Happy 8th Birthday Cooper! Wow, these past eight years have flown by but we still remember when you were just a little pup when we brought you home at eight weeks old. Today I thought I'd look back at how our Yellow Sandylands Labrador has grown over the years, but do you know how impossible it is to choose one picture for each year amongst thousands? Hopefully these examples will give you a glimpse at the character or our boy and the adventures we've had together so far.
Meanwhile this cool character sums up what Cooper's like when he's in a mood and having none of it, he can be a stubborn pup at times, although he's always a good sport when we want to dress him up in sunglasses, Santa hats or Halloween costumes.
Mind you, over the years he's become increasingly camera shy and will purposefully turn away if he has a camera or smartphone pointed at him, he's not stupid.
Like most dogs, and pets, Cooper hates going anywhere near his animal hospital, no matter how nicely they treat him, or the amount of treats he gets each visit.
