Cooper's Kind Heart

by Randy Wright
(Seattle, WA )

Cooper, Jeeves, Maryann (Jeeves owner) and I were walking our Whippets by the children’s play area at Ravenna Park.

As we came down the path, the kids were looking at a male Robin that had dropped out of the tree onto the ground. The kids looked at the bird just lying there, parents told them not to touch it.

Cooper came in among the kids and gently swooped up the bird in his mouth. The kids asked if he was going to eat it, I told them "No, just watch him."

The kids followed after Cooper, as he was searching out just the right spot to bury the Robin and when he found a place on the side of the hill, Cooper dug a hole in the ground with his front paws, lay the bird in it, then gently pushed the dirt over the bird with his nose and covered it with leaves on top.

After that Cooper stood still for a few seconds over the grave, I told the kids Cooper was saying a little prayer. The kids were just wide eye how respectful he took care of burying the bird.

As Cooper dashed back over to the kids they were petting him, each taking their turns and one little girl gave Cooper a big hug and said: "LOVE YOU".

Cooper gave her a quick kiss, and off he ran in his goofy happy style down the path, with the kids all yelling and waving good bye to Cooper.

Maryann insisted that I write this story down. She said that Cooper is no ordinary dog, he is almost human.

Maryann has been a witness to some of Cooper's unexplained kindness and funny tricks. She said this is her story and she is sticking to it.
