28 Things You’re Gonna LOVE About Cooper: # 4 – 5

Whoops, running a little behind, aren’t we! Let’s catch up…This month we are dedicated the blog to 28 things that YOU, Cooper’s Person, are going to love about Cooper.  One wonderful adorable trait for each day of February. 

#4 He’s really good at cheering up homesick college students!

Last weekend Cooper took part in a fundraiser for Agape Animal Rescue called Puppy Love.

Cooper and Oscar and another Agape adoptable pup, Jackson, spent the afternoon on campus at Belmont University.  In exchange for a small donation, college students who were missing there pets at home got to spend some quality time with these three dogs, who of course, loved every minute of it.

“Attention, scratches and snuggles for me? YES please!”

Even though the weather didn’t cooperate and we couldn’t be outside as originally planned, we improvised in an empty classroom with beautiful flourescent lighting and tables draped with sheets as dividers. It may not have been pretty, but it was a blast!

I’m sure Jackson did quite well, but Oscar and Cooper were a total hit. And Cooper ate up the attention with a spoon. He plopped right down in one girl’s lap, and I couldn’t get a clear picture because he wouldn’t stop wiggling with joy!

“I can have more pets now please yes??”

Nearly ever student who came by fell in insta-love with our boys, as they shared stories about their own pets back home. Cooper played his role perfectly, lapping up any attention that was offered his way. He leaned into their ear scratches and rolled over for their belly rubs. He even offered a smooch or two for those who were into that sort of thing.  And an extra bonus: our afternoon resulted in two of the sleepiest pups I have ever seen. Who would have thought being so adorable and getting undivided attention would have been so exhausting?


I’ve said it before…the motto of The Cooper is Play Hard, Sleep Hard. But it’s the “play” part that is so much fun to watch!

If you’d like to add Cooper to your Family, please fill out an adoption application with Agape Animal Rescue.

  2. What an awesome idea to bring him to Belmont that day!!!! I missed my dog so much while I was in college…those pictures, he is so full of love!!!! Thank you for all you do!!!!


  3. I wish my college had done dog visits! They do that with the shelter dogs here. Cooper plays exactly like Rusty – it was always fun to watch and Gambit misses having a playmate. He keeps trying to convince Eddie to play.


  4. Love that he was too wiggly to get a good shot! 🙂


  5. What a great fundraiser!!! I wish a rescue group would have done that when I was in college. I would totally have plopped down a couple of bucks for snuggles!


  6. Very fun video, thanks for sharing 🙂


  7. What a fantastic idea! No shocker that Coop and Oscar did great!
