Life and times of Cooper Female
Default Life and times of Cooper

Cooper was born 26th Nov 2010 and came to live with us when he was 8 weeks old.
He certainly loved his food as you can see by the photos below.

He suffered with arthritis for the past 3 years and was given injections regularly by the vet. Over time we had to increase how many injections he had over the year. This past year he was also given daily tablets.

Last week he took a turn for the worse, after describing his symptoms the vet agreed it was time.

When he was a young dog going for a walk along the seafront, someone stopped us and said "What a lovely dog, he has such kind eyes'

He did have kind eyes, a sweet boy, a great ambassador for his breed.

We held him all the way to the end, and continue to hold him in our hearts.

A lot of encouragement! We understand what it is to lose a partner of years. This thread is a lovely and great tribute.💕🐕

Condolences from here, as well.

We’ve had to do that several times ourselves. It always hurts.

I am so sorry for your loss, thank you for sharing the story and pictures of your lovely friend. Kind eyes indeed and such a sweet soul. My heart is with you and your family as you grieve the hole left by Cooper's absence.

I'm so very sorry. What a handsome guy he was. It's clear that he had a wonderful life with you, and I understand how much you will miss him. Rest in peace, Cooper......
