Updated photo of our mini-golden

We've had Libby for just over a year. We adopted her as a 4 year old. Have loved every second of it.

She's a cute cocker mix.

A lot of the cocker mixes out there (cockapoos, etc) are hit or miss. They don't always turn out that well + they get pretty fat thanks to their owners.

The people out there who are very careful about feeding their small dogs - it's amazing how little the dogs are fed!

Took a class with a woman with a lovely cockapoo (I do see some very sweet and pretty ones out there that are more cocker than the rest of the mix) - and holy crow. The amount of kibble the dog got in a meal was a mouthful for my guys!

I guess this is an extra note to be careful with the amount of food and weight. A lot of little dogs (mixed or whatever) get so fat. It's pretty sad to see.

Hi Megora! Hmmm... she has put on a few pounds. How does one go about figuring out how to safely trim her down? She is active, one hour a walk per day, but does stay sedentry the rest of the day.

The photo in reply #161 is a terrible photo-shop job.

Just look at the woman's left shoulder/arm and how it goes around the dog in the photo. Almost looks like an entire person (a man?) was cut out from that picture. I've read this thread and I know that a person asked for photos of the dog and this is what was provided.

Even one alteration of an image is enough to convince me that the whole image is not to be trusted. If I cannot trust the image then I cannot trust the person who posted that image.

What?

Hmmm. Not really sure what folks are trying to suggest about photo. My husband and I are celebrating 25 years of marriage this year and thought we'd have photos taken. Our dog cooperated for some of the photos...not so much for others. We had a lovely 12th grader take photos for us on the beach to be dispalyed at our anniversary party. Am happy to recommend her to others who are in the Vancouver area and looking for a photographer. I will post a few more in case someone is looking for this service (you can DM me if you want her name/number).

No dog in this photo...but the photographer's skills are showcased. Again, happy to provide her contact info.
