Coming Home in 3 weeks

We’re now in countdown mode getting set for bringing Cooper home. We went to see him again today, to have a cuddle and here are a few of the pictures. You can see he has grown again and today all the puppies were out playing and their tails didn’t stop wagging 🙂

Cooper at 4 weeks

Today we visited Cooper again after our week away on holiday and he was now toddling around and getting much bigger and stronger. He is now 4 weeks old and today was out on the grass and very cuddly. We went to Pets at Home this morning too and it reminded me of our trips to Mothercare when I was pregnant with the boys..we are busy preparing for the new arrival 🙂

We had a little visit to see Cooper again today, and he’s grown in a week. He now has his eyes open and they are blue. He’s very cuddly and very cute.
Here are some of the new pictures

So We’re Getting a Puppy!

It’s something that we have been thinking about for the last few years and kept putting off, but we have taken the leap and decided to finally get a puppy that will be joining our family towards the end of June when he’s ready to leave his mum. Now that the kids are old enough to take some responsibility for the puppy it will be a good addition to the family, and will fit in with our lifestyle getting lots of good walks and playtime. You never know he may become the office dog too 🙂 We’ve decided on a chocolate brown Cocker Spaniel.

So here he is today chilling out at just 5 days old, born on Saturday .. May 4th … (May the 4th be with you!)

So then we have to think of a name … the one that we have been thinking of recently is Cooper … this is my maiden name, and also one of Miles’ middle names .. its a good solid name, that if I had to call across a field I wouldn’t feel an idiot.

When I did a search for “cool dog names” today the top site had this list of popular names

cool dog names

and OMG what happened to be in position 13th … our lucky number .. but Cooper. Seemed a bit like destiny somehow.. but we kind of feel that he deserves a Star Wars themed name too (May the Forth (May 4th) be with you!) … so some of Dave’s suggestions are

Cooper Chewbacca (maybe Chewy for short)
“C”ooper 3PO (C3PO)
Cooper Trooper
Chewy Cooper-Bacca
Darth Cooper
Cooper the Hut
Master Cooper
Cooper Skywalker

Any other suggestions??

We’ll be regularly visiting the puppy so I’ll take some more pictures as he grows 🙂
