Hi Johanna. I just wanted to drop you an email to let you know that Jumble is doing fantastically well. He’s a really happy bouncy dog. He has made so many friends over the past few months (as have we). He loves chasing, jumping in long grass, playing tug of war, getting muddy and tissue paper. He’s very smart and we’ve taught him a few tricks. He loves commuting into work with me on the tube and as you can imagine he gets loads of attention. He sleeps every night in his bed in our room and wakes us up every morning by licking our ears. He’s amazing around kids and loves nothing more than friends coming to visit so he can show off and get loads of cuddles. He’s been visiting my Grandma quite regularly who has early stage dementia. She forgets lots of things but she never forgets Jumble who will just snooze with his head on her lap forever. It makes her so calm and she doesn’t stop smiling and stroking his tummy. It’s as if he knows what to do. Amazing. We absolutely love and adore Jumble and couldn’t imagine life without him. Thank you. A photo attached for you.

All the best and happy 2017, David and Mel

She’s doing so well and is very fit and healthy! Anyway I hope that you’re all well. Kind regards Helen x

Hi Johanna. Hope you are all well? Bailey had a trim today so thought I  would send you a piccie so you can see how handsome he is! I’m pleased to say that he is still on a hypoallergenic dry food and is doing well. No more problems! He gives us so much pleasure. All the best to you all. Love Viv  x

Hi Johanna, sorry its been so long since I gave you an update on Joey.  We have had a lot on this year moving house to give Joey a lot bigger garden.  He is growing up fast and has developed a wonderful loving personality, he is just a cuddle monster!! We don’t know how we lived without him before.  Enclosing some photos of him, we go everywhere together, my boss loves him so much he sometimes request I bring him in on a Friday.  Take care  Susan x

Hi, Eve, thought you might like to know how Georgie is getting on.  She’s a very cuddly pup and is enjoying the garden.  She helps feed the chickens and then watches them eat.  She sleeps all night in her crate with no mess or crying.  Starting to get the hang of toileting outside during the day.  We visited the vet yesterday to get treats and cuddles ahead of getting her jabs on Friday. She met two dogs in crates who were quiet and calm and licked them, so I’m pleased as my neighbour’s dog came into our garden and gave her a fright the other day by barking loudly a couple of times!  I was worried about that experience, but she seemed fine around those dogs at the vet yesterday.   We’re delighted with our Georgie.  Kind regards, Wendy

Hi Johanna thought I’d send you these pictures. Amazing coincidence but we bumped into another couple with a cockapoo the same age and they looked so similar. Turns out they both came from you and are sisters. Diana and Chris will also send you some pictures. They weren’t looking their best as they were both soaked. Also attached a picture of Poppy looking her best. She’s an angel, still not keen on being left and not quite got to grips with the toilet training. Hope you are all well. Sue & John x

Hi Johanna

Apologies for not being in touch earlier its been ‘on my list’ but life is very hectic. Our new school is now up and running but it has taken its toll on my energy levels.
Ruffles is a complete hit and has brought smiles to over 280 children to date. I am in the process of getting my IT leaders to compile you some classic photos of her journey so far! I have put a few of mine at end of email but his are far more artistic!
It has been interesting at times but she really has taken to school life like a duck to water! Oh and Ruffles loves water any chance she gets she’s in there. Winchester is surrounded by rivers and streams and she has jumped in most!
We started dog obedience classes in September and she’s doing well.
She’s worked closely with several children who’ve got stresses at home and the feedback from parents has been fantastic. One mum sent this email…. They had experienced a sudden family bereavement.

My son has chatted through with me everything you did for him today and Ruffles definitely proved her worth and the wisdom of the school’s decision – he loved having his special time with her today and is already telling me who he is going to walk her with the rest of the week.’
 
So in short she is proving to be a star!  On a personal note I cannot imagine life without her she’s with me 24/7. Love her to bits!
Until the proper photos reach you here are a few classics!
Digging in the garden!

Hi Johanna,
Its been about 9 months now since we came to collect Pebbles from you back in January. Pebbles has fitted into family life so easily to the extent that we often wonder what we did before we had her. She’s made us all more active and is a pleasure to spend time with. Sarah and I wanted to thank yourself and Eve for all of your help and advice in the first few weeks. I have attached a photo of Pebbles on her first day at home and another of her taken about 3 weeks ago so that you can see how she’s grown and how her colour has changed (just as you said it would).
Thank you so much, Andrew & Sarah

Hi Johanna,
I hope you are well. Just a quick update to let you know how Ruby is progressing. She is really growing both in stature and in confidence and now that we are able to take her for walks she has settled down and seems more content. She greets everyone she meets with great affection and everyone is so taken by our little fluff ball. We took her to socialisation class on Wednesday evening and she had her first off lead outing today at Ferry Meadows and loved meeting all the other dogs and chasing the rooks. She came back to us when called (click and treat seems to work well) so we were relieved that it went so well. We have been leaving her on her own for an hour or so each day and although she cries for a little while she seems ok when we get home. We get 8 hours in bed every night and bar the very occasional accident she is well on the way to being house trained. She is a real character,very clever, and so funny to watch and play with. We have not had so much laughter in the house for a very long time!Best regards,Bill

Hi Johanna,
She is a little treasure, The tiles in this photo are 18 inches long, so you can get an idea of her size. Everyone keeps commenting on how much she has grown since last week, or the last time they saw her. She enjoys her food, but some mornings, when we get back from her walk, she doesn’t want to know and will sometimes go without until tea time.
Everybody loves her, because she is always so pleased to see them. She is walking at the side of me now, on a loose lead. We have had two puppy socialising at the vets and all the little boys love her. She fell in the fish pond once, so we found she could swim.
I hope her little brothers and sisters are doing well.
Regards Chris Hole

Hi Johanna,

Hope you’re all well. Just though I’d send you a quick email to let you know how Red is getting on. He’s really grown and has settled in well. The kids love him and are helping out lots which is great. Within minutes of leaving the house someone stops us to stroke him, or remark how gorgeous he is – it’s lovely meeting lots of new people and Red seems super confident with strangers and other dogs alike.
He’s slept through from night 4 which is a huge bonus and I think we’re getting there with the house training. We’re doing lots of short walks, it’s a struggle to keep him out of the canal so there have been a couple of baths too but he just takes it all in his stride – so thanks for giving us such a well adjusted pup!
He can sit, stay, give us his paw. He knows down too.  We start puppy training classes this weekend so we’re all looking forward to that. Anyway I’ve attached a photo for you.
Kind regards, Alison, Mike, Oliver and Indi x

Hello Johanna,
I hope you are well. Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that Hank is doing great!!
We took him to his first puppy training class today and he was at a puppy party earlier in the week. When we go walking he always gets all the attention and everyone wants to say hello.
He can now sit, lay down, roll over and play fetch . He settles in his crate well and is 99% house trained. He is now up to 6.5kg so is getting a real handful.
Kind regards, David

Hi Johanna,We hope this finds you, the family, and the team all well?

Otis had his 3 month birthday yesterday so we thought we’d send you some pictures of the not so wee puppy.  We had a good day with lots of play and then a walk in the park where he gets to meet some of the other local dogs and dip his little legs into the brook (this amazes him!).
He’s doing really well as he grows and is now attending puppy classes as well as going on walks to meet local dogs that we know or that just live nearby. He’s a fantastic wee puppy and anyone who meets him, be they friends or strangers, always stop to give him fuss and comment on how cute and adorable he is followed by a marvel at how soft his coat is.
All the best, Stu, Kate & Otis

Hi Johanna

Please accept my sincere apologies for not emailing you sooner. Its 12 months since we collected Max from you and I cannot believe just how quickly time has gone! I had every good intention of emailing you months ago but I really wanted to sit and have time to do it properly and with two demanding children and a less demanding puppy I never seemed to have the chance. I hope you and your lovely family are all well and your new baby arrived safely.

Max was such a good boy on the journey home and preferred to sit and be held all the way back to his new house. He was into anything and everything but we dedicated all our time to him. We were consistent with training and went on some lovely courses and puppy parties which he really enjoyed.

Max is 14 months old now and we couldn’t imagine life without him, he is adored by everyone he meets and has quite the fan club! He is such a loving, happy, well behaved  little dog and loves his long walks, camping trips and treats of cheese and sausage. His favourite part of the day is snuggling with us on the sofa in the evening.

I have attached some photos. Please give max’s mummy and daddy a stroke from us and assure them he is being well looked after.
Lots of Love
Francine, Gary, Cameron, Analeigh & Max xx

Hello Johanna,
I hope you are well and enjoying the summer!
An update on Chester for you.. He is the most perfect, beautiful, funny and intelligent dog and fits in so perfectly with us!  He has graduated from puppy class, where he fell in love with ‘Nellie’ another Cockapoo half his age.. We have her number and have arranged for a few of us to stay in touch and meet up as the pups got on so well with Chester taking on the role of ‘Dad’!!
He has been visiting the grooming parlour every month to get used to sounds and goings on.. has a bath and blow dry and h his first mini haircut last time! He is going back for his summer trim next week before going in for the dreaded ‘snip’. He has the softest waviest beautiful coat that you cannot stop stroking!!
He has been such a comfort to me especially the last month as I had to undergo emergency breast surgery, when I returned home, he knew that he had to be gentle and just stayed by my side.. Such a calming manor we love him to bits.
He still has the ‘cheeky’ Chester side in full swing too.. and certainly keeps us on our toes and can be the most stubborn creature at times, he loves being outside come rain or shine and the dirtier he can get the happier he is!!
We just thrive on his zest for life.. It’s infectious.
We still sometimes wish we had taken 2 from you especially when we see him playing with other dogs, who knows.. Maybe one day!!
I’ve attached some photos for you!
Have a great summer and will update you again in couple of months ( and thank you again for giving us this amazing adorable puppy)
Kindest Regards
Vanessa, Chester & family xx

Hi Johanna ,
Just thought you’d like to see some photos of Buddy with his buddy , Bertie !
It’s difficult to take a good pic of him as he moves so quickly ! The photo of him sitting under Bertie was taken today , it’s a favourite position!
He adores Bertie , follows him ( and me) everywhere and now is becoming interested in the cats .
I take him on the lead down our road which is a private road and so quiet … He’s good !
Looking forward to longer walks next week when he can socialise properly.

Ted is gorgeous isn’t he, favourite part of my day is coming down to see him in the morning, I love him more than I ever thought it was possible to love anything.
We’ve met a cockapoo puppy who lives around the corner, he is just a week older than Ted but a bit smaller, but you should see them playing together, they are so funny, it’s like he’s back with his brothers and sisters!!
Will keep you posted on Ted’s progress – he cocked his leg for the first time to pee yesterday!!! Haha!
Look forward to seeing you all again next year to get Ted a friend! One of the nurses/receptionist took down your details the other day, her son is looking for a cockapoo and she was so impressed with Ted 🙂

Hi Johanna,

I love looking through my hundreds of pictures of Alfie! I couldn’t decide on just one picture, so I picked out three! If you are wondering who the other dog is in the photos, that is Ruby. They are great friends, and love playing together.  Alfie is the best thing that happened to us in a long time. He loves the outdoors, and he loves playing with the ball! He is always a bundle of joy, and he is always happy! He is a real member of the family now, and we all love and adore him! Thank you for bringing him into our lives!
Fond Regards,
Aisling

Hi Johanna,
Just wanted to share with you this handsome, intelligent and confident little boy you have given us at the age of 12 weeks!
Last night he slept from 9.45pm until 6.30am!
He is more than we could ever have imagined and hoped for. He certainly keeps us entertained and is a cheeky inquisitive rascal…but we wouldn’t have him any other way.
Thank you from a very smitten family!!

Hope you’re well and have been enjoying the good weather.
Thanks so much for raising such an adorable puppy.

Just thought I would drop you a quick message to let you know Bailey is doing brilliantly, he has grown so much and looks like a teddy bear, we must get him groomed soon! He has such a happy nature and everyone loves him when they meet him! He loves going for walks and loves his food too.He has quickly become part of the family. He can be quite mischievous, he loves stealing socks from the clothes rack and gets the paper recycling out on the patio all the time! He knows what he is allowed to do and what he shouldn’t do … And he looks at you as he is doing what he shouldn’t! But a firm no and he does stop!
I hope your baby is doing well now

Thank you for bringing him into our lives!

Hi Johanna & Eve

I just thought I’d send you a few pictures of little Jess. She’s settled in very well and everyone comments on how lovely she is (of course!). She’s just finished her puppy socialisation classes and she passed with flying colours. Her last weigh-in was 6Kg, so she has more than trebled her weight in the 10 weeks or so that she’s taken over our home!
It was evident to us early on that she was raised very well – she’s not not scared of anything, and she loves everyone she meets. She’s a very happy little pup!
She loves her walks in the New Forest and running around the fields closer to home. You can see a few photos on the link below…
Fiona is definitely her best friend in the world… apart from my occasional jealousy over that, she’s perfect 😉
I hope you’re both well and thanks again for our new family member.
Jason and Fiona

Hi Johanna

We had Baileys vet check today and the nurse commented on what a lovely healthy pup he is and what an amazing temperament he had for a pup of his age. She said he was exceptionally well socialised already seeing how good he was with the other vets and strangers he was around.
He also had his first puppy training session now too and when he came back he was so exhausted he fell asleep and didn’t move again all night! He has slept through the last few nights and didn’t whine or wimper at all going in his crate last night so it’s amazing to see the progress in just a few days. Just wanted to let you know, especially as the vet said he must have come from very good breeders! Thanks Tracey

Hi Johanna,

Eddie is doing really well he’s settled in great and we can’t imagine not having him now. He still likes his sleep but while his awake he gets into mischief. I’ve attached some photos of him including one of him spoiled at my mums with all his toys.

Many thanks Becky

Hi Johanna, just an update on our lovely Chicco and perhaps for your website. He’s now nearly 6mths old. He’s adorable. Still quite small, beautiful soft and fluffy coat. Never makes a sound. Sleeps very well and completely potty trained. He’s a dream come true. I wish we’d bought his brother or a sister now! Catherine,Darren,Jessa and Lottie xx

Hi Johanna,
I hope you and the family are well. I thought I would take a moment and let you know how the two rascals are getting on. We can’t believe they are 9 months old already, it’s hard to think of life before they arrived. They get on so well, it’s been an absolute delight having the two, they are great companions. Mac is a real dope! – very loving and always up to mischief, he has a passion for socks and will even raid the ironing basket for a prized possession! Maisy is a little more independent but just as loving and will jump on your lap for a cuddle and keep pawing at you if you stop stroking her before she’s had enough. Both enjoy savaging the post if I don’t get to the door before them! In fact last week they shredded and ate a very important document! Quite embarrassing having to go back and ask for copies. We are often down at the coast with them where they love to run on the beach and just lately have ventured into the sea which they seem to like. The smell of wet dog is not so attractive though!!
Best regards

You clearly are a star maker.Ill also be putting someone else in contact with you shortly.

I just wanted to send a couple of photos of ruby. She’s utterly gorgeous and we get stopped all the time for people to make a fuss of her. Ava and ruby are the best of friends and follow each other everywhere. She’s such a good girl, settled in amazingly well and is learning what’s right and wrong. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be her owners, we absolutely adore her.Have a very merry Xmas and a happy new year. Love Emma, Charlie, Ava and ruby!

Dear Johanna ,Just a quick note now that Tilly has had her 1st birthday! I have added 3 of our latest photos for your see our dear sweet barking mad happy little dog!!
She is an absolute joy and you may notice that we have had her clipped short the last photo should give you a clue as to why. Being as she ‘ helps’ every morning with the mucking out you can imagine after an hour to hour and a half what sort of a wet soggy mess she was coming in like and it was getting too cold to hose her off every morning so we decided over the winter months to clip her back and put a coat on if necessary.
Wishing you and your family all the very best for a very Happy Christmas and just to say that you are still always welcome to see Tilly, she may not be the cleanest but she would still be pleased to see you as she loves everyone!!
Kind regards Cheryl

Oh he’s such a great little puppy, he slept well all night and only whimpered a little bit at 6am when I think he spotted Evie wandering about. I’ve had to drag Evie to gymnastics this morning she didn’t want to leave him, David’s enjoying some one on one with Charlie, Charlie has been great the way he has settled in, he’s made such an impact already he makes us all smile and laugh so much. Evie said when she saw him ‘ I know my life was good before but my life is going to be so much better now’ Best Wishes Heidi x

Hi Johanna, A Dill update.
She is a much admired dog . Especially since her coat has gone 2 tone! She looks as though her fur has been sun bleached. She is still full of fun and has made lots of friends in Bristol. Any news on her siblings? Best Wishes Ann -Marie

Hi Johanna,

Thank you again for all your help and advice with Toby. He is settling in nicely into his new home and we love playing with him and taking him for walks around our village. He has a great playful personality and loves to be around people. He is taking puppy classes at the moment and is doing very well (when he isn’t distracted by other puppies and toys!!)
All the best to you and your family. Please give Alfie and Summer big hugs from us!
Cheers, Katie and Beat

He is doing great at dog training and is taking his silver award next week.  He really is a delightful boy,  fantastic temperament and such fun. We have had a couple of weeks away with him in Devon and the Lakes and he certainly gets everyone talking to us!  So glad we found him. Hope you and your family are all well.

Bella and her parents.

Hi Johanna”Just wanted to let you know I’m getting on very well.
Went on a six week puppy course and came first in performing a fun trick! Have been on a cockapoo walk today there was over 20 dogs and I was off lead a few times as getting more confident.
It’s getting cold now so I like lying by the fire!” ~Bella”Thank you so much for all your help, advice and for finding us the most beautiful puppy you have been fantastic. We love bella so much she’s very funny, sweet and loving

A Best friend in Bella…

Hi Johanna

Bella is now 8 months old and thriving. She loves being groomed ( they say she’s a dream and so placid!) she’s very loving and loves other dogs. Everyone says how beautiful she is and so friendly. Getting easier to train and comes back when called on our wood walks. My daughter had a best friend that she always wanted. She loves to cuddle up in the evening and I would totally recommend this breed to anyone. She never moults or smells either! Always s bonus!
Thanks so much for breeding such a loving and faithful doggy. Will send you some recent pics

Best wishes
Sam Kevin and Molly Geehan x

Life With Lulu

Hi Johanna,We just wanted to say thank you so much for our gorgeous girl, Lulu – and also to give you a quick update now that she is five months old. In short – she’s a star! A beautiful, spirited, funny, affectionate, friendly and clever girl who loves every person and animal she meets. She just loves life and is so much fun to be around!Lulu and our daughter have become inseparable – the best of friends and partners in crime to much mischief! Both know exactly how to employ big, brown, “it wasn’t me!” eyes. We go to weekly puppy classes – but to be honest, Lulu seems to have booked that into her diary primarily as a social event and a chance to catch up with friends!!Lulu is every bit as beautiful as Zara with the joie de vivre of Alfie! We love her completely and forever (even when we are chasing her around the house and garden trying to retrieve stolen socks, underwear and shoes – a game she enjoys so much more than we do…)We are so grateful and happy to have Lulu as part of our family. We made 100% the right decision choosing our puppy from you – thank you…We hope that you and your family are well and we send special hugs and kisses to Zara and Alfie!Many, many thanks,Kathryn, Ian and Eleanor xxxx

A Quick Hello from Twyla and Family…

Hi Johanna, not emailed for a while so thought I would send you a couple of up to date photos of our gorgeous girl.
Still going to dog training classes which both of us enjoy and made some great friends.  I can’t recommend enough for people to do the same it’s been so beneficial to us, and we have now moved up to junior classes.
We all went caravanning to cornwall for 2 weeks in the summer holidays which Twyla enjoyed, we couldn’t believe how many black cockapoos were down south! Everyone stopped to say hello and admire Twyla .
Anyway hope you and the family are all keeping well, I keep looking on you web site for new puppies, would love a play pal for Twyla someday!Lots of love Helen and Twyla x

A pupdate from Murphy’s mummy and daddy…

Hi JohannaJust wanted to give you our first week report.  In a nutshell, he is a complete star and we are so in love with him! He is so very bright too- He seems very happy and well adjusted, The vet has given him a full clean bill of health so we have nothing to worry about! We went into our local town centre today (obviously carrying Murphy) and he was an instant hit and loved all the attention, his tail wagging continuously.  We even had an offer from someone who wanted to buy him and an old lady who said he was just like a “teddy bear”!
Thank you so much for allowing us to have this great addition to our family.  We hope all the siblings are settling in equally well.  Thought you might like to see a couple of photos …
Kind Regards, Mo, Nick & Murphy! X

A Little Note from Caspar’s mummy…

“Hi Johanna

I wanted to give you an update on his ‘ lordship ‘ !
Little did we know , although your comment about him being ‘special’ gave an indication, of just what a wonderful character Caspar would be. He is a very very bright boy and fearless into the bargain. He is still as loving as when you first showed him to us. The looks deep into my eyes melts my heart. He is giving Lulah a bit of a testing time with his increasing strength and vigour but she is managing to keep him under control ….just ! He never hurts her just pushes her around a bit as she is such a gentle animal. We are letting them get on with it as it’s good for her to have her boundaries expanded. She loves him and if he disappears on one of his forages in the garden, she’s the first to go looking for him ( the thing about ‘ missing the pain when it stops ‘ comes to mind !)
Anyway that’s just a short note to let you know how well he’s doing and another chance to say thanks for being the excellent dog breeder ( and human !) you are.
Hope all is well with you and the family. I hope the new upholstery business is starting to take off. Perhaps you will be on Dragons Den soon ?
I will send some photos when he is fully mature so you can see how he has turned out. Everyday is a joy with him.
Best wishes
Sue DeanXXXX”
Charming Charlie
“Hi Johanna
Thought you may like this photograph of Charlie now 8 months old! He had his first hair cut today I have taken the photo as I know he will not look like this for long, he is attracted to any thing wet, muddy and smelly! He has turned into a very clever, mischievous, adorable little boy. Every time we go out people comment about his beautiful colouring and what a handsome boy he is, we all love him to bits
Keep up the good work!
Best wishes to you and your family

Twyla

We are all great and just thought I would keep you up to date on Twyla’s progress.

She is adorable and we all love her to bits! She had her second injection so now going out for regular walks, although she isn’t walking too far yet and tends to keep sitting down and trying to turn back. We have her booked in for a nursery check at our local vets this Friday so hope they advise she is in good health and doing well.

She really has settled in and we are all in a nice routine with her, she even expects to come on our bed in the morning after we let her out for a wee about 6 am, then it’s a treat and she runs upstairs to our bedroom! Cheeky monkey. Still has sharp teeth and nips quite hard when she is playing, so we do ‘time out’ which stops her and hopefully she is getting the idea not to nip.

Erin helped bath her for her first bath since we brought her home last Sunday afternoon which went really well. She seemed to like it and didn’t complain too much.

Twyla is sitting to command and giving us her paw for treats. She is fetching and we are working on the words ‘leave and stay’. 
Erin thinks its really funny when Twyla runs off energy around the garden and house. We all laugh when she does this.

So all is going well and very happy.

Lots of love and keep in touch. Helen x

“They get on really well; here they are whilst we were preparing tea tonight.
Ruby loves to play fight too so it is not all easy going for Alf..
They love each other’s company and are great fun.”

A Testimonial from Amber’s family:

“I hope you are all well. This is just to send you some photos of Amber. She is doing really well, is about 12.5 inches tall and 6kg in weight and is an absolute joy. She’s very sociable, wants to meet every person and every dog she sees. The first 3 photos were taken in the last couple of weeks, the others in December so hopefully you can see how she’s progressing and how gorgeous she is”

“Hi Johanna
Just a quick note to let you know how Pip is getting on!
As you can see from the photos she is growing so fast and loving her first few walks! She couldn’t believe the beach though wasn’t sure about getting her toes wet! She remains unbelievably tolerant and patient with the children, she is just so chilled!
She is well on the way to mastering sit and usually comes to her name, though not tried it on a walk yet!
Thanks again for giving us such a lovely new family member
Kind regards
Jo”

“just a quick email to say the weekend at York went great with Twyla. She loved it and was so well behaved. Plenty of walks and attention. We even walked into York centre which was heaving with people shopping, I was a bit worried that Twyla would be jumping up at everyone, but she was so good and just stayed right by my side. We even met another family with a Cockapoo in the market square, a little girl 9 mths old called Rosie. They were so funny together and were play fighting with each other. I lost count of the people that stopped us to fuss Twyla and comment on her.”

“Hi JohannaI just thought I would update you on Bailey. He is growing fast and an absolute delight. We all love him dearly, he has a very big personality for a little chap. He has completely won over our collie cross Jess and loves playing with her. He is mischievous and loves to chew (especially my rugs!) but is brilliant with our young grandchildren.We can’t thank you enough for this very welcome addition to our family.It is difficult to catch him still long enough to take a photo, but I attach the best I could do.”

“SCOOBY has settled very well.
He seems very happy sleeping well at night with no crying, loves playing with the girls and enjoys his special time with Jools and I once the kids are in bed.
The house is now well and truly his.

But the real reason I’m writing is to say a huge thank you!
We took SCOOBS to the vet today for his second jab, (which went well), and the vet was very complimentary of you as a breeder, Zara, Alfie and SCOOBY.  “He’s very handsome, heathy and obviously of good stock” were her words
