Thanks :)
I think his blue eyes may have been the flash ! Im not sure. But having just looked at the picture I took of him outside they do look dark blue ! They have only just opened tho. Are blue eyes different ?

Adorable fella. =D Who is his breeder?

On the eye color thing, when they open their eyes at two weeks they are always 100% going to be blue, and have a overcast film like a cataract. The film goes away soon, and their eyes go to their set color later. Real blue eyes have to have a certain genetic code and are a lot rarer. Normally a eye that will stay blue will be bright from birth, not this deep blue that Bear has. His should be a dark almost black brown once he's grown.

Thanks :)
Wow green eyes would be amazing ! as would blue but his parents are both black so I am assuming they will turn very dark :)

Enneirda... I'm getting him from a lady who has just bred them for the first time here in Hampshire. Both parents are KC registered and checked. His mum is a lovely cocker, black with grey and his dad is a minature poodle (also checked and KC) so we dont know how cockapoo-ish or curly he will be but as his coat already has quite a few ripples going on I hope he will curl up over the next few weeks :) Having looked at other pups they look pretty smooth to start with also.

:) Thanks Dave !
I just hope he gets all curly ! There are signs of waviness there, looking at other pups he looks ok but you never know ! He is F1 and I bet I get the cockapoo who needs curling tongs lol

Im not sure lol. I think maybe she meant the poodles eyes have been checked. I would think so as she shows him and he wins prizes etc His mum is a working gundog i think. I will ask more questions on friday when we visit again

Eyes are one of the main problems for both breeds, so that's good. And titles are great, means they got good temperaments and confirmation. =)
