Hurrah Buddy's had his last jab and we only have to wait a week until he can go out for walks (thats if he walks at the moment he just sits and chews the lead!)

Had his ears checked and he has a few mites in one so ive got some ear drops,asked about his loose stools could i be over feeding he said yea but we came to conculsion its all the rabbit and bird poo he keeps eating !!!! Naughty Buddy!

Think he said he weighed 5.5kg on his scales ,also got some worming tablets that you can only get on prescription he said its good to c keep changing what you use so they dont build up a resistance.

Asked about BARF diet he wasnt keen but when i told him NI did it all for you he thought yes that was good (did say the other vet was in favour of barf,so think its just a vets personal preference) He wasnt keen on giving raw bones though.

I bet he cant wait to go again when he can walk on the ground he was going crazy in my arms coz of all the smells.

i bet you can't wait to take Buddy out walking!! Again the weight makes me realise how little my Betty is as she is only 5kg fully grown at 16months!

George had a couple of ear mites and he's got drops, wow what a big boy Buddy is! George has been able to go out since Monday and we were worried about the biting lead issue but he hardly does it when he's out and about, too much else going on:D

i live in a flat so when i take Betty out for a final wee at night or first one in the morning i go out in a right state! usually in the morning its the vest an shorts i've slept in with first pair of trousers to hand and a hoodie. i often put sunglasses on as my eyes are hardly open!! Luckily Betty is usually quick so we are out and in quickly. i still worry that people i know will see me!!!!

I had a good giggle about this thread as well. Thank you :)
Are you sure Buddy is 5.5kg? Cider was 1.6kg with 8 weeks and is 4kg now with being 15 weeks old. I might have a midget maybe???

`Good luck with the chewable tablets. They are meant to be 'chewy treats' that your dog will just eat - but Poppy has a lick then spits them out! Had to cut them into 4 and cover with cream cheese and ham to get her to take them :eek:

Just weighed Daisy and she is still only 2kg - I've got a dinky one!

Thanks will try that if i have a problem but Buddy likes his food (as you can tell) so im sure he'll eat them.
Which type of cocker was the mum to your cockapoo? im sure show cockers are smaller?? though JD did have some small working cockers (molly)

Hi Donna - yes, both my girls are from 'show cockers', with the same dad. However, Poppy is on the large side (5 months and over 9kg), whereas Daisy is a dot! Just shows the differences in Cockapoo sizes, but has worked out well, as I wanted a smaller second one but didnt really want an American.
