Our Fur Child {Copper}

Last Thanksgiving we were eagerly awaiting the new addition to our family...

He is our Miniature Australian Sheppard and my absolute baby!

He was only a tiny 8 weeks old when he joined our home and our hearts haven't been the same!
I never, ever would have thought that I would love an animal so much.

Our joke is that Copper has no idea that he is a dog. 
As far as he is concerned he is as human as Drew and I.

 He loves to go places, anywhere!
He is super social and loves to be included.
At the lake he isn't a huge fan of getting in the water, but we're getting there. But he does like the social aspect of getting head rubs from person to person and rolling his ball around the boat. 
He also loves to go to the dock and have even more sniff play time with the other lake dogs.
 Recently I took him to Home Depot with me while I was getting a plant
and ended up getting several and pumpkins. Typical.
Well I couldn't push the cart, hold my purse, and have him on a leash so I thought what the heck I'll put him in the cart and see how he does. 
He loved it!
He laid in the bottom of it and enjoyed the ride.
Seriously, he has no clue he is a dog. 

As silly as it sounds I have plans to celebrate the little guy's 1 year next week.
Everyday I wake up with him wanting to snuggle and come home to lots of wiggles and excitement each day. Couldn't ask for a better best friend!

So this little fluff ball makes us one happy family!!


  1. He is so handsome and I love that he just sits in the cart like a kid would lol so cute!

  2. He's my best buddy and little shadow! He loves going anywhere with us. I love his little fluffy heart!

  3. What a cutie. Love that puppy photo! I celebrate my dog's birthdays :)
