Hello all
I'm a new member and almost beside myself with excitement that me and hubbie are getting our very first cockerpoo! He's four weeks old today and he'll be coming home with us on 10th November :D

This Sunday 16th we are visiting for the second time and looking forward to some play and cuddles from our little boy. We then need to see if one of our names suits him, so far we have Teddy, Tucker, Bertie, Sydney, Buddy..... for various different reasons.....

How did you manage to choose the name of your puppies? Maybe when we see him on Sunday we'll just know which one to use?! I'll be browsing through the forum to see if there are any other names to add to my list :p

So any tips for the first few days puppy is home with us? I'm reading lots of material to get up to speed and I've puppy training planned already too!

I look forward to getting to know you and the site better, Kaz xx

Well I have to say it took a long time to decide on a name! There's four of us in the house that all had to agree (and then mine & my sisters boyfriends had inputs as well), so 6 of us to make a conclusion! :O We managed to look through lists of names and bring it down to 2 that everyone liked to vote on at the time 'Izzie' & 'Bonnie' but Izzie won :D So a long process ;) Good luck choosing a name! I quite like Tucker :) It could be a first for the site maybe? I've not read of any others.

*Tip - Keep anything of value out of reach (chewing)*
Good luck :D

Happy new puppy :) And local to me too... I work in Telford, and although I currently live in Wolves I'm moving to Shrewsbury next year.

We chose Pareto's name even before we'd decided to get a pup... we do a lot of walking and always see so many people walking with their dogs. So we started talki about names... and since I take up 80% of the bed (allegedly) and the Pareto principle is the rule of 80:20 the name stuck. And yes, we are indeed nerds! What can be expected from two accountants eh lol

Good luck in choosing... I think the right name will come to you. I personally love Teddy... but that's on my baby name list so I may be biased :)

Hello All
Thank you so much for your messages, I feel very welcomed.
Puppy is apricot, but quite a light apricot with darker ears - perhaps similar to Izzie. I have some pics of him at 1.5 weeks and 3 weeks and we'll be taking more this weekend, so I'll figure out how to upload them!

Kerry, how lovely that you are nearby, we're just in Albrighton so perhaps in a couple of months time we could meet up for a bit of puppy socialisation?

Thanks for the tip about chewing :( yep, we've been thinking about what we need to do to puppy proof the house! Any tips will be gratefully received :)

I'll keep you posted on his name - but Teddy and Tucker are my two favourite at the moment, so good advice :D

Welcome to the forum, be warned it's addictive :D

We started with a list when choosing our pups name, we used her mum's name as starting point for some. Gaia is the name of the Greek Goddess of the earth and also the name of a Satellite my husband worked on, due to be launched in 2014, when in orbit it will survey all the stars in our galaxy, Gaia's mum's name is Galaxy ........

You will be very welcomed on here by everyone :D Because we all love cockapoos so we love their owners for the great breed choice ;)
He looks gorgeous :D Yes that's Izzie's colouring! :O So maybe more look-a-likes ;) It's great seeing pups that look like Izzie, I always say that it could be her at a glance!
Yes definitely keep things that you'd like to keep in tact out of reaching distance, we had some laptop cables chewed when she was a pup, I had to buy a new one :) But she's out of that stage now thankfully :)
Good choice of names with those two I think :) So whichever you choose is great :D

Hi :welcome:!! We pick up our little bundle of fun next week!! He's chocolate and a birthday present for my daughter so she chose the name Cookie. I too like the name Teddy, yep this site is very addictive, I was trying to revise for an interview last week but kept getting drawn back to here!!( I did get the job:)

Hello and :welcome:

Aww love you puppy pic.

As for names don't be surprised if you chop and change a few times- even more so as he grows!!

I like both Teddy and Tucker but as I know a few oodles called Teddy- I am going to go for Tucker as it's a bit different :)

I agree Shirley, Tucker is different :) That's why I chose it, I do like Teddy, it just seems like it would be a more popular name & why not be unique ;) Although our two girlies names aren't unique :/ I didn't pick the second one though, I had a few unique ideas but no one agreed with me :( Never mind :D

Thanks for your thoughts - after a look around the site, Tucker does seem more unique.... I'll see what the little man has to say about it tomorrow ;) I can hardly sleep I'm so excited about seeing him :eek:

More cute puppy photos to follow! X

:D:D The only thing that would make me hold back about 'Tucker' is its rhyming swearword. Sorry to bring down the tone, but I was just imagining me out in the park calling on Tucker:D If he didn't come back when he was called, people could be forgiven for thinking I was saying the 'other word':D :D heaven forbid!
Us cockapoos owners owuld never use that kind of language though would we ;) HAHA, I like the name, there used to be a programme I watched as a kid with a character called Tucker in it, so I really like it :) But yes it does rhyme, it's just unique.
Can't wait to see more pictures :D

I am sure the wee puppy will be absolutely adorable whatever he is called. It is such an exciting time, and yes, Tucker is so different. I remember Grange Hill - and Tucker. Years later my husband taught a class with a boy called Thacker in it who had exactly the same 'endearing' attributes as Tucker:D

Hi Kaz,

Welcome to the site!

My boyfriend Marcus and I joined the forum a few months ago. We don't yet have a puppy - sooooo impatient! We should, if all goes to plan, be bringing home our new puppy in February to March next year. Just need to move now (exchanged yesterday btw folks!).

Your puppy is just beautiful! I can't wait to see pictures from this weekend.

In terms of names I love Teddy. Blonde names... Xanthos (think he was a blonde Greek God), Jaffa, Casper... Can't think of anymore off the top of my head. Will have a think!

Enjoy tomorrow

Turi x
