Be a hero. Rescue a pet. The last two dogs that have graced the Cooper house have been rescues. Tony, the first rescue was a heart stealer. He had an amazing ability to make friends. We often had friends ask about Tony whenever they called or emailed. He was loved by all.
Then came Hoss. Hoss is a lot like Tony. I called Tony the King of Hearts because he was so widely loved. Hoss is right up there with him. Hoss is so well known around this area that he has his own Facebook fan page. That used to bother me when he had more friends on his Facebook page than I had. Not really.
Both of dogs seemed to appreciate their second chance. You couldn't ask for better temperaments than these boys have had. Hoss, the current fur-ball king of the Cooper House is a lot like one of the boys. He has his daily routines. He doesn't like to have it messed up, and he loves to play around.
Do a pound puppy, or a foster dog a big favor and give him/her a forever home. He/she will love you, and before you know it, he/she will be the fur-ball King/Queen of your Castle.
