Ingrid turns two

Ingrid the labradoodle explores art in Oak lawn, Dallas.

I sometimes tell people that my labradoodle is still a puppy. She acts like a puppy — hyper, uncontrollably excitable, and easily fooled. But I just realized today that Ingrid is already two years old.

I got Ingrid back in October 2015 (how time flies!) and she’s been tumbling around my apartments ever since. What a quick two years.

Ingrid has been all over Dallas — sometimes on 15 mile walks. Our only road trip so far was a muggy excursion to Austin last year (in which she puked all over my car) but she’s pretty-much stayed in Dallas-proper the rest of the time.

We are still working on getting Ingrid better socialized around dogs and people. But she’s pretty much a happy, non-aggressive dog that won’t crap in the house and has only peed on a house guest once.

That’s pretty good for age two.
