What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
We have a 1st generation black labradoodle, TJ, who is 4years old. We also have Copper a red labradoodle who is 1 1/2. Copper is being trained as a service dog for our son, Jeff, who has cerebral palsy. TJ is not "officially" trained to service but he is able to do everything Copper does. We love our doodles and probably won't ever have another kind of dog. Also, I highly recommend having 2.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
Already had had labs and really like their personalities and loving disposition. Also, I was tired of the shedding. TJ sheds a little being a 1st generation but not near as much as any other dog we've had.

We go to area hospitals, nursing homes, and schools. I have a friend with doodles and we talk about trying to have a doodle romp sometime. Would you be interested?
By the way, the Dr. that delivered my children 28 and 24 years ago was a Dr. Hopkins in Greenville. You wouldn't happen to know him would you?
