In 2012 we had to put down our 15 year old miniature dachshund, Lucy, due to a heart problem that she was not strong enough for surgery. We were so devastated at our lost and knew she would always hold a place in our hearts.
Fast forward 4 years later, when our 3 kids had gotten old enough that they were now asking about getting a puppy, we began our search. .Even though we loved our dachshund, we decided a little bit larger breed that was energetic enough to keep up the kids.
As I began searching dogs on Pinterest there was this cute picture of an Australian
Labradoodle that I fell in love with at first site. It had the most beautiful red curly
teddy bear coat, with dark loving eyes. Instantly I went on my own search to find
our own perfect Australian Labradoodle.
That is when we found Athena! She has given our family of five so much joy. She
loves playing ball with the kids, swimming, and enjoys meeting new people. We
couldn't have been more luckier that she came into our lives!
And here we are today hoping to continue that joy
we found with our own Australian Labradoodle in others!
