Thank you Nicola! We are on the waiting list and hope our pup will be born any day soon. We know one of Thirza's previous litter and he is a gorgeous dog! it feels like a long wait and will be a long drive for us too- the whole family is so excited!
Hi! So excited for you! Are you going to visit before you bring your puppy home? We did and that wait is even longer!!
I've been reading your other post about colour and temperament. My Lola is chocolate brown with a splat of white on her chest and on the tips of her paws. She is so good natured (she has to be. Our 7 year old treats her like a human sister) and wouldn't know how to bite someone even if it came with a set of instructions!! She's our first ever dog (ie we were clueless!) and you hear so many horror stories about dog breeders/farms but Thirza was really lovely and helpful. Lola has been a dream dog - easy to train, she only ever weed indoors the day we brought her home. Day two she was going outside. Within a week she had stopped barking when we left her alone including through the night. She still gets excited to see people but people always stop and comment on her and ALWAYS have to stroke her - I hope you're ready for that!!
Can't wait to see pictures of your new pup and hope you post lots of info
Thank you Nic. That's great to read. We we dont really have strong views on either gender or colour. We would prefer a chocolate or light boy- but very happy to wait and see what arrives! Thirza has been very helpful.
Yes, we have a wonderful Cockapoo from Marley Doodles. We got him in April last year and couldn't ask for a more wonderful dog. I never expected him to be so loving and happy all the time. We think we met his brother from the same litter today when we were at the Essex Dog Day. Amazing!
Anyway, we highly recommend Marley Doodles. We have the best dog ever!
NicolaG: our Teddy must be Lola's brother! He is black all over and was one of eight (three girls, five boys). We are in Essex, so it was a long journey for us too, and it's the first time we've had a dog. He has changed our lives so much!
We will be collecting our new puppy from Marley Doodles on the 7th September. It has felt like a long search and wait and we are so excited! I was hoping for a dog called Dave but the children have over-ruled and he is called Benji. Just 8 more sleeps!
Glad you haven't got long to wait, it is such an exciting time.
I read a story about a bloke who always wanted a pet called Dave. His family rescued some ex battery hens and one particular one was virtually bare of feathers, they called him 'Naked Dave' even though it was a girl! The poor chook made a great recovery and I believe is no longer naked!
Poppy our new cockapoo puppy from marley doodles gloucester
We are collecting our 8 week old apricot girl cockapoo named poppy from marley doodles in gloucester next week! We have visited her once and are very excited about picking her up. We have friends who bought a brown cockapoo from marley doodles last month and they are overjoyed with him. Definately recommend this experienced breeder.
