It has been forever since we have blogged about Cooper's Dog...Were does the time go? We are not sure if anyone follows this blog anymore, but just in case we want everyone to know that Cooper will not be getting Kona. Through blood work, Angel Service Dogs discovered that Kona has 10% Pit Bull in him. While Pit Bulls can be wonderful dogs they can not be certified Service Dogs, and insurance companies will not insure them. Kona is still doing what he loves, but has become a drug sniffing dog rather then a food allergy alert dog.
About a month ago we found out that Cooper will be getting and Australian Labradoodle named Chip. We are so excited and can't wait to bring him home! Love you Chip!

Thank you to the Henry Bull Foundation who donated the last $2,500 for Cooper's Dog. We are so thankful for you, and for everyone who helped us reach our goal. We never expected that in 5 short months we would be were we are today. Because of YOU Cooper will live a safer life, and have more freedom. He will have the opportunity to go to school, and have a guardian angel by his side when we can not.

As his mother I can not tell you how over joyed and overwhelmed my heart is. I am still in disbelief. I am so incredibly thankful. During this journey, I learned a very important thing..To always, always, always help those in need no matter how big or small. From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU for your help, love, support and advice!! We will be traveling to Colorado in June or July for a mandatory two week training session with Kona (the dog) and the trainers. Please continue to visit our blog so we can share this event with you!

A special thanks to a wonderful girl named Jordyn who dedicated her entire birthday party to Cooper, to help raise money for his dog. What makes Jordyn so remarkable is that she chose to help Cooper after being touched by his story, and she never even knew him. She came up with the idea of a party dedicated to Cooper, in which she sent out birthday invitations to all of her friends, requesting that they not bring a birthday gift, but rather use the money as a donation towards Coopers Dog. We have been amazed throughout the process of raising funds for Cooper’s Dog, but few things have touched our hearts like the generosity of Jordyn, her family and friends. There is not a lot that we can say except, thank you for being as special as you are, and for caring about our son. We can’t wait until you meet his dog one day!
