FC: How Cooper Sees It
1: "Do you even listen to yourself when you talk?" - Brian Griffin (Family Guy)
2: Hello. My name is Cooper Olverd and I would like to share my fascinating life with you, through verse
4: When my new family brought me home, I was a little bit skeptical. Everybody was looking at me, like I was some kind of spectacle.
5: Eventually, I learned that lounging around wasn't so bad. | Especially when I hung out with my super cool dad.
6: I started getting good at finding all of the places I shouldn't be
7: So my Mommy went right out and bought a great big pillow for me.
8: Soon, it was time to walk the neighborhood and find some new friends to meet. I was getting a little bored with my friends with two feet.
10: Sometimes, I don't understand what people are saying.
11: Other times, I just ignore them.
13: Mommy always dresses me in the cutest outfits. If you think you can dress me better, I really doubt this.
15: Sometimes when Mommy is on the phone, she says, "Cooper! Danielle and Leah are coming home!!" I get so excited, it never fails. My whole body shakes when I wag my tail. As soon as they're home, I run and get my ball. I can't reach my cookies, so I'm sure glad they're tall. They always love when I learn new tricks and shower them with kisses (but no licks!)
16: When my family packs their bags, it sure makes me sad, but when they take me along, it really isn't that bad.
17: Riding in the car really is a bore... | ...but it all turns out okay when I see Ruby waiting at the door.
18: Danielle and I are buddies and have some bad sleeping habits When I dream my legs move cause I think I'm chasing rabbits
19: Whenever Danielle and I lounge around, Mommy says I need some boxers | I find that incredibly rude
20: Oh yes, yes, yes, we all know whose dog I really am. | We all know who feeds me, walks me, plays with me, loves me, and screams at me for barking past 10pm.
22: And if you think that this is the face I wake up with every morning, You should see how Mommy really gets me going.
23: Mommy always tells me: "Even if you don't feel good, if you look good, you'll feel better." | but I still don't think I can stand another moment getting wetter.
24: I really like playing in the snow | The winter months are my favorite
25: I'll lick and munch the fluffy stuff | and wish that I could save it
27: In rain or shine, I roam the neighborhood on my daily walks. If I'm lucky, I get cookies while Mommy stops and talks and talks.
28: Let us take a brief pause to give my cuteness an applause
31: Sometimes their sense of fashion is off, but they're not the worst. I am so happy another family didn't find me first!
32: There's no better place to watch my shows than a nice cozy bed, but I enjoy pressing pause and playing ball instead.
33: Thank you for reading the thoughts in my head, I'd appreciate you reading it to me each night before bed I'm sorry for barking and biting and such and I just wanted to say | that I love you all very very much It's not really a secret that my favorite food is cheese or that I've figured out how to spell it by now : C-H-E-E-S-E Maybe next time we're together you can shut off the tv, I'm sorry for making noise during your favorite episodes of Dancing with the Stars and Family Guy, | but if you'd get off the couch for once, maybe we'd all be in better shape. | Cooper | P.S. If you're not going to stop watching tv, you might as well share your ice cream.
