UGH!!!! If I didn't know better I'd think it's a joke. How about Shiht-poo (shih tzu and poodle) or what about a cock-tese (cocker spaniel and maltese). I mean really, it's just so ridiculous!

added material

Ugh is right - how disgusting! Poor dogs!! Stupid people! Don't they realize if they really want a mixed breed, they could find what they are looking for at any Rescue. Of course, then they would not have some unique story to tell @work and @parties. Some ppl are sooooooooo ughhhhhhhhhhh!!

I had to add - looked at that page. I just have to have a whoodle and a scoodle. Give me a break, OMG!!

It seems these dogs were in the shelter before someone decided to make money off of them and turn them into a so called breed or hybred.
Do you suppose someone said, hey these mixes at the shelter are really popular lets breed them and charge lots of money.

I cant imagine a bulldog poodle cross I would imagine the breeding for that one would be horrific.

Why is everydog mixed with a poodle, is that the ultimate dog why not just have a poodle then.

Because then you can call your dog a ____-oodle and everything is cuter with "oodle" at the end

Myself, I like not knowing what my dog is, that way I can tell people what ever I feel like telling them. Often it's "she's a lab/whippet/kangaroo cross"

Amazing

I find it amazing that people pay big bucks for what is essential a mutt. In my obdience class a fellow class mate payed $1000 for a goldendoodle(half poodle/halfgolden retriever) I.e. a mutt you could have picked up from the pound yet these seemingly intellegent people have been duped into believing they have a new "breed". ( I wonder if the believe of government isn't run by a bunch of self serving crooks as well ) (sorry had to get in a small political dig)

I am a Jonothan Kellerman novel and ever since I edited a book for a friend (Pandemic in case anyone has read it), I notice the most innane and obscure things in books!! Doesn't ruin the reading experience but gives me pause. In this one - his latest - he refers to one of the victims of a cold case as a 10 year old cockipoo or something like that. Have ppl been breeding these designer dogs for that long? It seems to me I only heard of them in the last few yrs. Mind you, he is in LA so I don't know.....

Anyway, it made me curious!
