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.

Big Boy Haircut

Before and after Levi's first haircut.
















Levi went to the poo-poo, fancy-do groomers today and came home looking like a little old man. How could Mom do that to him? He's only 21 weeks old! Gone is all his fluffy, silky-soft fur that bounced with each step when he ran. Gone is his stocky look that had my humans wondering if he really is a pure breed schnauzer like the breeder promised. He's got a waist line and long legs! Who knew? And ears, eyebrows, and a little tail. Levi was so fascinated by the newly discovered wiggly thing on his butt that he chased it for the first time in his young life. Mom thought Levi was going to turn out to be a muddy shade of medium gray and was shocked when she picked up a puppy that turned out to be mostly charcoal gray with light patches on his chest, face, legs and butt. I guess his big-boy haircut will grow on me. Poor little guy, though, he's been scratching since he came home. I think he's allergic to haircuts.

Looking more and more like a schnauzer...





































Short legs before the haircut, long legs afterwards (see below---photos taken the same day).



Well, I've got to get back to my friends up here at the Rainbow Bridge. I'm taking flyball lessons, can you believe that!? A bunch of us small-fry dogaroons are running the course today while the big dogs coach and cheer. ©

He went ta the Bridge in December but he wasn't much fer ball playin' other than ta torment my Mom by standin' in the doorway so she couldn't run fer the ball...seems like such a long time since he left us....give 'em a paws-up, will ya?

Hi, Cooper and Levi -

Cooper, have fun taking flyball lessons. Maybe you'll see my older sister Bosco. She loved playing ball.

Levi is so handsome with his new haircut. Kaci and I (Hershey) just got haircuts over the weekend. We were pretty fuzzy too. You can see our fuzzy cuts on our last entry. Mama has taken pictures of us with our new haircuts but Papa has to help her download them on the computer.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Hi, Cooper & Levi...

The haircut looks very nice...It makes Levi look sooo much older...

Why is it that when you cut a kids hair they look older??? I never understood that...

Anyway...Levi, you look great...I think they must have put something on your legs that made them grow...

Maybe next time I go to the "Spa"...I'll ask them to do something about my short legs, too...

Abby xxxooo

Wow I can't believe how grown up Levi looks now! He is so handsome.
Does he help your mommy find all the local Starbucks? What is his favorite drink? My mawmie is going to extend her kitchen and redo it and is thinking of redoing it in a coffee/Starbucks theme. Yeppers she is kinda crazy.
Nose pokes,
Willow

Cooper, flyball is one wonderful sport so we know you'll enjoy your lessons. Can't wait to hear more about it! We always love hearing from you.

Hi Levi & Cooper's Mom,

I'm writing a story for The Globe and Mail, Canada's national newspaper, about pet blogs -- specifically, blogs written in the voices of dogs and cats (and rabbits or goldfish or iguanas...). I love your -- pardon me, Cooper's -- blog and I'd love to chat with you for my story. You can contact me at rdube (at) globeandmail.com. Hope to hear from you soon!

OMGosh, I think Cooper is adorable, but I must admit to missing the puppy fur! Course, I felt the same way when Scruffy got cut that first time too.

What a handsome pup!

Love and stuff,
