Hi my name is Lorna and I live in Glasgow. I recently lost my two elderly cockers and I plan to get a cockapoo in the new year. I am addicted to looking at videos of cockapoos and their antics. I would like to make friends with like minded people and maybe meet up with people in my area. :)

Hi Lorna - Welcome x

If you go for a walk in any park in the Glasgow area I'm sure you'll come across a Cockapoo or two !

Thanks for your kind messages. I am eating sleeping and breathing cockapoos at the moment and you just can't bore regular folks with doggy talk. Even my hubby is losing interest and he loved our cockers very much, especially Amber our female.

He'll fall back in love once you get one, I wonder if he feels like they are being replaced? What colours were your cockers? were they both bitches? Do you know what you are looking for in your cockapoo, any pics of your cockers? x

Hi Karen, my cockers were a blue roan and an orange roan. Amber, the orange roan, loved my hubby and was very flirtatious with him. She started having seizures a few months ago and the vet diagnosed a brain tumour. Sooty the blue one was so bonded to me and wouldn't follow direction from anyone else. I think I would like an American cockapoo as I like the idea of them being slightly smaller in size. What kind of cockapoos do you have and what colours?

Ah they both sound lovely and great appropriate names but really can't imagine how you are feeling wihtout them. I saw a beautiful orange roan the other day and must say have a soft spot for blue roans. Wilf is black with a white tux his mum was a blue roan show cocker and his dad was a black miniture poodle, he is nearly 4 and Mablel is blue roan, her mum was a blure roan show cocker and her dad was a cream miniture poodle. There are quite a few American cockapoos on here but not sure you can always garantee that they will be smaller, I'm sure Kendals Delta is a similar size to one of her other girls, Im sure people will post though to help you out.x

Absolutely devastating to lose them within six weeks of each other but I am hoping time heals. Just not the same walking by myself and no-one speaks to a lone woman, however with a dog everyone is my friend. Just got the impression that some of the English cockapoos were pretty big although I know it is not a precise science. :) Your dogs sound gorgeous. x

Welcome to the forum! You certainly can 'eat sleep and breathe' Cockapoos on this site and no one would bat an eyelid ........ we're all the same!
So sorry to hear about your Cockers. Please feel free to post some pics of them on here. We'd love to see them.
Good luck in your search for a puppy. There are a number of folk in Scotland on this forum so hopefully you will find someone close to Glasgow. :)

Karen and Rufus x

hey welcome, where about in Glasgow are you?

we had a smiler experience with my mums cockers when we were wee, the gold cocker Tico started having seizers and i found her after her first one and she had several after that within 24 hours, when we took her to the vets they gave us a list of things they could do but my mum felt that as she was almost 13 it wasn't fair to put her through lodes of tests that might or might not help so we had her PTS. then with in a couple of weeks Mitzi our black cockers same age, just went down hill pining for her.


it was so sad.


do you have a colour in mind will you be going for a girl or a boy ?

Hi Kendal, I live in Bearsden but I grew up in Kirkintilloch. Are you in Cumbernauld? So sorry to hear of your experience with your cockers. Don't you think it is too much of a coincidence that they both went downhill so close together, same as mine? Your dogs are really beautiful by the way. Where did you get them from?

I would like a male puppy as it's training won't be disrupted by seasons ( I don't like the idea of the routine spaying of bitches as I knew of many dogs who ended up with urinary incontinence. On the other hand my female, Amber developed pyometra in old age).

I like the idea of the American cocker as I believe they tend to be a bit smaller than the English cross. I want a dog to do obedience with as I loved being a dog club member when my dogs were young. I really would like a parti coloured puppy, rather than a solid colour. :)

Hi Puppylove
Welcome aboard, so sorry to hear about your loss. I hope you have success in finding a cockpoo.

My Millie is a blue roan, english cocker/poodle. She's not too big, at 6 1/2 months she's 7.3kg.

yes i am in cumbernauld

our cockers died about 15 years ago the gold girl Tico had mamary cancer(both were spayed after first season), then the seasurs, the black one had never been apart form Tico as their was only about 11 weeks between getting them Tico was my mums first wedding aniversory present which is ment to be paper so she decided she wanted a pedigree cocker that came with a pedigree paper (lol she had it all planned out lol) then 11 weeks later it was her birthday and she decided she wanted a second cocker.

Mitzi never went anywere without Tico she would falow her everywhere so when she went she was lost, i think she stopped eating and drinking and just cried all the time. she pined so much for her she became more ill(also had mamary cancer) we went 10 years without a dog in the family till my mum had my youngest brother 7 years ago, as she felt children need to grow up with dogs, poodles were in the house before she was born, and cockers were in the house before i was born so the cockapoo was the perfect mix.

have had all my girls spayed before their first season(in the hope they wont suffer mamary cancer) and we have not seen any isue with incontinance, infact Echo i have seen go a full 12 hours with out peeing, she will normaly pee on comand but sometimes she just refuses to pee till we get back home.


my girls are all from sylml im linolinshire the two solids are half sisters(same dad) and the two parties are hald sister (Same dad) the two solids are also aunts to my parti girls. Delta(red and white) is an american Mini the others are all English minis, she is the same Hight as my blond girl Gypsy but is about 2 inches shorter than the other two she is 16" they are 17-18"

Hi Kendal, I have looked at the website for sylml and their set up looks amazing. Wouldn't mind living there myself.

Do you do obedience with your dogs? :)
