Meet Charlie, the newest member of our family. He's a 7.2 lb. goldendoodle (or "dood" for short). This breed is a cross between a poodle and golden retriever. In theory, this mating yields a hypoallergenic dog that is smart, playful, highly trainable, and tolerant of kids. We'll see! All we know now is that he's cute and playful, and seems to cherish a good nap. The boys haven't touched any toys since Charlie came home.
