Welcome to The Levi and Cooper Chronicles. I'm the 'Cooper' and my baby brother is the 'Levi.' We're not siblings in the literal sense of the word. He's a miniature schnauzer and I'm a miniature poodle but our differences go far beyond our breed. You see, I'm the famous angel dog who blogs from the Rainbow Bridge. Well, not famous down on earth but up here in doggie heaven all canines get to do whatever we like and I like blogging. We dogaroons up here can also gaze down through the magic water under the bridge and keep tabs on our humans. Isn't that cool! After I discovered the magic water, I decided that little Levi---who got adopted into the family shortly after my departure from earth---could use a guardian angel. When he blogs he types in pink and when I put my two cents worth in I type in blue.

First Trip to the Vets

My little brother is a putts. This morning our Dad dropped a corn flake on the floor and when Levi found it later on he just played with it. Granted, it's the first corn flake he's ever seen but even so you'd think he would have known enough to eat. I can't wait until he finds his first bug.

At the veterinarian's office, Levi was a whooping ten pounds, two ounces. I---an angel dog looking out for my earth brother---was right when I said the breeder lied when she told my folks he'd only be seventeen pounds full grown. The vet said we'll know in a few weeks because you can double whatever he weighs at sixteen weeks and that will be close to his adult weight. And she's sure it will be a bit more than seventeen pounds. Our MOTHEEEER is making a MISTAAAAKE with Levi. Every morning after she takes him outside and he's had a little play time inside, she rocks him to sleep in her computer chair in the kitchen while she surfs the net. That's not going to be easy to do when he's a two ton elephant sitting on her lap.

Levi got the works with his first wellness exam: an up the nose bordetella vaccine to prevent kennel cough, a pyrantel dewormer by mouth, and a starter kit for sentinel flea and worm prevention. He got his claws trimmed, too, and his stool checked for worms. Dad said Levi has flies. You got to laugh at Dad's language disorder. He meant that Levi has fleas but the vet tech couldn't find any signs of the varmints. The vet says Levi was the best puppy she's seen in a long time. I'll bet she says that to all new adopting parents.

I've got a play date at Rainbow Meadow with my new friends Nora, Nikka, Sam, Daisy, Mittens, and Pockets so I'm signing out from doggie heaven for now. My social calendar is filling up fast. ©

We like that Cooper is watching from the Rainbow Bridge. Our human has had dogs before us that are watching out for us. That way they live forever.

Cooper! I miss you man! But I'm so glad you are able to watch out for your little brother. Looks like he was put into some good hands. He got lucky on that one. I'm sure you had a little something to do with that!

A corn flake huh? I haven't had one of those either, I bet they sure are fun to pounce on though!

Have a good week! Play hard my friend!

Hi Cooper,

I like to sit on Mum or Dad's knee and Mum will agree that having a 2 ton elephant lounging on your knee (hey.. wait a minute s Mum calling ME an elephant!!??) leads to very numb legs!!
When Levi is full grown she will regret encoraging that behavious hehehe

If you happen to bump into my bridge brother Ben could you give him a big cuddle and smoooch from Mum please, she misses being able to do that so much.

lots of love,

Ben xxxx

Hello Cooper and Levi
Cooper: Tell Angel Lacylulu hello for me. She has her own star in the sky right above my home...I look at it everynight.
Levi I swear has a bird on his nose. I swear he does

Good thing Cooper is watching out for you Levi. You need guidance. Things drop on the floor from human bowls.. EAT THEM.

hi Cooper, you sure are a good brother to watch out for little Levi. we're glad to hear that you have a bunch of friends at the Rainbow Bridge and in the post below you even mentioned Bijou! mom misses her.

we think it's a good idea to talk about how we all got our names and we will do that soon. since we are all B's, you know there has to be a story behind that.

little Levi sounds like he's gonna be a big Levi. sometimes that happens. big is not bad though. we are big and we can still sit on mom's lap - sometimes, when she lets us squish her. hee hee
