Copper is a wonderful dog -- 90% of the time. We have loved having him -- but since I got pregnant with Jace, he changed a bit. He likes to pee on plastic (garbage cans mostly, but also laundry baskets and toys .. ) and he LOVES to run away. The character trait that threw me over the edge though, was eating our food. We couldn't leave it anywhere he could reach it, (and yes, that means on top of the counter as well!) Jace had to be sitting at the table to eat anything, otherwise he'd sneak up and snatch it for him! I can't tell you how many organic peanut butter and honey sandwiches that dumb dog ate!
I don't know if he was any worse when I stayed home all day, but I certainly noticed it more. Because of all of the headaches he brought to our lives -- we decided to get rid of him (yes, this all took place back in June or something!). It makes me sad, because he had so many wonderful things that we just loved! I loved cuddling with him under the blanket. I loved playing tricks with him, and I really liked riling him up so he'd jump down an entire flight of stairs!We found an awesome home for Copper. We haven't heard anything from them, so I'm assuming all is well. We miss him in our home, but have really enjoyed being a one dog family. Good-bye buddy!
