Terrible Dog Mom
I realized over the weekend that I completely forgot to introduce a key member of our family – our first child, and furry son, Cooper. How on earth could I forget this cute little guy? Poor Cooper has really gotten the short end of the stick since Ben came home, and this lapse of memory is another example!
He’s a nearly 3-year-old Brittany (read: craziest, most energetic dog you can imagine, like Richard Simmons on crack) and gets into quite a lot of trouble, which is more our fault than his, for not giving him enough exercise. Lately he’s been quite the attention-seeker, just trying to let us know he’s still around (and, that I should try to remember to feed him breakfast in the morning…). Cooper loves long walks on the beach (no, really!), stealing hand towels from the bathroom, being thisclosenexttoyou, and cheese.
He’s not quite sure what to make of Ben, other than he knows he gets into a lot of trouble for licking the baby’s face, hands, arms, feet, etc. (ordinarily I don’t mind dog kisses, but honestly, this lately, this dog licks his butt all the dang time and his breath has been staaaaaank…). Overall, we’re lucky that Cooper is super gentle with Ben. We’ll just keep working on the butt-licking issue… baby steps, right?
