Cooper, formerly Ohana
Posted on February 11, 2020
I adopted my sweet, sweet boy from PUP a couple of years ago when he was about 4-5 months old. His foster family named him Ohana, and then he became Cooper with me.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that he is doing really well. In fact, he is 100 or so pounds and tall enough that I can pet him while standing straight up, and he can lower his chin to rest on my dining room table.
He also is such an empathetic soul! I work in a learning center with kids who have various developmental or learning disabilities, and I also teach piano. Cooper does all of that with me, and he is a constant source of comfort and support for the kids I work with.
In fact, a student where I work is earning points for meeting her goals, and she is thinking her reward when she has reached her ultimate goal might be to donate to PUP! She is my colleague’s student, so I am not certain what exactly she has decided. My point is that Cooper has had a profound effect on not only my students, but on all students, staff and families involved in the learning center. I am forever grateful that I found him, and that I found you.
