Please don’t tell my dogs, but I’m obsessed with Golden Doodles. I thought Chocolate Labs would always be “our dogs”, then we adopted Boss (who I’m not entirely sure is a dog at all) and I swore all our dogs would be rescue animals. Then I met Barkley. And Sadie and Maisey. And saw pictures of Penny. Instagram will be my downfall. Seven reasons I’m attracted to this breed? Easy!
Word has it second-generation Doodles don’t shed. A lack of fur tumbleweeds around here would be lovely.
They look like talking teddy bears – and feel like them, too!
Every Doodle I’ve ever met is remarkably sweet-natured, gentle, and loving. I mean my chocolate labs have always been awesome, but Doodles may be the perfect family dog!
Lots of gorgeous curls, but they tolerate being trimmed short for the summer if you prefer. Gotta love a dog with options.
The cuddliness factor cannot be emphasized enough. These dogs were made to snuggle, and I’m all about the doggie snuggles.
I love Newfies and St. Bernards, but the drool is a bit off-putting. No excessive drooling with a Doodle.
Now I realize I could split the difference and get a LabraDoodle, and that may be what we end up doing when the time comes. But for now we are at our two-dog max, and I’m fine with getting my Doodle cuddles wherever I can. But be warning: If you post pics of your Doodle on Instagram and wonder why this woman you don’t know is following you. . . it’s just me, getting my Doodle fix!
