Cooper : March 18, 2005 – October 30, 2017

It is with a saddened heart that I have to say that Cooper has passed away. It came on very suddenly, literally in a matter of days. He had a very large internal mass that in the end was pressing on his intestines causing him to not eat.

He will be greatly missed by us. We were blessed to have Cooper for 12 years. He brought us great joy and happiness and everyone he met instantly fell in love with him. People were always amazed at how well he would pose for pictures (and they would also take his picture) and was always smiling, no matter what silly outfit he was wearing – he knew a treat was waiting for him as a reward. Strangers would offer him food because he had this magical look (at one fair a woman gave him her salmon lunch, she had one bite, didn’t like and decided Cooper needed it.)

We were very proud when he passed the Canine Good Citizen Test on his first try, we had his certificate framed to display. Cooper helped pay for his way by winning many fun competitions (costume contests, musical chairs, favorite pet voting for newspaper and stores). 

Whenever we would foster a dog, Cooper was the perfect big brother allowing them to adjust to their new life. He would share his toys, bed and food.

Cooper was a very special dog – one of a kind! There will never be another like him. Our lives are very empty without him. He will always be our beloved child.
