Our Dear Friend....

We faced a long, hard decision last month and passed Cooper on to another family.
He was a great dog...mellow and loving, but he needed more attention.
He started out as the top dog in the family, but then we had Noah, then we had Audrey, and now we are having another and it's just been further down the ladder for poor Coops.

We ended up finding a great situation for him. He went to a husband and wife with no children, Cooper is now their baby. They had a beagle for 16 years before he passed and she was wanting another. Cooper gets to go to work with her and hangs out in the theater department of a local high school. The kids love him and he pretty much has free reign of the campus. He was the type of dog that didn't like to be alone which made this perfect for him.
We all hated to see him go, but knew this was so much better for him.
We still keep in contact with the lady that took him. She is great and mothers him to death.
Noah and Audrey still include him in their prayers...mostly saying that he'll be happy with his new family.

Coops as a puppy...

We recently had the chance to meet up with his new mommy at a park.
Has he adjusted well????
I mean come on....five years and all he wanted to do was sniff the grass. It actually helped us feel better about the situation. We know he is happy and getting TONS of attention.
One last photo with our first family dog.

I'm so glad he went to a great home. And glad you all got closure. We're happy we got to meet him.

I love the family photo! Coops is such a cute dog. I'm sure it was hard to give him up but it sounds like he is loving his family!
