  1. Oh how precious. My daughter is thinking about getting a puppy at Christmas for our little Avery. They want a much smaller breed though. He is adorable.

  2. We have had a golden doodle for a year now. We continue to be amazed at what a great dog this is. She is loyal and kind and our four kids are her WHOLE world. Doodles are fantastic! Get it for her! : )

    We have been following your daughter’s story for a while now… know that you are all being prayed for in Chicago! : ) Blessings…

  3. My Grandpa-in-law bought one for himself while going through bone-cancer, (although few months ago he has lost his battle) and we are left with the dog, but the dog is SO high energy, and so hard to train…I can’t handle it…and I am very good with dog training, I brought my puppy (who is a shih-tzu) to Pet Smart and he got trained as a puppy and he is fine and trains well.

    That’s the only thing I would be cautious of with these dogs, and they get BIG! Big, and crazy!

    The idea of getting a dog though sounds wonderful! I see Tiger is a shih-tzu and has spent time with Kate, they are the greatest…:] Of course I may be biased because that’s all I’ve ever owned!

    Praying as always!

  4. Just do some hard looking into the breeding… Golden-doodle mixes are known to not be the best mix, and are way more likely to get certain diseases. Labra-doodles are a much better option if you are picking between the two….

  5. If that’s not one of the sweetest and most gorgeous puppies I’ve ever seen, I don’t know what is.

    I think that if the doctors are OK with Kate having a dog, this would be a fantastic buddy to brighten her days during this difficult season in her life.

    Is it a Goldendoodle? We breed goldens. Precious, absolutely precious.

  6. i just got a golden doodle three weeks ago and i love her. the no shedding thing is SOOOOOO nice. she is incredibly smart! she has already learned, sit, her name and to potty outside. best investment! best personalities too!

    the only thing that you need to make sure to do is brush them daily. their hair can get matted down.

  7. I think that is just what the doctor ordered for Miss Kate! Will go a long way to lift her spirits!

    So…my vote is YES!

    Love you all!

  8. Aaron, I believe you already have the dog and it is for you, Happy Early Birthday.

    Kate will Love IT even if it is yours.

    Love you guys.

  9. Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!!! 🙂 We have a 10 year old Golden Retriever and he has been the absolute best dog ever. God sent him for my daughter when she was 8 years old and going through a hard time….he was her best friend. Praying for Kate every day.

  10. Yes, Yes and Yes. Nothing is better than puppy love. I have a big crazy collie one year old and she make me laugh many times a day. Thanks again for giving me something specific to pray about.

  11. The puppy is adorable! I am sure Kate would absolutely adore it.
    I know I am partial to our Lab!
    She is 14 years old! AND a BIG part of our Family!
    I would hope it would stay puppy size for awhile!
    Get the Dog Whisperer’s advice too (?Cesar)- besides the Docs! (:

  12. That dog is WAY too cute. It would be a great diversion. I got a new puppy about 6 months before I was diagnosed with cancer. I spent my time recovering by throwing the ball for the dog every day. It gave me something to look forward to. And the dog got regular exercise too. A dog would be a great thing.

  13. I’ve been praying for Kate since a friend who attends your church told me about her situation. I would say a dog would be an amazing gift for the whole family in the midst of this ordeal. Shortly after my husband was diagnosed with a fatal heart condition after catching a virus while deployed (he has since been miraculously healed and is back active duty – God is able no matter what!!!), he bought me a puppy. We were both far from family and friends through the 2 year health crisis and I cannot tell you how much God used that puppy to keep me sane. I needed something else to focus on that brought me pure joy, a friend that I could snuggle up with and cry with, laugh with, and just talk to when Mike was so sick and I didn’t want to add to his worries. Thinking about it brings me to tears but that dog was the best gift my husband has ever given me and I praise God for providing what I needed right when I needed it. That was four years ago and we still have Hobbes and have since added another dog into the mix. They bring me joy every day and are my babies. I can’t imagine my life without my husband and my dogs. My vote is that Kate should get the pup!

  14. Yes! Yes! Yes! Dogs are just like children in that they turn out to be exactly as we raise them. Your children all seem to grown into sweet spirits under your care and nurturing. If you and the family can do the same with the dog, it will be another lovely soul in your home. Plus, there’s nothing as therapeutic as the unconditional love that dogs give. Everyone in your home will benefit from that love.

  15. We had a Labradoodle who looks a lot like the one on your page, and he was the brightest, most amazing dog we ever had. He lived almost 18 years, was a midsized dog, and the vet attributed his wonderful health to having the stamina of a poodle and the body of a lab. I would definitely get the dog.
