Stupid Desigener Doodle dogs..

Recommended Posts

I swear if I hear another doodle I'm going to cry!! I was getting dog food for Sassy at the vets office. I get handed my bill, and what does the breed line say??? Goldendoodle :x :x I'm like did you give me the wrong bill or did Sassy change breeds on me.. I was utterly pissed off.. I can't believe the vets offices use those bloody idiotic names.. Why couldn't it said Golden mix or poodle mix :evil: I don't know why it just pissed me off..

If I worked in a vet's office, or some place where you had to list a dog's breed, I would NEVER put anything-doodle. I would put Poodle mix or Golden mix, or whatever. I would refuse to acknowledge the doodle!

I'm guilty of changing charts in our clinic. I sometimes scratch out "poo" or "doodle" and put the proper mix (Cocker Spaniel/Poodle mix, etc.) instead. I'm not even an employee, but it's a pet peeve of mine. I'm going to h*ll for it, I just know. :oops:

One time when I had just dropped Jackie and Maya off at the kennel, someone brought in her mutt, and when they asked what breed, she said "Australian Labradoodle." I had to keep from laughing out loud.

No comment on the doodle business (makes me too mad),

but our vet did give me someone else's bill last time, they said "oh and you have a prior balance of $42 for Sissy's spaying," no, we don't have a Sissy. She then says "are you sure?!" :lol:

[quote name='CoalSky']I thought Sassy was a Pei mix.... so you DID get the wrong bill? :lol: :lol: you really confused me :lol:

I had no idea any vets office would do that... that's just insane! You'd think that actual dog people would know better :lol: :roll:

HF, I think that's awesome you change them :lol: Has anyone said anything to you about it?[/quote]

Well they got a new client, named Sassy :P and when they added breed, they put it to the wrong Sassy.. Yes Sassy is totally not a desinger dog. Unless a labrapei is a new one?

I was thinking that all of us mixed breed dog owners should make up fancy names for our mutts so we could feel all important too.

"Yeah, this is a purebreed Beagalab. Very rare. Can you believe I got him at the local shelter? Gets along great with my Labrashepherd."

I like this! We already came up with one for Buddy, he's a Bassador, a rare hound retriever!

The grooming salons at Petsmart go by AKC breeds. Had a lady come in the other day with a pure Golden and a 4 month old Goldendoodle puppy. The golden's daughter. I put her in as a Golden Retriever mix, and when the lady went to sign the papers, she totally flipped. "Faith isn't a Golden Retriever mix, she's a Goldendoodle." I kind of glanced at the mom, the baby, then the owner, and I politely but firmly informed the woman that we go by AKC breeds. Oooohhh, the look I got from her. It only got worse when she said "oh, not CKC breeds?" and I cheerfully responded, "Nope!" Grrrr.... Oh, she wanted to kill me, and I didn't even make any snotty comments about her dog or the CKC.

The whole "my hybrid isn't a mix" thing is irritating enough, but when you've got a Golden Retriever you've obviously MIXED with a Poodle to get this puppy, don't tell me your puppy isn't a MIX, because it is.

Nope, not so far. When scheduling my own clients, I also never use the cutesy names. I always say Poodle mix or Cocker mix or whatever mix is applicable.

On a kinda sorta related note... people call our clinic all the time asking about specific breeds of dogs with the intention of purchasing. Our receptionist used to direct them toward the different breeders of whatever breed they were looking for. She has now started directing them to Petfinder. She never does breeder referrals anymore. Go, Joanie! She was probably tired of hearing me bitch.

I call Maya my Goldsky (Golden/Husky mix).

I don't know what Pooh Bear is mixed with.

Jackie (assuming she's Golden/Collie/German Shepherd) could be a Goldencolliekraut.

[quote name='Ravyn']Red would be a Border Spaniel, or a Brittany Collie, I guess.

And while I'd love to have a million like her, I'd hate to have a million like her, if you catch my meaning :)[/quote]

I know exactly what you mean. Whatever mix Jackie is, it's the absolutely PERFECT mix, but I certainly wouldn't try to recreate it!

"A Jug"the lady said. "A what?" "A Jug", the woman and her husband said in unison this time. I said "what's that a mix of?" I asked, and she says "Jack Russell and Pug" "oh" i said and I filled out her reciept as JRT/Pug MIX :lol: :lol:

Hehee... :lol:
I love this trhead. ;)

Although I hate these poo and oodle mix things.
I've even had a question once. A lady told me she's allergic to dogs but was wondering (as I am allergic too) if I knew where to get a Labradoodle. I was like: :o "It's a Labrador+Poodle mix..."
She was convinced that it was a new breed. :-?

I feel SO sad for these people who fall for this. Although... I must say... It would be fun to have a bichon+crested mix. :lol: (best of both breeds)
But *IF* I would get one (and I'm not saying I am) it wouldn't bee a Bichted. :lol:

The doodle thing really urks me too and i don't really know why, i do love all dogs but put poo or doodle on the end and it just seems silly.

i was looking up dog breeds the other day to get some reference photo's and came across a huge list along with a tonne of doodles that you couldn't click on yet....the one that really annoyed me was the saint berdoodle....i love saint bernards and can't even begin to imagine why they would want to make a saint berdoodle??

I think that the Golden Retriever/poodle mutt (I WON'T use the "doodle" term for it) is cute, and would adopt one from a shelter if I was in the position to adopt again, but I would NEVER EVER EVER buy one!
