With Daddy At The Rest Stop


We drove Daddy to NY to his daughter’s house.


The ride was wonderful.  


Cooper took turns sitting on each of us all the way on the 9 hour ride.


Stopping at a rest stop gave cooper the chance to pee...


...but he would always return to Daddy’s lap.

Visiting With Daddy

We had the best visits this summer.  Jesse came to see us after being in AZ for the last few years.


Jesse is Daddy to Cooper.  He was there from puppyhood through his first 8 years of life.  It was a great reunion where we got to spend hours together.

Clapping Cooper

My friend sent it to me from Andy’s birthday party.

Monti's Run 2017

Here we are at Monti’s run again this year.


We seldom miss this run.    It means a lot to us to attend and show our support.

You can see Cooper laying in the shade.  It was a really hot this day.
We Listen to the singing of The Atar Spangled Banner.  Then there is a pre ride prayer.  And then we ride.


Cooper is so well behaved during all this.  The only time he isn’t quiet and respectful of any of that is when someone is paying more attention to him than prayer or patriotism.  


This is a view looking down from the ladder truck that comes in to fly the flag for this event.  



Very cool, but most of the bikes are hidden by the flag.

See That Cat?


See that cat?


Cooper does.


He knows he’s not going to be allowed to chase it.


So what you can’t tell about this picture is…


… he is whining as he watches that cat sleek through the yard… UNchased.  



Cooper will have his chance another day when I’m not watching.  Guaranteed.

Standing There Just Looking

Did you ever feel like someone was looking at you?


At Andy’s I sit with Andy and Cooper hangs out at the kitchen table.


He usually lays on a chair under the table and sleeps.





This day he was on his feet and looking at me for, who knows how long?


I don’t know what he wanted or why he wouldn’t lay down even after I told him to.



Very strange behavior for Cooper.

Another 2017 Mercedes Loaner


My car went in for repair AGAIN.


Oh well… it seems every time I have car repairs done I get a 2017 Mercedes Benz to drive.


Cooper is glad when we get our own car back


These luxury cars aren’t very good for cuddling.


They have a huge console so Cooper can’t lay against me... So he lays ON me.

Hanging Out On Our Favorite Porch


Sometimes just hanging out with Cooper I get overwhelmed with his cuteness. 


We were watching neighbors walk by and cars drive by.



Cooper did the occasional bark bark bark… you know, Just for good measure.

Step Ladder

Cooper sometimes gets excited about some of the silliest things.


We have a two step ladder and he wanted to get on it.



So… what else am I to do but take a picture of two.

Bagged Lunch

Cooper is so good at going with the flow.

We had a meeting that happened to be during Cooper’s meal time.

I brought his food, but forgot a bowl.


So I opened the baggie for him to eat from.


He did perfectly.  Ate his fill and then wanted a drink.



What a good boy.

Talking Cooper

Who could resist?!?!?

What better thing to do with Cooper than to teach him to talk?

Poof! Beauty Day

Cooper is so cute!  But the price that he has to bay to be beautiful can be time consuming.


About twice a year we spend about 2 hours brushing out his mop top.  It takes 2 hours because I have to go slow so I don’t hurt him.  I have to work out every snarl, little by little.



He has a cotton ball POOF of hair until I wash it and the familiar spikes take shape again.

Cooper Through The Kaleidoscope


\Me and my grand son Logan were messing around with a toy kaleidoscope.


He looked at Cooper through it…



… then I had the idea of trying to see him through my camera lens.


It was really cool to take these pictures by holding the kaleidoscope to the camera lens.



What will we think of next?
