I'm fascinated by the range of colours and looks of cockapoos based on what the mums and dads look like. It would be great to see pics if you have them.

These are mine:

Flo's mum English Working Lemon Roan Cocker


Flo's dad Miniature Apricot Poodle


Puppies


How Flo looks now. I think Flo has her mums ears and eyes :D

That's interesting - so looks like with a blue roan mum puppies colour is influenced by dad as black dad produced a black pup and white dad let mums roan colouring come through. What were Mabel's brothers and sisters like? OMG now I've found this forum I'm becoming completely obsessed with cockapoos :eek:

Really surprised at Delta's colour and markings given her mum and dad's colouring. Gypsy's mum is gorgeous.

Obviously not an expert but appears to be that you get solid or with tux pups with solid coloured poodles unless they carry the parti gene or are parti coloured themselves... may not be true thats just what I ve noticed as I ve searched for Mabel. Seems to be alot more parti colours available at the moment. When i approached one breeder they said blue roans did nt exist as a cockerpoo ( but id seen Alfie!!! ) I did nt reply but we know better !!! There we 're three black with white markings and three white with black. I know one stayed white with black Mabels turned blue roan not sure about the third x

its not so much about the colour of the mum and dad its the colour they carry in their gens. like both my pairents were dark haired. but myself and my brother were platium bond, turnd out my dad was blond as a child, so he carrys the blond gean in our family, i think thats how it goes.

so echk and deltas dad must have good parti colour geans as a poodle with more than one colour is called a parti poodle ie black and white.

no that must have been a litter before or one of the other pups, we only found gypsy when she was 8 weeks and dint get her till she was 12 or 13 weeks old. as my mum had a holiday booked and i had college so she would have been left on her own in the house for 8 hours, which is not posible for a puppy or most dogs.

He does! But he has funny tufts sticking out and wild eyes like his dad sometimes haha
Funny, I haven't looked at this thread in so long. Now really looking at both parents I can really see both in him, whereas I often find myself only seeing mostly cocker. So thanks amanda! Hahah

So neat to look at these pictures in this thread :)

I didn't get to see Chloe's parents in person because just the puppies were brought to my house ( I know better now!) but I was emailed pictures before I met the puppies. The puppies were quite a variety of colours...a couple of blacks, a chocolate, and then Chloe and another sibling were brown/white but not the same brown. It was really hard to choose!

This is mom:



This is dad:

Thanks Karen. =) I spend a LOT of time on that boys coat lol. (I have D'Artagnan now, but sis bought and breed him, I got him later. I wasn't happy with her breeding him, just to clarify about the owning thing)

It's great being able to see all the parents! It's odd though, how so many don't really look anything like them lol.
