Year of the Dog...

Yanks RV Resort
Greenfield, CA

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!


  1. He's a cutie but we're still at that stage of saying no thank you.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.

  2. Hopefully Cooper will learn how to write his own blog posts! Congrats on the new addition

  3. Boy is he cute. Nice Valentine's day present. Hope he turns out to be one of George's loves. After having had a farm and LOTS of animals including horses, dogs, cats, burros, chickens and geese we're absolutely convinced we do not need to be responsible for any lives other than our own any more. BUT we're always happy to see other people's pets and love them up. We love animals just don't want to have the responsibility any more.

  4. Uh oh, better not let Marti read this blog post... ;c)

  5. What a surprise! That little furball is adorable.

  6. Congratulations!!! He's SUCH a cutie pie!! We keep thinking we're fine with just our cats right now. And yet we still look at those darn SPCA websites. . .
