One user claimed: “Doodles are literally the sweetest and best dogs ever.”
Another added: “Our doodle is literally one of the best dogs I’ve ever had. As long as you actually take care of them they are literally the sweetest dogs ever.”
Others agreed that the owners were to blame for their dogs’ rambunctiousness.
One said: “Doodle owners are the kind of parents who’d say ‘oh, he’d NEVER! He is the sweetest kid!’ In response to their child punching a classmate.”
