Subi's Page

Dear Lovena,

     We wanted to write and tell you just how wonderful Subi is and to share some photos with you. We sensed when we first met his mother, Fancy and one of her first litters, that her Aussiedoodle pups would be just wonderful. We were right! Two years later we came back and found Subi (born March 16, 2006) in a later litter. From his first day home, Subi was loving and friendly to everyone, but also had an independent streak that showed character. He is wonderful at playing with other friendly dogs, especially other doodles. Whenever we have walked him in the park from his puppy days to today (18 months), people have stopped us, petted him, and spontaneously remarked at how handsome and friendly he is. These remarks have even come from other dog lovers walking with their own dogs. In addition to this, Subi is extremely bright. He was house trained within a week and has never made a mistake since. He has done very well at agility class, happily running through snaking tunnels, jumping over hurdles and through rings. He even won his first agility competition!  

     Many think Subi looks like a little bear when his hair is long. However, he is very trim, weighing 57 pounds fully grown. And he is very strong: it is all muscle.

     By the way, Subi is the Australian nickname for the town of Subiaco outside of Perth, Australia. We lived there for 6 months the year before we got Subi and had a great time. It only seemed fitting to name our super Aussiedoodle after our great Australian experience!

     It is fair to say that Subi is the most wonderful dog that either of us has ever met: loving, friendly, playful, and very bright. Even the people at his doggie day care have said that Subi has a truly wonderful personality. Also, he does not shed and is hypoallergenic. (Like human hair, his hair does have to be groomed periodically to prevent matting.) We would recommend Aussiedoodles from Burkhart Kennels to anyone wanting a truly fantastic canine addition to their family!

These are photos of Subi before and after his spring grooming. We often feel that we actually own two dogs: Winter Dog and Summer Dog! They were taken just before and after his sixth birthday. He's still as loving and wonderful as ever!
