My doodles' name is Ty and he is a 1 year old male F1B and yesterday was his birthday! He is English cream retriever and white poodle which we received from Smeraglia's Teddy Bear Goldendoodles & Schnoodles (you can see them on Facebook). He has quite a personality and he was just chosen for the Fido Magazine calendar for the month of May.
Tessa flushed birds for us! She is not the best retriever, but she goes to the bird and sits down and waits for us to come get it. She doesn't like to put them her mouth! But if they are in a thicket she will carefully drag it out and drop it as soon as possible. She loves guns more than anything else in the world and she come running to nuzzles it as soon as it comes out of the case in the room where Jeff (shown here) and I keep our hunting guns (we don't own handguns). Tessa took to hunting like she was born to it. We hunt upland grouse a few times a year in the fall. Tessa is 11 now and is slowing down some, the only way we can tell is that she doesn't cover as much ground any more. No birds in the rotisserrie this fall but we had a fun hikes in the mountains looking for them. Best of luck with you pup, she is lovely! Valerie here is with her "dad"
Thanks for posting back Grace! Finding a breeder of dark colored minis is tougher than I thought! We are keen on black, silver and phantom colors. We are not in a hurry so time will be on our side. If you hear of someone let me know! Blue Sterling from the Goldendoodles site help us zero in a breeder when we got Tessa. In fact Tessa is her dogs 1/2 sister. I reached out to her and she gave me links to two breeders in Cananda of minis but from what I can tell they don't breed for dark colors :(
