We currently own two Cockapoos, Evie and Jess. Evie is the mother of Jess, the one we kept from her first litter. Evie is an excellent Mum, although she is glad to pack her offspring's bags when they reach 8 weeks and wave them off to their new homes. Evie seems equally at home watching TV with us as she is running around the fields, and is a very attached and loving dog. She has a very expressive range of facial expressions, gestures and vocalisations, and it's never difficult to know what she is feeling or thinking.
Jess is a very placid, friendly dog, and is never happier than when ensconced on someone's lap. She shares many of her mother's modes of communication, particularly the strategically placed paw when she wishes to attract your attention.
