Hello world!

This is my very first post… eeeeeeeeek!

It’s just 13 sleeps until my boyfriend Marcus and I bring home our very own Cockapoo, Saffi. We’ve been waiting for this moment, see ‘Our Year-Long Cockapoo Search’, for a v.e.r.y. long time so to say that we’re excited is a bit of an understatement.

Why have I started this blog? Because I found the Cockapoo search a bit of a daunting, albeit exciting and informative process that might be interesting to others about to embark on a similar journey. Also, I have never been much of a diary or journal keeper and wondered if I’d have more success on a blog. And lastly, this is my first dog—I want to document the highs and lows—the challenges and the triumphs, the tricks taught and the messy accidents—in a nutshell the good, the bad and the ugly of dog ownership.

I plan (read ‘hope’) to read over my blog in a year’s time knowing that despite the problems we may have faced along the way we now have an affectionate, fun, beautiful and well-mannered Cockapoo.  The only deal I’ll make with you, the reader, is that you cannot laugh at me along the way…!

    Hi Turi,do you have any sort of list of breeders in the South?
    Have you any experience of Debbie’s Doodles or Cappella cockapoos.

  9. Hi Clare,

    Thank you for your comment!

    Yes I do have details of a lot of Southern breeders. Why don’t you send me an email at turi_ange@hotmail.com and I’ll see if I can help 🙂
