Some very, very sad news… Cooper has passed away

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
