When the stranger on the street asked me why didn’t I just get a Golden Retriever or a Standard Poodle, I quickly blurted out “because I love Goldendoodles ❤️”…
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been asked questions like that.
Pawhaps because I chose a hybrid – people assume I had difficulty making up my mind.
Not true. I simply love these dogs!
Once the popularity of the Goldendoodle skyrocketed (after its cousin the Labradoodle), the internet has become inundated with controversial conversation.
Dreadful stories and derogatory comments about them plague the wide world web.
People are quick to use unflattering descriptive words like –
- hard to control
To be honest, I’ve met plenty of humans that fit those adjectives. #dontlaugh
Imagine my facial expression when someone once asked me if they were “a little slow” #Igotyourslow
Someone even wrote that they were an abomination. #stopthemadness
Please tell me why would someone want to insult another persons pet like that?
Listen, there are all types of dogs. You’ve got your –
- double droolers
- big barkers
- super shedders
– just to name a few. And they too are loved. But if those attributes are NOT ones you are willing to live with – I understand. After all – it’s your call. Every dog isn’t for everybody.
But just like humans – can’t we embrace the variety?
Not growing up in a dog friendly family, I had little to no experience with dogs of any kind.
Doodle Dad had one dog as a child. “Snap” was his name and he lived his entire life in the backyard.
That meant a pet for us had to be both human and canine friendly. We were inexperienced dog people. #doodleclueless
The Goldendoodle caught my eye about 13 years ago. I saw one and almost lost my mind to all that cuteness. When I looked into temperament, personality traits, etc… it fit our lifestyle. #pawsdown
I fell deep. I’m talking doodle-deep in love with their soulful eyes and endearing facial expressions…
The hybrid cross of the two popular pure breeds intrigued me. Here’s a fluffy dog that not only loves pets and humans, he’s also –
While the whole hypo-allergenic craze is attractive to many people – it wasn’t high on my list because I’m into fluffy #loveit
Besides, everything that lives – sheds #evenalittle
Just because I have Goldendoodles – I assure you – I harbor no ill will towards the Golden Retriever or the Standard Poodle. #notatall
I just happen to love the incredibly cheerful, whimsical and loving Goldendoodle…
They’re super social dogs that thrive around people. And here’s the most important part –
THEY’RE PAWFECT FOR ME –
But please don’t get it twisted – they’re no saints #meetJaxson They can get into just as much mischief as any other dog.
I will never understand how such a superior species as the two legged human can share such contempt about a dog who bring oodles of doodle happiness to so many. #mindblowing
As I continue to talk about my Boys with people I meet, I will try hard to dispel the myths. I doubt I will ever tire repeating myself nor will I become restless or impatient with the discriminating statements. #whoosaa
Because I’m too busy and too happy – having too much Doodle fun!
