My Pet Pal: Cooper

This is Cooper, who celebrated his 12th birthday in November. Every year in honor of this special day we buy him a piñata and fill it with treats. He loves to shred it to pieces and could not care less about the treats. He loves going for rides, swimming, and there isn’t a tennis ball he hasn’t met that he does not love. Coop loves spending time with his human family, and always welcomes his two cousins, Angus and Enzo. He has been a blessing to our family and there will never be another quite like Cooper!
