Copp is a redbone coonhound, we figure he's around 9 years old now, and while he definitely has his issues (being born in a puppy mill, used as a stud-dog - that'll do some damage to a dog psyche) he's also an incredibly sweet, patient, loving dog. He loves to snuggle, and while he's not very "lick-y", he will rub his head against you, and 'snuffle' you (smell your face) if he likes you. He's a sweetheart.
So, every Feb 15 we celebrate the day that our little family grew. He's our .5 (y'know, white picket fence, 2.5 kids... still waiting on that fence tho'). And we love him.
He made himself comfortable pretty soon after we got him.
Our first Christmas with Copper
Got along well with the kiddos right off
Loves the cottage... even though he couldn't swim at first
All smiles in the sunshine.
Me, the Hubs and our 2.5. :)
It wouldn't be the same without him...
Happy Copper-Dopper Day!
