Apparently we do not have a post for Dane so I got busy today and took pictures of her. She looks very blonde with the sun shining on her but she is actually apricot. Dane was born June 3, 2012. Her mother is Kloe, an outstanding Golden Retriever with everything going for her in looks, temperament, confirmation and intelligence. Her father is Einstein. He is a bit smaller for a Standard Poodle but completely confirmationally correct and just a pleasure to have on the place. This makes Dane an F1 Golden Doodle. Kloe always had a rough spot on her nose from opening the kennel latches with her nose, the kids would show everyone how smart she was and take the snap off the latch and wait about 30 seconds until Kloe discovered the snap gone and out she would come, much to the delight of the children!
Dane had her first litter on August 9, 2014 (check out these boys and girls for yourself). The sire is Cesar, my Chocolate Standard Poodle who outweighs Einstein by a full 10 lbs. now. This makes her pups F1B non shedding Golden Doodles. Dane and Cesar’s pups have the best of the best for Grandparents and parents, all nine are black but are now showing signs of Brindling, which Cesars pups do no matter what color they start out as. I jokingly tell people that women pay good money to have their hair dyed like these dogs turn out.
Dane did a great job of mothering her pups and wanted to stay with them long after she was out of milk. Some mothers want out for good when the pups are about 8 weeks old and only stand to nurse. Dane not only laid down but rolled around and played with her pups, it was a delight to pull up the lawn chair and watch the antics of this litter.
