Cambridge City Run 2014

I'm so proud of my Momma! She ran her first 5 mile race (not 5K)-- a bona fide 5 miler! She did it without stopping once (57:32). Of course, Papa and I were at the starting line and the finish line to support her. Congratulations Momma!

Surgical residents need therapy too

I ran into a group of surgical residents at the library. One beautiful resident spent her down-time with me.

I've been recognized at the airport! We were in the baggage claim when I thought I heard the couple standing behind Mama talking about me. All of sudden, the guy asked Mama, "Is your dog's name Cooper? The dog that works at The Countway Library?" Yup, guy. That would be me.

I made it to NYC

Went to celebrate Mama's birthday in New York. I even got to go down to the subway-- until the mean attendant threw me out!! Doesn't he know who I am?


Later, we all went to Central Park for what I thought was gonna be a nice walk-- but woa, Mama and Papa had me walk 70 blocks with them! Uhm, Guys, I have little legs, remember?


Oh thank God. A picture break.


I'm pooped! At least when we get back to the hotel, there'll be a nice cold bowl of water from the in-house dog and some yummy treats from the nice doorman.

Yummy Food Trucks!

Got to go to SoWa Market with Mama and Papa. There were all kinds of artisans there and LOTS of Food Trucks! The smells were amazing. So...while Mama and Papa shopped, I got in line.






Yup. That's right. They found me staking out The Bacon Truck! Where else would this little pup go?

I'm helping recruit Radiologists

I met this pretty resident in Radiology today at the library. She was explaining to my Mama that a few other residents often come by and visit me. They love me, if I do say so myself. Anyway, she explained that The Brigham & Women's Hospital Radiology Dept shows a slide of me during their recruitment of new Radiology fellows! Apparently, they brag that they have their very own therapy dog who's super cute and is great to visit during a stressful day. I'm so pleased that I can be of some help to these young Docs!

Mama's work

Stopped by my Mama's work on the way to my work today. This place is awesome. So many things to play with. Oh, but she did say to stay away from the dissection area (it wouldn't be good for me).

We're on lockdown!




The police are chasing the Boston Marathon bombers! Mama and Papa got emergency texts from Harvard through the night. First, MIT had shootings reported. Now one suspect is in Watertown (two miles from our home). There was gunfire exchanged and more bombs found.

Anyway, how does this affect me? Well, we're instructed by the police and FBI not to leave our homes... That means no going to The Potty for Coopie!! Yikes.

Happy Birthday to Cooper!

April 17. It's my birthday! I got a cake and steak from Mama and Papa. Good day. Thanks guys.




April 18. I had an even bigger cake at work too! I enjoyed bringing smiles to my colleagues as they all came to share my cake. Pics to follow soon...

I'm on TV again!

Channel One News aired a feature about me today nationally! Apparently, I'm lighting up the Twitter-universe with comments from teens about my cuteness!! Check out my video here:

I also provide people many health benefits, a few of which are listed below:

My new profession!

I've been asked to review The ToughHound All Sports dog collar. It can be found at the Dog Bark Collar store.


This collar is quite stylish. I chose an espresso brown to match my coat. It features a nameplate that is integrated with the collar, so it lies flat and flush against your neck. I like this feature 'cuz normally my tags jingle quite a bit and everyone can hear all of my movements-/ not so good if you wanna sneak up on your family. Another nice feature is that the nameplate could never fall off, so I wouldn't have to worry about my contact information being lost. Speaking of which, the laser-engraved etching allows you to personalize the collar with 4 lines of text in various fonts (to protect my privacy, my information has been blurred in the above photograph).

The collar is made from highly-durable polycoated webbing which will likely last a long time-- especially if you're a pup like me who likes to chew on it whenever it comes off! The ToughHound’s collar is non-porous, dries rapidly, and doesn't absorb typical doggy odors.



My only problem with this collar is that the buckle is a bit too heavy and large for a masculine, yet petit dog, like myself. I would have also preferred it if they made a ToughHound harness, since my Mama insists that my neck is fragile and prefers not to pull on it for my safety. That being said, if you're a "hefty" and meaty kinda dog, than ToughHound All Sports is for you!

"Cooper is overdue."

Did someone forget to return me?


Yesterday, after his day in the clinic, I overheard Papa tell Mama that he had a medical student with him that knew me. He didn't know Dr Anderson was my Papa, and proceeded to tell Papa his Cooper story:
"We have a dog at the medical school. It's really cool. We can check him out. I checked him out the other day and later, when I got home, I got an email saying 'Please return Cooper. Cooper is overdue.' I even had to call the library and tell them I already returned him. It wasn't me. I didn't lose him!"

Those silly medical students!

Turns out, sometimes the librarian forgets to scan me back into the system-- then I'm marked as 'overdue.'

Anyway, what a small world! Papa went on to tell him that he was my (proud) Papa.

I'm gonna be on TV again!




I had an interview with Channel One News. This lovely lady named Maggie Rulli from CBS came up from NYC to film me for a piece. She found me at work and caught me on camera with a few visiting students. If this Therapy Dog gig doesn't work out, I think I might head for Hollywood!

Whoa snow!

That's a lot of snow! I couldn't get out to use the potty on Saturday 'cuz of all that snow. I guess I'll have to help Mama and Papa dig out the driveway!

Go Patriots!

Game day. Go Patriots!!!



Mama got a jersey to look more like me! Hers has Brady's number though. Doesn't she know I'm better looking than him?

Woe is me!

My Mama forgot to feed me!!



Oh my God, I thought I was gonna pass out. Someone tell my Mama not to forget my dinner again! I had no energy all night. I tried to tell Mama that I was hungry-- I sat-pretty, tapped her arm and said 'Hey hey hey.' Nothing worked. She simply thought I was begging for her dinner. Well, I was. Duh Mama. I was starving.

This morning, when we were getting ready for our morning walk, I sat where my food bowl was supposed to be and looked up at Mama. Yup, that got her attention. She checked the microwave, and lo and behold...my dinner from last night was found! She must've felt guilty 'cuz I got a huge plate of fresh Blue Buffalo Turkey, rice and veggies for breakfast.

Happy New Year!




Happy New Year to my friends and family! I got lots of new toys to play with for 2013! I hope everyone begins the new year wagging their tail each and everyday. Stay healthy and happy!

Love,
Coop

It snowed!

Yippee!! It snowed! For those of you who don't know, I love the snow. I love the feel of the soft fluffiness sinking under my feet and the taste of fresh snow in my mouth. Plus, our house is so pretty when it snows. I love it!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!




It's Thanksgiving break at Harvard Medical School-- so I get another vacay. Hooray!

We just made it to Ithaca, NY. It's very bucolic and picturesque here. Lots of places to sniff and to go potty on!

Most of all, I'm with my family. I love it!
Happy Thanksgiving!
Go Pats!

Harvard Union protest




I was a part of the Harvard Union protest yesterday for a fair salary and affordable healthcare. (yes, we pups need health coverage too!) I stood out on the quad with 300 others-- and they even gave me a button. It says, "Harvard works because we do."

They're baaaack!




So the school year has begun and the students are back. I've been a busy guy. A week ago I helped the new students get oriented to the library and today another group of 15 came to see me all at once. I thought I'd take a breather in the late afternoon and sneak a nap, but a nice lady on crutches came to spend time with me. So rather than sleep, I turned on the Coopie-charm. She stayed an hour and a half. I heard the evening librarian telling my Mama this. She was so proud that I did my job and brought a smile to yet another person.

Now I'm exhausted and am looking forward to a good pillow and a little R&R.

I made it to NPR!

Roll out the red carpet It's official. I'm famous.


Last week, I was the topic of an Associated Press article. This week, I was featured as an answer on the NPR show, "Wait wait. Don't tell me."
I think Jeopardy might be calling soon!

Happy Valentine's Day!







Check out this meal Papa and I made for Mama. We made a seafood chioppino, Milky way martinis, pinot grigio and lemon bars for dessert (I had turkey jerky). The candles were my idea, but since I couldn't reach, Papa had to light them.

Anyway, all my love to the ladies this Valentine's Day!

Countway Staff

This is the montage of The Countway Library staff.


If there is any confusion, I'm in the center of the first column. (Can someone tell my agent that all photos must be taken from the front from now on?)

Anyway, my Mama was surprised to see that I cooperated for a profile shot. "I'm not stupid Mama. They said , 'Cooper, let's take it from the Right,' and I said, 'ok, how's this?'"
