Since this blog is brand new I decided it was time to introduce my writing buddy, Cooper. As I settle down with my cup of coffee to write each morning this is what I see when I look around my laptop screen. Many of my author bios state that I often write with a Golden Retriever napping nearby – and here’s the proof.
Cooper will be 5-years old on March 1st and he is my almost constant companion. The mischievous little “brother” to my two, human children. He was my birthday present about 4 1/2 years ago and, believe it or not, my first dog. Now I can’t imagine my life without him.
His favorite things to do are play tug o’ war, chase squirrels, go for rides, swim and, of course, nap. He considers any toy labeled “durable” or “non-destructible” as a challenge. The people at the vet’s office have nicknamed him “Spaz” because he loves to go there and greets everybody with kisses and whole-body wiggling tail wags. It doesn’t matter if he gets a shot, as long as they pet him and give him a beefy treat afterward, he loves them. He also has a beautiful smile, but he wasn’t up for showing it while I was taking these pictures.
Do you have a furry sidekick?
