Meet Leo, our Golden Doodle, on his first day home. He was born February 22, 2006. He came from Golden Doodle Acres in Neenah, Wisconsin. How lucky we were to find a breeder in the same city we live! We chose one of the curliest puppies hoping that shedding would be minimal to none. Leo was the lightest color in the litter.
Leo sleeps with his nose in our shoes, hmm??! His hair is getting wavier.

Leo with Kirk, almost 4 months and about 36 pounds.
Leo's first haircut, just before his 4 month birthday. Leo is always hot so we find it best to keep his hair shorter.
Leo and Kirk, first day of school. Leo 6 ½ months. Leo's coat has big loose curls in some places, spirals in others, and wavy in others. His coat is very thick and soft.

Recently, Leo's dad, Caesar, came to live with us. We are a guardian home for Caesar. He is still used for breeding at Golden Doodle Acres. Leo loves having a playmate!!

He loves going to puppy classes, mostly because he is such a social dog and loves playing with other dogs. He has passed 4 levels of obedience and next week we start Rally Obedience.
