COOPER'S CORNER: I did it!

NOTE: Cooper's Corner is written in the voice of 8-year-old rescue dog, Cooper. When you respond, remember you are speaking to him and he will answer accordingly. * * * * * Hi everyone! Cooper here! Well, I did it! I got my bath and my haircut and my nails cut. I didn't like it, when they cut my nails, and I still screamed and cried, but they didn't listen to me. Not like the last time when they stopped four nails in. They cut a lot of hair off of me, but I'm still a little fuzzy. Mom said it was okay to leave some fuzz on me because she thinks I'm cute with a little fuzziness. But they took a lot of the hair off my face, so the hair doesn't stick into my eyeballs. Mom said that will make it easier for her to keep my face clean with a washcloth because I get a lot of eye goobers. They also cut a lot of my whiskers and my beard off because that gets into the food and water. So, Mom said that will help me be able to keep cleaner. I have to go eat dinner now! I hope everybody has a good night. Photos were taken and the collage was made by my mom.

You look really dapper now. I'm glad they were able to do all that needed to be done, even if you didn't like it.

Goldie didn’t like it, either. Is there some rule in the doggie book that you must raise a stink about grooming? I think Joe Cocker said it best: you are SOOOO beautiful, Cooper!

You are such a handsome lil' dude, Cooper. You can strut out with anyone with those looks. Do you have a girlfriend? I would imagine as handsome as you are, you would have them chasing you everywhere! I hope you got a wonderful dinner after such a hard day. Mom's right, you need a bit of fuzzies, just because. Not every dog is cute enough to carry off such good looks.

@TheSojourner Cooper, if I lived close to you, Mom wouldn't like me, because I know for certain I would spoil you rotten!

@TheSojourner Cooper, it would be wise to wait until charges would actually be filed against you. Otherwise they just charge you to hold onto something that may not happen.

You did it, Cooper ! Oh you look so nicely trimmed and spiffy . . . don't you just feel amazing? I know the process was not exactly "entertaining", but you'll see how it's all worth it - I'm sure your mom knows . Hope you both had a good night !

@TheSojourner You are lucky to be able to sleep so well. I hope your mom had some good zzzzzs too. Why did you not eat your breakfast? Wow, you must've been seriously tuckered out from the day before!!

Hi Cooper, you look beautiful with your new haircut. I agree with your Mom your are cute with a little fuzziness, but cutting more on your face is a great idea, easier to keep your eyes and mouth clean every day. Sorry you screamed and cried when they cut your nails, I know it is annoying, but necessary.

Thank you, Miss anna. I can already tell that I'm going to be more comfortable with shorter hair. And it is kind of nice to not have my hair sticking inside my eyeballs.

@TheSojourner Having your hair sticking inside your eyeballs was surely a major problem, I am glad you feel already more comfortable.

You look Handsome Cooper! I know you don’t like your nails being messed with. It’s probably a bit frightening for you. You need to learn to relax, so you can be pampered like the King you are!

Cooper you are such a good looking dog. You will be a lot cooler in the summer with your hair cut short.

Well, don't you look cute?!!! You were very brave. Maybe next time you get your nails cut, you won't scream so much?

I doubt that, Miss Linda! Sometimes if I scream loud enough they don't do it! So I get what I want. And then they hug on me and give me treats because they think they've hurt me. Thank you for saying that I'm cute. I really liked the little scarf they put on my neck. It was fun
