Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum


We recently welcomed a new addition, his name is Chewbacca (Chewy). He's a F1B medium Goldendoodle. He joins our female Mojo who is a F1 standard Goldendoodle. We also had Sebastian, who was Mojo's littermate, but he passed away on 1/26 due to osteosarcoma. His spirit still lives on. 

Chewy came on Friday 2/23. Yesterday was his first day home alone with just Mojo. It didn't go well as Mojo was in another room so Chewy felt alone and howled for most of the day, lol. 

Today, we took a different approach. We had Mojo stay in the same room as Chewy and it's made a huge difference. Chewy is so much more calm today knowing she is there with him. 

Here is Chewy resting in his crate and learning to sleep on his back just like Sebastian used to. We have put up Arlo cameras around the house, so you'll see lots of funny things they do when nobody is around (he'll get free reign once he gets potty trained).

Welcome Jon and Chewy.

It’s hard when you lose a littermate - their bond is real and amazing to see.

And there have been moments where Mojo snapped at Chewy - prolly for the same reason you stated. Chewy is so small and naive that Mojo doesn’t know what to do. But most of those moments happen inside. Outside where they have more open spaces, Mojo tolerates him very well. Regardless of how Mojo feels at times, it’s evident that Chewy looks up to her and follows her lead. 

I’ll post a video update in my next blog and give an example. It’s my hope that Mojo and Chewy can become very good friends like yours have become.

So sorry to hear about your Sebastian.  We too had liter mates and lost one to cancer at 5 y/o.  We brought a new puppy home a couple of months later and our Lucy absolutely hated her.  I don't use that word lightly ... she would not even stay in the same room with her.  I'm glad to hear that it seems to be going better for your 2.  Ours are now best of friends.  I think AnnaBelle was just so small that Lucy didn't know what to do with her.  Best of luck with your new little guy.  He is adorable.  I look forward to watching him grow.

Chewy's adorable! Love the idea of having the camera, that way you know for sure what Chewy is up to, and always making sure he is ok.
