Halloween '16 - Coolest House

The best decorated house made for the coolest pictures.



I had to have Cooper pose for pictures there.

Halloween '16 - Other Dogs

As always on Halloween there are other dogs out too.


This Dalmatian was very curious.


And this puppy was so cute. 




He’ll be full grown next year when we come back.

Halloween '16 - At The Wall

Every year we have the kids pose at this wall that is right near my house.


It’s such a great place to take a picture on Halloween.


We have the kids pose first and then I put Cooper in the shot.



He’s usually so good at staying put while we snap the pictures… It’s the kids who we can’t get to cooperate.

Halloween '16 - Getting Ready


While getting the kids dressed and ready to go Trick - or - Treating, Cooper just stayed on the couch out of the way.


Little did I know the kids were decorating Cooper.



He didn’t seem to mind much.

New Cup Holder

I got a passenger cup holder for my bike.


Not for me but for Cooper.


Usually when we stop and I give Cooper a drink, I have to balance the bowl on the seat with him or hold it while he drinks.



That always left the chance that the bowl would tip over and soak our seats.


This cup holder keeps the cup near enough where he can drink from it while standing on the seat.



He isn’t really used to it yet, but he’s willing to use it so he’ll get good at it in no time.

Cooper And The Charger

Cooper and I went car shopping recently and the car salesman had this blue charger.


He asked to take a picture of Cooper with his car because his hair matched the color of the car.



So I couldn’t resist taking pictures too so I could show them to you.

Thanksgiving Parade in 2011

I was looking back on Face Book and found pictures from the Thanksgiving Parade in 2011.


This was a year they built and dedicated a float to Vietnam Veterans.


It was fun to get a close look at the floats after the parade.


I even got to have Cooper pose with a few of them.



I remember this day well but somehow it doesn’t seem like it could have been 5 years ago.

Lap Time With A Great Family Friend

Cooper loves her moments with people he has seen on rare occasion since he was a puppy.



This happened to be one of those occasions where he got to sit with Aimee who he will see every few months for a short time each visit.  He really loves this.

Hitching A Ride From Dominic

I hire a guy to come split my firewood for me.  He has been coming for about 3 years now.

He and Cooper have gotten to know each other well enough to have fun the way Cooper likes to have fun.

10th Birthday - Eating Cookies

Cooper doesn’t usually eat cookies, but if you break it up he might.

This cookie was one he liked.  Especially the frosted part.

10th Birthday - Barking At His Presents

Another birthday come and gone.  Cooper is 10 years old now.  Some things never change though.  

video


He got very excited about his presents as he always does.  I’d like to know what all the barking is about though.  Big mouth…

10th Birthday Cookies

I bought Cooper two frosted Cookies and a squeaky toy for his birthday on the day he turned 10 years old.



One of the cookies said “Birthday” and the other said “Boy” but by the time I got them home they were blue and white melted frosting.  He loved them anyhow.

Just Love This Boy

Some days when I’m with Cooper, all he has to do is look up at me.



That’s all… and it makes me love him so much I have no words.

Won't Eat Treats

At the toy run this year, someone tried to feed Cooper.  Not a good idea to feed someone else’s dog, but it happens sometimes.  



As you can tell… He didn’t eat it.

Santa '16


Every year we do the Blue Knights Toy Run.


And Every year they have Mr. and Mrs. Clause.


Cooper knows them so well he goes right to them when they approach. 


He loves his time with them.


They know just what he loves when they pet him.



This has been a life long friendship for Cooper.

Fundraisers For Joe's Son

We went to a fund raiser in RI for the son of a Patriot Rider, Joe who was killed in a motorcycle accident.

Cooper was being a good boy in my lap.
You can't even see him here.
He was actually on the bike also, but he came through it.  He recovered from head injury and is ok.


This boy will need a money for his future now till he is done with school and able to work, so the fund raiser is to help with that.


Raffles are always a good way to help with raising money.



I didn’t win anything though.  Oh well…

More Pictures From Blackbeards Run

I found these pictures from Blackbeards run.


They came up on Facebook so I pulled them off to show to you.


We met this guy with his dog who was tiny enough to fit in his vest.


How cute is that???


Cooper loves to meet other dogs when we go on rides.

Best Lap In Town

Cooper has some really good friends.


And then there are the ones we consider family.


This is Michelle, and we consider her and her husband Pete family.


Safe, comfortable and loving.  



The Best Of The Best laps in town.
