Pet of the Week: Manic Merlin has won treats keep energy up
COCKAPOO Merlin is this week's Frome Standard Pet of the Week.
He is owned by the Baker family and is 14 months old and is a cross between a cocker spaniel and a poodle.
His owner Sue Baker said: "Merlin is a ball of energy and very springy, he loves nothing more than jumping and walking on his back legs.
"He loves eating everything except his own food, eight pairs of shoes, two mobiles, socks and underwear, in fact all his toys end up being munched as well.

"He is actually quite clever and we tried agility which he showed a lot of promise - it was me who couldn't keep up.
"He has totally won over my husband who never wanted a dog. He is the most gentle, cuddly, funny, playful pup. In fact he is quite well known in the dog world of Frome because of his amiable personality and also his awesome coat.
"He is my daughter's best friend and play mate and she has enjoyed showing him at some local shows.
"All up, he is manic Merlin with a heart of gold."
