Copper, “It’s all about me”
Lauren (mom), “You’re absolutely right!”
If you’re a dog owner you’ll relate to your pup wanting to be fed, eager to fetch, ready for walking, longing for his/her belly rubbed, anxious to play and cuddle, i.e. it’s all about them! It’s up to us, their owners, to provide the best, loving home so they feel safe and secure.
However, when you flip the coin, our time with them is more about us because all they want is to please their owners; to make their families happy. They look at us with those eyes that melt our hearts from the first meeting and there’s no turning back. They can sense our moods and they have our backs.
I’ll use one example using my dog, Copper, when he hears any of his family crying. He’ll walk over to us, rest his head on our leg and look up with his amber eyes as if to say, “I’m here for you.”
Their unconditional love is a gift to be cherished. If you’re a dog or cat owner, I’d love to hear your thoughts, too. ♥
I would like to thank Jean at https://socialbridge.wordpress.com/ for tagging me in this photo challenge.
Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge.
(I’m unable to post each day so mine are days apart, which is alright if posting each day is difficult for you, too.)
My second nomination for the challenge is Scott over at http://worldiction.com/.

Do you have a family member or friend who is constantly taking photos? Do you have moments when you just don’t want to be the subject? I do, I have and I’ve been the guilty one clicking away.
Copper’s been in our family for over three years now and I think we’ve taken about a million photos of him (slight exaggeration). But for those of you who own pets, don’t you agree there can never be too many pictures of our furry friends?
I took the first three when he had better things to do (like chew on his bone). However, he complied but not without attitude. 🙂 He weighs about 74 lbs, is tall and lean and all muscle, which is why this first photo makes me smile. In the photos following, you’ll see his true self.
“Time’s almost up”
and now some photos from my son…
and lastly, with me
I hope you enjoyed this peek into Copper’s life
and I wish you a smooth and peaceful start to your new week!
Lots of Love, Lauren 🙂 ♥
Please Welcome, Copper, the chocolate lab!
He’s 18 months old, very lovable, cuddly,
calm and gentle. He needs to put on a few more pounds,
but other than that, he’s healthy and just a big, goofy boy!
We’re adopting Copper on a trial basis,
with hopes of keeping him, if all works out.
We hope it does because we’ve all just about
fallen in love with him.
Lucky Girl will remain
in our hearts, but the timing is right
to start new again
with another canine friend.
We’ll be in an adjustment period and I’m already behind
in reading blogs, because of “doggie” searching.
So, my time may be limited, but I will still do my best to visit you!
I hope you understand and I wish you all a wonderful,
peaceful Wednesday! xo
