Juicy Turkey Guaranteed

Okay, so I have a secret to share and it has to do with The Juiciest Best Turkey ever.

Unbeknownst to my Mama and Papa, I was watching and learning how to Grill a turkey for our Christmas Eve feast. They learned the recipe from a nice Irishman named John Sullivan from Harvard. His family only makes their turkey this way and he swears by its yummy goodness. (are Harvard people good at cooking too?!)

So don't tell them I told you, but here's the secret to getting your turkey meat to fall off the bone and wow your guests and your pups...

Brine your turkey with H2O and sea salt (enough to make a raw egg float) plus any additional seasoning you desire. Keep the entire bird submerged for 6-24hrs.

After brining, I saw Mama and Papa rub butter, salt and pepper all over the turkey. Then they put it in a tray and onto the grill at the lowest heat. They then barbecued the bird for 12 min/pound.

After putting the turkey on the grill, I heard Papa tell grandma that he was "taking care of the BBQ every 5 minutes." In fact, he and I were watching football the entire afternoon! This turkey came out like pulled-pork, the guests were raving about it and praising Papa. Best of all...we boys barely did any work!!

By the way, I'm only sharing this recipe with the hope that a few kind souls will make it again and share a few morsels with the pup that spilled the beans!

Thanks for a good stay bro

This is my brother Jack from California. Doesn't he look like a total surfer dude? I guess he got the Hollywood looks and I got the Harvard brains. Nonetheless, we're brothers and buddies.

Thanks for the great Vacay bro!

I'm not a miracle worker!

Run for your life!

This is the face of the few that I just can't help.  Unfortunately, she's also my Auntie Vie.

I mean, I'm good...but you just can't help them all.   Sometimes you just have to admit defeat.

Oh well!  Show her some love everybody.

My TV Debut!

I was on TV last night!  Can you believe it?  I thought I looked pretty good, if I do say so myself!  I sure hope this informs the community of the benefits of therapy dogs and the good deeds of my workplace, The Countway Library.

On a lighter note, anyone want to be my agent?  I'm thinking that I want to be one of those Hollywood dogs too!

Here is the link to the TV segment:

Happy Halloween!

I went to work as Cooper-bumble bee (killer bee). Top that!

Ok Hollywood producers, don't you see how versatile of a leading man I am?

CNN... what are you waiting for?

 This is so exciting!  I'm gonna be on TV!  Channel 5 called the Harvard Communications office and setup this interview with me for the Boston local news show, "Chronicle."  I had a camera crew in my face and lots of paparazzi (ie students) in the distance.

 Perhaps I really do need a manager? I think I can get used to all this fame! 

Watch out Anderson Cooper.  Cooper Anderson wants your job!

CNN... here I come!

Cooper gone wild!

I met a ton of new students yesterday.  They seemed to really enjoy my company.  I was a pretty busy guy.  But I have to admit, a little pup has to blow off some steam sometimes too!

I made a new friend during my break on the quad.  Let's hope he doesn't try to eat me.

My First Professional Photoshoot

"Look Innocent."

"Look away in the distance.  Give me something pensive Cooper."
My "come-hither" look.

Yoga goes to the dogs

I need to work on my Downward-facing Dog and my Tree. But overall, I'm a natural at this yoga stuff!

My own Fantasy Football Team!

The Crimson Coopers!

I'm so flattered.  One of my new buddies named their football team after little old me!

Now I have to cheer for Aaron Rodgers (and Tom Brady, of course)!

I need an agent.

That's me in the Harvard Gazette (and Mama too)!  I got a little bit busted for dragging her into my business, but she never stays mad at me too long!

Seriously though, I think I need an agent.

I think I'm getting famous!!

This is the current publication of The  Division of Medical Sciences Bulletin from Harvard Medical School.  As you can see, that's me on the cover!

Check it out for yourself:

Ok Matt Lauer, when are you gonna call?  Maybe I might need to find time in the day to hire a publicist....

Hurricane Irene got me!

What the heck was that!? I had to use the potty and then that hurricane thing blew me away!

I earned a pillow!

Today was my workday. I came home pretty tired. Papa said, "Ok Coop, go ahead. On Thursdays, you can have a pillow too."

08/23/11 Back to work

Phheeew! I'm tired. At first I couldn't control my excitement when I saw all of my colleagues at the library. I happily ran around nonstop like a mad man! But of course, I then had to reel it in and focus on work. The new school year just started, so my first day back from vacay was a tough one: I saw 15 students in one session! --a record for me. I really hope this year's class won't request regular group-therapy sessions!

Cape Cod Sunsets

Sunsets over Cape Cod Bay are gorgeous!

Guys, I'm stuck

So I had this great idea to climb in Papa's beach chair....but then the tide came up!

Surfing Cooper

Today I caught some waves! Then I played with my vacation-girlfriend Piper! Good times!!

Aaaaahh...this is the life

Now this is more like it!

Yesterday, Mama got me up at 5:30am just to make it back to the medical school for work. 5:30! Can you believe it? I was groggy during the ride to Boston, but I couldn't stop my tail from waggin when I saw the library.

But I gotta say, gettin back to Cape Cod just in time for sunset on the water today was awesome.

08-14-11 Vacay is awesome!

We had cake!! My Papa is one of U.S. News & World Report's Best Doctors 2011! Yaaaaaaay Papa!

After cake, things got even better...I got to run in the water and chase birds during low tide!

08-14-11 Dog Bar, here I come!

I made it! My favorite vacation spot ever! I get so excited at The Cape. Mama and Papa got a new rental on our usual beach and I love it! I have a great view of the ocean from our deck and we are steps away from the water. Tomorrow, I'm promised my trip to the Dog Bar. Hooray!!

Friday, August 12, 2011

Dog Bar!

I need a dog bar! Mama and Papa said they saw one at the Cape. You see, I met this mean lady at my work yesterday who kept saying "get the dog away from me. Keep the dog away from me."
Ouch! Emily said she regularly throws attitude around the library. But uhm, hello! I'm pretty cute.

Anyway, who knew that humans could be so prejudiced! I mean, "if thou pricks me, do I not bleed?"

Sure hope the Dog Bar is pure Vodka!

08-08-11 Happy Anniversary Mama & Papa!

Today's Mama and Papa's anniversary. I know; I was their ring-bearer.

Congratulations and lotsa love from Coopie!

I took a Vacation-Day! 7/28/11

Look at my lovely view from Aunt Mary's vacation rental!

I called in "sick" today.  Technically, I took a "personal" day.   My Anderson family are at The Cape, so Mama, Papa and I took a day-trip down to visit them.

I had so much fun running on the beach during low-tide!  Who knew that relaxing could be so tiring though!?

Relaxing is sooo tiring!

$100 Bribe !

This might compromise my journalistic integrity.

I got bribed!  I made my first $100 today!  Grandpa gave it to me so that I only put "approved" postings of him in my blog. Can you believe it?

Dear Cousin Casey, Cousin Dexter and Cousin Yoji:  Blogging can be lucrative!
Do I have to give it back Mama?

Friday, July 22, 2011


Who's Danny DeVito?
I never saw the movie "Twins," but Papa said he and Grandpa look just like the guys from that movie!

I made it to Maine! That's me; that's the Bush Estate in the distance.    Hmmmmm....I'd really like to take a poops there.
