is living out a happy life with her guardian family and canine brother, Leo

Another DragonRam original, Topaz is from Amore’s fourth and final litter, sired by Puppy Loves Moto Moto.
Topaz is a gem, just like all of Amore’s puppies! While pure topaz is colourless, impurities can give the gem many different colours. The orange shade of topaz is the November birthstone (but 9our Topaz was born in April!). Her second name simply goes along with Topaz, a crystal gem.
Topaz is a playful and independent dog who lives with a Guardian Family with three children. She is one of the smaller dogs we have bred. She has produced some beautiful babies! Topaz lives in a home backing a park, making it easy for her to go out for lots of playtime!

Harmony is a second-generation DragonRam Doodles dog, from Topaz’s first litter, sired by Canadian Doodles Donovan. .
Topaz’s babies have all received names with a musical theme. Harmony was born with some very pretty and symmetrical spots, hence her name!
Harmony is a gorgeous black parti Labradoodle girl (white with coloured spots - in this case black) - on her back and head. She is is a very pretty, happy and lively girl who lives with her Guardian Family just west of downtown. She has a small backyard, several nearby parks, and a loving human set of parents.
Harmony began her career in 2016 with a gorgeous litter of seven pups. She will be bred four times before retiring, likely in 2019.
