We ask Dylan the Cockapoo, and Debbie, his human the famous 7 Wagging World Questions about their lives in Wivenhoe, Essex, UK.
About Debbie: Life with Dylan my cockapoo is special. I retired from work early due to ill health – at least that’s my excuse! When working I was an administrator at a University. As my husband and I were both at home the time was perfect for us to finally get a dog to share our lives.
So at 10 weeks old, Dylan a chocolate Cockapoo – an adorable fluff bundle – came to live with us. He came to me as a birthday present from my lovely husband. He is nearly 4 years old now and I totally adore him. I love all (well nearly all) dogs and could never ever hurt one. He is a friendly, sensitive soul who just loves people and most other dogs, although not all. I don’t think he sees himself as a dog!
I have been quite poorly and my husband has been taking him for most of his walks. I try and go in the afternoons with them. Many happy hours are spent at our beach hut, namely called “Dylan’s Den”. He has been so lovely and understanding throughout my recovery, often staying with me. He makes me smile every day. He’s also good at keeping secrets!
He loves his food and lets us know when it’s his dinner-tine! We all enjoy games that involve him finding treats. This little furry has enriched our lives and I couldn’t imagine life without him in it.
