This is Basil, our new Cockapoo puppy! Yes, it was quite a surprise for us too! We were planning on a new pup next year and had a deposit down for a Spring/Summer 2012 litter with Jukee Doodles, the breeders we got Rufus from. Well, just two weeks ago, Jukee Doodles posted photos of their remaining pups following their puppy selection days. On the list was a beautiful black and white pup which JD were going to keep themselves as they loved everything about him. As he had been a 'keeper' he had not been out on any of the puppy selection days. At the last minute they decided to release him for sale after all. The reason was that for them, black and white is a rare colour. He has lots of ermine spotting on his body, especially his chest and front legs, which is just beginning to show through. If they were to keep him then a waiting list would develop for his colouring and they, as yet, do not quite know the ingredients for his specific colouring. I showed the photo to Gareth and within minutes we were on the phone!

We visited Basil yesterday (on our way up to the Lake District on holiday) to confirm our selection. He is utterly gorgeous. He is full of character, getting on well with people and the other pups that were there. He is generally a happy go lucky chap and we fell completely head over heels in love with him. His coat is, and will be, utterly stunning.

We pick up Basil on our way back from the Lakes on Saturday 13th Aug aged 10 weeks exactly. Hopefully JD will have started some crate training with him .......aren't they great?! I am so happy! :D:D:D

Here are some more pics of our gorgeous Basil by way of a slideshow ......not too long, honest!

He is soooo lovely. I am completly biased as Millie is black and white too. she has darkened (if thats a word), up over the last couple of months, but still lovely.

I hope we get to meet him at the Surrey meet? :D

Well as you know I'm partial to a roan so can say first hand that Basil is gorgeous and a perfect compliment to Rufus. I will certainly be 'watching this space' to see how his coat develops!!!

Lovely photos Karen :).

See you on Saturday!!

Thanks everyone. :) It is going to be interesting watching his coat. Julia doesn't think he is a roan; he just has lots and lots of black spots (part dalmation maybe?!!). On the slideshow that I have posted a link to there is a photo of him on my daughter's lap showing his tummy - lots of black spots!

By the way, my new Easidri towel is getting lots of use up here in The Lakes with Rufus. Thank you for pointing us in the right direction Julia, it's a godsend!

aaaw he is fab and can see why he was nicknamed Bumble, Basil is such a cool name:D
Oh I know Jayne. I really quite liked the name Bumble. My problem is that I do lots of agility - love it! I often shorten Rufus' name to Roo when I need to give quick directions ...........now I can't be shouting out 'Bum' across the course can I?!!!! :laugh::laugh::laugh:

Karen your new puppy Basil is wonderful .. He looks like he is the same of Kedal's Echo, stunning cockapoo, due to the amount of white in his coat, I think he would be a Black and White Parti with Ticking, ticking is the name for the little black spots coming through.... all my cockapoo coat research may be paying off ha ha ha ... he is lovely and he was just meant to be yours, which is a lovely story :) :) Rufus looks keen too, always a good thing xxxx Have a good holiday ... followed by a puppy collecting day xx
