Hi I'm Penny and we have a Labradoodle called Maisy. She is 9 months old now and is full of character and confidence. She loves water, the dirtier the better :dogtongue:!!! We live in the south of England in a place called The New Forest. It is beautiful here but because of that, if the sun comes out, so do the visitors. This just makes traffic jams !!!!! So tend to stay at home on these days. We have always had GSD's before (5 of them) so when we told our daughter that we were not getting another, but a labradoodle instead, she was horrified. Since having Maisy, she now has a puppy on order:doglaugh: ( it is now 1 week old ! ). As for training, I am useless and would really love someone to come and do it for me. How lazy is that !!! :dogbiggrin: I'll have to do something as Suzi's puppy will be making Maisy look stupid. :msngiggle:So I will have to read all I can on this site and get out in the garden now the weather is improving. Bye for now.
