Well the DNA results are in and Quinn is a Doodle!! He is first generation Irish Wolfhound/Standard Poodle. I had thought poodle from the beginning, but wasn't really expecting it to be pure on both sides. We're not sure how Gracie feels about there officially being another doodle in the house.

Had our ophthalmologist appointment just this past Monday and yes, Quinn has entropion of both lower lids. We got an estimate of $3,300. which I definitely was not expecting. Made some phone calls and we are now looking at $900 - $1,200 which is much closer to what I was expecting. The first facility/surgeon was fantastic, but they are very close to NYC, which probably…Continue
