Just recently I bought my wife a dog for her birthday! I've never grown up with a dog, but I've always loved them. It's a male mini goldendoodle named Graham.
He is a mix between a golden retriever and poodle. He'll get to be about 30-40 lbs, 15 inches and he doesn't shed which I love!! Its feels like I have a kid right now to take care of but it's definitely worth it.
At least kids have diapers on when they go to the bathroom! Graham just took a nice little poo right in front of the TV! That wasn't nice to clean up but he's definitely worth it! When I come home from having a bad day and I just see him so excited to see me waving his tail, there's no better feeling! They always say a dog is a man's best friend! I'll have him around Toledo when we come back!
