Gonna Miss The Bike Blessing

The biggest Bike Blessing of the year is usually the one put on by the Blue Knights.

It was the first ride Cooper ever did when he was a puppy.

This year we will miss it because we will be in Maine on another ride.  

We can’t be everywhere… even though we wish we could do both events.

Spear Of Freedom Spaghetti Dinner

The events we love to go to are beginning.  Summer will be busy.

This isn’t a ride but a spaghetti dinner/fund raiser.

Cooper was the perfect gentleman as usual.  He had his own chair which always works best.

It's Chilly With No Hair

We were meeting friends at a Dunkin Donuts.  It was a really nice day but in the shade it was a little chilly.  Cooper usually has a whole lot of hair to keep him warm but recently had his hair cut.

I always keep a towel in my car for Cooper’s wet feet if it’s been raining.

This time it worked perfectly as a blanket.  It was just what he needed to stop him from shivering.

After A Shower

There we are…  all washed out.

Here’s the color he will be till it fades and we have to do it again in a month or two.

 He looks so good!

I love this look for Cooper.  It really is the Cooper everyone expects to see.

Time For The Blue Doo

It’s that time of the year.

I had already cut all Cooper’s hair off his body, just leaving the Mop Top.

And I brushed out his mop top a while ago.

So the next step is the Blue Doo to achieve Cooper’s Signature Look.

It’s not easy being a celebrity.

Car Lounging

Eventually Cooper conned Wedgie into helping him get up on the car.

It turned out he wanted to go up there to lay in the sun for a nap.

 He got comfortable and let out a big exhale.

I think he may have actually fallen asleep for a while.

Car Peek

We were all spending the day outside.

Cooper likes to be up high so he can see better.

He was trying to figure out how to get up on my car.

He was even asking me to help.  This is the look of, ‘Mama, PLEASE!’

Cooper was in bad need of a hair cut.

I looked ahead in the weather to see if it will stay warm enough for him to get a hair cut.

It will be warm so I cut his hair.  SO much better.

I don’t know what makes Alex so funny.

But it seems that when we’re together I laugh non stop!

Visited My Aunt and Uncle

A couple years ago we went to visit my aunt and uncle.

They has dogs, which Cooper loved!

He was thrilled to get to be ‘near’ them.

But he didn’t want to get on the floor with them.

He doesn’t like to get cornered.

He would rather be above them.

Silly Dog.

Fire On An April Evening

Yeah it was chilly, but such a good night to have a fire.

We were all able to get close enough that it wasn’t too cold.

Cooper had a lot of hair to keep him warm, but also had to watch for sparks with him.

He got tired toward the end of the night and laid across my lap, so I was warmer than most.

What a beautiful night it was.

I love warm April nights, because spring is in front of us… then summer… then fall…  Love them all!

Volunteering At The Local Cemetery

We went to the cemetery here in town with a bunch of other volunteers.

Our purpose was to replace flags and markers on all the veteran’s grave sites.

It was a big job, but well worth the outcome.

There needs to be an American flag at the grave stone of every American veteran who fought to preserve our freedom.

Shower Woes

When his hair is long it takes for ever to get the soap out of his hair.

But the time we’re done he’s like this.  Just done!

Wrestling with Alex Video

A couple days ago I posted pictures of Cooper Wrestling with Alex.

Today I found this video of that day.  Too funny.

Hospital Stay

I stayed a night in the hospital recently.  Cooper came and stayed with me the second day till I was discharged.

During my dinner time he came up next to me so he could get his head under my table.  So funny how he makes sure his training is followed.

Wrestling With Alex

I’m not sure how they ended up in this hold,

... but Cooper kind of thinks it’s fun.

And I happen to think it’s really funny to watch.
