Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Forum
It's been awhile since I have been on this site. A lot has happened that kept me away. I planned on getting a Goldendoodle down the road as my American Bulldog, Buster, started to age. My plan was that this would help me transition into the idea of losing him. When I got Buster 9.5 years ago, it was strictly to help me through losing Casey, my 11 y.o. boxer, that was growing ill. When it came time to put Casey down, this puppy Buster was right there when I got home to make me smile again. So, back in June when I joined this site, I was just researching Goldendoodles. Buster was not sick. He was my best friend. He was happy and healthy. In July, everything changed. In one weekend, I learned all too much about prostate cancer in dogs. According to two vets, we had really no option and had to lay him to rest. We were devastated, heartbroken. And my big plan of having some Goldendoodle puppy at home waiting there to make me smile, failed. Then I had to have some surgery. Anyway - now we are ready. We have just put a deposit down on a Goldendoodle from Redmond, Wash!!!! (so far away, we are in Upstate, NY). We are so excited! He or maybe she is set to arrive September 8th weekend. And don't get me wrong, I don't think a new pup can ever 'replace' our beloved lost dogs, but they certainly can help the hole in your heart that's left when they they are gone.
So coming soon will be some actual puppy pics, this one on my profile is just someone else's cute puppy that looked like what I was looking for....
Very excited to become a real owner and Mom to a Goldendoodle. Anyone that has any tips for a newbie, feel free to message me...
