Life’s chaotic and I’m exhausted –

But the state of bliss and blessedness each day brings is unexplainable. #puppylove

    This is such a sweet photo. It’s the embodiment of “man’s best friend”

      Thanks Christina – I agree with you completely…

    Jax is just adorable. I have heard that Jax’s breed means he doesn’t shed (or at least as much). Is this true?

    • Cathy Bennett

      Tis true Barkocity! Jax doesn’t shed much (I think everything sheds), he and Harley are 50% poodle – so that is why they are classified as “hypo-allergenic. That’s a constant debate, and I plan to blog about Goldendoodle facts and/or myths. I personally do not have much to any hair/fur in the house, and practically nothing when I brush them – which I do daily.

    That is one of my absolutely FAVORITE quotes. Couldn’t have been paired with a better picture! <3

      We have such great neighbors – the entire family has gone over to the Doodle side. They are seriously considering adding one to their family.

    Changes EVERYTHING. When I moved out here to Denver, I was lonely. Loved where I was living, what I was doing, but I was soooo homesick and lonely. And then came Dash … and I don’t exaggerate when I say he saved my life. And I think you know just what I mean. And then a year later along came Lilly and well, we became a little unit and everything changed again. Yep, these are wonderful creatures and I thank God too. xoxo your Colorado friend!

      They are amazing creatures! I don’t know how I lived all of my life without them.

    Mom says each of us have turned her life completely upside down, but she has learned she likes living life upside down 🙂

      Thanks Mr. N. – seems like he grows overnight in his crate!

  • Alessandra & Pedro
    June 10, 2015

    May I share this little poem with you? I wrote it for Pedro, it’s called “My Goldendoodle Child”:

    He is
    A puppy
    My child

    He just licked this page
    And is sniffing my pen
    Wondering if or when
    I will go to bed

    He is not little
    He is big
    But he thinks
    He is little
    That he fits
    On my lap

    And when he dreams
    Of chasing bunnies
    Of getting treats
    And socks to drool
    He whimpers, he barks,
    He smiles

    And when I come home
    He jumps with joy
    Excitedly or grumpily
    He talks
    He asks
    Where have you been
    All day long
    Mommy?

    He has settled now
    Next to me
    At the top of the stairs
    While I write
    Words that I can’t let go
    Ink that is bleeding on paper
    Because he licked it
    And he starts to snore

    He is not little
    He is big
    But yesterday
    And today
    And always
    He is my little
    Fluffy
    Scruffy
    Sometimes stinky
    Often loud
    Goldendoodle
    Child.

      That is so precious, Pedro is one lucky little pup!

    So true. I love our Rita, but the dog who really ‘changed everything’ was our angel Abby. She was my heart dog and I sure miss that crazy kid.

    • Cathy Bennett

      Jackie – Harley is my heart, Leo was my shadow, Jax has become my way back. Love that puppy!

    The joy they bring is priceless, isn’t it? I had so many doubts when we decided to adopt Luke, but I have not regretted it for one minute (and the exhausted part does pass too….).

    • Cathy Bennett
      June 10, 2015

      Girl – I don’t even think about the exhaustion. He just makes me so happy. Like Luke does for you 🙂

    Jax is about the cutest lap dog I’ve seen lately! So gosh darn stinkin’ cute! 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      June 10, 2015

      Thanks Monika – He’s really coming into his own, and I love his personality. He’s very, very, special (but then “aren’t they all?”) 🙂

    It’s sooo true. Pug literally showed up on my doorstep and even though I’ve had pets my whole life we have a truly special bond.
