What is he? you may well ask. He’s a golden doodle. That’s right a cross between a golden retriever and a poodle, and I think they’re hella gorgeous. Why would I, a person who has never owned anything but mutts want a ’boutique dog.’ Well, duh, look at him,he’s gorgeous! We’ve talked about getting a dog for Luke for a while. We’ll probably wait a little longer, but I adore these dogs. I understand the blond is more popular, but I think they’re actually more fabulous in black. See, now I want two of them. And just think, I said I didn’t want anything else with long hair after living for decades with a long-hair cat. Oh the things you do for love!!!
