so far none
Nyla bone, shoes, and whatever else is lying around waiting for him.
so far everything including carrots and tomatoes
not yet, he is healing.
he will deliver toys to daddy from children or mommy in another room.
Hank needed a nail trim, and this kid needed a home. He had been hit by a car 2 weeks prior and was waiting for a solution before the shelter became the solution.We met, he wrapped his arms around my neck (sitting on the floor), licked my face, and hopped in the car. His right front leg has a plate in it to help stabilize his injury. We are waiting to run, waiting to go to the dog park, and waiting for many other adventures!
He is like a mini rott, so his name is Cooper like a mini Cooper. He is built and colored like one, but very small in frame.

Dad pulled the big machine out of the shed. It roared and spit stuff up in the air so I barked at it. Then dad pulled out a little growling stick that cut more grass by all my fenceposts...so I barked at it and growled REALLY fiercely because I did not like that machine...THEN DAD GOT ANOTHER LITTLE MACHINE AND SHAVED MY BUDDY HANK! I JUST LOOKED AT HIM LIKE, "you're really letting them do that to you???" Hank is just the bravest dog in the world. I don't love growling, chopping machines. They left half of Hank unshaved so I have something to chew on when we play. I'm going on day 3 of not chewing up a stuffie. My leg infection is almost all healed. I take my pills like a boss. I am happy.

Ruff has had it rough...that's why the vet named him that. Then we claimed him; how could I not bring home this sweet little guy who put his paws around my neck upon first meeting? Husband said, Hmmmmm why do we have another dog in the house? We talked about this, why? I said, well, he can go find another home Monday if you'd like. Husband named him Cooper a few hours later. Ruff still responds to Ruff, ESPECIALLY if you roll the Rrrrrruff! Then Cooper is a convenient middle name for when he chews things, pardon, eviscerates things, which is ALL.THE.TIME. I have an immaculate house only out of desire to keep things and not find them shredded. He REALLY likes chewing ears off stuffies, we have unfortunately encountered. So my sewing skills are at their peak for the sake of rapid return to a crying child. The children have learned...pick up your toys. YAY!
Ruff was hit by a car on Feb. 27, 2013. He was then taken to a vet who did his leg surgery, then relocated to my animal clinic where we met when Hank had his nails trimmed almost a month later. We were told he was covered in ticks, unaltered, and starving upon arrival. The antibiotics he came home with caused really awful potty problems. They were discontinued and his lab work is clear for any erlichia. The leg injury is triangular on his right front radius. He has a plate with screws that are irritating the ulna. This has recently caused a suture line infection from the irritation and licking. He is now on more antibiotics which have cleared up 3/4 of our Easter Day infection. He felt pretty rough and stopped chewing things for about 48 hours with that infection. The vet says there is still a chance of having to remove his hurt leg, but it's doubtful. The current xrays are showing progress towards healing. Time will tell.
Initially I believed Ruff to be a small Rottweiler, maybe some doberman? He has a Shepherd tail and ears. his tongue has black spots. Today though, since he has filled out more with good groceries, I saw a heeler frame, heeler ears, heeler paws, and heeler snout. His coloring is from a Rott or Dobi...his bark is a shepherd's bark. I want to have him genetically tested to see what else is in the pot. If you are reading this and have advice on canine genetic testing, please message us.
