Well Cooper, you did it! You finally found your most perfectest, wonderfulest, fureverest family. The Ones who will take care of you until the end, who will continue to train you and have patience while you continue to work on yourself – which they understand could be a life-long process. But most importantly, you found The Ones who will love you so fiercely, so completely that they can’t imagine their lives without you.
Actually Cooper, you found us a long time ago. It just took us a little longer to realize that you were our One, too.
When did you first Know? Was it that first weekend you came home from the shelter with me and snuggled up next to me on the couch? You haven’t left my side ever since.
You’ve always been a momma’s boy, that’s for sure. But you soon figured out Dad was pretty good for snugglin’, too – was that when you decided to stay?
Was it the way Oscar accepted you and took his under his
wing paw, to show you the ropes, and how to be part of a Family? Did your Brother help you make up your mind?
How did you know that we would always take care of you? Even when you’re afraid, you trust us that everything will be OK.
Was it the all the training we did together? Did that show you that we would always work our absolute hardest for you?
Whatever it was, Cooper – I’m sorry it took us so long to figure it out. But the wait is over – you’re Ours now. Furever. Another heartbeat – always to be at our feet.
We love you, Cooper! Welcome to the Family.
