I have been the ultimate lurker for over a year here. I read the training and raw forums a lot and think this site is great. I figured I should add a pic of my dogs here. At the time i joined I just had Hershey, but in the last year we have bought a house with a big yard and adopted a rescue, Gustopher.
Both are doodles, but i dont use the designer dog words, i just call them lab/poodle cross when people ask. Hershey doesnt shed at all, Gus does, about 1/2 as much as a lab IMO. More improtantly they dont elicit an alergic responce. We wanted labs but they make it so my best man cant come into the house. He has a standard poodle and we prefer to have more of a lab personality, hence the cross.
