It only feels like yesterday that the Big Man and I went and picked up our tiny little puppy Cooper. I still remember it so clearly. I had finally convinced the Big Man to let me have a puppy and I was ecstatic! We were able to choose between three puppies, a sweet little girl, a shy and nervous boy and a super boisterous boy. I let the Big Man have the final say and he decided on the super boisterous, confident little boy. Cooper!
I have been in love with Cooper since the minute we chose him. It hasn't always been smooth sailing though. Over the last two years we have had quite a few challenges, 12 months of toilet training, separation anxiety, a liking for eating his own poop, a shoe fetish and many more. However in the last 2 months it seems like everything has finally fallen into place with Cooper, he has really settled down. The other day we were actually able to let him off the lead whilst we were walking and he stayed on his best behavior the entire time. He seems to be a lot calmer as well and he hasn't had an accident in the house for over 6 weeks. A miracle!
Although it feels like only yesterday that we bought him home, on the other hand I can't remember what life was like before we adopted Cooper. He is one of the best decisions that we ever made and I love him more than I ever imagined that I could!
Happy Birthday Cooper.
