He has finally arrived! He's only been here a few hours but, of course, we have all fallen in love with him. He looks sooo much like a cocker. I wonder if he is going to get curly at all... It was really hard taking a clear picture of him because he was moving around so much!

So far he has run around all over the livingroom, sniffed the cats (one really did not like him so far, one seemed a little wary but open to him... it will just take time), ate a little food and drank some water, went pee in the back yard, and then passed out on the floor ahahaha. He grabbed that red blanket in his mouth and was trying so hard to make it into a perfect bed for himself, flopping around pushing it up into a little bundle. He looked so pleased with himself as he finally plopped down on it. It has been a long day for him. He is such a little cuddle-bug!!!

In my brother's lap

He kept trying to eat while lying down, lazy bum hahaha

Gorgeous, and well worth the wait. You're right, not a curl in sight. It will be interesting to see how his coat develops. Flo wasn't curly till about 10 weeks but her fur wasn't as smooth and soft looking as Rufus is - it looked a bit coarser. Look forward to update soon.

He's 11 weeks so maybe he will just be straight! We'll see :) he is such a love. Thank you all for the compliments!! I have more pics I will post when i'm back on my laptop.
As for the cat, no, that's the one who wasn't quite sure about him but didn't hiss or anything. He's snoozing now. I am getting lots of exercise today, in and out, in and out. Trying to avoid him going to the bathroom on the floor by staying one step ahead of him!

I caught Flo 'humping' a cushion a couple of times when she was really young (around 4 months) so Mabel isn't unique in that respect. Flo hasn't done it since. Maybe it's 'hormones'.

Echo humps delta and we sometimes find Gypsy humping the cat. i would stop her humping your sun nomater how funny he finds it. its a dominance thing.

Echo didnt realy do it till we first got my brothers dogs over and she wanted to clam totts the small dog as her own so she started humping her and wouldnt let Amber near her.

My previous dog used to hump her dog bed sometimes. I always thought it was really odd because she was a female and I didn't think they did that but I guess it is normal. She never humped people though haha
As for the kitchen thing, I am having a similar problem. I bring him out ALL the time and he doesn't go, then I bring him back in and the second I look away he's peeing! Ahhh! haha

Looking forward to seeing more pics of lovely Rufus...
I have lots more! It's just a matter of getting them off my phone and onto the computer :) I have seriously been going non-stop since he arrived. It's remarkable how much energy it takes! haha. He's actually pretty calm a lot of the time, but I'm constantly feeling like I have to watch him so closely just in case he starts sniffing around and then its up and out the door! Whew! Someday he will stop going inside... I just have to keep telling myself that haha

He is very cute! I love his color. :D
Thanks, Dave!!

His face is so wrinkly!


He has these little tufts on the top of his ears, they look like little wings bahaha

Parapluie,

Your dog is beautiful and playful looking! My dog looks like a cocker as yours does, as you can see. In fact, in my dog's mother's third and final litter, she had a dog that looked just like yours.

As to the humping, our female dog has done that off and on and rarely, and only with one object: a near life-size dog puppet that "sings" Christmas carols when we move its mouth. Once it lands on the floor, Zoe is humping it. Strange . . . she never does that with anything else and turns up her nose at any male interest. Maybe she is sick of the Christmas carols?

ahh I know! so exhausting! but luckily he's adorable and so sweet and when he's sleeping it seems like nothing could be wrong with the world so he makes up for all the stress hahaha! he's definitely getting the hang of going to the bathroom outside, but I am still super paranoid any time I see him sniff inside, just in case, and he does have some accidents :(

yeah, I think it is often about dominance, it should be alright in the end I think :)
and noooo don't even worry about it! i don't mind ahaha

thank you, Golddie! He is very playful but luckily he likes to sleep too (so it gives me a little break!)
