I have been keeping a secret…. from my kids. We are surprising them with a puppy! A cute little fuzzy cuddly adorable Goldendoodle Puppy! But this little guy will be more than just a family pet. We will train him to be a therapy dog. If you’ve been around the blog long enough you know that we moved from Texas to Wisconsin 3 years ago leaving all our family. We all miss being around family, but I think my son took it the hardest. We were literally around family at least 5 days a week and then all the sudden they just weren’t there anymore. Aubrey was 4 when we moved and he’s 7 now. We thought it would get easier. We thought he would adapt, but the truth is he is homesick every.single.day! He’s been asking for a dog recently so after much discussion, we will be bringing home a new family member at the end of April.
When we first started talking about getting a dog the first thing I knew was I needed on that didn’t shed much. I have horrible allergies and living in a place where there is snow on the ground pretty much 6 months out of the year there is no such thing as an outside dog! My husband and I both like big dogs and have always loved labs/retrievers… so we decided on a goldendoodle. More specifically we are getting a F1B Goldendoodle which is a goldendoodle (half poodle half golden retriever) bred with a standard size poodle. So these puppies are 75% standard poodle 25% golden retriever making it more likely they won’t shed! Plus they are just ADORABLE! When I went to pick out which puppy we would be bringing home I got to play pet photographer! I had so much fun doing this! I’m by no means a professional photographer, but I like to try ; ) So let me introduce you to the newest member of our family:
Emmet aka River (his puppy name)
I can’t wait to train him. Once he’s old enough we will take him to hospitals and nursing homes so that he can not only help our family but many others as well!
And here are all of his adorable litter mates!
Aren’t they just seriously adorable!! We are so exciting and I can’t wait to see the kid’s faces!!

Well I think your photos are stunning. Emmet is adorable! And I love his name too! Hope he brings joy to your sons heart and your lives as well. I just lost my Golden Lab and she has the best nature, was my daughters best friend so I can see Emmet being the same for your son.
Aw, I’m so sorry for your loss! Pets really do become one of the family and make such a difference in our lives! : )
We have an eight year old goldendoddle. Good luck with the training, she is as crazy as they come, just like a puppy. She is a special gift to our family. We are her grandparents having her three days a week and every night for dinner. She likes our house better. She does not shed at all which wonderful. Her parents are from the mid west , they were outside dogs so yours will adjust great. Have fun with the new puppy. It will change your lives.
Thanks Jackie! We are super excited!!
This is seriously the cutest thing I’ve seen! You rock as a pet photographer and I am super jealous of your son and your family getting to have such an adorable companion! I wish he’ll have a blissful life with you and that your son’ll feel better about missing your family.
Thanks so much!! : ) We can’t wait! Only a few more weeks!
What great pictures!! So adorable!
Thanks Cheryl!! : )

Haha, yes, I’ve heard the doodles thing they are human, there are some pretty funny pictures online! We can’t wit to bring him home! My kids are going to love him!
We have a Cockapoo and let me tell you, you will not regret it! Congrats on the new little guy! And a full size golden and full size poodle, I don’t think he’s going to stay little too long! Hope he helps your son as well, Its amazing how therapeutic animals can be.
Thanks Melissa! Nope… not a going to be a little guy, he is already so big from the pictures I’ve seen! We are super excited to have a therapy dog : ) Thanks for stopping by!

You are a great animal photographer-in-the making. [just wait till these adorable bundles move!] We had a Golden for almost 15 years and still miss him. Boy, did he shed though. Needed an industrial strength vacuum cleaner. Will be interesting to see whether the shedding gene has been suppressed by the introduction of poodle genes.
Aww thanks so much Anne! Yes, we used to have a lab and I could have made puppies with the hair he lost! I’m pretty hopeful he won’t shed since neither of his parents do!
Aw, how adorable!! Congratulations on the new puppy!!
Thanks Crystal! : ) It’s been so hard keeping the secret from the kids. I can’t wait to see their faces!!

I worrying about physical well-being is unrealistic if there is no psychological good. And now many people are in a psychological crisis due to the problems that have fallen this awful year. I would conclude therefore that I must see a online therapist . But because of quarantine, many don’t know how. But you can’t do that now, and you can order the best online therapists with great help. It helped me. It helped me. Now, I hope everybody benefits.

I used to be an animal photographer, too. I did everything from shooting pets in studios and exhibitions, to photographing wildlife around the world. But I’ve moved into the realm of online casinos. There’s more money there. This page with casino list illustrates what I do now.
Our neighbors will come to our home often and they are familiar to our dog. If they come our dog won’t be bothered. But one day our neighbor came, we were not home, and our daughter was alone. Our dog stood between the neighbor and our daughter and never allowed the neighbor to take one step forward.Paws Bistro
Once I had a great time using these simple card games. It seems to me that everyone had such a period. But it wasn’t enough for me to just play. I wanted to try my hand at real money games. Have you ever visited an online casino website? I can advise you free slot machine games without downloading or registration – There are a huge number of games, including pokies. Everyone can find cool games to play!
You have a good point here!I totally agree with what you have said!!Thanks for sharing your views…hope more people will read this article!!!

When I thought of bringing home a dog, I was very clear in my mind that dog must not be aggressive, destructive and noisy. Keeping that in mind I brought home a pug puppy and he turned to be exactly as per my expectations.gift for friend who lost dog
Pet owners can help avoid burns by choosing other surfaces to walk on or by walking their pets in the morning or evening. Test the surface by placing your hand just above the ground. Be careful of asphalt. Asphalt or metal surfaces can get extremely hot in the summer and can burn paws and reflect heat back on your pet. fancy guppies
It was by far my favorite carpet we ever had. Full disclosure we upgraded to the memory foam padding underneath, so I’m not sure if that played the role in how it held up, but I’ve encouraged the family replacing carpet to look into this type.shar pei dog mini
Dogs can get excited and jump up. Unfortunately, this is enough to knock toddlers off their feet. Some behaviourists suggest sending them for a time out on their doggy bed if they misbehave like that. Don’t let any of your pets climb into the baby’s crib.fancy guppy fish
