Help Us Help More Golden’s Like Cooper.

Cooper arrived in his new house on May 27, 2009. Life has not been the same. This 8 year old golden has woven in every heart on the street.

Cooper was 110 pounds, very poor coat with hot spots and infected ears. Everyone said that he looked 12 years old, or more. At first, I thought the rescue group had "exaggerated" their estimate, and wondered if I was over my head.

Well, here we are just a few months later, and he has a perfect coat, down to 85 pounds, and runs and plays like a 5 year old. That's what everybody thinks now. His ears are fine, as they perk up with the sound of fridge doors, car doors or back doors.

Last weekend, Cooper and I enjoyed a beautiful park we had not been in. So for a moment, the two of us reflected by the water. I thought he was the luckiest dog ever. Then with teary eyes I hugged him and said no, I was the luckiest guy.

Thanks to the rescue folks, your efforts are really a Blessing.
