Yes we still call him Cooper along with a number of other nick names (he’s quite the character)
Yes, Cooper has had GI issues that we are currently working with our vet to determine the best course of treatment. We have narrowed down the issues and should have it under control in the near future.
Cooper has been good with friends and we we are working on him with other animals (he can be a little rough with the smaller dogs). He gets along great with his sister (Shea who we adopted from NJ Boxer Rescue)
He is eating 5 cans of Royal Canin Low fat GI wet (prescription food) per day due to his GI issues. He still is slightly underweight due to his GI issues.
Weather permitting we go on three walks per day and he loves running in the yard and playing with his sister, football, soccer ball and tether ball....On the weekends we visit various parks in the area. We try to mix it up for a variety of walks.
I have a friend that is not a dog person at all, but from the first time Cooper met him they’ve had a connection. My friend has warmed up to Cooper and they even sit together on my couch whenever my friend comes over....it’s really funny to see....Cooper plops down right next to him and puts his head on his lap...
