The two Cavapoos below I have received updates for are full siblings, but not litter siblings. Darcey is from Dolly's last ever litter born June 2013 and Bella is from the litter before born near the end of 2011. Reggie is Dad to both of them and Bella is from Reggie's first ever litter.
The first update is from Karen, who has Darcey and now also has a little canine friend for Darcey called Milo.
"Hi Jane and all at Pound lane
After much thought and research we have got a little toy poodle called Milo, as you can see Darcey thinks he is the best thing since sliced bread! Milo also hails from Devon this time from Ilfracombe.
He has been a great addition and is almost as sociable as Darcey, his toilet training has been a bit more trying but we just followed the book you recommended - The Perfect Puppy and he's getting there.
Today we took them both to Brighton and it rained heavily so Milo whined the whole time, he is not as Bear Grylls like as Darcey!
Hope you are all well, I am looking forward to my first art show which I am convinced would not have happened without Darcey building my confidence. I best go and feed the 'poo crew as they are called in our house.
Karen, Neil, Carys and the 'poo crew xx"
Thanks Karen for the lovely update and great to hear about the arrival of Milo in Darcey's life. You are so going to enjoy watching the two of them together. Good to hear from you and wish you every success with your first art show.
The next update is for Darcey's sister Bella from Margaret.
we all love Bella more than anyone can say. She is the topic of conversation with friends and loved ones and I don't know why - adores, loves children (may have something to do with your wonderful training with your six beautiful children).
Her intelligence is astounding and we understand her language and she under-stands a lot of what we say and how we say it. She still prefers people and children to other dogs apart from her boy friend a grey miniature poodle and any cavalier King Charles spaniel she sees. How does she know she is half of one.
Bella is predictable and continues to be at nearly four a very special member of our family. I thank the day I found your website
Kind Regards to your family and all the gang. I still read your blog and drool over the puppy videos and photos.

Thanks Margaret for the lovely update for Bella. I know you so love Bella and that she is such a special member of your family. Great to hear from you.
