Last week we went to an animal shelter called Max Fund. When we walked into the Small Dog's room, all of the dogs were barking hysterically. All except this one chihuahua-terrier named Fido. Wanting to learn more about him, we read his description on his cage. Apparently he was found as a stray at King Soopers. He was found a month ago, and he is 11 months old. Thinking he was the right dog for us, we asked to take him on a walk. The animal shelter then gave us a leash and collar and, we were allowed outside with him. We walked him for about 10 minutes. Now we knew we was the perfect dog for us. So we turned in our application for him( the application was already filled out because we were there for another dog named Sadie Mae, but she was already adopted) . But, we learned that someone turned in an application for him earlier that day. We were the second application. I think my heart stopped for a split second. Throughout the next week, I was sure that we weren't going to get him. But I kept praying that we would get the right dog, and if that should be Fido, we would get him. I got an answer to my prayers, because on Thursday, I got home from school with a message telling us we were approved. I literally jumped for joy. On the way over we decided that we didn't like the name Fido. Some of the possibilities were, King, Cuate, Cooper, and Charlie. As you can see by the title of this post, we obviously chose Cooper.
What we know about Cooper so far:
  • He loves to play catch.
  • He was terrified of the doggy door at first, but now has no problem.
  • He is starting to get house trained.
  • His bark can be really deep, or really high.
  • He is fast.
  • He likes to go on walks.
  • He is curious.
  • He is a cuddler
We can't wait to see what the future holds.

I Have Nothing Better to Do

I basically have nothing better to do, or blog about, so I'm going to copy and paste in my writing project.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

    There are some things that you just want to forget in life, and this book is not one of them. This was the fastest selling book, $15 million copies in the first 24 hours! Wow! But that's not all,  this amazing book sold over 44 million copies world wide. Harry Potter 7 has been published in over 93 countries.

In this book, the three best friends come across numerous paths that they have to take, each one taking them into deeper trouble. Voldemort, or You-Know-Who as the wizarding world prefers, is back and ready for the final battle. Harry and friends must see things that will leave them scarred for life. Friendships are tested. Relationships are strained.

New and bizarre characters are introduced. Old characters mysteriously disappear. This book was listed as the “Best book for young adults” by the American Library Association. It was also awarded the 2008 Colorado Blue Spruce Award. Bloomsberry, Scholastic,and Raincoast were all the publishers for this fantastic book.

The trio come within an inch of death more times than they can count, literally. Hogwarts consumed in it’s biggest battle yet. Dementors are practically everywhere you go. But even in these dark times, professor Lupin’s baby boy is born, leaving Harry as the godfather.

I highly recommend you read this book before the movie comes out next week. I give Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 4 and a half stars. If you want to know who survives and who doesn't, read the book. But I will tell you this,  in the end good always conquers evil.

My pumpkins
 This year Halloween was on a Sunday. So I couldn't go trick-or-treating, how sad. Grandpa and Grandma were able to be here for Halloween, so that made this year extra fun!
The monday before halloween, we had our family Halloween dinner.  
Mom decided to have a trick-or-treating activity for the three kids.

Dad carving his pumpkin.

I've gotta admit, his pumpkin looked a lot better than mine.
