For the record: we want a goldendoodle

Kate and I want to get a goldendoodle. I’ve wanted a goldendoodle ever since I saw my first one in the Stanford shopping center about 6 years ago. It’s this great combination of a golden retriever and a poodle that fits all my requirements (medium sized, soft, smart, huggable, doesn’t shed).

We just learned that the golden doodle is on the top of the Obama puppy list. Well for the record, we wanted one before Malia and Sasha were even promised a puppy!

And in case our future landlord is reading this (crazy how public everything is these days): don’t worry. We know pets aren’t allowed in your apartment. The goldendoodle will have to wait until we live somewhere else 🙂



  1. I have a 160lb Dane. while I love my dog, I will not make that mistake again. I had my eye on labradoodles, until I saw a longhair goldendoodle in los gatos. It was like a longhaired-ringlet-dreadlock-shaggy dog. I share the same affection for this experimental breed. They are way too cute.Jon Talbert

  2. We’ve had a Cockerpoo called Pickles and now a Whoodle called Chutney. A whoodle is a cross between a Irish Wheaton Terrier and a Poodle. These poodle mixes are an absolute delight. I trained Chutney (Chuts as we call him) to ring a cowbell on the front door when he wants to go potty. I would love a Goldendoodle, what a gobsmacking beaut they are
