Dogs in Pastel
Pastel on pastel card. Sammy is a black Goldendoodle (Golden Retreiver x Standard Poodle). The 50/50 cross is sought after as theoretically you get the best of both breeds. Her owners are lucky in that she is a great representative of both breeds. She is highly intelligent (Poodle) and very loving and calm (Golden Retriever) and as an added bonus she does not shed.
Sammy spends her days in the yard with Craig who is retired. Her favorite thing in the yard is the lizards. She will hold a point on a lizard for 15+ minutes! This is great if you want to hunt lizards. When she is not in the yard she is running errands with Craig in the car. Her nights are spent on the couch, which is something that none of her owners other dogs have ever been allowed to do! In their words:
Paula: 'In our lifetimes we have had many dogs and she is by far the most intelligent. Craig: "She is without a doubt the most fun, personable, intelligent dog that I have ever owned." Her portrait was a gift from Paula to Craig for their 31st anniversary.
