I'm a Golden Girl...I love Golden Retrievers! I've had them since I can remember, as a child starting with Lady Daffodil (Daffy), then Daisy, then Lilly, and then when I got married I got Duke (aka co-chairman of smelliness). Since losing Duke and Sammy (Pekingese), it's just been too quiet around here. At first I was excited that I didn't have hairballs around every corner. But a clean house is a boring house, right?!?! And that longing for a furry friend started tugging at my heart strings...
I did a little research and discovered a "breed" of dog called a Goldendoodle...part Golden Retriever and part Poodle. Honestly, I've never been a huge fan of poodles. But then again, I've never really known one either. :) We found a wonderful breeder and picked her brain about them. After speaking with her and seeing the adorable images around the web, I was hooked!
Goldendoodles are basically wavy Golden Retrievers that don't shed. YIPPEEEEEE! The coat depends a lot on the breed of the mother. I learned that breeding female Golden Retrievers to male Poodles will give the soft, wavy coat as opposed to a kinky curly coat. And the size depends on the size of the parents, namely the Poodle.
We couldn't be more excited to be adding a new member to our family...of the furry type that is! Lucy Rose is about 5 weeks old and will be ready to come home in a few short weeks. Since birth, we have received weekly updates and photos of our little cutie...can't wait to actually meet her n person!

Cute, right?! :)
