The Gentleman's Dog

It's an act of faith to entrust a beloved dog to a new family...with thanks to the gentleman for placing his trust in us and introducing Cooper into our lives. He's already wriggled his way into our hearts!


Just out of his crate, Cooper meets Shiner on neutral territory at Delta's cargo area at Boston's Logan Airport. It takes the uppity shih Tzu 5 seconds to "unfriend" him!

Cooper settling in!

It doesn't take long for Cooper to feel at home. He's very well behaved and a little shadow, interacting at every possible opportunity. Very different from Shiner's zen-like personality which is sort of like having a pet rock with hair.

Cooper, it's cold outside!

Cooper discovers Maine is a lot colder than Michigan. He has already located every heat vent in the house!



  1. The last photo - wow! So doggy.

  2. I've been wondering about Coopers migration to Maine. I had an image of him walking out of plane carrying his own backpack of books. Look forward to pet rock with hair adventures to the little dog that could, can, will!

  3. It's somewhat comforting to know that I am not the only object of Shiner's disdain---

    What a cutie. I look forward to seeing y'all on walks through the village

  4. He's looking very sassy in his blue collar. And quite at home. xo

  5. Blue ~ Ha! He is all dog and then some!

    home before dark ~ Watch this space :D !!!

    Dilettante ~ I'm sure you and Cooper will get along famously! Has now reached a state of wary acceptance with Shiner.

    Janet ~ Oh yes! Quite at home as you saw on Flickr!
