Meet our new family member

Most of you probably saw the post about Caroline, the dog we were going to adopt. Things did not work out with her, and now I know why. I believe everything happens for a reason...and this is that reason. Meet Cooper.
Cooper is a Jack Russell that just starting hanging around the neighborhood one day. It was obvious that he had been outside for a short while, but that he'd also been well cared for at some point.
All of the neighbors fed him and laid out towels for him to sleep on. For weeks, he'd come and go. We all tried to find his home and owner - newspaper ads, online ads, calling local vets, etc. But all to no avail.
So, Matt & I decided that we would take him in as our own. He was covered in fleas and ticks so we took him to the vet to get cleaned up. Now, he's a happy member of our family!!!
I love having a little "lap dog". He's so sweet and lovable. As you can see, Spencer loves him as well. Rio's reaction was a little iffy at first, but after a day, he seems to have accepted him as well. Cooper is house-trained, well-tempered, loves kids, tolerates other animals...overall, a really great dog! And the vet thinks he is only a year and a half old. We are looking forward to many happy memories with Cooper...and now I have to start a 2nd dog scrapbook.
I've included an update shot of Rio as well...can't have him feeling left out!
