Mr Paddington

There's someone I’d like you to meet. He's tall, dark, handsome & came into my life a few months ago. 

He also likes to chase after leaves, leap into the sky after seagulls and digs gargantuan holes in the garden.

It’s my pleasure to introduce to you the Cocktail Saturdays pup’, Mr Paddington (aka Paddy).

Paddy has just turned 6 months old. He's a Goldendoodle; his mum is a standard Poodle, and his dad a Golden Retriever. We've always had Golden Retrievers in our family. They’re beautiful dogs with an outgoing and athletic nature together with a calm affectionate temperament. However, the one downside to a Golden Retriever is the shedding of their coat. Hence why we decided upon a Goldendoodle. Paddy is an F1 Goldendoodle which means he only sheds lightly, if at all. They’re part of the so called “hypo allergenic” breed of dogs. 

We decided upon his name for two reasons, firstly because my young niece and nephew were watching the film Paddington when we decided to buy a new pup and secondly, he resembles a Peruvian bear!

He's currently in the teething stage, none of our furniture is safe from him leaving his mark (quite literally). An antique chest of draws, a dining table and a kitchen unit have all fallen victim to Paddy's super-sharp gnashers. 

He has a wonderfully friendly nature and I’m sure you will see him popping up in future posts...
