    This surprised me...

    Labradoodle 'creator' regrets his decision - News Hound | Dog Time - Dog Blog Network

    "Wally Conran, 81, who crossed a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle in 1988 and then coined the term "Labradoodle," wishes he'd never done it. He originally bred the two dogs after receiving a letter from a woman in Hawaii who was looking for a seeing-eye dog for her husband, who had allergies.

    "But now when people ask me, ‘Did you breed the first one?' I have to say, ‘Yes, I did, but it's not something I'm proud of,'" he said. "I wish I could turn the clock back."

    It's like he's the poor bloke who opened the lid of Pandora's Box.

    I can see why he would regret it...
