What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
Maggie is our 3 year old black goldendoodle. We also have a Bichon that is 11.

Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We chose Maggie because the goldendoodles are known to be "hypoallergenic" as well as their personalites, trainability and playfulness.
What are Your Favorite Things to Do With Your Doodles?
She LOVES to play "tennis ball" (even with lacrosse balls, baseballs, she doesn't care.. just please throw it so she can catch it!). Our princess also loves to swim in the lake or in the pool. And of course she is always game for a car ride.
