Fiber Friday: Remembering Cooper

It is truly a gift to have a talent i can share with friends and family when they are hurting, and a sorrowful time when i’m called upon to use it. Pocket doesn’t have many Corgi friends and her first was Cooper. Cooper was  a large tri-color ‘belonging’ to one of my oldest friends. He inspired me to get a Corgi and my friend spent long hours coaching me via email on all things Corgi in anticipation of her puppy training. When they finally met, it was love at first sight. Unlike playing with other, large dogs Cooper put zero pressure on her to play past her inclination. They would chase each other as fast as they could, in large circles full of joy. As soon as one would plop down for a rest, the other would pause and join in. They practically snuggled: so cute.

This Thanksgiving the world and the Dee/Greens lost their first (fur) child, shortly after the arrival of their new (human) baby girl. I cannot imagine the sorrow they are feeling. And i could not help myself from felting a little Cooper for them to have as a remembrance of our dear Corgi friend.

Frap on over the Rainbow Bridge, Cooper! Don’t forget to give your little sister a lick every now and again from the other side. We miss you!

  1. I was very sad to hear about Cooper, what a lovely twosome they made, your photos of memories are just paramount I imagine for you and your family now. I know what it is like to lose human and fur babies best friends as well. But something about this story touched my heart and I knew that I would have to leave a comment to send my sincere condolences to both families in your time of loss. It never ceases to amaze me how as humans sometimes our closest friends are our fur babies. May Cooper always play a part of your memories of great times and I hope that your fur girl baby recovers from her grief so obvious on her face and the hole left behind mends. Deepest and sincere best wishes, from Liza, down under in Australia

    Our fur babies capture a piece of our hearts when we get them and take it when they go. With time and remembering their antics that entertained us so, the hole begins to slowly close. And some day another fur baby enters and captures our hearts and brings much laughter and job.
