Can we just talk about this guy for a hot minute?
This week is the week ONE YEAR AGO that we got Cooper! Officially, we adopted him on February 14th….yes, Valentine’s Day. But it wasn’t a cheesy, “I’ll get my husband a puppy for valentine’s day” sort of deal. Nope, we knew way before moving to Alabama that we wanted a dog. So, on February 13th, we set out to find ourselves a dog. What’d we do? We hit up the nearest shelter…in Dothan.
Cooper’s litter was the only one at the shelter and Cooper was the only curly haired one in the bunch, so naturally, we wanted him. They let us pick him up the next day and on the way home from adopting him, we stopped at the pet store to get all the essentials. And the next few weeks were crazy. Puppy whining, poop and pee, chewing, puppy whining, refusing to go on walks, more pooping and more peeing, mouthiness. Oh my word. There were times I wanted to drop kick that puppy out the back door. Talk about smart and stubborn all in one – that was/is Cooper.
And here we are, one year later.
I seriously love this dog’s guts.
