Dogging! Well, puppying!

Finally got my boy a couple of weeks ago, now I'm an ardent dogger!

He's a brown cocker we named Bruno.
Pic on the left is at 8 weeks, on the right at 12 weeks.
We collected him at 11 weeks from a breeder in Germany, as our search of CH proved fruitless. He's a smashing little boy, and so far has been on the bus, tram and Basel flea market with no issues.
He needs a minute while weighing up other dogs, but then is all over them.
He's making good a good impression with the natives, everyone loves a puppy!

Re: Dogging! Well, puppying!

Oh, what a charmer!

I love the butter-wouldn't-melt face, despite indisputable evidence of plant-eating. Puppyhood at it's best.

Wishing you and your new friend much happiness together!

Re: Dogging! Well, puppying!

Hey, he's finally arrived! Congratulations on the new member of the family.

Yes, I agree with what other's have said too… That look is a killer! Be prepared to be totally manipulated by those "Dackelblick".

Re: Dogging! Well, puppying!

Thanks for all the generous comments, he really is scrumptious.
He was in Basel at lunchtime, and we were stopped every few yards by admirers. He also had a couple of nose to nose encounters with other spaniels that went very well.
I'll take a liberty and post one more pic of him and my dahlia, pre-deforestation.

Re: Dogging! Well, puppying!

Bruno is adorable! As I've mentioned to a few others I'm envious of your four pawed companion! I hope you all enjoy a fabulous start to the summer!


ps. I don't want to rain on your parade but if you haven't owned dogs before or haven't owned them and had plants or a garden you must take care of what plants they get into nibble or eat. Here is a link from the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) that has a list of TOXIC and non toxic plants to be aware of. https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/anima...n-toxic-plants

I THINK dahlias might be considered mildly toxic so ya might need to move it to higher ground.

Thanks for the heads up, his mum moved everything away apart from a lavender, I'll check it out.

Re: Dogging! Well, puppying!

Bruno is finding the weather a bit much. He does like the stone floor though, and airing his bits and pieces.

Re: Dogging! Well, puppying!

He has a girlfriend.
I think he could do better for himself, but love is blind.
