Hi, My name is Gina. I am a nurse and dog lover. Many years ago, I saw a labradoodle on the Today Show. At that time, I had 2 dogs, a Shih Tzu and a Yellow Lab. I knew that one day I would own one. My Shih Tzu died in 2005. My search led me to a wonderful labradoodle puppy that I bought and named Gracie. She is now almost 6 years old. Thus, my commitment to doodles began.
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
I have an F1b cafe au lait colored labradoodle named Gracie. I also have a 12 year old yellow lab named Shelby. They are best friends and wonderful companions to me and my husband. Shelby has arthritis and has had cruciate ligament and knee surgery. She gets around fairly well, but no longer able to run and play. We are "expecting" a goldendoodle from a litter due in about 10 days. We are ready to expand our doodle family and give Gracie a little "sister."
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Doodles are the BEST of the BEST!! Smart, sweet, lovable, hypoallergenic, and non-shed. They are loyal and my perfect companion. I have 2 grandchildren and I knew how gentle this breed was. My grandchildren live out of town. They are now 12 and 5 and when they come to visit, the dogs are so excited to see them and welcome them without jealously.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
We love to go for walks, run at the park, and of course play catch. Gracie likes to snuggle up next to me when I settle in to read or watch TV.
