We never went searching for a third dog. Mr Cooper found us, and what a lucky find he made. He was not an easy dog. He came with damage, fear and baggage. We spent money and time to bring him out of his shell. In a strange way, his joy and his affection meant more because they were so hard won.
This is why he got a brand new squeaky ball every single morning. It was the first thing we found that gave him joy. SUCH JOY! And so we decided that for about $1 a day, he should have that kind of joy.
There are many stories to share of our life with Mr Cooper. But today we mourn the loss of that life together. Today, we celebrate that life we had together. Together is what we were with Cooper, like a third arm, every place we went, and every room in the house, there he was.
Please enjoy a small portion of the love and joy Cooper brought to our lives.
