The First Pet- What's a Goldendoodle?

You have to love this country where there is as much attention, if not more , about Michelle Obama's dress the night of the election and now what type of dog the First Family will get when they move to the White House.

Yesterday was the first time I heard of Goldendoodles (pictured above) and Labradoodles, a cross between a Labrador or Golden Retriever and a Standard or Miniature Poodle. These type of dogs are recommended for several reasons. They are mid-sized, shed very little, are easy to train, and have an even temperament. Sounds like Obama. Just kidding.

So who were past President's best friend. Click here to view some Presidential shots with dogs and cats. My favorite--Socks the cat posing at the press podium. Now we know who was really running affairs during the Clinton Administration!

Here is an ABC report on what type of dog is best for the First Family. What type of dog would you recommend? POST A COMMENT!

Hi there- you stopped over at Donkey Dreams and left a nice comment. Thanks! I am originally from innesota and will have to come back and read your blog in depth. You love animals too- good! I'll be posting soon about how my art print line will be supporting my efforts to help senior dogs/cats who are in shelters.

Cheers to your efforts. May your husband be safe and home soon.
