We got a pup.

The family has wanted one for a long time. I have allergies, so I’ve been a little less gung-ho about it. I had heard that the various poodle hybrid breads are hypoallergenic, so I did a little snore research into them.

They don’t shed. Not nearly as much as a non-doodle. That is helpful for allergies, but it’s not quite hypoallergenic.

It’s the dander that causes the reaction. So far I’ve only had two allergic reactions. Both of which happened after petting the dog and then rubbing my eyes.

Otherwise its been a typical puppy raising experience. Which is to say that we’re cleaning up a lot of pee and our sleep patterns have been nuked.

Oh, her name is Lexie and she is a Goldendoodle.
