Only problem is that everything sticks to his coat. Walk by a bush, bam, covered in little pieces of green leaves. And his chin and the hair over his eyes seem to grow pretty fast so I try to keep that trimmed.
I can imagine Molly with a pony cut - it would be hilarious, but I'm not going to do it. It's so hard to tell what their coat is going to be like. When I got Molly at 8 weeks she was dark chocolate brown and is now a dirty blonde with red highlights. Her color has changed so often, I have no idea what the end result will be as she has dark roots. She does not shed as in hair falling all over the place BUT I groom her almost daily as the downy soft hairs will mat if not removed and the matting will be close to the skin and extremely uncomfortable. These dogs grow to a nice size and there is a lot of hair on them! If I ever get Molly clipped I will still groom her often.

A man I run into quite often has a Portuguese Water Dog that is clipped and the man tells how when he takes the dog to the groomer the coat comes off in a solid piece like a sweater. I wanted to say he shouldn't brag about it as it shows he doesn't groom the dog between visits.

For additional info specifically for these mixes check out some of the doodle forums. There are a couple of doodle breeder forums. I like keeping an eye on what's happening regarding health problems etc. So far, so good.

You're going to have a blast with Apollo.

Welcome!

I love that pony cut. Too cute!!! There's another member here with a Labradoodle, Sophie. You might enjoy that. I think it's a great mix...lab or golden with poodle. I can understand how you are enjoying your dog so much. I have worked with one Labradoodle and he was a joy. And have met several others...but haven't met a Goldendoodle yet.

True, they aren't necessarily a breed. And at first, when putting two different breeds together, they are a mix or if no good, sound, scientific breeding methods are used, they keep on coming out irregularly. But when it comes to the point where repetitive homogeny in the offspring is achieved, the mix can be called a breed rather than a mix or mutt. It is called "fixing a breed." This has happened with some breeders (I think primarily in Australia) with Labradoodles. Labradoodles are a recognized breed in those situations. No, they don't have to be recognized by a club. But it is how all breeds started out. Trial and error, a period of time where there was not much uniformity and then finally fixing the breed.

Anyhow, welcome and can't wait to see lots of pictures.
