A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers
Hi, I'm so glad to find this group. We have 2 nine year old golden doodles that we absolutely ADORE! I have added pictures from young to 9. One from a breeder and one is a rescue from someone who gave him up because she didn't like his looks. Not doodle enough for her. Today he is PRECIOUS and has a beard, even though it is different that the typical.
It was my idea to get a puppy now because they are such a delight in our lives and have the energy to help train a new puppy.
When they were 4 days old I went to see a new litter out of a private home breeding of a 3yr old female Black poodle and a beautiful golden retriever male. I went again at 5 weeks. All of the puppies looked relatively the same, some with a bit wavier coats. She said I had to choose since I had 2nd pick.
Little Lucy was so pretty and seemed to have some longer hairs on her face just like the others at 2 weeks. They all were precious.
Between the 5th and 7th week everything changed in their coats. Lucy's coat now seems really short while the others are very long and wavy. This is Lucy at 6 weeks:
I have read about the upside down V but don't understand exactly how to find it. I don't have her home yet but I am shocked and need advice. I have seen some of the videos of smooth haired golden doodles with no beard, they don't even resemble golden doodles to me.
Today she is 7 weeks.
She has our hearts in full but I wanted to see if anyone could help me understand what to expect. Is she going to have that golden doodle beard? She has the sweetest eyes...
