Good Thoughts and Prayers Appreciated



As most of you know we adopted little Cooper a week ago.  

This sweet little bundle of joy.  We took him to our Vet to have him checked over.  With Cooper being a rescue dog we did not have any history on him except that he was tethered outdoors  24/7 and he was 7 years old.  So after our Vet gave him a through exam she found a tumor on his face that she did not like how it looked.  So tomorrow this little guy will be having it surgically removed.  We are hoping it is not anything bad.  The Vet did take some sample fluid out of the tumor and looked at it under a slide.  She said she did see come concerning cells so we will see what pathology says once it is removed and sent in.
So please remember little Cooper in your thoughts and prayers as you go about your day tomorrow.

The other issue they found with this guy is he had broken all his teeth in the front of his mouth and the back teeth were not looking very good either.  So after we see what will happen with the tumor surgery tomorrow we will then tackle his teeth.

Poor guy with them having him on a chain the Vet said he probably was chewing on the chain and that is what broke most of his teeth.  He also probably did not have a healthy  diet.  The Vet felt pretty good she could save his back teeth that he uses to eat.  So far he has been eating his wet and dry dog food mixture.

We love this little guy so much and even with all these things going on he does not seem bothered by anything.  Just loves to be loved.

Little Cooper might have to get some Doggie Dentures like these!








Thanks for the good thoughts and best wishes for Cooper.
Have a good week.
Kris

  3. Just came to the blog to see how everyone was doing. Poor little guy...but he sure did get a break with having you as his human parents. Hope all goes well with the pathology and that his dental issues are correctable. Diet is so important for good health, as you very well know as a nurse. Fingers crossed for some good news.

  4. My heart is praying for you dearest Kris. But you know, these animals teach us so much. NO complaints, just love. Just love....

    Please let me know how you are doing? Any news yet on Terry?

  5. I hope things turn out well with Cooper and everything is treatable. What an awful thought that he was chewing on his chain! He couldn't have been adopted by a more caring family. I'll be thinking of you today.

    Let us know.

  13. Aw, I'm so happy you adopted him he deserves a good family that can care for him. He is one lucky dog :)

  14. Oh poor baby! I hate hearing this news. But I know he is still so lucky to have y'all for parents now. He will receive the care that he needs. It pains me to hear that he probably hurt is teeth by chewing on a chain. That is so cruel. We once had an outdoor bird dog for hunting but we used the invisible fence system so he was never tethered. He would also come inside when it was real cold. But now I couldn't have an outdoor dog. I want them with us at all times. I hope cooper can be treated successfully for everything.

  17. Kris, I have tears in my eyes imagining this sweet little guy tethered 24/7. How can anyone treat an animal so badly? I am praying Cooper comes through all this and goes on to live a long life with his new mum and pop. Hugs, Nancy

  19. Oh, that sweet boy! The vets findings must have been very emotional for you- I'm praying that the news comes back that all is well. I get so upset that people are so cruel to innocent animals that just want love. I'm so glad that Coop is in your loving care, Kris. Kisses from me to that smooshy sweet face!��
    Xoxo, T.

  25. Kris,
    Cooper, sweet Cooper, another obstacle in his difficult 7 years. Many many prayers are being sent up for him. Kris, God knows that you and Terry will do whatever you both can do to always love, provide and care for Cooper in his forever home. I'd say little Cooper's prayers have already been answered but now it's our turn to send prayers up for this sweet guy who is graced to have you both. We all look forward to his recovery from his past and to enjoy his future in your new nest. Somehow I feel you have another photo bomber who has already stolen our hearts in Blogland.
    Sending love,
    Vera

  28. Prayers for little Cooper. We just recently adopted a shelter dog who is heartworm positive. She will get her first shot on Monday and another two in May. I hear the shots are very hard on them. I hope Cooper's prognosis is good. He is already surrounded by love and that's the best we can give these pups who have had rough starts in life.

  31. We're praying for Cooper's health to be restored. He looks like such a sweet dog! I wish all dog owners were as kind and caring as you. We love our dogs so much. They are family! We still get tears sometimes when we think about our dogs who are in "Doggie Heaven". Pets are such a blessing. Take care and keep us posted.

  37. Boy, haven't you had more than your fair share of bad luck! Bless you for adopting an older dog. I adopted a 7 year old dog years ago, and it was just the best dog. Well, Abi had a cancer scare in her mouth when they cleaned her teeth a few weeks ago. And poor Charlie is down to 2 teeth. They manage. Though I often have to hold Abi so he can get his food down. I was a nervous wreck of course, but it wasn't cancer. I hope the same for sweet Cooper.

  52. Poor little guy! Bless you for giving him a home and for taking such care of him ~

    I believe people who do those sorts of things to animals should have the same things done to them; not a very "nice" way of thinking, but it just makes my blood boil!

    Sending good thoughts to Cooper and to all in his new family for the best results `~
    Please keep us posted.

  53. Oh my God seems to be testing you, but you both are coming through with flying colors...I am so sorry to hear this about Cooper. Want a sweetheart and hope he comes through surgery well and his health will improve...Having Ginger our rescue dog we shower our love on her and have no doubt you and Terry do too for however long we are lucky to be their fur parents.

  54. Dang it, Kris. He is such a sweet guy and is just the right thing to round out your family. Hope the surgery goes well and that he will be healthy and healed. Kai has a hard time eating too as he has lost a lot of his teeth and where he needs them the most to chew, there are only big empty spaces on both sides of his mouth. He does pretty well, but we can't give him anything too hard or large. Praying for little Cooper and it is so good that he has the loving home that he deserves now..xxo Judy
