Hoppy 4th Ampuversary, Cooper

Posted in Uncategorized | 8 Comments »

I don’t post here as often as I should, but I wanted to give a big shout out to my amazing dog, Cooper… the three-legged wonder.

It was four years ago this week, that young Cooper had his amputation.  His leg had been broken and was inoperable, except for experimental surgery, which the vets strongly recommended against.  Coop was 7 months old, and had been returned to the puppies’ foster mom by his original adopters who could not afford the medical bills after his leg broke. He was so young, and at the time, I knew nothing about three-legged animals.  I was so worried about him.

But, it turned out, he doesn’t even know he is “disabled” (and don’t tell him!).  I think he was grateful to not be dragging that leg around anymore.

Coop is the best dog in the world.  He and his brother (from the same litter) are my “comfort dogs”.  Eighteen months ago, I lost my husband to cancer.  My world, my life, has been turned upside-down.  Suddenly, I was alone after 30 years.  If it were not for these two dogs, and a handful of very supportive friends, I don’t know where I would be today.  I can’t wait to get home from work every night to hang out with my amazing dogs, Charlie and Cooper.  Sometimes, they drive me nuts with all their barking and shenanigans, but mostly they are my best friends and bring me so much joy and happiness.

Hoppy 4th Ampuversary, Cooper!  I love you more than words can say!
