It seems hard to believe that little Basil is now a year old. Time for a little photo story of his first year I think.....

Basil was born on 4th June 2011. He was one of a litter of 10 pups born to beautiful Molly. There was a huge range of colours in her litter: Black, chocolate, blonde, black and white parti, chocolate and white parti and chocolate roan.

A stunning range of colours. I love the blonde half way down on the right hand side. Looks just like a little lamb!
In June 2011, just as Rufus turned two years old, we put a deposit down with Jukee Doodles for a second Cockapoo. Given the popularity of JD's pups we wanted to get in high on the list for a Spring/Summer 2012 puppy. I believe we were second on the list and delighted that we really would have the choice of pretty much any puppy we wanted. Towards the end of July Jukee Doodles posted photographs of the remaining available puppies on their website. The top photograph was of a stunning black and white boy. 'Bumble' was going to be a JD "keeper" as they loved everything about this puppy - colour and character and as a result he had not been out for the selection days. At the last minute JD decided to release him for sale. I was on the phone immediately.  We met Basil (Bumble) on the way up to our holiday in the Lake District at 9 weeks old and collected him on our way home at 10 weeks old!

This photo was taken of Basil at 9 weeks old when we dropped in to Jukee Doodles to meet him and confirm our purchase. I think we took about three seconds to confirm!

This photo really shows Basil's glorious colour. He is black and white parti with loads of ticking. I adored the white tip on his left ear which has now pretty much disappeared.

At 10 weeks old we picked up Basil on our way back from holiday.

One very relaxed pup!

Fun in the park.

Did someone say rain? Finding a use for Zoe Greyhound.

Basil finally got Rufus to accept him after just two and a half days.
Picture
Basil does have his own bed but does like to share with Rufus whenever possible!
Picture
Chair too small for two? Of course not!
Picture
I give Basil his first clip at 9 months old.
Picture
Basil decides to trim his own right ear! I never found any hair so he must have swallowed it!

Happy First Birthday my gorgeous boy!
