A new member of the family joined us Sunday. His name is Sherlock, and he’s an 8-week-old goldendoodle.
For the uninitiated, a goldendoodle is a combination golden retriever and standard poodle. They’re loving and sweet and perpetually bouncy. It’s rather like living with your very own Tigger. (The wonderful thing about Tiggers! Tiggers are wonderful things!)
Sherlock was a Father’s Day/birthday gift for my Dad. DH and I picked the puppy up from the breeder Sunday night and Mom and Dad arrived yesterday to take possession. The little darling has been terrorizing everyone ever since. He’s very smart. The codicil to “very smart” is very stubborn. And true to his goldendoodle-Tigger nature, he’s bouncing about non-stop. It’s exhausting and entertaining and endearing all at the same time.
