When my husband and I got married almost 7 years ago (!), my parents gave us one of the most wonderful gifts I’ve ever received — our sweet little Sammie.
Jesse and I had chosen a cock-a-poo because of my allergies (yay poodle fur!) and Jesse’s refusal to own a poodle. A week after our wedding, we drove from Durham, NC down to southwest Georgia to pick Sammie up from her breeder. At that time, we had never heard the term “designer dog,” and we were completely unprepared when we moved to Wood Acres, MD to discover that cockapoos are pretty much the dog of choice, at least in that part of Bethseda. Here’s our nearly 7 year old cock-a-poo, Samantha, usually called “Sammie”, but currently known affectionately as “Sah-eeeeeee” by 19 mos old Goosie girl.
