chat back for Feb. 23

Here are some answers to comments that were left on the blogiversary post.

Susanne asked, "How long does the cast have to stay on?

Hopefully just another week or so. Another x-ray three weeks after the injury will let us know if Cooper's leg has healed well.

Marguerite commented, "At least I don't have to take the cute pictures outdoors in the middle of the night.:-)"

Good point. I really didn't think that through very well. Although I'm not taking pictures in the middle of the night, I am out there a lot. There are easier times of the year for housetraining a puppy, that's for sure. All in all, though, this puppy has been a joy, middle of the winter not-withstanding.

Ouricmoff asked, "How old is the puppy?"

He is 13 1/2 weeks old. He was born on Nov. 21/09.

DebQ asked, "Does Cooper have Gary in his name anywhere? High Noon, right?"

No Gary, just the Cooper part. His registered name is WillowGlyn High Noon.

Lindsay said, "You're going to have to get him a set of steps for the bed!!"

Actually, steps were sort of what got him into this mess. There's a storage bench at the foot of the bed. He learned how to use it to jump up onto my high bed before he figured out a safe way of getting off again.

And just to show you that Cooper's splinted leg isn't slowing him down too much, here are a couple of pictures of him and Bentley playing hard together. There is a lot of wrestling and body slamming when they get going and Cooper's not complaining.

Dogs look so cute when they play, they are so into it.

I hate to tell you how often I have come here looking at photos of Cooper.

But the house-training thing did occur to me. Luckily, it doesn't last that long (God willing.)

Cooper looks like a real darling!

It is great that he's doing well, and that the splint isn't bothering him too much. If he's trying to be quiet, he's not listening to his doctor ;-)
