Living Streams Labradoodles & Goldendoodles

Dear Jodi,

As you may well know I have recently received a  golden doodle puppy from Angela.  I want to take a minute to thank you first for connecting  me with Angela.  What blessing she has been!!!!

When I first decide to get a new dog I pretty much knew what I wanted but was unsure of how to go about finding a golden or labradoodle.  I started visiting many different websites and began emailing each one with  questions. Most of the answer  were the same but  I was attracted to yours site simple by the testimony that it represents, one that honors God. After emailing you and requesting an opportunity to visit, you had me make arrange with Angela as there was a conflicting our scheduling.

It was a great meeting, we enjoyed seeing Maggie and Noel and visiting with Angela. At that point Maggie was taking her time coming into heat.  Angela continued to email me with updates. Once Maggie became pregnant Angela continued with information regarding Maggie's progression.  It was comforting to know that she had not forgotten about us.

It was an exciting day to get that email that Maggie had finally delivered her puppies.  We continued to be blessed with tons of emails with pictures of the newborns as the grew into puppyhood.  It was so much fun to see a new email from Angela, it was always the first one that I opened. They always made me smile and gave me a sense of knowing my future pup.

I was very impressed when Angela emailed me that temperament testing was going to take place.  I had no idea what that was as in the past I have always just picked the cutest pup out of the litter.  She encouraged me to read "The Art of Raising a Puppy" which I have and have learned a lot.

Once the temperament test was done, Angela contacted me with what she thought was the best choice for me. I understand that you help her with testing and the decision making process.  I could not be more pleased with the pup.  She is perfect.  She has such a sweet personality and just a gentle nature about her.  I am amazed and grateful for your experience in breeding such outstanding dogs.

I again want to thank you for not only raising such quality dogs but having people such as Angela part of your guardian program. She is such an encouragement and delight to talk with, I have enjoyed her so much.  It makes me a little sad to know that I won't be getting any more of those delightful emails with puppy pictures but maybe I can return the favor to her and send her pictures of my new family member.

I will be forwarding a copy of this email to Angela as I want her to know what a wonderful experience she has made this for me.

Many Blessings to all of you,
