Murphy from Shropshire


New Member
Morning all,
We have recently added this little bundle to our family :)- Blue roan Show Cocker by the name of Murphy. We picked him up at 8 weeks and 4 days old, he has been with us for 4 days and already knows his name. He has settled in really well, doing what puppies do, playing, teething, sleeping, repeat !.
Does anyone have any help / advice on getting through the night ?. Thought our sleepless nights were done 17yr's ago :rolleyes::)

His colour has changed already - when we first picked him up-

Today -

We lost our 12 yr old Cocker 'Louis' very recently from Spleen tumours, went down hill very fast although we knew he had a heart murmur for the last 3 yrs, it still came as a massive and upsetting shock. :cry:

Welcome Steve, to you and Murphy, and I'm sorry for your loss of Louis, he was a beauty.

Welcome Steve and Murphy. I’m sure it will take Murphy a while to adjust to his new home. Not sure if you’re crating him but it might help. Try to keep a consistent sleep schedule and environment. Wind things down before bed time so he’s calm and ready for sleep.
