Puppy Pick Day

While we were sorry to miss the March for Science and Earth Day celebrations in New England, we were very excited to pick our new puppy today. The puppy is one of nine  Goldendoodles (Dam is a poodle, and Sire is a  goldendoodle).  All the puppies were great and we would have been happy with any one of them (or two or three?). The pups ranged from dark red to light apricot shades. They are 3/4 poodle and 1/4 golden and most have wavy or curly coats which means they are non-shedding and hypoallergenic (to most!).

After much deliberation we chose "Green" boy, as indicated by a green ribbon.  We are looking forward to seeing him in three weeks when he comes come with us. In the meantime we are catching up on sleep and thinking of suitable names.   For those who are interested here the rules on names:

1. No food names (e.g., biscuit, cookie muffin)
2. Two syllables, and preferably starting with.a hard sound.
3. No common "people" names  (e.g., Tom, Dick or Harrry)
4. Must be able to shout 3 times from your front door or in the dog park and feel good about it
