If y’all remember, Cooper or ‘Coop’ as we call him, is the big German Shepherd stray that hangs out here. He is Brandy and Ozzy’s pa. Coop, Little Momma and Little Girl have been roamin’ the area for a long time now. But, they always come ’round about feedin’ time at night and then snooze in the mancave till mornin’ – till now 🙁
About 10 days ago, Little girl showed up without the other two. She had her vittles and spent the night. Well, the next night her and Little Momma came. This time when Little Mamma came she had shots in her back that looked to be from a shot gun shell 🙁 She wasn’t hurt other than that. My Lady got em outta her and doctored her up.
Still no Coop! Coop has stayed gone for 3 – 4 days before , when he’s been chasin’ a girl friend ’round. But, he would always show up, tired as heck and sleep for a long time. Now it’s been 10 days and he ain’t back yet! We’re fearin’ the worst! Especially since my Lady found the shots in Little Momma’s back. My Lady’s a thinkin’ he’ might a gotten shot. Hunters hunt in the woods around us and maybe they thought he was a deer 🙁 Then there’s them coyottes they always a fightin’ with.
Ain’t much we can do but wait. There’s to much area to go a lookin’ for him. Until then, Little Momma and Little Girl sit and bark towards them woods at night like they’re callin’ him. Even though he’s a stray, we sure are missin’ Mr. Coop!
