When we started full timing 6 years ago,
we both said we wouldn't get a fur baby.
I've never had a dog, only cats,
and George said 'he did his time' with dogs.
Meet Cooper! (Mini Cooper :-)
He's a Maltipoo.
Norma's sister's dog had puppies back in December,
and I'd been vying for one since.
Since we're sitting in California for awhile,
I figured it was time :-)
He was born on December 20th,
and Norma delivered him to me on Valentine's Day!
He's learning to sleep longer overnight in his crate.
and we're learning his signals to 'do his business'
and get him outside before too many accidents.
George, who initially wasn't on board with this decision,
is warming up to it :-)
We signed up for Petsmart's wellness plan,
which is great!
For a monthly fee, he gets all his shots,
neutering when it's time,
and deworming, flea checks, etc.
They have an unlimited visit policy if we have questions as well.
We'll try not to keep the blog all about Cooper,
but it will be hard!
