  1. I am surprised that a Labrador retriever was not mentioned. I have had Yellow Labs for years and for at least the first year, they require almost constant attention during their waking hours. They love to chase and retrieve, chew everthing in site and play “tug of war” with certain toys. In general they are very active and loving dogs and crave your attention. Love em’ always.

  2. Dave, I hear ya. I was surprised Lab’s weren’t on the list, too. My prettry girl is black and will 4 on April Fools Day. Also have Lab- Doberman mix who is almost 3, hasn’t calmed a bit, yet! Hug your yellow for me-Im POSITIVE would love him/her, too.
    Sorry, Teri, I have 5 dogs, but no Golden Doodle. Know nothing other than Goldens are VERY high energy for 1st 2-3 yrs
