We are the Lively's! We live on a little farm nestled in the country in the Northeastern corner of Oklahoma. We own City Drug Pharmacy here in Nowata and my husband, Wyatt, is the pharmacist there! I teach high school english at Oklahoma Union Public Schools! I have the best job ever!
We both got our Associate's degrees from NEO A&M in Miami, OK. Then, we made the 3.5 hour move to Weatherford, OK where Wyatt got his pharmacy degree and I got my Master's degree in Business Administration.
We were blessed enough to find our "little slice of heaven" back in our hometown of Nowata and we couldn't think of a better place to settle down! We are very invested in our small town and love giving back to the community!
Dogs have always been my passion and I knew I wanted them to be a part of our lives. Throughout school, I helped my mom with her Goldendoodle business and I couldn't wait until I graduated and was able to have my own doodle business! They say if you find a job you love, you'll never work a day in your life.... I can attest to that!
As I mentioned, we work closely with my mother, Krista Thornbrugh, who raises Mini and Standard Goldendoodles on her farm. My family has been involved in breeding dogs for over 30 years. My mother and grandmother both raised German Shepherds for many years and I grew up helping them. This instilled a love for dogs that runs deep in my veins and fuels my passion to bring the happiness that a dog provides to as many families as possible. I was about 14 when we were asked to help a family member who was battling cancer care for his breeding dogs. He raised Goldendoodles and Labradoodles. I was INSTANTLY drawn to these AMAZING dogs!! I had never met such happy go lucky dogs. After our relatives' passing, we continued to raise Goldendoodles and here we are!
I decided to branch out to Aussiedoodles because of my love for the breed. Both my husband's family and mine have Australian Shepherds and they are some of the best dogs we have ever owned. Loyal, intelligent, and so willing to please. I couldn't imagine not having Aussies in my life, so it just made sense for me to add the Aussiedoodle to our lineup.
