Well after a rotten week with losing Cooperdog and me being sick with a nasty virus i was feeling quite down and flat, so the next best thing to cheer me up was to get my camera out..Here are my 3 men in the back yard doing what guys do best, the lawnmowing.

well the time has come , we had to say goodbye to Cooperdog today, after 11 years of good health he took a turn for the worst 2 weeks ago.. He has been on a strict diet the past 2 weeks but had gone downhill over the past few days.. We had to make the decision today to say goodbye, he was in pain and was losing too  much weight.. He was a great friend to us before the boys were born and then for the past 3 and half years he has also been loved by Noah and Caleb..  

I was thinking before of some of his highlights over the past couple of years, these come to mind:

sneaking inside and eating an entire batch of  apple muffins,( recipe  of lisa’s, they were yummy and he thought so too)  he ate 11 of the 12, i came inside to see this one lone muffin sitting on the bench and with a very sheepish dog sitting beside it…  hence to say he got to eat the last one why not make it a whole batch!!!

sneaking inside again and curling up in noahs toddler bed, when it came time for the boys to go to bed they scooted on down to their room for noah to then call out that there wasn’t enough room for him and the dog in his bed.  Cooper thought it was the perfect place to sleep.  Noah got the bed though, he promptly told cooper to get out of his bed….

and again sneaking inside and eating a very tasty piece of salmon cooking on the hot plate, i came into the kitchen to find the backdoor open and one little salmon steak left cooking..  And cooperdog licking his chops.. 

he even helped me with my photography session, i had to take photos of animals for one of our challenges and cooper gladly let me take a zillion shots of him whilst i held a snack for him to sit still.  Mind you he never came near the camera again, each time i brought it out he would run away..  Below are the shots that i took of him last year, i’m glad i got some nice shots of him before he became sick.

 

he really has been a great friend and we will miss him to bits.. miss you cooper already… Cooper goober, as the boys would call him.
