Quick Bio:

January 14th 2002

FOOD, Mommy and Daddy, Laying in the Sunshine, Laying on freshly dried laundry, New York Yankees, Going bye-bye in the car, Humping Doggie Bear, Licking the sheets, Going nite-nite baby dog, Eating Q-tips and Ripping farts that can clear a room!

Getting my nails trimmed, Touching my feet, Being ignored when I'm begging for food, Getting my toys taken away once the stuffing is coming out, The baby gate, Being left downstairs when everyone else is upstairs and Being left at home all alone!

Favorite Toy:
I have a basket full of toys, but my absolute favorite is Doggie Bear! I also like toilet paper, Q-tips, Chapstick, Plastic bottle caps and Mommies Juicy Tubes, which really makes her mad...but they taste SO GOOD!

Favorite Food:
Steak, Lamb, Cheese, Wendy's Chicken Nuggets, Pizza Bones (crust), Iams, Asparagus, Frosty Paws and ANYTHING we're eating!!!

Favorite Walk:
Around Compo Beach and West Woods where I climb on all the rocks and pee on EVERY tree, even when I have no pee left! As well as to bed when it's nite-nite baby dog time!

Best Tricks:
High Five, Go Yankees (he gives high five), Sit, Stay, Fetch, Drop it, Dance Pretty and Pug Hug (he lays on your chest and puts his paws around your neck!)

Arrival Story:
My husband and I had an appointment to go look at a house that we were thinking about renting. We had an hour to kill before meeting with the landlord so we decided to stop into the local pet store to get some ferret food for our three ferrets. While we were there, my husband spotted Cooper and pointed him out to me. He was only 8 weeks old and so cute and chubby! I insited on holding him and fell in love immediatly. He kept giving me stinky puppy breath kisses as if to say PLEASE take me home...PLEASE! I begged my husband to get him for me, but since we were on our way to look at a new rent, we weren't sure if they allowed dogs. The first thing we asked our new landlord was if he allowed dogs. He said as long as it was a small breed it would be fine. We ZOOMED back to the pet store only to find someone else holding Cooper. My heart sank thinking they had beat us to him. Fortunalty for us we wrote the check out faster! He's been our baby boy ever since. I know buying puppies at pet stores is bad and that it supports puppy mills, but I just couldn't leave that store without him!

Cooper is the funniest most lovable pug ever! He gets along great with people and dogs! He is such a cuddlier! He loves to sleep right in between me and my husband and won't get out of bed until we do! Cooper will literally sleep until noon without getting up once to go potty! We take him EVERYWHERE with us...he loves going to PetCo and Petsmart as well as Home Depot and any other stores that allow dogs! Cooper also loves going through the drive-thru of McD's or Wendy's cause he knows if he puts on enough PUG charm, they'll give him a chicken nugget! He is such a clown...he's always doing something to make us laugh! We're convinced that if he had a voice, he'd sound like Cartman from Southpark! We love Cooper so much and consider him our "first born". He has truly captured our hearts and turned us into " Crazy Pug People"! One thing we know for sure...there will always be a pug in our home! We can't imagine living without this wonderful breed in our lives!

It's been SO nice here in CT for the past few days! Sunny and 60 degrees! I love when it's warm outside! I'm not much of a winter Pug...I don't love the cold and I REALLY don't love the snow. Yesterday it was bootaful outside...mommy came home for lunch and took me for a walk around the neighborhood. There were so many new things to smell! I had lots and lots of pee mail to check! I met two new fwends on our walk yesterday. One was a Aerdale and the other one was a Golden Retreiver. I think I heard mommy say that she's gonna come home for lunch today too! It's gonna be even nicer today than it was yesterday! It may get up into the 70's!!! I hope I see my fwends again on our walk! I can't wait!!! I better rest up so I have lots of energy! Hope all you doggies out there are enjoying spring! Remember to stop and smell the flowers! Oh yeah...don't forget to SPRING forward this weekend!!! Isn't daylight savings time great :)

Pugs and Kisses!
Cooper Potts!

Sometimes I wonder why mommy and daddy even bothered naming me Cooper...they hardley ever call me by my real name! I know there's a spot on my page specifically for nicknames, but I have so many I thought I'd make a list of the ones that did't fit under the nicknames criteria! Here they are:

1. Gigabyte
2. Magiggs
3. Chimichanga
4. Mr. Mastapholese
5. Mr. Magoo or just Magoo
6. Muggo
7. Potato
8. Pugaluca
9. Flahmiggs
10. Chunker Monkey
11. Banana Head
12. Coo-ka-munga
13. Goomba Charlie
14. Sausage
15. Mugalicious or Pugalicious
16. Sniffy Snifferstein
17. Lazy Layzo
18. Stink Butt
19. Piggy Puggo
20. Stinky Pug Breath
21. Coopynoopelton
22. Sniffy Snifferstein
23. Chunk Butt
24. Doggie Wogger
25. Punga Munga

Those are just the ones I can remember...I think they really only call me Cooper when I've been naughty. Funny thing too, is that I answer to all of my nicknames! Mommy and daddy are silly...but I still love them ;)

Pugs and Kisses!
Cooper aka "all of the above" Potts

So mommy and daddy haven't gone grocery shopping in a few weeks and they ran out of my wet dog food! At first I was kinda mad...I thought I was gonna get stuck eating plain old kibbles! Then I saw mommy come in with a can in one hand the can opener in the other hand. When I went to my bowl to see what I got I almost couldn't believe my eyes! SHE GAVE ME TUNA FISH!!! YIPPIE!!! Boy oh Boy was IT good!!! The next day I was super shiny too! I hope they don't ever go shopping again...that is unless we run out of tuna ;)
