February 2017 Blizzard

I love video of Cooper in the snow.  It never gets old with me to watch him roll around and enjoy the snow when he goes out after a fresh snow.

video


I put a shirt on him to help keep the snow from balling up and tangling this hair.  He would rather not wear the shirt but he’s a good boy and lets me put it on him.

Mop Top

This is quite a MOP TOP, huh?



I get a kick out of how full it looks sometimes.

Riding Gear

Over the last 10 years of Cooper’s riding experiences we have had to get him the appropriate clothes to protect him from the cold and rain.


He likes his snow suit, and I’ve also made him a liner for that snow suit to help keep him warmer if it’s really cold out.


The rain suit is not a favorite thing to wear but it is important sometimes when it’s pouring out or he needs a wind breaker if it’s really freezing cold.


Hmmm… these boots are mine.


And the shades are just for looks.  Cool dude!

Memories - The Pacific Coast Highway

I LOVE this picture.  This is taken on a rock at the top of a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean.



We rode the Pacific Coast Highway for hours!  What a beautiful view it was all along the whole route.

Memories - Redwood Trees

While We were in California we got to experience something that felt AMAZING.


We got to see trees that were bigger than anything I had ever seen before.

Gotta pee on one!

These aren’t even the biggest ones, but they are bigger than anything I’ve ever seen before or since.  


We actually brought home pine cones from these trees.


Cooper looks SO TINY here.

Memories - Over Heated Bike in 108º

Sometimes bikes just can’t take the heat.  My bike had vapor lock a couple times.  Jesse’s bike over heated a few times.



During the times we had to stop, Cooper needed to be kept in the shade so we did this to keep the sun off him and we had hats on our heads.  No shade to be found anywhere.  Full sun was all there was so we just did our best to get through.  Cooper also had an ice bag in his little travel crate so he was cooled that way too.

This Picture


This picture that was taken in VT in 2010 was such a favorite that I used it for a profile picture…


A picture to turn into a pencil sketch…


And the picture featured on his motorcycle patch that has been sold all the way cross country.

Memories - Biker Puppy - 6 Year Anniversary of This Blog

I can’t believe Cooper’s riding Literally began here when he was 10 weeks old.


And here at a few months old.  Who would have thought that 10 years later he would have done ALL you’ve read here in this blog in the last 6 years.



We are now approaching 62,000 views in 116 countries, having posted a new story every single day for the last 6 years.  This means you can read 2,192 stories about the best dog I have ever had.  


He is now 10 years old.  What an amazing difference he has made in my life.  Here's to the years to come with health and happiness.  Thanks for the great stories you give me to tell Cooper.  I love you.

Memories - With Andy

This is my friend Andy.  I have been taking care of Andy for a LONG time. 


Cooper was just about 8 weeks old when they met.


They have done many things together.



Andy likes Cooper but he’s too big to sit with him now.

Memories - Dog Fancy Article

How many dogs do you know have been featured in a magazine article?


Cooper was.  He was one of three stories in an article in Dog Fancy.  The article was written by Becky Blanton who we actually got to meet during our cross country trip.  Such GREAT memories.

Memories - Camping

One of my biggest days with Cooper was this one.  



We went camping in CT… just him and me.  I had never been along away from home.  This was the VERY FIRST TIME.

Memories - Ventura Beach

What a wonderful goal.  This picture represents the achievement of reaching the west coast in July of 2011.



We started on the east coast in Plymouth Massachusetts with our feet in the water, then got to play in the water on Ventura Beach in California.  Best Summer Vacation EVER!

Memories - California Police

The police in California were really funny.  When I asked them to pose with Cooper they really did a great job.



They pretended he was in BIG TROUBLE so I could make up a story.  Everyone loves the chance to pose with Cooper for a blog story weather it be a true story or a funny made up one.

Memories - New Mexico Shaded Spot

This pictures was taken somewhere in the mid west.  I think it may have been New Mexico… I’m not sure.



You can imagine how hot it was in July.  We had a difficult time finding shade for Cooper to walk around in.  The ground was so hot he could not be put down to walk on the sand or pavement.  I carried him to shaded places for him to walk on.

Memories - Snakes In A Bag

Another old picture :)  This was Cooper investigating a bag with our big snakes in it.


He has never been afraid of anything.



These snakes were great pets but we never left anything to chance.


Cooper was always protected and safely away from the snakes unless we were right there with them.

Memories - First BWVR

This picture was taken at the very first Boston Wounded Vet Run in 2011.


What a great organization this has begun.



Last year there were 8,652 bikes from what I understand, and every penny of what was raised went to wounded veterans.

Memories - Sleeping Bag

I have been finding old pictures on thumb drives and micro chips all over the place!  I love when that happens.  This picture was taken in California during our cross country motorcycle trip.  




Cooper has a sleeping bag I kept in his travel crate.  Sometimes I would bring it in to wash it.  This time Cooper saw me come back from the laundry with it and got inside it so we put a pillow under his head.  He was about 5 years old at that time.  So cute.

Just Got Licked

It was funny when Lisa did it in the summer of 2012…


and when I did it last year.



AND it’ll be funny the next time someone else does it.

Painting

I talked a friend into painting a picture of Cooper. 



How’s THIS for a painting of my blue haired boy?!?

Tub Toy

Some Pictures can’t be shown but the story is SO FUNNY you can’t help but want to tell it.



I think this story tells hit’s self.  All I can say is that Cooper REALLY wanted to get in the water to play with that toy!

Meeting Odie

This is Odie.

We met him in Lowes.


What a great dog he is.


He is a very calm and confident dog.


Well behaved and sweet.


Cooper liked him very much because he wasn’t at all unpredictable or quick moving.


It’s always nice when Cooper gets to meet another dog.



He doesn’t get to socialize with other dogs every day.

Sleepy Americal Dog

We got a new blanket.  You know us… VERY patriotic.



Cooper looks GREAT snuggling with this blanket all bunched up in a nice comfie pile.
