Hi, I am so glad I found your forum. I will be getting my new puppy on March 26th. He is an apricot male, and his name is Finnegan. So excited to welcome this little bundle of joy into our family. I have never owned a cockapoo before, so I will have lots of questions. I have owned a cocker spaniel ( I rescued him at the SPCA, and we had him for 8 years. We then adoped a cheasapeake bay mix, and had him for 9 years, then our golden retriever was with us for 13 years). All wonderful, loving dogs, that I still miss. So when I realized I just couldn't live without a dog in my life, I researched to find what I felt would best fit into our home life now. I am 67 years old, and my husband is 73, so felt a smaller dog would be better suited to us. So, thank you so much for this forum, and its members. Looking forward to attaching a photo of Finnegan once he is home.
