Our 5yr old pit-bull suffered two life changing events within a months time. Firstly, the loss his “buddy”, our 14yr old Cocker Spaniel. Then(a tractor trailer our only guess & probably unaware of anything having happened) rolled him out in front of our house. While he didn't have any life threatening injuries, the muscle and tendon damage had him laid up, and all this put him in a depression, for lack of a better term. All it would have taken was him going on with everyday activities to get better, but he didn’t even want to try. I had not intended to add another puppy to our household so soon, but I thought it might help. A lady just south of us had rescued a pair of lab/border collie mix pups from the streets near her home, and it turned out to be the best thing I could've done. This energetic, enthusiastic pup not only has a wonderfully crazy personality that wins my heart/joy/and laughter everyday, but more importantly he won the fight for our Brody. He wouldn‘t give up on Brody and wouldn‘t let him give up either. “He's back” and we owe it all to "Cooper."
