( for Jan, of Poodle and Dog Blog)
Cockadoodles, GoldenDoodles, WeinerDoodles, Masti-Doodles, FrogADoodles – seems there’s no breed of dog that just wouldn’t be better with a little bit of Doodle added to it. A Doodle, for those who don’t know, is just about any type of poodle cross. The portion of Poodle in your Doodle might vary, but it’s in there – and that, apparently, is what makes it ‘rare’.
Just when you think Doodle crosses couldn’t possibly get any weirder, we proudly present the MyLittleDoodle – a dog for the newish millenium.
From caninehorizons.com –
With the recent tremendous marketing of Poodle crosses, we thought a cross that had unique qualities not already found in the Poodle made more sense.
After long hours in the lab tinkering with the DNA, we have created a “doodle” which does not lessen the original.
(Note: A couple of “My Little Pony” toys accidentally fell in the gene splicer, hence the neon-pink hair.)
In addition to the traits of the Poodle, the Ponydoodle can be ridden by small children, mow your lawn, and can be maintained on either a meat-based diet or on hay and grain — thereby cutting the cost of feed.
Our Ponydoodles are between 21-24 inches tall. They have great dispositions and are patient with small children. They are highly intelligent, learn quickly, and are eager to please.
Ponydoodles are athletic and excel in such events as jumping, driving, obstacles, halter, and “liberty” classes (where the Ponydoodle is turned loose in a ring to perform to music).
Being somewhat stronger swimmers than their Poodle counterparts (occasionally wild Ponydoodles have been seen swimming the bay between Chincoteague and Assateague), Ponydoodles have also done remarkably well in duck retrieving trials.
Best of all, after a day in the pasture or working in the performance ring, Ponydoodles can curl up beside you on the sofa to watch T.V.
