Meet Cooper (Aka Coopernikis)


Recommended Posts

As a greyhound adoption group here in Montreal we occasionally get calls from other groups, shelters and the like about greyhound who had been found but this was the first time we got a call about a greyhound who had been unceremoniously dumped at a "kill shelter" (why do I think that this is an oxymoron, but, in the immortal words of Joe T Reporter, I digest.... )

 

We picked up "Sugar" a beautiful 11 year old fawn brindle and brought him home. We knew that adopting out an 11 year old could be tricky so we agreed to keep him here, happy and healthy until he could no longer enjoy his time on earth.

 

We renamed him Cooper thanks to our fondness for Sheldon of the BBT, but watching Cooper daily with his soul-searching gaze, calm and serene, we slowly changed it to Coopernikis as the guy loves to "Stare into Space"

 

Poor guy had to have all his teeth removed they were SO disgusting (and his breath - PHEW!) plus he's on tramadol and metacam for his wonkly back end.

 

We don;t know how long he will be with us and I am dreading the winter as he is quite frail, but for now we are making sure he has everything he needs and is enjoying his old age and hopefully he has forgotten his past.

 

 

Meet Coopernikis...

Congratulations on the new addition to the family. His health may slowly improve now, but I guess that depends a lot on how much care or lack of care was provided by previous owners. Hopefully he has many many good days left.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

Dr. Rocket prescribes lots of scrambled eggs, cottage cheese and other things he can eat without teeth. He also wrote a double prescription for ice cream. :bgeorge

Teeth are all gone and he STILL loves his kibble albeit slightly mushy (but if Miz Boofay takes too long with her unsoaked kibble he will push her out of the way and dive right in LOL)

 

OK More pix:

Don't really have any of him standing up - he doesn't do much of that these days ...

 

 

 

 

Oh and he LOVES the ladies! Especially the ones wearing short skirts. He will kinda sorta attempt to get his needle nose under the skirt... he's our very own dirty old man :beatheart

So glad you have him! He looks like a beautiful soul & as others have said he may get stronger with good food as I've been told by 2 vets older dogs need a higher protein food. Noelle can atest to this new food as she is much better now. Please give this boy a hug for me.
