This is our newish family dog, Daisy. (For the hard of hearing, that’s “newish,” not “Jewish.” We don’t discuss religion with our pets — though I’m quite sure our goldfish, Swimmy, is Buddhist, just seems to have a very Zen approach to life. But, oh my, I digress.)
Daisy is a Golden Doodle, part Golden Retriever, part Poodle. We’re pretty crazy about Daisy, and not just because she doesn’t shed. All the warmth and eager-to-please qualities of a Golden Retriever, but with the added smarts, long legs and bounce of a Poodle. And, yup, she drives! Fast and reckless, like a young Drew Barrymore.
Daisy is adorable! Too bad I’ve already written a Puppy Place book about a golden doodle named Noodle, so she won’t be a star. But maybe I’ll use that name sometime, with your family’s permission?
