Casey is a goldendoodle, born December 1, 2010. He has his own facebook page and flickr set and a small, but devoted following. He went to Ahimsa puppy school, but his continuing education is in the life experiences he finds at events around the city--fairs, farmers markets, festivals, doodle romps, dog parks, and Norm's Eatery and Ale House (where he learned his public table manners). He goes everywhere with me, including work, where he sleeps under my desk. He occasionally reports on city events and writes informative articles on dog joy (and care) on his facebook page. At seven months old, he weighs 65 lbs. He got his hair cut recently, more from diplomacy (a gift certificate from a friend) than desire. He swears he'll never get it cut again, prefers shaggy, feathery locks to shorn, and loves the daily grooming time with me, his goddess. Together, we stride confidently through our daily city life. We are a team forever.
