Four doodles met up this Bank Holiday – a cavapoo, a cockapoo, a goldendoodle and a labradoodle!
We all look the same, don’t we? Especially size-wise. That’s because Isla is a miniature goldendoodle and Clifford is a miniature labradoodle.
And it so happens that all our mummies hail from that distant land of Malaysia. But all our stories are different.
Bella started coming to our Hyde Park Doodle Meets. Her mum and dad came to the UK more than 10 years ago and when they finally settled into work and bought a house in London, they felt it was time for a dog. So along came Bella, a cavapoo. And to be expected, their world revolves around Bella!
Isla’s mum, Chelsea moved to London from Southampton recently when she started working in London. She was looking for doodle meets when someone tagged us on her Facebook search. Isla, is a miniature goldendoodle and an Assistance Dog. How Isla came to Chelsea is in some ways heartbreaking – and this is her story.
Dogs connect – they surely do.
Chelsea’s a great proponent for adult rescues – “what you invest and adopting an adult is so much more rewarding because they are grateful, the bond is stronger, they don’t have the same chewing and biting tendencies and they can hold their bladders for longer! There also isn’t a gamble about the adult coat, behaviours or temperament issues that usually surface during their teen/adolescent years.”
Chelsea is in the process of returning to Singapore for her health treatment and will be taking Isla with her. We wish her well in her recovery and we look forward to both their returning to London after her recovery for future rendezvous!
