Four Becomes Five!

I'd like to introduce you to the newest member of our family. This little ball of fluff is called "Max" and he will be 12 weeks old tomorrow.

Max is half Cocker Spaniel (Mum) and half Toy Poodle (Dad) which unfortunately makes him a "Cockapoo" but he is a real sweetheart and very good natured and best of all he doesn't shed which has meant that so far he hasn't triggered Peej's allergies off.

He's only allowed in the garden at the moment as he's only just had his last injection but that's good because it means he's getting used to the sounds of cars going past without seeing them so hopefully when he does get both together it won't be such a big deal.
The kids both love him to bits although Josh was a little unsure at first he's really come round to him now. I think once Max calms down a little and gets past his chewing phase he is going to be a fantastic addition to the family, not that he isn't already but you know what I mean!

I was wondering if he had arrived,did mean to ask!! you know how it is!
I love the fact that he is a cockapoo (what a fab name for a breed! lol!!)
He is just adorable... Josh & Ellie (especially Ellie) look like they are well and truly in their element.
You do realise that Alexs request for a pup are now going to intensify...lol (and we know how persistant he can be!!) may have to send him round so he can have a doggy fix!!lol!!

Awww I want one too. When Eric and Ashleigh were working on me to agree to a dog a few weeks ago, a Spaniel was one of the suggestions, a cross with a poodle is a combination I wouldn't have thought of, but he's absolutely beautiful. Beautiful photos.

Nice pictures of your family to see! Your new addition is adorable! I had a "poo" once and he was such a sweetie. Take care, Deb

Cute little guy! Why did you say "unfortunately" he's a cockapoo? Lauren (Meader) got one around christmas time and she said she picked a coockapoo especially because they are perfect for families with children. :-)
