For those who are thinking of getting another poo I would just say do it!

Dexter welcomed his new sister Bonnie into our home and adored her instantly. She copies everything he does. Whenever he drinks she drinks and whenever he goes to sleep she sleeps. They already can't bear to be apart and they snuggle up together to sleep.

They play for ages in the garden, he snatches her toys from her and she chases him round and round- they both love it. Sometimes they play a bit roughly together and she squeaks but I clap my hands loudly, say no and they stop.

We make a huge fuss of Dexter- always greet him first and feed him first, she doesn't mind at all. He has taken to sitting in her bed to remind her he is top dog which just about holds his bottom!

Now the drawbacks- double the amount of mud, leaves, twigs in my house, and lot of poo to clear up! I am always hoovering and washing the kitchen floor. Also 2 wet, muddy dogs to bath and dry is going to be challenging!

I haven't taken them both for a walk yet I have no idea how that will go perhaps someone could give me tips on walking 2 dogs on leads?!

Seeing the bond they have got together and how much they love each other already after such a short time makes it all worth it!

Oh that sounds lovely! I am desperate for another Cockapoo and have just started the search! After looking after a 6 month old friends Cockapoo yesterday it confirmed that it is definitely what we want! :) Walking with them both was really hard especially as one was calm and the other was excited and jumping all over the place! Such good fun though! :)

Can't wait to see some photos! It sounds like Dexter and Bonnie are going to be great companions. x

Aw lovely that they're getting on well, would be great to see some pics. The most special moment for me was when they first snuggled up to sleep together.

The third is a lot harder, or maybe that's cos I chose a loopy labradoodle!
It could be the loopy labradoodle or it could be a three thing! I found two kids easy but the third...:eek:

Wouldn't change it though :D x

Three!!! Dont be encouraging us who already have two.....

Im partial to a chocolate and the chocciepoos are stunning. Sings tempt-a-tion, then a puppy poo poo's on the floor and reality crowds back in LOL

Will take these two up to adulthood and would expect that will be me done with puppys for a long while.

Two together are fantastic tho. While its double trouble in some ways its great seeing them play and sleep together and as they arent littler mates they are bonding really well to us as well as each other.

So if you only have a single poo I would say if you are tempted then go for it. You are already feeding watering and walking one dog so its only a wee bit more work with two.

Tess I agree the more the merrier in my opinion when it comes to cockapoos .. I did laugh at the more leaves, muddy floor prints etc .. yep its messy but its all good fun .. double the love and cockapoo cuddles :) :)

My days of having a spotless clean house went out the window when I became a cockapoo owner, you cant have a perfect house and perfectly happy poos :) I have tried :) :)

I will be waiting for Bonnie pics.. enjoy your lovely Cockapoos xxx
