So yesterday my stepdad and I had a hell of a ride to see Ludde, now 5 weeks old. We drove from my hometown Sandefjord in Norway, 6 o'clock in the morning to visit Ludde and his breeder who lives in our neighbourcountry, Sweden, 335 miles away. We even drove home the same day. I guess a 670 mile trip is a pretty good distance to go in just one day :)

It was sooo worth it, and I'm so much in love with this little guy. We had a wonderful connection, and he even fell asleep in my arms :)

Here are some pics:

Thanks :) I think he is tiny, but that's probably because all 5 week old puppies are kind of small. And I have nothing to compare him with as I have never seen a cockerpoo in real life before :) Saw his mom yesterday as well (an English cocker), and I can't say that se was very big (mediocre I guess). Don't know about his dad though. He's a miniature poodle.

But who knows; his ancestry might include giants :):)

I've never heard the term "outing" before, but; they keep them inside, and have a fenced yard outside they run around in everyday (if the weather allows it).

And yes - he seemed like such a good little lad. Nice and mellow on my lap, playfull when on the ground. The perfect dog :)

Really? hum. Ok, the usage of 'outing' was meant for meaning going somewhere for a short time. Like going to the park. It's not used to much over her either, I just like older and less used words lol.

I was wondering because pups raised only outside are normally very undersocialized, yet people still do it so often even for small breeds. But thats good, sounds like they have a great set up! Expect him to take to house training easier, normally it does help.

I gotta agree with Kendal here, sorry but he sounds like a puppy lol. But keep thinking the way you do, he is trusting, loving, and has confidence in strangers, you got a good dog there. Great dog are made not born you know. But having a great start and temperament sure helps! :D

Yes it does ;) I'm not sure how much "outing" he's experienced with. I know he's been taking out for car rides and met a lot of people. Guess that will do.

I'm not sure what to expect from a cockerpoo either, but it can be very interesting :). Last dog I had was a boxer, and I've also had a JRT-mix (with the "JRT killer instinct" quite intact).
