I don't think Cooper is having very much fun today.  She looks like she is kinda bored.  Poor Cooper, I don't think she is a Monday dog.

She's Still Here

Celebrating Cooper's one-year anniversary since her near death accident last year.  One year ago I did not think we were going to have another day with Cooper, let alone a whole year.  Hoping she sticks around for many, many more years.
Right Doug?!
You love your Saturdays with Cooper.

Carving Pumpkins

Isaac and Ellie came over and carved pumpkins last night.  We had a total of three trick or treaters, so the remaining candy was enthusiastically shared by the pumpkin carvers:)
