We don't do- doodles!!!

|Well, as the lab, now poodle person mentioned above, I find my labs much more happy to go with anyone, anytime as compared to my poodles who are more Momma's kids. They LOVE everyone but prefer to stay with me while those labs will go home with anyone.
Otherwise, my labs have always been dogs who will do ANYTHING outside but are laid back and calm in my house, much the same as most spoos I know. I just find the "extra" size of the spoos a bit too much. The labs may outweigh them but are not able to clean off the table by just leaning their head on it like those spoos who stand 26 to 28 inches at the withers.
We groom a 14 year old spoo and have since he was a baby. He STILL removes EVERYTHING off our counters when he comes in, something most labs have never done!!
As for the reasoning behind breeding labs to spoos...I never could figure out WHY that was done...a spoo is very much a lab with a curly coat and longer legs, IMO, and I have no idea what was gained by breeding them together.
