I just thought I'd introduce myself and say hello. As of yet I don't have a Golden Doodle, although I do have a schnoodle. My Dood is quietly cooking and the oven timer should go off in about 2 or three weeks.
I have been on the Golden Retriever forum for about a month as I was "in the market" for a pure bred. But I kept hearing the term Goldendoodle, and looked them up, laughed, did some research, talked to a breeder and now I'm in "mommy waitng" mode and waiting for my surrogate to give birth.
I left the GR forum after googling the term "GoldenDoodle" and saw the comments left by the GR owners. Most, not all, but most were scathing and unkind to say the least. I'd be afraid to say ANYTHING about getting a Goldendoodle there. Did some more research and found myself here.
So, hello all. Will spend a lot of time looking around the site just to see what I can see.
