Coda's dad says: After much research we decided a goldendoodle was a perfect match for our family, and Coda has not let us down. He is such a joyful, confident pup! We have been in the process of socializing him these past few weeks and nothing much seems to scare him. He has been on jeep rides, boat rides, town festivals -- you name it. He has been pretty much potty-trained since we got him home. He has never cried through the night, and at 11 weeks he is able to "hold it" all night, although he does wake up at 5:45 a.m. ready for potty and play. He is already a pro at playing fetch and he loves to stalk his toys and hunt for ice cubes in the kiddie pool. Whenever he passes by our full-length mirror he pauses and looks at himself, sometimes to bark or sometimes just to check out the other dog on the other side of that glass. Every time he takes a nap, we think he grows a few inches!
