Good morning and happy new year from the Atlanta suburbs! We added a 'double doodle' to our family about 6 weeks ago - mom is a blonde F1 goldendoodle and dad is a chocolate F1 labradoodle. We've been a labrador family for 26 years now, so we are totally new to anything doodle, which is why I'm here on this forum! Our Sadie girl is a spunky, fun and very sweet girl and we're enjoying the addition of a second dog to the family (we also have a 12 year old male lab named Jax).
We are headed to her 12 week appointment today and she should weigh in around 22-23 pounds - we're hoping she'll be a big girl!
I'll post a few pictures, but I'm pretty sure she has an open face/no furnishings (which my research shows can happen with two F1 parents); I'm not too sure about her coat though...it seems to be growing a bit right now. Her ears are curlier and her coat is very wavy/bumpy down her back and tail. Honestly, we don't care if she has furnishings or sheds, we absolutely adore her already....and we are lab owners, so we've dealt with 26 years of shedding, lol!! However, I'm curious to know the thoughts on what type of coat she'll have? I'm having a hard time imagining what this pretty girl will look like as an adult! Maybe a black version of a golden retriever? What are your thoughts!?!
Thank you in advance, Amanda
