Our dogs are family pets. We have one Goldendoodle and one Standard Poodle. We are not in the dog breeding business.

We intentionally chose top quality dogs from different breeding lines.

Our mother is a Goldendoodle named “Champion’s Best Girl.” Champion’s Best Girl is a “pick of the litter” puppy from a quality purebred Golden Retriever mother and a Champion-sired Poodle father. She has a non-shedding Poodle coat but the muzzle and face structure of a Golden Retriever. Her non-shedding coat, but Golden Retriever head shape are what I believe to be the ideal Goldendoodle qualities–especially for breeding back to a Poodle. You are virtually guaranteed the Poodle coat, since it is a dominant gene (like brown eyes in humans) and since a F1b Goldendoodle is 75% Poodle. The Golden Retriever muzzle and face structure helps keep the F1b Goldendoodle from looking exactly like a Poodle.

Champion’s Best Girl is really an outstanding Goldendoodle. Nana was worth every penny and the distance we had to drive once we found her. She has a wonderful Goldendoodle temperament, and we have given her the nickname “Nana” because she is great with our children. Our Goldendoodle Nana is pictured here at 10-weeks-old with my 2-year-old son Shepherd.

Our daddy dog is a purebred Standard Poodle named Pride of Indiana. He also is “pick of the litter” (1st pick out of 9 puppies) and was worth the ten hour drive to Indiana to buy him from a friend who has two Poodles with excellent temperaments. We call Pride of Indiana “Indy” for short. I love Indy’s light red color and his sweet, curious temperament. Indy is a very quiet Poodle, but he is anything but wimpy. Our Poodle loves romps in the woods and playing in the river behind our house. Indy’s courageous temperament (almost never barks, but is not afraid of anything) and his coloring make for an excellent F1b Goldendoodle father). Indy is pictured here by a Christmas tree. He was not a Christmas present (it’s actually a really bad idea to buy someone a puppy for Christmas), but he was born about 9 weeks before Christmas. When we were ready to take our Poodle puppy home, he was groomed one last time, and the dog groomer fell in love with him and placed him under her tree to take his picture.
