Bench monster...

Our pup Cooper has always had an affinity for our table bench, mainly because it's where we sit when we're at the computer and so where he can be close to us.

The wooden bench was once a favourite chew toy when he was a very young pup and teething, but since then it's become a place to slobber and sleep on.

The table and bench set, from Crate & Barrel, is a great space saver and it's easy to tuck the benches underneath the table to allow more room in our main living area.

This helps enormously when we're throwing a ball for Cooper or he has his 'mad five minutes' and decides to dash full pelt around the living room crashing into everything in sight.

When Cooper was a young Labrador pup he could easily fit between the bench legs, but now that he's a giant brute of a pup, he can barely fit his body under the whole length of the bench.

For something that's made of wood, which doesn't look all that comfortable, Cooper definitely seems to feel right at home sleeping on it, no matter how precariously he's balanced.

Like I said above, he likes to be on the bench with us, either sleeping or chewing a bone or playing with a toy of some kind.

We have some of the cutest pictures of Cooper as a young pup on the bench seats, when the size of his puppy paws gave us an indication of just how big he was going to grow.

How could you not love Labradors (and Cooper) after seeing these pictures?

But I do think you'll agree that, as these photos show, he is such a 'Bench Monster'.

Even more importantly he's a healthy, happy and sweet-natured pup. 

I'm sure it won't be long before there's only room on the bench for one body though and we all know who that will be don't we...
