Really do miss my baby boy Cooper…. The house, just does not feel the same. Miss all hugs and kisses that he give me! He really was my best friend! Had so many great adventures over the years with him!
Many more photos, of Cooper can be found at
Sure by now, most of you will know that Cooper, my dog, my best friend, my wee baby. Passed away yesterday after a very short illness.
Just can’t believe he’s gone. He was my whole world, my reason for getting out of bed each morning. He was really the love of my life! People, he say he was only a dog. Any true dog lover, will know they are so much more. They really are man’s best friend!
Cooper, I will always, always love you! Hugs and Kisses! Gordon!! ! xx
