It’s a good question: How many Australian Labradoodles is too many? In my opinion, it’s hard to have enough Australian Labradoodles! But that might be my addiction talking. I would get a new puppy every year, if I could figure out a way to do that.
My husband must have known this was a distinct possibility because he looked me square in the eye the day we brought Luke home and said, “Just so you know, this is the last one.” If ever there was a devastatingly well-timed preemptive strike, that was it.
I really could go for one more doodle. The problem is that it would bring the number to three. Tres Doodles. And I think that sort of tips things over. Kind of like the third kiddo. I think it’s less like “just one more” and more like “exponential growth”. But I won’t get to know this for a fact, now will I? Being on doodle-restriction, and all…
So I have to find other outlets for my doodle obsession.
Today we went with our friend Laura and her pup Elton (who is Luke’s littermate) to Pasadena for a meet up with some Beau Monde folks and their doodles. We descended on Lucky Baldwins on Raymond Ave. They were so nice to us–a big group of people with a good-sized group of dogs. They have a big outdoor area where you can have lunch and a great beer. We met some new doodle folks and got to see some we’ve known since the Doodle Romp in August. Oh, and thank you for lunch, Curtiss!
Curtiss is Beau Monde Labradoodles—where we got Sam and Luke (and Penny and Elton, who appear on Dos Doodles quite often). He invited us out to lunch so we could all meet each other and have the dogs spend time together, too. It’s a striking picture to see so many of these gorgeous dogs all together in one place. It’s pretty fun!
Pictures from lunch!
