A Year in the Life...

...of a very special boy. This week's Dogs on Thursday post is about Cooper. Saturday will be the first anniversary of the day that Cooper found us. How can that be? This year has just flown by.

Cooper, goofy Cooper.
Pretending to be so innocent!

When really he is very naughty.
Very, very naughty!But he is quite the dashing gentleman.And such a snuggler!
Since it has been a whole year, Mr. Cooper got to go in the C-A-R for an R-I-D-E to the V-E-T. Actually, there is no need to spell in front of Cooper. Unlike Emma and Tara, Cooper has no clue what his crazy humans are talking about most of the time. Anyway, it was time for ten-year-old Cooper's first-year check up and he thoroughly enjoyed his car ride.
He was also very brave when he got his needle in the hiney, and since he was such a good boy, he got treated to an extra car ride. He got to visit my workplace! Truthfully, I needed to fax something, so Cooper really didn't have a choice, but he was very good just the same. He was a big hit with everyone at work, and got lots of treats, then wandered around emptying the trash cans looking for anything else to eat. He's quite the scavenger! After that, we stopped at McDonald's and Cooper got cheeseburgers to take home and share with his sisters. He is such a good boy! I can't imagine what we ever did without him!

Cooper says, "All I really want is a nap..."

Happy Anniversary, Cooper. It looks like he enjoyed his special day with treats he didn't have to share.

Happy Forever Homecoming, Cooper.
Sometimes the ones who find us are the best

Well, it looks like Cooper thinks he owns that backseat. I'm sure he thought that whatever happened to him was a small price to pay for a great bag of burgers!

Ok - I love the dishwasher picture. I have one like that too, except I swear her eyes were saying "No, really I am helping YOU by licking these plates in here."

It's hard to believe it's been a year. He looks happy to have you all as a family and I know you all are happy to have him.

Stephanie said...

He's ten years old? For real? He has such a puppy face.

You are lucky to have found eachother. :)
