Ripley's Page

Ripley was born on Lovina's farm on June 16, 2001.  This was the first litter of Labradoodles bred at Lovina's (perhaps the first in Canada, that we know of.)  Ripley now lives with The Dahlin Family in Unionville, Ontario (Toronto).  His littermates on this site are Jasper and Amber.

Ripley's mom was a black Lab named Sasha, and his dad was a white standard poodle named Bentley.  Ten pups were born, and eight pups survived - 5 black males, 2 blonde females, and 1 blonde male.

"Our sleepy guy"

...using his sheepskin toy as a pillow...
Ripley is a very smart and lovable guy.  He's calm and good-natured.  He's housebroken (14 weeks) and obeys basic commands ( sit, lie down, give paw, stay and come.)
