Thanks for a very special and precious gift remembering Cooper

Posted Friday, February 20, 2009, at 4:29 PM

If you have followed this blog during the last year, you will know that we lost a very special pet last year. Cooper was only with us a little over a year but he made a huge impact. He was taken from his mother before weaned, so Debbi became his mother and he quickly won a special place in our family.

A friend gave us a customized grave marker that she made in his memory. It took my words away, and for those who know me, that is saying something. Even as I write this my eyes are starting to water so I will keep this short.

Thank you Kathy for your very, very special thoughtfulness.

Always glad to share Cooper's memory. It took weeks to adjust and every time we look at certain pictures or different places in our yard, it brings back memories.

He was a rascal but a real lover as well. Until he got too big to tolerate, he used to lay across Debbi's throat at night. Kind of like wearing a scarf to bed. We would share those photos but they include us in less than flattering poses.
