Cooper is celebrating seven weeks at Foster House, the longest of any of our fosters. Today, Cooper ties the record, previously held by Tucker. Tomorrow he’ll break it.
Honestly, we’re a little befuddled at the lack of interest in Cooper. Sure, he may not be perfect, but he’s improved leaps and bounds in the time he’s been with us. He hasn’t had an accident in weeks. And yesterday, he spent the whole day in his crate without eating his bed. That, my friends, is growth.
Who wants perfect, anyway? Perfect is boring. Our own Oscar, who couldn’t be more perfect in my eyes, is toy possessive, afraid of kitchen tile and only learned how to jump into the car recently by watching our foster dogs. And look at Kaylee – tied to a chain, unsocialized, bigger than she thinks she is Kaylee. Since she’s been adopted, Kaylee (now Kate) has become a foster sister herself, helping rehabilitate a dog rescued from a horrible abuse situation. I’ll take “needs a little love” over “perfect” any day of the week.
Let’s talk about what Cooper is good at. Do you need a co-pilot, who can’t get enough of car rides? Cooper’s your guy.
Do you want a snuggle buddy, for yourself and/or another four-legged member of the family? Check and check.
How about someone to help inspect your shower for cleanliness? Gotcha covered there, too.
Would you like to be lulled to sleep each night by the soothing sounds of a chainsaw? Look no further.
Cooper, I make you this promise: I will search tirelessly, high and low, until we find you the most perfectest People on the planet. They are going to love you so stinkin’ much, you won’t be able to stand it. They’re gonna snuggle you like you’ve never been snuggled before, up on the couch under a warm blanket on cold windy nights. They’re gonna take you on big adventure hikes, or maybe you’ll be their running partner. Maybe they’ll take you to the lake or the river this summer to see if you’re the swimming type, would you like that? They might work from home, or even be able to take you to work with them, wouldn’t that be awesome? And don’t worry, most importantly, I’ll make sure they understand how to properly stuff a Kong for you.
But until then, babe – you’ve got a place with us for as long as you want it.
