Meet Arthur

I am in the first flush of love!

His parents both PRA/FN clear, eyes clear. My old lab has taken to him beautifully. Yay!

Absolutely adorable smile

hahah, cute but good luck.. Puppy proof your house. Lock up ALL your shoes and stop caring about your undamaged furniture.

You cannot scare me Flum - I have had Labrador puppies before grin

They ate the corners of walls, floors, and I only had odd shoes for months.

He has that lovely puppy smell <swoon>

Got to love a spanner. (Sigh)

My next dog will be a cocker, although I'm usually a lab or retriever girl. smile

I walk several & have totally fallen for them.

Lots of puppy stories please!!

My cocker puppy is a beast these days. I have never regretted him he's fab. But a chew monster!

I love my cocker

SconeForAStroll Fri 06-Nov-15 20:05:05

excellent typo there TooOld grin

He's now fast asleep. Which means he will be awake in the middle of the night, doesn't it?!

Wotsitsareafterme Fri 06-Nov-15 20:07:40

I have that pink step stool too

TooOldForGlitter Fri 06-Nov-15 20:21:55

It's not like I type that word often, thank you autocorrect!

SconeForAStroll Fri 06-Nov-15 20:46:58

Awww, yours are beautiful too wotsits and passive.

Any tips?

PassiveAgressiveQueen Fri 06-Nov-15 21:48:26

Biggest tip, don't think ahh they are only small i shan't worry that she pulls a bit on the lead. They are damn strong for little dogs and really hurt.
And really work on that recall.

Looks a lot like mine grin

Ours is not really meant to go on the bed...hmm

NigelLikesSalad Fri 06-Nov-15 22:05:32

Gorgeous!! The best breed ever. I love our boy, they are such amazing dogs. They are definitely humans dressed as dogs, or at least they think they are. The only thing I hate at the moment is the wet dog smell, my house wreaks :/

Camden. He looks like Jim Morrison.

CamdenTownie Fri 06-Nov-15 22:11:49

Tpel- I think it's the hair grin

Yep. Both are gorgeous.

MsAdorabelleDearheartVonLipwig Fri 06-Nov-15 22:21:31

Aww, he's lovely. grin

Our old boy was a cocker. Fantastic little dog. Absolutely brilliant. Trained like a dream, absolutely loved to work and never did much damage in the house at all. Good luck with your adorable little Arthur.

hennipenni Fri 06-Nov-15 23:03:04

Love cockers, here's my boy

Arthur is gorgeous. Have lots a fun, but Passive is right, the strength to size ratio is off the scale if they want to go somewhere you don't grin.

This is Chigley, now ten months old, just before he went to the groomer this week.
