Welcome, Cooper!

We’d like to introduce the newest (and last) member of our family, Cooper. We had promised Sarah a dog when she turned six which somehow turned into Christmas. I knew I’d better research and find one of these dogs as they tend to sell out even before they’re born. Also, Linda is mildly (in some cases) allergic to animals- cats and dogs to be particular so we had to find a breed as hypoallergenic as possible. No breed exists that is truly hypoallergenic ┬ábut there are some that come closer than others. Enter the Australian Labradoodle. I found a ALAA Gold Level Breeder in Setauket, Long Island who was just a pleasure to deal with and happened to have a litter of puppies available about the same time we were to come home from Disney. We luckily got our first choice and the rest is history.

Cooper’s been great. 99% house broken right from the start and smart as a whip. It’s hard to describe: he’s quite playful and will chase a ball around forever but when you pick him up in your arms he turns into a complete mush. He loves to be around the kids and is very patient. Cooper’s been exceeding our expectations since he’s come home. Let’s keep our fingers crossed he keeps the same demeanor as he grows. Speaking of growing, Cooper is forecasted to grow between 30 and 40 pounds. A good sized medium dog, great for camping and living in confined spaces like RVs. He’s going on 12 weeks now and we have our first vet appointment next week.

If you happen to be looking for a Labradoodle, get in touch with Eileen with Labradoodles of Long Island. You won’t be disappointed. Thanks for stopping by and if you have any questions about Labradoodles or camping with dogs, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line.
