This is Cooper and "HE" owned Velma and Howard..
Cooper came to them as a rescue that no one else wanted. He however, was very much wanted by Velma and Howard. Cooper and Howard were together "all the time." Coop went everywhere with Howard, including to work every day.. He loved his Tim bits and he always got his share..
Late last fall Cooper was diagnosed with cancer and he had his front leg amputated. I want you to know that this NEVER slowed Cooper down for a minute, he chased a ball with the best of them including my dogs. He and Raider were pretty good friends.
Cooper out on one of his daily runs with the other dogs.
Cooper you lived life the way we all should, enjoying every moment!!
We, who choose to surround ourselves with lives even more
temporary than our own, live within a fragile circle,
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept it's awful gap we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
never fully understanding the necessary plan.
