I never thought I'd say this, but that Labradoodle is so cute! :love:


Although...

"Prices for labradoodles have since climbed to $3,400 or more"

I'll bet that a good chunk of the people who are in the market for hypoallergenic dogs would fill all their "puppy needs" at Toys R Us, in the stuffie section, for a cool $9.95 woof.

Those who really are allergic will likely have to dump the poor dog once the adult fur comes in and they realize that the dog is more LAB than doodle, roodle whatever!!!

that's my rftd!!(rant for the day)

Heck, even those dust magnets won't help with their allergies!
