Where did the past few days go?

We've been very busy the last few days and they seem like they have passed with the wink of an eye. I've already told you about our FUN Friday. Yesterday we slept in a little bit. Eric & Parker went to see Hotel for Dogs and Jake went to the movies with friends. I just hung home with Dori to make sure she was OK. She seemed to be doing well so we decided to go to the Humane Society to see if there were any dogs we liked. We looked at a bunch of dogs and ended up picking out a Cocker Spaniel mix that is very cute! They named him Nibbles, but we are renaming him Cooper. We want the name to be longer. We are thinking Cooper von _______ _______ or Cooper de la ______ ________. We aren't sure but we want a fun long goofy name for him. Dori & I think he's too cute to be a boy, so we plan on putting bows in his hair or on his collar. LOL! I guess sort of a cross dressing dog! Anyway we need help with naming the dog. Please leave your name suggestions in this post and if we use one of them then I will send the suggester some sort of prize. Here is a pic of Cooper~Last night I slept very well and felt like I was recovering from Friday, but then I donated blood and I am feeling a little week and mellow. It's super warm here too...but I refuse to turn on the A/C in April. I struggle to turn it on in May!!! We've been cleaning and straightening and also relaxing. I went through my clothes and pulled a lot out to send to Goodwill.

I need to go pick up our teen at a friends and then get back for dinner. My sis and her family are coming over and we are going to BBQ. Then it's Amazing Race! w00t!! I think that Jen/Kesha will be the next to go. Speaking of about that blindside of Tyson on Survivor???

  1. Cooper de la Pooch? Cute dog. Glad Dori is on the mend.

    Just watched last weeks AR on the computer and can't wait until tonights. LOVED Tyson getting kicked off, but to me, it would have been more funny to blindside Coach...

  2. Cooper von Floofin Stein


    He's a total cutie, though, seriously! (Floof is my all-time favorite word. I use it to describe my kitty Scooter, because he's a long-haired tabby and he's got lots of extra floof!)


  3. Sounds like you have been busy..
    Glad Dori is feeling better...
    Have a great evening..
    Cute doggy...

    Sir Copper ala Cockerspanglish Hansen....

  4. Cooper!!! I love the name...!!!

    May Cooper Bring you and your family many many years of fun!

  5. Cute doggie and name.
    I'm glad your baby is doing better.

  6. You might end up calling him Cooper Von Pooper.I hope he won't be that kind of dog. He is so cute. I'm like you, I just hate turning on the air in April.

  7. Oh man, we run our air-conditioner in January, but we do live in Florida ;)
    So glad to see Tyson gone, now I hope they'll wise up and get rid of coach.
