Ever since I was a little girl I always wanted a dog. I probably can’t count how many times I asked my parents for a dog. I knew we couldn’t get a dog because both of my parents were allergic and they would constantly remind me that we were never home to take care of a dog because my brothers and I played sports 24/7 when we weren’t in school.
Every Christmas I would ask for a puppy anyways, and as much as I knew it wasn’t possible I still asked for the pure hope that one day it just might happen.
I always wanted a golden retriever but of course they shed too much. I started researching dogs on the internet one day and I stumbled upon a partially hypoallergenic dog called a comfort retriever. It’s a mix between a golden and a poodle. When I started looking at the pictures of the puppies I was sold. I may have done a little dance because these dogs were perfect!
I sent the breeder’s link to Marc, and I’m pretty sure he knew he couldn’t say no to me. We talked to the breeder and in just a few short months Cooper was born.
I counted down the days until we would get him. The wait seemed like forever.
We were so lucky to have the breeder’s friend bring Cooper to our house, when they arrived I ran outside to find the tiniest little fluff ball waiting in his crate. I asked if I could hold him, and she said “he’s yours!” I had the biggest grin on my face and I will forever remember our first encounter.
I brought Cooper inside and of course he peed right away. Poor guy had a long car ride!
He ran around and explored the house, man this little guy had more spunk then I knew what to do with. He was so playful, curious, and of course too cute.
I waited my whole life for a dog and I couldn’t be luckier to have such a fun loving and playful puppy to spend all my days with.
He takes me on new adventures every day and makes me enjoy the rain when all I really want to be doing is snuggling on the couch or of course on the floor.
Cooper keeps me on my toes, he knows how to push my buttons by stealing toys, but most importantly he knows how to make me smile and cheer me up with kisses and his cute puppy dog face!
There’s only one other girl besides Ava and of course myself that Cooper gets super excited for, his girlfriend Barley! When they have playdates he can’t hold back his smile and excitement!
I love my little doggie and I know he’s made a new best friend with Ava because he makes her just as happy as he makes me & Marc.
Happy Birthday Mr. Cooper!
If you have a pet, do you celebrate their birthday? I think Cooper will definitely have a few licks of ice cream tonight
Did you have a pet growing up?
