I have a new nephew, Cooper, the Cavalier King Charles spaniel. He joined the family about two months ago, and is a joy to everyone. His parents and siblings went on vacation, so Cooper came to stay with me for a week or so, and we had a grand time. Puppies are a lot of work, in case you didn't know! But they are also very sweet and cuddly, and love to play. Here's some of Cooper's activities from last week.
