We all agreed as a family to get a dog. I research and research what type of dog. (I should have put research on my list as things I like to do.) My oldest “J” is twelve and became allergic to cats at the age of ten. How do you suddenly become allergic to cats at ten, when you’ve been around them several times a year since birth (need to do research on this). But taking that into consideration, I was concerned that he would “suddenly” become allergic to our family dog. I decided to go with one of the “allergy-friendly” dogs. Since I wanted a golden retriever or a lab for my family, I started there with the mixed breads. I searched every shelter and rescue list, but of course no one could guarantee that it was a mix that would be “allergy-friendly”. So I started researching (love it) area breeders. We wanted a medium sized dog, little to no shedding and family friendly. Long story short we decided on a goldendoodle.
He only missed one mark. He didn’t stay “medium” sized. He is kind of extra large size. Yes he is a golden doodle and yes he is black. Think about what color the dad (std poodle) was.
Sorry, I got side tracked. Taco! How did we come up with the name, Taco. Ever tried to name a pet when all three family members (DH didn’t want a vote) have to agree. After 3 days of throwing out names, we were driving around town. I was just naming anything to try to get an agreement. We turned the corner and I yelled “Taco”, because there was a Taco Bell across the street. Both boys yelled “yes”. So that was how he became “Taco”. I’ve decided that if we ever get another dog that I would name them Mac and King. Get it?
