A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers
I lost the love of my life, my 14 year old goldendoodle Easton.
Best dog I have ever owned. Would only have goldendoodles from this point on.
When the grief subsides, I will find myself in the market for another one.
Female, first generation but not white as I could not bear to have the same color again.
Out of respect and guilt I suppose, I thought a different color would be a good way to differentiate as I am not replacing, I am moving forward.
The breeder I got Easton from has retired.
I need guidance. I live in Southeast Michigan.
I need recommendations for a breeder that is legit, that breeds for temperament and health of the dog.
I am also open to rescuing a goldendoodle.
Please throw info my way.
Lastly, I would like to share some thought provoking advice I was given after suffering the loss of my dog.
I initially felt that I never want to get another dog because I don’t want to feel this torn up and devastated again.
Such profound sadness ....it was like wearing a too heavy coat that I could not remove.
But then my brother snapped me out of it with these words...”Being a dog lover means your heart is full of dog love ....you must not withhold that kind of love when there is another dog just waiting and deserving of that kind of love.”
Ironically, my brother passed away this week.
I will get another dog.
Would appreciate any and all advice. Thank you.
