Some Cooper goodness from then and now...

On one of our neighbourhood walks the other day, someone reminded me how quickly puppies can grow up when they remarked that in the short week or two since they'd last seen Cooper he'd seemed to grow even bigger.

Being around him all day you get used to how he looks, but there are times when you do a double-take and you can see just how much he's altered.

Here are just a selection of new pictures of Cooper, plus some old favourites, so you can compare how much bigger he's become.

Here's our pup at ten months cooling off on the tiles, he's almost as long as the wall. Whilst it's a different story when he was only a few weeks old when we first brought him home.

We've always used the fireplace as a good gauge of how big Cooper is at any point in time. Now at ten months he's almost as long as the tiles he likes to lie on, whilst when he was younger he looked like a little beached seal pup.

Here's another comparison which always makes me laugh. Our ten month old pup with a rawhide bone, pretty much the same size as the one he had in the photo at eight weeks old.

In this picture the bone dwarves him and he looks so tiny and cute. It's been a long time since he's been able to fit between those bench legs.

The last time we weighed him he was still around 70lbs and every Labrador owner we meet assures us that he's still got a way to grow yet.

We don't mind Cooper, we'll love you whatever your size...

Cooper sure loooks like he's having fun in Hollywood. I live in "Hollywood North" otherwise known as Vancouver. I'm in a puppy class with 9 Labs.

wow - that must be fun. 9 Labs in a training class, one (Cooper) was enough for our trainer :-)
