Jumper’s proud parents

By Jacklyn Yeong

Jumper the cavoodle was extra delighted for his walk as his “mum” had just arrived home from a month-long holiday.

The Cavalier King Charles and poodle mix was happy and contented with the presence of both his parents, Corrie and Dave, by his side. They explained that Jumper always knew when they were heading off to his favourite location – the botanical gardens.

“He gets extra alert and a little too excited when we fill his water bottle and take out his special ball,” Corrie said. “He jumps around and impatiently whines if you take a minute longer to get ready.”

However, when approached by other dogs, Jumper always behaves calmly even when off-leash. This is one of his traits that Corrie is proud of.

“Jumper never barks or pounces on other dogs. He just stays quietly by our sides,” Corrie said. “However, he was pretty badly bitten once. That is why we are extra careful now, even with dogs that don’t look threatening.”

When asked about tips on his fluffy maintenance, his parents shared that they showered Jumper once every two weeks and brushed him every day.
