Happy 1st Birthday Cooper! What a milestone.
To help celebrate our yellow Labrador's first Birthday, here are twelve fantastic images of Cooper at home and out and about in L.A. for you to enjoy.
I've tried to select a photograph from each month of his life (including two around the same age for when we first got him at eight weeks), that show all aspects of his personality - cute, mischievous, happy, playful, proud, you get the idea...

One year old Birthday pup Cooper
Look at how much he's grown. He's become such a huge part of our life this past year and now that he's one year old, I suppose we should stop calling him a 'puppy' and start calling him a 'dog'.
However grown up he looks, he'll always be 'our pup' to us though.
Let's see what changes and adventures the next twelve months will bring...
