We have decided to increase the size of our family by one. One puppy that is. We had been putting off getting a dog until we have settled on to Berry Oaks, but we did not want to wait any longer. Once we had decided on a Labradoodle, Joyce scoured the breeders list and picked one, the Mountain Creek Doodles, in Simpsonville, SC, just outside of Greenville.

In case you are not familiar with a Labradoodle, it is a mix of a Poodle and a Labrador Retriever. For more information on a Labradoodle, click here. This particular litter is an F1b with a caramel female Standard Poodle, Lucy, and a chocolate male F1 mini-Labradoodle, Wonka.

Lucy's litter was born October 25th. Four boys and five girls. These puppies are expected to be between 25 and 40 pounds. Not much taller than two feet. Just the right size to travel with. We are sure it will love the Fifth Wheel. They are now 3 1/2 weeks old and are growing like weeds in a wet spring. They are adorable. Check out the new pictures and video: (Click here)

We have named the puppy Guinness, for obvious reasons, and are supposed to pick it up the second week in December. We can't wait. They'll be a lot more about Guinness as this blog progresses.

Congrats on the new pup.

I like this blog location better than the other one. I've updated my link from my blog.
