A few of you commented on my last post that Cooper is getting big. Yes, he is! He is officially oversize so won't be going into the show ring. He and I will be starting a puppy class next week. When that's over, off to the vet he will go to be neutered. I'm just as glad that he's big as I wasn't sure how much energy I really had to do the showing. There are fewer shows now due to the economy so traveling becomes necessary to show a dog. I'm not a good traveler these days; I like the support of my carefully chosen chairs and my own bed. This fact makes me sad. I used to love going to shows and now I'm too tired to care.
