My story with Dave, the kids, Cooper, VW's & rugby

An Update on Cooper

It’s been a while since I have done a blog post with some Cooper pictures on, so the other day at lunchtime we took the camera to capture a few new shots of him. He is about 7 months old now and I couldn’t imagine our family without him. It is hard work having a dog, but Cooper brings lots of fun and love. He comes to the office everyday with us so at lunchtime we tend to go out along the river and into the nearby fields for a walk.

This is generally what I look like most days, whether its walking the dog or at the rugby club, I never seem to be out of my big coat and wellies at the moment.

This is Cooper now (the last pictures I posted was when he was 3 months old)




Cooper has found his love for fetching a ball and he loves nothing better than when the ball is kind of lost in the long grass so he can sniff it out. This is Cooper flying after his ball


and here he comes chasing back with it


In the Summer we had some lovely walks, but I am really loving Autumn as everything changes so quickly and I just love the autumnal leaves, and so does Cooper.

    It’s so lovely reading your blog as in 4 days time we will be collecting Henry our chocolate working cocker spaniel. He is 8 weeks and looks identical to Cooper. We are filled with the same antisipation and excitement as you. So much will change and my two children are 15 and 17 who like your boys will be very much involved with my husband and I. We have got everything ready the past 5 weeks and a consistent schedule as well as lots of love and fun!!
    Just wanted to say thank you as I found your posts very helpful and just lovely! Your family look lovely and cooper is a lucky boy.

    Thank you Becky- we definitely will and our lives will change now – can’t wait!! Wish I could post a photo as you’ll see how much they are alike. Cooper’s coat is amazing 🙂
