Recently I've been quite taken with a cavoodle puppy on Instagram called "Toby Wigglebottom". He's very cute and his owners post a daily photo of him and comments as though Toby is talking. It's so cute and Toby reminds me of when our Charlie was a puppy. I totally understand why they call their puppy "Toby Wigglebottom". When our dog, Charlie wags his tail more than half is body is caught up in the wag. It's so adorable. He does an excited little dance.
Just so my little dog doesn't get jealous of my affection for Toby, here are some photos of the Lilyfield Life cavoodle, Charlie.
4 weeks old - when we chose him from the litter
The day we brought him home
A couple of months old and oh so cute!
He still sits like this with one leg tucked underneath
Much loved (and man-handled) by my kids
He's about a year old below here and very scruffy!
He's 3 years old now and looking much more respectable. I sometimes get him shaved but I don't like how it makes him look very skinny and poodle-like. I prefer to just trim him with the scissors and keep him slightly fluffy.
He's so easy to have around and obedient. He's a little shy of other dogs at first but so friendly to humans. I really recommend cavoodles as a breed. They don't shed and are hypo-allergenic. They are easily trained and intelligent and importantly they don't yap and aren't neurotic like some small dogs.
At the vet last week for his annual health check
He also loves a spot in the sun or a snuggle on the couch.
I'd have to say that I'm not really a dog person overall but I really love Charlie. Actually it quite surprises me how much I love him! I wasn't expecting that when we bought him. He's such good company. He loves walking with me in the mornings, he lies patiently besides me when I paint and snuggles up to me on the couch at night when I relax. At night he sleeps on the floor next to my side of the bed. He does snore at times but it doesn't wake me up - it does wake Phil up though...and if that happens Charlie finds himself sleeping in the hallway!
