So I’ve photographed Cockapoo Molly before at my Somerset studio, close to Bridgwater. Click on this link to see Molly’s portraits Molly’s Gallery. She is such a sweet girl, but this time it was her sister Lola’s turn to shine, and she did a brilliant job sitting in the diffrent props and posing. Molly and Lolas mum wanted a picture with them both together and some portraits of Lola that would match Molly’s photo shoot. Lola is a pretty Cockapoo with black and white markings but a bit smaller then her sister Molly. Both dogs are very smart and have lovely temperaments. Lola does like to lick and kiss other dogs – she wants to be buddies with all of them! She also go some awesome toys – that completely match her coat. Have a look at some of my favorite portraits below.
I was very interested to find out more about cockapoo – in the last few years they have gotten very popular and been branded “the first designer dog”.
Some interesting facts about cockapoo’s
~A Cockapoo is a cross between an American or English cocker spaniel and poodle. In most cases miniature or toy poodle. The first cockapoo was breed in the 1960’s and when breeders saw the success the cockapoo had, cross-breeding with other pedigrees started.
~Cockapoo can vary in colour. They can be one solid colour or they can have very complex markings. The most common colours of Cockapoos are black, tan, red, brown, sable, cream, white, brindle, and beige. Some Cockapoos have spots or freckles, which is called ticking. They can also have a speckled coat, which means that there are random portions where the colour is diluted. The colouring of the dog has a great deal to do with the colour of both of his parents.
~Cockapoos are Very Smart. Cocker spaniels and poodles are both intelligent breeds, therefore, their offspring are going to be very intelligent as well. These dogs can be trained to act on command, do tricks, and they can be trained very easily.
~Cockapoos is an active dog, they love to run and play and you’ll have long lived pet. Expectancy of a Cockapoo is between 14 and 18 years old if cared for appropriately.
