It has gradually been dawning on me just how special cockapoos are. I know we are all biased and all adore our dogs, but other people's reactions to Dylan are also amazing. I realised this morning on our walk, everyone we met broke into a big grin watching him bound around full of the joys of life. It is just impossible to be out with him and not smile. He may get less cute as he grows out of his puppy ways, but at the moment he is just so joyful and funny to watch that he attracts attention wherever we go. They should prescribe cockapoos on the NHS as a cure for depression.
