I feel this may be a perfect match for the "out there" names thread.

Oooo! I like luna .
Aurora

My IL's have a black female lab. Her name is Ebony. They call her Ebby most of the time. Super cute.

My dog is Izzy, but I wanted to call her Rizzo and I feel like that works for any fluffy dog with a bit of personality (i didnt go through with it as my cousins got a dog the week before and called it Sandy... and then it would be like a grease reunion lol).
I also like the idea of searching the 'out there' names thread for ideas.

Puppy mill product.

Get your mum a pure bred poodle instead.

Otherwise Mutley, because she is a Mut.

Jasper or Ivory were the first 2 that sprung to mind. Hope she enjoys her new bundle :wub:

But a very expensive mut.

Given I’m currently looking after an ex puppy mill b**ch; I’m very disappointed that people are still buying them.

Why a Labradoodle, OP? There are so many lovely dogs out there that aren’t subjected to puppy milling.

Aww I came into read this thinking it would be fun and uplifting hearing all the cute dog names.

I love Rizzo and Luna.

Winter, Frost or Zuri. They all mean white, which goes with my twisted sense of humour

Yes, lets just think about the cute and ignore the reality of weird crossbred puppy mill dogs.

Hi Kaboodle,
She looked into dogs from the rspca, lost dogs and rehousing. Many of the dogs were large breeds / large breed mixed. I dare say really cute when puppies.

Long story short, she didn’t want a really large, young dog, or a really tiny terrier type, that seemed to be the options when looking. She is 5ft nothing, so I can understand her not wanting to retrain a large dog.

DH, and I looked online, too, but either, not what she was looking for, or already taken.

Then yesterday, got the update that she had organised the Labradoodle.

Apparently one of her neighbours used to train dogs for a living with one of the armed forces, so, on the upside, it will be trained well.

That said, I grew up with hienz 57 mutts, and would again in the future.

By the by, not sure of the point of sniping about the puppy mills. It’s a thread for naming a dog.

Feel free to start a new thread in venting about puppy mills versus having a free kick at someone who hasn’t and won’t buy from a puppy mill.

I’m not having a free kick. I’m at the coalface and weary of people’s deliberate ignorance.

Hi Kaboodle, please accept my apologies. Without people like yourself, so many more dogs would suffer.

Long story short, for other posters, I haven’t purchased the puppy. I am not my mother in-law. I don’t know her specific thoughts, beliefs, her research or lack there of.

Who knew that a fluffy thread about naming a dog, would turn so prickly.

I think ebony or Luna are lovely

I gave my parents all the links, research etc and they still bought a labradoodle, I was very blunt and rude about it but they didn’t listen and insist theirs is different and wasn’t a puppy mill, I just had to accept they weren’t going to listen, sometimes there’s nothing else you can do OP. I too am grateful for the work kadoodle and spiked and others do

All threads discussing cross breeds especially "oodles" go the same way, with good reason. Regardless the point of the thread people will point out that it is the product of a BYB or puppy farm. It's a serious problem and people keep pouring thousands of dollars into them. Many people are understandably against it, myself included.
