She’s grown from this…

to this…

in just 4 months!

Maggie is a micro-mini golden doodle. Needless to say; she gets a LOT of ooooh’s and awwww’s when I take her for walks. She is 6 months old now; does that mean her puppy stage is almost over? I sure hope so, it’s been exhausting for this pregnant mama!

I’ll be honest, most days I want to get rid of her. Good thing she’s cute, my boys love her, and hubby keeps saying it’s just my raging pregnancy hormones and not to make any rash decisions till a while after having baby. HA! “Just get through the puppy stage”, everyone keeps telling me! She’s a fur ball of endless energy. Atleast it’s a sign of her being healthy, right? As far as indoor dogs go, I do highly recommend her breed! We’ve had her for 4 months and I’ve never found a single hair in our house yet! The only time hubby sneezes is when he brushes her, so I take on that responsibility. She is the perfect size for my boys; not too small & delicate but not too big! Supposed to grow up to 20 lbs so we’ll see. I haven’t weighed her in awhile.

To all you puppy lovers out there, I have a new respect for you! I think they are more work then a child! Here’s to hoping I make it through the “puppy stage”! If you are considering getting a puppy, I suggest you do your research and understand the responsibilities that come with owning a dog. And don’t get one when you are pregnant! Lesson learned. If you are a mom and your kids want a puppy, just realize that YOU will be the one who ends up taking care of it!

Happy Monday!

    I’ve been looking for a goldendoodle for awhile now and had not even considered looking for a miniature version. Can you tell me where you purchased your adorable dog from?!

    She’s so cute! I know it’s really hard to have a puppy, we have one too. It’s an german shepherd. He has so many energy and he wants to do what he wants. They take alot of energy and patience, but they’re worth it!

    he’s so adorable! i love the fact the he doesn’t shed. we own a maltese/poodle and he doesn’t grow. max weight they said was 15 lbs. he also doesn’t shed. they are a handful while they are still young just like little children.

    I am mainly a blog stalker of yours, but I could not resist commenting on this post. Maggie is way too gorgeous! We have a long haired english cream mini daschund and we get the ooh’s and aaah’s as well because he looks so unusual. Brody turned one year old a month ago and I promise it gets easier. I think every day of Brody’s first year I was tempted to put him up for sale. Now I only think that about every three days. 😉 Luckily, we live in Germany (VERY dog friendly) and I was able to take him to a German dog trainer and that worked wonders. Good luck and now you have inspired me to go out and photograph Brody some more. 🙂 xoxo

    Can you share the breeder info where you got your doodle? We have been looking for one. She is adorable!

      Hi Dana! I wish I could. She was out of BC, then moved to Calgary. Said she’d be in contact with her new number and address but haven’t heard from her since 🙁

    Your puppy is absolutely beautiful! I have one that could be her twin, he is the same color, about 5 months old and also full of energy. He is always into something, I have to watch him closely. He is so cute, just like yours. Sometimes he actually sleeps and then I can relax a little, not much though because when he wakes up he has renewed energy!!!! Keep taking good care of him and he will settle down. Good Luck to you
