We are getting a puppy and I’m very excited. She’s only less than 2 weeks old, so I’m hoping lockdown will be relaxed by mid-May.

We’ve had puppies before as we were puppy socialisers for Hearing Dogs. It will be a new experience keeping a puppy to adulthood. The children are very excited we are finally getting a puppy they can keep.

Got to pick a name now...

Need clues!!

Cocker Spaniel, kinda red coloured. I know Mum very well and she has the most wonderful temperament. I love Cockers. I’m probably biased but from working with Hearing Dogs, I love Cockers, and Poodles.

My dd is a redhead and is called Ruby.
She was actually born brown and it changed!!
Ruby is a fine ddog name imo!!
And also imo a ddog needs a middle name!!
Our new dpuppy - arrived with us before any sign of CV is Gabriella Boomer!!

Windy, that is one good looking dog! <3

Congrats OP, it'll be lovely to keep a dog to adulthood for you and the kids.

We're getting our first ever puppy too- he's 11 days old. Aiming for end of May if all is well. Unlike you I haven't got the foggiest what I'm doing so I've been up all night with anxiety the past week!

Here's mine! Show us yours!

Ah cute!! Ours was 14 weeks when we got her so pretty big already!! Her legs have a life of their own and not controlled by dpuppy in any way!!
Pic taken 4 weeks ago so even longer now!.

Our beautiful boy is one tomorrow, so officially not a puppy anymore (I think).

He's a golden working cocker who is obsessed with socks, slippers and twigs. Our house was a mud bath all winter and now we're in lockdown of course, but luckily have a field just a few minutes walk away where he can run around (as long as we get up really early).

Right now he's asleep on the floor, but will probably move on to my lap at some point this evening, and will be forgiven for all his naughtiness today smile

I'm hoping there's a photo this time!

Aww your puppies are all so adorable! I’ll have to get a photo, I’ve only got videos. And Ruby is a lovely name.

My little girl, Daisy, who I am due to be picking up in 3 weeks time. Doesn’t look likely to happen though due to lockdown sad
