We purchased Ira last August. He was very shy at first but warmed up quickly on the way home to Baltimore. We changed his name to Cooper (after our favorite character Dr. Sheldon Cooper), and we often joke that Copper got his PhD in cuteness. Cooper has thrived in his new home. He is very smart. He learned quickly to go potty outside and to let us know when he has to go. He knows his toys by name and will bring you the toy you ask for. He loves to play and go for walks. He has brought a lot of fun and laughter to our home, and we couldn’t imagine our home without him.
