Lusi is our new "daughter." She's a 17-week-old Labradoodle who we got from a rescue group. And she's lovely!

They say she's gonna be 50-70 lbs (23-30 kg).

So, why did you spell her name like that?

Congrats. That is one good looking looking pup.

Go dogs!

My family has a seven year old Golden doodle-they're great dogs (although the poodle intellect can make your life difficult).

These are unusual dogs to find in a rescue group...what's her story?

Because I'm bilingual, it's important that the name be pronounced the same in English and Spanish. Because I speak Iberian Spanish, "Lucy" would be pronounced "Luthie."

Story is she was bred by an amateur and given as a gift to his first owner, a military wife who had a baby with a surprise major heart defect in need of multiple operations. It was too much to have a puppy at home and she was locked out back all the time. So she surrendered her to a rescue group. Her loss... our gain!

Here's the shocking bit: She's CALM. She's well-mannered. She's gentle. She's housebroken and crate-trained. I expected a 17week labradoodle puppy to have sixteen paws all moving in different directions at all waking moments. She's totally not like that. She needs to be taught some basic manners but overall she's absolutely lovely!

We already have a Poodle/Shiba-Inu mix named Paco, but we should have named him Paco. ZOMG is he a smart dog. And, as I explain to my friends, I'm not proud of the fact that he's smart. He's annoying as hell. If there's a way out of a confinement, he'll find it. Even knows deceit. A few weeks ago, I heard him sneaking out of our bedroom to go downstairs and root around for a snack. I sat bolt upright in bed: "Paco!" He immediately went into a stretch and an itch as if to say, "What, Daddy? I just wandered over to the door for a stretch and a scratch..."

This is Paco.

More Paco

Although I grew up having dogs , this and the hair are the reasons why I simply cannot have dogs inside the house. Having a big garden for them helped. Two months away from home and already miss my dog.

Congrats on the new pup. Our neighbors have a Labradoodle that could be Lusi's twin and your description of the sixteen pawed pup is accurate for this particular dog. What a handful she is! Watching her romp around the yard reminds me of the Boxers my grandparents always had.

After we got Paco from a rescue group, we were convinced: no breeders. There are enough dogs in the world. Every dog that gets adopted from rescue groups is another dog that didn't get put down in a shelter.

So please, no breeders. Even that sought-after designer dog you want is out there if you're patient.

Indeed they don't. They don't go around humping every cushion or leg they see.

Cats are affectionate ... when it suits them or when it is to their advantage.

Ours don't.

No breeders here either. Our moggies are well taken care of in that department. It wouldn't be fair on a dog if we were to get one now because we both work fulltime. Should we decide to get a dog - if and when I retire - then it'll be one of those cute mutts from the rescue with those big brown eyes and devoid of balls or plumbing.

BTW, Lusi is gorgeous.

It's cruel to leaves dogs outside all the time they are social pack animals. If you can't tolerate the fur or rare accident don't get a dog.

I am not talking about poodles. I had pointers and we now have a Russian Shepperd. Not exactly the breeds of dogs that would fit in a house. And cruel? You're overreacting, it is more cruel for me to have a dog confined in a closed space than having him/her enjoy a big outdoors garden.
