Copper has been a great addition to our family
and it took less than minutes for him to melt our hearts.
He’s strong and has tested us, but he is so loving,
that we’re still amazed at how he acts and the things he does.
There once was a strong chocolate lab
his loving ways were simply fab
His color was unique
here are photos for a peek
his personality was far from drab
He loves chewing on his nylabones
and they’re the strongest to endure his choppers!
One of his favorite pastimes, besides watching squirrels
in the tree-house, is sunbathing!

What a cutie! xxx Happy Gotcha Day, Copper!
Aww…thanks, Red, and I love “Gotcha Day!” xoxo
You tugged at their hearts
so they took you home.
Now you frolic and play
where ever you roam.
It’s now been a year
and you’;re still going strong
And eating them
out of house and home!
Loved your poem, Sandra, thanks for sharing! xx
Has it been a year already? My goodness times flies! I do remember when you got Copper though, and was very happy you had!…He’s a fine dog, Lauren!
Happy Easter to you and your family!
Time does fly, Deb, and I remember when we brought him home like it was yesterday…thanks so much, my friend, and wishing you and your family a blessed Easter, too! xoxoxo
Isn’t Copper adorable? He looks very much like my dog Bonna. Congratulations to Copper and the proud owners! 🙂
Aww..thanks, Cynthia, and I’d love to see photos of Bonna, too! 🙂 xoxo
Fine puppy doggies…
Thanks so much, Lindy! 🙂
Aww. Congrats, Copper. Awesome dogs they are. I wanna get a black Lab. Awesome Limerick too.
Thanks so much, Albert, and I hope you get your lab soon. They make wonderful friends! 🙂
I know. I can’t wait.
A beautiful dog, Copper is. Beautiful poem. Suggestion you wrote the poem in past tense then end it in present tense. He’s still with us so why not keep the whole poem in the present? 🙂
Thanks so much, Kim, and actually, in writing this, the “tense” is more of telling the story about him, but not in a literal sense…the current verb is “are” when talking about the photos because they “are” in the this post, presently. I don’t know if this makes sense or if I’m wrong, but it’s just the way I wanted it to sound in the limerick…I do appreciate your comment, though. 🙂
It sounds good either way. 🙂
Thanks, I do appreciate your feedback and welcome it anytime! 🙂
A precious tribute! Happy anniversary to Copper and your family! XO
Thanks so much, Diane! xoxo
Awww…I love Copper. Does he give you lots of kisses with that tongue? 🙂
Thanks, Sheila, and yes, he loves to give kisses! 🙂
I think your dog wants to move to Copperopolis!
It would make sense! 🙂
Nice pics! Thanks for the reference.
