It's a Boy!


Meet Oliver, or Ollie as we now call him.
He is the new member of our family at Missing Goat Farm.


Santa brought him early.
Actually, Santa gets enough credit... Mrs Claus did.
He's ten weeks old.  
He's a labradoodle - heavy on the lab, less on the doodle.


Wee girl has a new best friend.  
He's much easier to cuddle than the chickens.
She'd love him even more if he would wear the  princess crown instead of eating it.


But she forgives him.

oh! puppy love. His little eyes. My niece dresses up her dog by putting hair clips on her (the dog, called Rosie, a weimarana)ears! Ollie will bring so much love to your home. Hope he will be friendly with the chookies! Jane x

Heather! Thanks so much for the lovely pics of Ollie!

It looks like he enjoys being in front of the camera. I will be sure to show Sterling - I know he will enjoy seeing them.
Cheers, from Noelle at Red Barn Labradoodles.

What a handsome dog, that Oliver is. Puppies are the best.... except when it comes to training. LOL. It's all so, so worth it though.

It's nice that they will grow up together. Both will learn a lot from each other. And, it would be so awesome to see Oliver hanging out with the chickens! I'm hoping to see a lot of cute pictures. I mean, LOTS :)

OMGosh...isn't he adorable! Gotta love those "goldens"! They make the best pets! Kim

Old Road Primitives said...

Oops, sorry about that!!! I missed the "labradoodle" part! He looks just like our "golden" when she was little! I can't wait to see what he looks like as he gets older! Kim

Tee of Vinnord Cottage said...

a labradoodle! I love them.... howcome he is heavy on the lab? Is he not a 50/50 mix then?
Whatever, he is super cute!!!

Amélie said...

Your puppie is adorable! Please be patient as he gets stronger and bigger. I have two golden retriever (sisters), they will be two years old in april but still chew the furniture if I´m not around! They just need space to run and some rules. The love you´ll get from Ollie every single day will be priceless! Congrats!

Perfect.
