My favourite thing about Indie is...

Indie is the perfect combination of playful and cuddly - she comes into bed and joins us in the morning (7am like clockwork!), nuzzles and cuddles... then numerous times a day she dashes around the flat, toy-obsessed and could play fetch or tug of war for hours! Shes loves going on walks and is great off the lead - going up to people to say a friendly hello but coming back for a treat at the end!

The biggest challenge with Indie is...

Although very confident with people, and loves the *idea* of bounding up to dogs on walks and saying hello, when she approaches she then becomes very submissive! Although not initially scared, if the other dog is more boisterous or not sensitive to the fact she's subsequently upside down with her tummy on show, she can get trampled on! With dogs she knows and is familiar with, there are no issues.

The most surprising thing about owning a King Charles Spaniel & Poodle (Miniature) is...

How different they are to their 'more popular' cousin (cockerpoo!). Cavapoos tend to be calmer, a little more cuddly but equally not as robust for those longer walks.

What I wish I’d known about King Charles Spaniels & Poodles (Miniature) is...

For both cava and cockerpoos, it's important to remember that depending on what size poodle (mini, toy, standard, giant!) it'll huge impact the size of the breed when older. Try and meet both dog parents before purchasing so you can visualise how big the pup will be :) also litters can vary hugely too! So assess how big your puppy is vs. the others in the litter.
