Just wanted to know how you are doing at this strange time , I haven’t been much different with my Louis because I’m retired, but it must be hard for people who have been home with their pals and have to return to work, good luck x

I am self employed so everything came to a stop for me mid march when we decided to stop operating before the official lockdown. Molly had huge separation anxiety when I first had her so I made sure I spent some time away from my dogs during the lockdown (I sat in garage reading lol). Gradually returning to doing some work albeit in a different way to stay as safe as possible.

My dogs and I have very much enjoyed more time for them.

Lockdown for us was ok as we live rurally so could still go on good walks without it being busy. If anything Digby has been less bothered by separation anxiety as he’s been taking himself off for some peace (we have two boys aged 12 and 14!). The only thing is that I’m now definite that I’d like another poo, but just dont want to pay the inflated prices around at the moment. I’m looking at rescues too, but i suspect those needing rehomed may have issues that won’t be seen as compatable with our two boys. We’re in no rush tho 😀

Yet another lockdown, luckily I live near the downs so lovely walks , I now have a problem with Louis , he’s never done it before but he keeps rolling on his back in all sorts of poo, he’s 4 now and can’t understand why he’s just started , also now this time of year isn’t the best for bathing him .

Unfortunately once they have discovered the delights of rolling close supervision and calling away before they start is your best defence. Hopefully soon be frosty days and less mud.

Molly has not been very well so we started lockdown with a whole host of vet visits and lots of this

Louis just looks so comfortable in his chair. I’ve noticed that Digby has started to try and roll a bit now and he is just over 2 years old. He seems to respond to a firm leave it if i catch him in time, but once he’s committed I’ve no chance😂.
Poor Molly- I hope she’s feeling a bit better now.
We got our new rescue dog a couple of weeks ago- he is a maltipoo so quite a bit smaller than Digby, but he makes up for it in character. Thankfully they are getting along well so far so fingers crossed it continues. 🤞

Hi Everyone! I’m new to the site - love reading all of the threads about your pooches.
I posted a thread (realise I duplicated it- sorry) but i haven’t got any responses yet. Hoping someone can share their opinions on my baby boys coat x

Awwwww lovely new addition - what is he called?

Molly has a bit of milky coffee as her treat when we go out on ling trips to see the specialist vets with no problem. Some dogs do not digest milk well though so just small amount and see how it goes.

Molly doing a bit better now and has a lovely new coat to keep her warm this winter, she has problems with her back and legs so cut really long to cover them well and she is also currently shaved after an ultrasound so it keeps her belly warm too

Our previous dog loved her small portion of milky porridge every morning and lived til she was over 15 without any issues at all. A little of what you fancy 😀

Molly is just about the MOST beautiful Cockapoo I've seen in a VERY long time. Those eyes are so dreamy and loving and kind.

Dig, I don’t blame you, I checked how much people are asking for puppies now and they were between £2500 and £3000, I was shocked.
