Throwback Thursday – Lucca

Meet Lucca, the star of this week’s throwback Thursday. We caught up with mum Emma, to find out more about this perfect pooch.


‘Lucca – (KC name is Julbella Cheeky Monkey).’

Why did you choose this name?

‘Lucca is named after our favourite Tuscan town. His KC name was given to him by his breeder.’

How old is Lucca?

‘He is 3 and a half years old.’

What breed is Lucca?

‘Cocker Spaniel’.

Why did you choose this breed?

‘My parents had a Cocker Spaniel as I was growing up, so I knew the breed well. Small enough for our terraced house but active enough for nice long walks.’

How old was Lucca when he joined your family?

‘He was just 8 weeks old.’

Where did you get Lucca from?

‘A reputable KC registered breeder.’

Favourite food – ‘Chicken’

Favourite human – ‘Mummy aka ‘giver of treats’’

Favourite toy – ‘Bouncy ball and Green Dragon’

Loves – ‘Long awesome walkies’

Hates – ‘The window cleaner, the Bulldog from down the road, and the old man who walks past the house every day.’

Any quirks? – ‘On Sunday’s he refuses to eat his breakfast until I cook up scrambled egg for him. Only on a Sunday, never any other day of the week. And while it is cooking, he sits patiently and waits!’

If you could have any other breed, what would it be?

‘Hubby would like a Golden Retriever, but I like the idea of having a traditionally British breed or a rarer breed like a Field Spaniel, Red and White Setter, Otterhound or Irish Water Spaniel.’

Little Lucca has his own Instagram page so can follow his adventures. Give him a follow @awesomewalkieswithlucca.
