A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

So, this is funny. I brought Lilly to her favorite Home Depot today. A patron stops me and says "Finally a real Poodle not one of those Labordoodles or something." I said, " I hate to tell you she is a Goldendoodle and the best dog you will ever find." She said " I am so sorry to insult you." me not insulted.

I read an article a couple of weeks ago and Doodles are the #1 dog for popularity!

Our Doodles don't care about the AKC or about the people that judge or criticize them. They care about US, they love US and I love what you said Kathy, they RESCUE US from our sad moments and I also agree, DonMarie, AKC bring racism into the canine world... Leave it to humans, the "superior" species to do that. As if there weren't enough race-motivated conflicts in the human world...DOODLES ROCK!!! :)

When I was a teenager I rescued a shepard (black and brown long hair). My sister had a black standard poodle, well guys I think you know the rest of the story. We had 10 black and brown doodles and didn't even know it!!!. Back then "oh" about 30 years ago we sold them to a pet shop for $100.00 each. We started somewhat of the doodle breed 30 years ago. My sister is a professional breeder we still laugh over it!!! She owns a kennel even though she breeds pure breds she still loves doodles!!

They have been trying for a long time to make the Cockapoo a registered breed so I can't believe other Doodles will ever have a chance. I wouldn't really mind if the AKC and all the others just went away.....they just perpetuate DOGGIE RACISM!

IMO the reason we are overpaying the doodle are cause the breeder needs to keep two different breed , sometime 3 and 4 different breed for F1 F1b etc , also for the  high demand , they are very popular . 

Most people are just jealous to see our "mutts" costing thousands over their "purebred" .. Of course there most be some reasons  ( healthy,lovely,smart,cute,no shedding,etc ) 

When someone ask me why I overpaid for my doodle I just said , cause I wants a doodle not a purebred , end

I agree doodles rock!
Janet, the specifications also developed with the breeds. For example they are only now realizing that the show ring standards for German Shepherds required a slope down their spine to their tail that is actually not healthy for the dog as it contributes to development of back and hip problems. It is under revision so that shepherds in the show ring will be healthier.
Personally, I hope doodles stay the way they are. All sort of healthy sizes and colours, and all loveable!

I think Goldendoodles/labradoodles will become a pure bred because they are so popular.  According to my sister the breeder  of pointers and pugs they never will be a pure bred dog because there are no specifications. I agree kindof but not sure. I really don't care, but here is the one thing I can't figure out,we are paying more for a mix breed??? WHAT??? I love Lilly and wouldnt give her up for anything so go figure.

Too bad mamy people would never understand all that .

I can only smile at those who scorn mixed breed dogs by whatever name they choose, in favour of purebreds. If only they would take the time to educate themselves, they would realize that those highly touted purebreds all started as mixed breeds. Bit by bit, breeders selectively chose matings that selected for the most desired traits while suppressing less desirable ones. Check out German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, any basic breed you choose, every one was a genetic "mix" at some time.
This means that our doodles (who we all know are the best ever) could someday be recognized as purebreds. And so what? They couldn't be any better than they already are.
As for the "rescue" dogs, my boys are my rescue dogs. On days when the whole world seems wrong, they make it better. When I'm sad, they stay close until I feel better. When I think nobody understands me, they put their heads in my lap,and look at more with those warm beautiful eyes that say "Ya you're right. We don't understand you either, but we love you anyway!"
