Hello Everyone! I’m so excited to share my adventure from last Saturday!!! If you follow me on social media you have already seen the picture!
Last week, on Facebook, my mom was looking through upcoming dog events. While she was looking, she saw “Pups on the Patio” event located west of the Twin Cities. This event sounded fun, but she didn’t know if the hour plus drive was worth it. Then she saw Christopher Cline and his famous Goldendoodle, Juji, were going to be there and before I knew it she hit the attending/going button. How could we pass up an opportunity to finally meet Chris and his “Larger Than Life” Goldendoodle. I knew they were from Minnesota and have wanting to meet them for sometime but the opportunity finally presented itself! By the way, this was on my bucket list to meet these two!
Christopher Cline is a great photographer where he creates images that he photo shops Juji to be 7 feet tall. That is where Juji gets the nickname, “Larger Than Life” dog.
Then, I found out my pal, Harmony, and her mom were going and it was a done deal! I haven’t seen her since our Itasca trip but have stayed in contact with them throughout the years.
We met up in the parking lot and arrived at the event together. As we were making our way to the patio on a beautiful golf course we saw him, Juji!
As we made our way closer, mom’s smile continued to get bigger and bigger. Juji, was a beautiful, spunky Goldnedoodle, who ironically was bigger then I imagined. He weighs in at 100 pounds of pure fluff! After introducing ourselves my mom needed a picture! They both were so friendly and welcoming, it was like I was hanging out with a longtime pal!
As we made our way into the event, I met Cooper, a gorgeous doodle mix (I totally forgot what he was mixed with 🙁 )! Isn’t he handsome!
It was time to get down to the grass and take a group shot! We were only planning on staying for an hour but before we knew it, 3 hours passed! We said our goodbyes and made our way home!
While we were at the event, I purchased Chris and Juji’s 2018 Bow-Wow calendar, where Chris signed it saying, “Spencer – So nice to meet you today. Chris & Juji.”
Like I said before, I can now check this meet up off my bucket list! The next thing on my list is to have Chris create a custom photo-shopped image of me!!!
