My boyfriend, Andy, and I adopted Parker (black and tan coonhound/lab mix) from JR’s Pups n’ Stuff on August 21st, 2015. We have only had him for 2 1/2 weeks and cannot imagine our lives without him! We are very grateful to JR’s for giving us the opportunity to be puppy parents.
Since we adopted Parker, we have changed his name to Copper (like the Fox and the Hound). He sleeps in his crate at night with his stuffed Fox sleeping pal. He has lots of toys and has really started to enjoy playing fetch though he is also content to just chew on his bone or rope toy by himself. He loves to go to the dog park and run free (especially in the bushes where he can chase the birds). He is still a little shy around new people and new doggie friends but he is getting better at socializing. He is enrolled in puppy classes at Petco and is learning to respond to his new name, learning “come”, “lay down” and basic commands.
He had his puppy exam at the vet and is doing very well! He is now up to date on all his required vaccinations and some that are not required. He is a healthy, happy puppy.
At home he relaxes and spreads out on the couch or his dog bed. He enjoys being close to his puppy parents and loves snuggling. He goes on 3-4 walks a day and loves to chase bunnies, squirrels and birds. He is a great puppy with a good mix of puppy energy and relaxed personality. Life wouldn’t be the same without him! He is a part of the family.
