Chloe is a 9-year-old, happy-go-lucky Goldendoodle and the inspiration behind Happy-Go-Doodle®. Her favorite activities are playing fetch, going for walks…and making people smile. Oh, and there was that time she chased a possum in her backyard. I’m pretty sure she loved that, too.
Chloe’s sidekick is a storyteller, marketing communications consultant, mom, and best friend to her Goldendoodle. Her professional background is in communications and innovation, but she grew up making mud pies under a big oak tree on the family farm. As a child, her pets were the heroes in all of her outdoor adventures. Today, the heroes in her stories are Chloe, and other amazing “-oodle” dogs who bring out the best in people.
A friendly “hello” from Chloe’s sidekick
Stop by for a peek at our journey from parenthood to doodlehood
With two kids off to college, my husband and I are way past the days of 2 a.m. feedings, the padding of little feet on the wood floor in the middle of the night, and bleary-eyed mornings from sleeping on the far corners of the bed so that one of our little peanuts can snuggle with us after having a bad dream.
Yes, we’ve turned the corner on parenthood and traded it in for Doodlehood. Two a.m. feedings have been replaced with the thud of 40 pounds of pure Goldendoodle love clamoring up on our bed to snuggle in between us. The pitter-patter of footsteps has been traded in for the clitter clatter of toenails on our wood floor. And we are (yes, really) sleeping on the edges of the bed again, so that our big kiddoodle can sprawl belly-side up (with no modesty whatsoever) between us.
We hope to share as much joy with others as Chloe shares with others
So now that you know a little about us (mainly that we’re over the moon for four-legged friends, especially those with “oodle” in their name), we hope you’ll stop by and follow along on our happy journey from parenthood to Doodlehood.
You will find everyday life stories about caring Goldendoodles (and “oodle mixes”)—purposefully grounded in joy and optimism. Because Goldendoodles (and all dogs) bring out the best in people.
