I think it's probably just the angle of the photos. Rufus is still substantially bigger than Basil and is one of the biggest Cockapoos on the forum at about 20" to the shoulder. We're expecting Basil to be approx 15". Basil has grown though .....about time I got the tin cans out I think!Ah how wonderful. Such gorgeous boys! It looks like Basil might be bigger than Rufus when fully grown! Fantastic! - I want another one!!
