Just wanted you to see pics of Goldie from yesterdays Haute Dog parade in Long Beach. She won! Her and Emma did a little dance as they walked the parade and you should have heard all the “ahhhhh’s”. She also made some labradoodle friends.
My daughter Emma has a question for you. What does the “Australian” part of the “Australian labradoodle mean?” Is a parent from Australia or is it reference to color?
I am proud of you both for winning!! What a cute bunch of pictures, thanks so much for sharing them with us at Arrowhead Labradoodle breeders!
To answer the question posed by Goldie’s sweet young owner, I will add to this post just a bit. As a Labradoodle breeder I think this is a very good question!
The Australian part of Australian Labradoodle is due to the fact that the lady, Beverly Manners, lived in Australia. Beverly was and is an Australian Labradoodle breeder! She has lots of knowledge about how genetics and animals work and so she along with her daughter worked closely together to create this wonderful breed that we love so much. Beverly first took the Labrador Retriever and the Poodle mixed in the American and English Cocker spaniel and a water dog. Last of all she added the Irish Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier. The Australian Labradoodle is an amazing dog and has had a lot of time, money and intelligence invested into it. Beverly is an older lady now and so she had all the Labradoodle breeders that have the Australian Labradoodles, with bloodlines going back to the founders lines register their Labradoodles into the MDBA data base. She has also started calling the Australian Labradoodles with these special and pure bloodlines Cobbadogs!
This has been a very exciting journey and we are excited for each one that joins us!!
