  • A weed is no more than a flower in disguise.
  • A Copperlicious Birthday


    Today, we celebrate the one year birthday (that’s 7 in dog years) of our Chiapoo, Copper. He joined our family last February, his little nose was smaller than a dime back then. My sweet little Chickeymonkey claimed him one Sunday afternoon while we were at our local garden and pet center. Her big eyes filled with tears, she had to have him, and Daddy wasn’t going to leave that store with our little monkey looking so pitiful.

    He’s spent the last several months napping. I think he’s nocturnal, but when I go to check on him in the middle of the night, he’s still sleeping. If he’s not sleeping, he’s our own personal little Roomba, with his nose to the floor and his tongue at the ready.

    This, this is our beloved little lap dog. He melded perfectly into our family, and he’s irresistible to boot.

    This is how Copper and his mom get along. They have a play or I’ll kiss you silly kind of relationship, which keeps her giggling, and keeps him active. He is a blur of fur, when he’s with her.

    Chickeymonkey wished her pup a Happy Birthday as soon as her eyes opened this morning, as he slept on her lap through the night last night.

    She gave him his first present, a purple fuzzy tug toy, which he really didn’t pay much attention to. I think he knew what was coming…

    You betchya. The bone. The BACON bone. MmmMMmm….. he quickly got to work.

    Gimme the bone back. Gimme the bone back. Gimme the bone back.

    Please gimme the bone back. Please gimme the bone back. Please. Please? Pleeeease?

    Aaaaah. A little prince and his bone. Happy Birthday, Copperhead.
