Saturday with Cooper

Baby Cooper has had a big few days. He has been eating well and he loves his dollop of "Yogrit" (That is Yogurt in human words) on his food. He is fed 3 times a day because he is a growing boy!

Cooper enjoys his condo where he can sleep snuggly and safely and still be with the family. His favorite blanket is the one the shelter staff sent home with him. I have washed this blanket 3 times already!!! LOL  Cooper's skin is very fragile and bleeds a lot. It is very important that Cooper's bedding stays fresh and clean to help his skin heal. Mange is a very treatable disease, it just takes time and care to get under control.

Cooper is feeling much better. When we go for walks, his little tail wags so hard he falls down. It is hard not to laugh; he is just so cute! Below is a video of him following his Sheppie Mama on a walk. He finally learned to stay upright while wagging his tail!

Today was bath day! Cooper wasn't excited about it, but he took it like a trooper. It was very sad to see all the scabs and bleeding, but we are on the way to recovery!

Austin & Cooper
Cooper, Baby Coop, Coopster, the names go on. Many people have asked me where I came up with the cute name Cooper. Well, I didn't. On May 6th, Humane Enforcement Officer with The Humane Society of Escambia County, Austin Cooper got the call about our little Cooper. It was Austin's birthday, so what better way to honor that than name this little fighter after the kind and caring man who rescued him. Check out The Humane Society of Escambia County on Facebook. Like them and follow them. If you have friends and family in Southern Alabama/Northern Florida have them check out this great group of people and animals!

It is time to get off the computer and go play with Cooper! Stay tuned for adventures. His little personality is coming out and I just know the antics will begin soon!!
