Cooper the St. Bernard, Riley’s New Puppy Sibling!

Eeeeeeek! I’m so excited to share this cute little fluffer-butt with you!! Are you ready for this blog post to make your day? ;)

You might remember Riley the border collie/husky mix from his session several months ago. I absolutely loved working with him – he’s a gorgeous dog – and I figured he’d never have any competition for the title of “most adorable” member of his family. Turns out, I thought wrong. He has serious competition… because his parents just adopted a St. Bernard puppy.

Cooper is the new puppy in the family, a too-cute-for-words ball of pure fluff! He’s already 40 pounds, at only a few months old, and he’s expected to tip the scales at 130-150 lbs when fully grown. He’ll be BIG – but I’m excited to watch him grow, since his parents are Clients for Life – which means I’ll get to see Cooper on a (somewhat) regular basis! I have a feeling he’s just going to get more & more handsome as he grows up, too… he has the sweetest demeanor, he just wants to snuggle and lay down all the time. He doesn’t run around like crazy, he doesn’t chew on things or bark; he’s just a well-behaved, calm puppy, and I’m pretty sure he spoiled me for working with any more puppies in the future since he was sooooo easygoing! Haha!


This photo is proof that A) Cooper is ridiculously adorable, and B) I have the best job in the world. Seriously.

We spent a lot of time sniffing & exploring. He’s a curious boy, but very content to just “be”, and he’s never far from his parents & brother. Cooper’s just happy to stay close and relax with his family!

Okay, okay, I couldn’t let Cooper have the whole spotlight today! Riley is such a beautiful boy. And he’s taken to being a caring, protective big brother for Cooper – they get along great and I even saw a flash of Riley’s protective instincts during our session when we passed by another dog. These two are going to grow up to be best friends. (Extremely fluffy best friends.)

Oh Cooper. You are too cute for words.
