Our Story: How We Fell in Love With Labradoodles

My name is Karen; my husband Mike and I live with our doodles in Clarksburg, California. I'll try and be brief with my story which leads to my passion for Labradoodles, I was first introduced to the Labradoodle breed during my son's lengthy hospital stay in Palo Alto, California. It was LOVE at first sight!!!

My 34-year-old son Tim passed away Sept 17, 2013, from complications of a double lung transplant due to his diagnosis of pulmonary fibrosis in January 2011. Needless to say, it was a nightmare. Tim has two children, ages 17 and 12, that now spend countless hours with my husband, myself, and our doodles!

During the long periods of Tim's hospital stays, we were fortunate enough to meet a beautiful Labradoodle. Generally, dogs are not allowed on the hospital transplant floors, but because we are such dog lovers, as well as the severity of Tim's illness, we were allowed canine visits. The minute I saw him, I was hooked head over heels in love with the breed.

After Tim's passing, I experienced a loneliness like never before. However, in the back of my head, I could almost hear the calling to learn more about this breed. Thus my research began. I researched the breed and found the answer for my instant connection to these beautiful animals. They are truly delightful, loving, intuitive little clowns who can steal your heart in a moment's glance!

I submitted an application to become a guardian/forever home to a beautiful female multigeneration labradoodle puppy. Our hearts will never be the same. Since her arrival, I have developed a deep love and passion for my dog/breed and have decided this is not only my mission but my desire and passion to start a quality labradoodle breeding business. If I am able to help others so they too may experience the love and joy of owning such a wonderful companion, then I will have accomplished my mission.

My commitment to keeping this breed as pure and healthy as possible is my top priority along with providing the dogs with lots of love and compassion and only selecting the same when considering placement.

I recently retired from working 27 years for the state to stay home and take care of my son; I always knew I'd find something to do. I never dreamed my desire to become a Labradoodle mom was what would find me.
