8 Photos of Happiness

I have been recently nominated by My GBGV Life, Confessions of a Rescue Mom, and Carma Poodale to participate in the 8 Photos of Happiness event. This event was started by Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet. The rules are simple: Thank your nominator/s and link them in your post. Link the creator, Ariel’s little corner of the internet. Post your 8 photos of happiness – the photos can be anything that represents a moment, object, place or feeling that makes you happy. Pop in a brief description of the photo, why you chose it or let the photos do the talking! Spread the happiness and tag up to ten other bloggers! So lets get started!
I use this picture is to educate people about the Goldendoodle breed. The biggest misconception people have about Goldendoodles is they don’t shed. When I tell people that Goldendoodles can shed and some shed a lot people are taken back. I come from a liter of 9, half of us don’t shed (including myself) and the other half sheds a lot. I’m considered a First Generation (F1) Goldendoodle, meaning one of my parents are 100% Golden Retriever (my mom) and the other parent is a 100% Standard Poodle (dad). F1 doodles split the attributes of their parents 50:50. So F1 Goldendoodles can either shed a lot, lightly or not at all. 

To learn more about the Goldendoodle breed here is the link.

Being a rescue dog I love to give back to rescue organizations and humane societies. This photo is one of my hauls I’ve made to a shelter. Since starting blogging almost two years ago I’m happy to say I’ve been able to donate over $500 to my two favorite organizations.

Being from Minnesota I had to share one of my favorite winter photo. If you look closely you can see my breath in this picture. Boy, I sure love the snow!
Every time I go to the farm I’m happy. There is so much to do, like run around endlessly, smell the great smells, and roll in the grass.

I love to get all dressed up and make people smile!
My absolute favorite past time is to play fetch. Some may say I’m even obsessed!

Again, educating people on the importance to rescuing and supporting these organizations is so important to me.

Finally, this last picture, even though you can’t see out faces, you can tell we are one big, happy family! People may have a disability, either physical or mental, but dogs look past those differences and love you for the person you truly are.

Now time for the nominations. I’m not sure who hasn’t been nominated, please let me know if you haven’t. I would love to nominate you!

This was a so much fun going through my loads of photos to narrow it down to just 8 pictures. Hope you make happy moments throughout your day.

    Great photos Spencer! All those facts sound very familiar to us poodles (except the one about shedding)!

      It is amazing how many people think Goldendoodle's don't shed because we come from a poodle.

    I think these 8 Photos of Happiness posts are wonderful. I enjoy seeing each and every one. Every blog has a slightly different take on the "happiness" theme and all of them make me very happy. Thank you for sharing, and especially at the end the reminder that dogs love us no matter what, all day every day.
