Laurelin, All very good points and no offense taken. I am going to look into that...I got the name of our breeder from someone in a local doodle club....and have only done phone as well as snail mail contact with her and one personal visit. I will ask her if she is a member of the breed clubs. As far as why she began... she only told me that she had many requests from people and at fist she refused... but then she decided that people were going to get them from back yard breeders anyway and decided to provide people with a doodle that comes from quality stock... I never even thought to ask if she was forbidden to do it by any of the registries... Im now very curious as well.
