We've just had a lovely update on Ellie and Tandy, retired mummy's to some of our Cockapoo puppies.  To check out the other retirement stories click Life After JD.

Ellie left Sept '10
Ellie went to a young couple in Falmouth. They were so happy with her that they came back and took her kennel mate Tandy, just 5 months later so they are reunited.
Tandy left Feb '11

(E-mail we received 19 Nov 2013)
Hello, I stumbled across your website and though you might like a little update on Ellie and Tandy. They are both still very well and very active. They absolutely love the beach, their food and cuddles! They came to our wedding in 2012 and are loved by everybody they meet. They do also love their home comforts and in the house are usually found snuggled up on their chair! We are moving house next month and will have an even bigger garden for them and will be just 10 minutes from the beach! We have a new addition to the family ( human kind!) and they have has perfect manners and adapted to having a baby in the house really well.  I have attached some pictures.

Ella and Inca show us how it's done.

Last Saturday we took Yogi, Woody III and Inca to the All About Dogs Show in Newark. Like always we spent lots of time talking to people who asked us about our lovely dogs. It was in the fun dog show that the competition kicked off between us but it was Ella and Inca who showed Stephen and I how it was done by winning The Cutest Crossbred class. Not to miss out on an opportunity we all tried out a prototype of the new TC Loop Lead and Collar, check out ella and Inca both sporting the monochrome look.  The TC Loop Leads that adjust to clip around your waist leaving hands free for extra large hotdogs, got a fair amount of admiration at lunchtime too.

Bumble the Superdog

Hubby took Bumble for his afternoon walk to the park this afternoon and came back bursting with pride.

Apparantly they were walking along approaching a wooded crossing and could see up ahead a mother and child.  The child was quite obviously autistic or disabled in some way.  Then suddenly from nowhere came a snarling, growling Schnauzer dog without it's owner which confronted the child and mother, pinning the child to a tree and really frightening them, causing the child to scream and burst into tears.

Bumble spotted the child's distress immediately and leapt into action, bumbling into the situation with his usual gusto, and completely separated the dog from the child, distracting the dog away from the child completely. The dog then turned on Bumble quite nastily but he just ran a safe distance away and stayed safe.  Thankfully the dogs owner then appeared, got the dog under control and walked off.

The child continued to be quite upset.  But Bumble who can be full on at the best of times, seemed to understand, and he stood really quietly with the child, wagging his tail gently, trying to comfort him while hubby chatted with the mother.  By the end of it, the child had got his confidence again completely and hubby said it brought a tear to his eye, watching the child and Bumble playing and rolling on the ground together, with the child hugging Bumble, laughing and giggling while Bumble continuing to be really gentle.

These poos really do seem to have a sixth sense about situations and emotions.  Our boy is really growing up  :star:  :star:

CCGB Rescue, Re-homing and Respite

I am very proud of Stephen for all the hard work and care he has put into the CCGB rehoming side. In the last few weeks he has successfully found new forever homes for 5 Cockapoos in need. I'm amazed at how many lovely people are willing to offer homes, the club has had more than 480 on-line applications. Our house has felt, lets say rather full for a while but the end result is very heart warming.


...and her brother Scooby
