In Memory of Cooper

COOPER was a long-haired dachshund adopted by our friends Bob and Arlene Brown in Md. We learned today from his adopted parents that his health had deteriorated to the breaking point. Cooper was put to sleep today and gave his parents a little wag of the tail at the end as a way to thank them for the loving home they gave Cooper.
   Cooper came to us as a senior foster dog through Coast to Coast Dachshund Rescue. Cooper was found 2 years ago wandering the streets of northern New Jersey during a snowstorm, and saved by the rescue.
   Bob and Arlene took him in with the heart condition he had. They gave him a loving home for the last 2 years of his life and he was such a great boy. Bob and Arlene so lovingly adopted Cooper because their other long-haired Dachshund at the time, Lucy, also had the same heart condition. Lucy was also blind, and Bob and Arlene told us how Cooper would lead Lucy around and watch over her. Lucy passed last year and today was Cooper's time to go. 
  We are deeply saddened by his passing as Cooper became part of our family, too. We know that Cooper is back together with Lucy and they're walking side by side again.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
