Our family arrived on Christmas Eve and left this morning.
When my niece walked in carrying a fish bowl in one hand and a bird cage in another, I knew it would be an interesting few days.
Cooper barely glanced at the fish but was fascinated by Morris, the love bird. I guess this is not surprising, since Cooper is a bird dog and chases birds any chance he gets.
For the first day Cooper just stared at the cage, creeping ever closer. Every time Morris sang, Cooper looked ready to pounce. Our niece kept saying. "Morris is not a toy".
To distract Cooper, our niece ran with him several times a day. As you can imagine, after all that exercise, Cooper is exhausted.
Santa brought Cooper several new toys for Xmas. The squeaky ball lasted exactly one minute before it was in pieces.
