About Me:
I am a at home mom. I have two boys, Luke who is three, and Anthony is ten. Anthony was diagnosed at four with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. We got Abby a couple months after hearing the devastating news and she has been a wonderful addition to our family and has brought us so much joy.We are in the process of getting another Doodle. We would like to train her to be a therapy pup, as well Abby’s little sister:)
What Type of Doodle(s) do you have? What are their names? Tell us about your doodle(s) or any other pets you have!
6 yr old F1B Goldendoodle Abby. She is an amazing and loving dog. We can not imagine life without her.
Where did you get your doodle(s)?
Pet store
Why did you choose a doodle rather than another breed or mix?
We originally had a lab and a golden retriever. We loved them and their personalities, but did not like the hair all over. The description on doodles was exactly what I wanted, on top of them being so darn cute!
