This guy is a destructive monster! We've already lost a rug and a fur overthrow that was passed down to my fiancee.

Forgot to mention, posting regular pictures will also help them learn faster. ;)
Ask and you shall receive! I could do this all day lol...



Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.






He used to refuse to go down the stairs, now he bounds down them without fear. Here he is contemplating.
He defecated on a rug RIGHT after this shot.

Subscribed for cute puppy updates.

Has he mastered the stairs?
When we first brought him home Friday night, he very cautiously walked up the stairs after a little encouragement. Friday night and Saturday he refused to go down the stairs, and would whimper and look down them from the top. To be fair, our stairs are floating and pretty open, and even I am afraid for him falling, especially if he were to fall from the top floor, to the middle, and then all the way down to the bottom..............ugh, I shudder just thinking about it. He bounds up and down the stairs without fear now; it's actually pretty entertaining watching his little body hop up the stairs; he'll put his front two paws on the stair ahead of him, and then do a little leap.

Please share a video of your sweet pup tackling the stair challenge.

Has the shredded newspaper looking rug survived? I would imagine most pups would find it irresistible to destroy.
It did not survive between his chewing and thinking it was a great place to use the restroom :( My fiancee warned me that we should put it away before he arrived, but I was stubborn and insisted that it would be fine.

.But I'm black though..........and my fiancee is half Peruvian.



Beautiful pup. Would love a dog but my bf and I both work full time so it ain’t gonna happen.
We both work full time, but my fiancee owns her own law firm so she just takes him in with her; when she can't we leave him at a neighbor's house. There is no way I could bring him into my office.

I don't believe you, what was the topic at the last meeting.

Mini goldendoodle sounds like the perfect breed. I have a Boston Terrier and a French bulldog. They’re perfect for apartments but my frenchie sheds a lot. I would love to get a Golden but the shedding is a turnoff. The poodle mix is appealing.

We had a stair scare this morning. He was coming down the third floor stairs and I was going up them. When we met he turned around to follow me up, and his little body slipped through! He was able to grab with his front paws and hold onto the stair while the rest of his body hung in the air. Thankfully I was able to grab him and pull him up...........he seemed unfazed by the entire event lol. This is my biggest fear though; I'd imagine him slipping through the stairs would be fatal.

do you let him sleep in bed with you? because you should
No, right now we crate him at night in our bedroom. Maybe when the little hobag is better trained, but I don't trust him on furniture at the moment.

Will you eventually let him post on here?
He already has been!

You should attach something to the underside of the stairs to prevent this or stop him from using the stairs until he's too big to fall through :(

I'd like to know too. We had a mini red poodle. She was a terrible dog. But compared to her hair against our dog fur: yeah the shedding is crazy.

And that color too. Phew. Get ready to be stopped by everyone. Everyday. :p

Yeah I think I'm going to talk to my fiancee about putting some temp. backs to our stairs. The little guy just runs up and down them with reckless abandon, and I've seen him slide on them several times. It would be a bad fall man. He could fall from the third floor, hit the stairs on the second floor, fall through them, and then smack into the polished concrete bottom floor...aghhh.

I know that he's still small, but so far shedding has not been an issue at all. Haha, yeah we get stopped everywhere. I was walking him alone the other evening and a van full of women stopped in the middle of the road to ask about him lol. If I was single I wouldn't be single long with this little furball.

Why Wolly instead of Wally, if it’s pronounced Wally?
Great question, but what has been done, cannot be undone.
