Cooperpup ~ Head of Quality Control
Cooper is my very own, funny, happy, cheeky, lovable rouge. He has had fantastic training & grounding in the business from 7 weeks old guided by his elder bro's Baby Gabe & Sammy Boy who have sadly now passed over to rainbow bridge. Although strictly speaking Cooper is no longer a pup he was the youngest member of our fur family & although he has risen to the rank of Head of QC he is very much still in "puppy mode". A rather large, Long Coated German Shepherd who loves his food, cuddles & lots of play time. Treats are a serious business to him & with his strong jaws & velocity at devouring treats he provides me with very descriptive imagery (the amount of drool!) of just how good the treat is & how long it takes to eat a good proper chew! His input is as valuable to me as is his love & our mutual devotion to each other.
When it comes to his healthcare regime I am all about the natural approach too, why would I put anything nasty into his body that could cause a reaction if I didn't have to..... He is a super shiny, super bright, energetic & very healthy youngster :) He is testament to the fact that from a little puppy bear I have only ever used all natural; wormers, teeth cleaning, flea & tick control, shampoo (& boy did we do a lot of bathing in the early, messy months), ear & eye drops to keep him happy & in tip top condition. I monitor (nearly) everything that goes into his body & certainly everything that comes out... good firm poo's = a lovely healthy digestion ( I'm sorry to mention poo but it really does tell you a lot about their general health & condition). Cooper has gone from being the youngest of 3 to being my current one & only fur kid. He has adapted wonderfully to all the changes & bereavements (probably better than I) & has reassured me that he is "Up to the job of Head of QC & can fit it in to his busy schedule" which I think means just cutting out a bit of kip time or maybe a bit less barking at passers by through the gate!
