When my daughter asked a stranger about his beautiful, friendly goldendoodle at the Ithaca Farmers Market last summer (just a few months after the loss of our 14 year old lab), little did I know we would have a special doodle of our own just six months later! Theo has brought so much joy to our whole family with his engaging personality and people smarts. It’s like having another child in the house, just with a lot of fluff! Choosing a new furry family member is a daunting task – will he have the right disposition, how will we train him, will he like people and other dogs? On every count, Theo has been a dream come true. We cannot thank you enough for raising Theo through his early weeks with such love and attention, and helping us choose him as a perfect fit for our family.
