Golden doodle or starfish?

Snoopy is a golden doodle who lives with Adam Donaldson, associate dean (scholarship, curriculum and programs) with the Faculty of Graduate Studies.

Name: Snoopy — because there are peanuts fans in the house but dad wouldn't get a beagle.

Nickname: Snoop

Species/breed: Golden doodle, although we are suspicious there may be part starfish in there somewhere!

Age: 2

Fave food: Any kind of treat ... doesn't matter what it is.

Special tricks: Master distractor. Hand bump while typing. Guilt trip sad eyes staring into your soul.  But the best one is that he grabs a blanket out of a box we have by the TV, drags on top of the couch, and lies down on it ... still working on training him to bring it back.

Best quality: He is one GIANT ball of affection and has really helped to bring new energy into our older dog Molly. 

Social media platform or handle, if available: Too busy for social media ... someone has to hold the couch down.
