Cooper was part of our family for almost 12 yrs. He joined us in Arizona as "Ashton", a 2 yr old problem child and left us on an island in the Pacific Northwest as a wonderful companion. Once he realized his purpose was to take care of me, he was awesome. He loved running, swimming, and long walks. He was my third Golden rescue and like his brothers, he was beautiful, intelligent, loving, loyal, gentle ... perfect. I still miss him every day.
