Just over a week ago on Sunday 21st April and I was busy getting Sunday dinner ready the phone started ringing. Now if I'm busy and I don't instantly recognise the number I tend not to pick up and consider they will ring again at a more conveniant time but as my son retrieved the phone to me in the kitchen and I looked at the number a mobile number that didn't ring a bell, I over rode my first instinct to not answer it, as it seemed to be ringing more urgently. I'm glad I did as it was Toni with news that Poppy had popped and produced 3 pups very easily. Poppy is a Cavapoo I bred and Toni came back a few months ago and used our Miniature Poodle Reggie, so Reggie is the Dad of these little tubs. Toni's family will be keeping one of the pups and the other two are already spoken for. Congratulations to the two families who will have the other two pups, who had both contacted me and thankfully Toni has been able to help you. I know with Toni rearing them, they won't need for any thing.
Toni sent me these cute photo's of Poppy and pups yesterday at a week old. Just looking at these photos have made me feel broody. Lol
Thanks Toni for the photo's and you are going to have such fun in the coming weeks with your little tubby wards.
just thought I'd email you a few pics of the puppies and let you know they are doing really well, poppy is a natural mum and is doing a great job!.
Nearly forgot this photo sent to me a week ago of Archie meeting paragliders for the first time. Thanks Angie for this and the bit about the lady arguing the toss about Archie being a Cockapoo not a Cavapoo. When the mum is a bigger type Cavalier like his mum Smudge crossed with the Miniature Poodle which is the middle size Poodle of the breeds of Poodle, you will get a similar size and look to a Cockapoo but if you really know your dog breeds you can tell the difference, as the Cavapoo will have a bit more of a prettier head with larger eyes than the Cockapoo. Archie is one of the pups from Smudge's amazing first litter of nine Cavapoos who's Birthday was this last Saturday 27th April. Hope you had a great day Archie and the same goes to all your siblings.
Archie hopefully will be staying with us for a couple weeks in August. I'm looking forward to catching up with all that he's been up to and the dog he has become.
We are so chuffed that Archie will be spending time with you- we can relax knowing he's at his first home!
It was funny yesterday , when we were walking the cliffs at Beer. One lady with a dog asked us what breed Archie was and then disagreed that he wasn't a cavapoo but a cockerpoo! She was a right old grump! Apart from that Archie had a good fuss made of him from other walkers and was then scared of the paragliders who had taken off over his head! Must have looked like a giant bird to him!! He ignored a huge group of rabbits and slept for the rest of the day when we got home!
Hope you all had a great weekend and will keep you updated with Archie!
