    Holly - My Goldendoodle

    A Goldendoodle is the result of an intentional breeding between a Golden Retriever and a Poodle. In Holly's case, the sire was a Standard Poodle. They were originally bred as service dogs for people who are allergic to dogs. The Goldendoodle sheds minimally and, in my opinion, has the best traits of both breeds. Holly is being trained as a therapy dog.

    40D with 70-200mm f/4L IS at 165mm. Exposure 1/250 second @f/5.6. ISO 400.

    She is 21 months old and was born on Christmas Day 2007.

    She weighs about 27 kilos and is about 66 cm at the shoulder.

    She has a personality very much like a Golden Retriever but is a little better as a watch dog. She is not vicious so would never be a guard dog. However she will bark at strangers coming on our property.

    She sheds almost not at all. Some of her littermates had coats more like a Poodle and will not shed at all. However, we like her coat better and the shedding is so minimal that it is no bother.

    She is being trained as a therapy dog to visit patients in hospitals and nursing homes to give them love and good cheer.

    She is lovely.
    At home we had 3 dogs but now they are all gone. It was when children were young. Some years ago.
    Now, we don't have any dog. But we would like to.

    May be we get one from the street. There are many left dogs on August which are "collected" by some institutions.

    Yours is lovely indeed.
