I'm sorry but just how adorable is our Yellow Labrador Cooper?
How can you not love those eyes, those floppy ears and that beautiful face.
I was looking through some old photos, ahh the joy of digital images, and seeing these particular pictures of Cooper brought a smile to my face.
It's hard to believe our 84lb, almost four year old, Lab was ever this small that he could fit between the legs of a bench, or under the sofa, or even in our bookcase.
My advice to anyone with a new puppy, take as many picture as you can, because they grow so fast. Snap away and you'll be able to relive the memories in the future too.
Personally I find all the images of Cooper sleeping especially adorable, he's like a bundle of paws, ears and fluffy fur.
Looking back you can conveniently forget all about the sharp teeth and claws, the lack of bladder control and all those sleepless nights.
If there's one thing we miss about Cooper from those early days is his pitch black nose, which has now turned to a much pinker 'snow nose'.
But he's still as cute as he was.
As you can see our boy has always been very talented. I remember our pride when he first picked up two tennis balls in his mouth and our joy when he managed three (although sadly we've never been able capture that on camera).
He's also always had a talent for making us laugh, he's a bit of a comedy dog.
From frolicking on the beach, to trying to get out of his inflatable cone after an operation. Pure comedy gold.
Hopefully these photos will satisfy all Cooper's many fans out there.
Be sure to come back soon for even more photos of our growing pup...
