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.

Living With Old People

Well, finally, my moomie let me on the computer! It's been ages---longer than ages in a dog's life. She says Levi---that's me in case everyone has forgotten cute little schnauzer me---is a deprived young dog because me has to live with old people. It isn't fair, she says, that no one younger adopted me before my price was reduced to an old person's budget. It isn't fair, she says, that two weeks ago Moomie had to have her leg sawed apart and a new knee joint glued into place and that me had to stay home with Daady and a paid caregiver, Gary. Me really, really wanted to go to the hospiddle with her. Me could have protected her from the bad nurse who was mean to Moomie. Gary was nice to me but he didn't walk me even one time while she was gone. He didn't even take me out to the back yard to run on my 100 foot clothes line, and he didn't speak the same language as Levi. It took me almost four days to figure out that when he said, "Let's go potty" that he was really saying, "Outside, Levi." Humans who baby sit wheelchair bound daady's and schnauzers should learn our language! Even daady couldn't understand half the things Gary wanted him to do.

The first day when Moomie came home from the hospiddle me tried to take that big bandage off her leg. Well, someone had to inspect the damage and see what smelled so strange underneath. After that Moomie kept that walker thing in front of her at all times and that really hurt me feelings. Me was only trying to help! Then at 8:30 me begged to go out to the back yard on my clothes line like we used to do every night, but she wouldn't take me. So, me pooped on the floor and that made Moomie feel so bad! But me was in no mood to use my fenced dog yard after all me went through with Gary. The next night at 8:30 me begged again, but again she wouldn't take me to the back yard. This time she cried and called my cousin Ted to come over for a play date. Ted's parents took me to the back yard. Oh, Levi was so happy. Moomie says to "hang in there" and that in a few weeks she'll take me to places me has never been before…far, far away from our yard. If she keeps her promise, maybe me will find some of my cyber buddies out there? In the meantime me have to be patient. Sigh. ©

Levi, it's wonderful to hear from you.

Tell your mum she'll soon be able to go places with you. My friend had knee surgery and it wasn't too long till she could go out with her dog - a great big German shepherd!

Levi, we have missed you and your mom and dad! So sorry to hear that your mom had to go to the hospital. Will be praying for her speedy healing so that she'll be able to take you out again. Big hugs to you all!

Hello Levi,

We've been missing you and hoping you and your "old people" were doing OK.

We live with old people too -- especially Mom who can't stand to walk us very far in the summer heat -- so we kind of understand. But it sounds as though you've been through some terribly constraining times.

Our granddad -- who is really old people (a few weeks away from 98) had one of those knee replacements a few years ago -- and it has been a really good thing!!

We hope your mom recovers soon and that you get to go on nice long walks -- and poop outside again.

Wirey love to all, including Angel Cooper who we are sure is watching over.

Jake and Just Harry

Hi Levi
It's so nice to hear from you.
We hope your mommy is on her feet in no time and taking you to all those wonderful places.
We are thinking good thoughts for her.
Love Ruby & Penny

Hi, Levi, Cooper and family -

We have been thinking about all of you. We are sooooooo sorry to read that your Moomie has not been feeling well. Grammy (Kaci's Mama) had knee replacement surgery almost four years ago and Mama and Papa took care of Kaci while she was recovering from surgery.

We understand and empathize with you, Levi. But your Moomie wants to get better so she will be able to enjoy taking you for walks and do the things you did before the surgery. We are sending lots of paw hugs and healing kisses and Mama is sending lots of thoughts that she will have a speedy recovery.

If you or your Moomie need to talk you can always leave a comment on our CBOX on the blog or just visit the blog.

Love -

Hershey, Kaci and Mama

hi Levi, we are sending your mom lots of power of the Bs to heal her knee really fast. our grandpa had that knee surgery too and he got better. he walks with us now when we visit him.

we're sorry that you didn't get to go out on your clothesline. poor pupster. maybe when your mommy takes you to all of the faraway places, you can come to visit us! we love schnauzers. as you know, i, Bailey, am proudly 1/2 schnauzer. that's what makes me special. so we know you are a special pup too.

My Bi-Peds are learning all about patience too!

Look after your Mom :-)

Poor neglected Levi! Don't worry, your moomie will be back to normal soon. Although it probably won't be soon enough for HER! Our dad had his leg sawed in half and a new knee put in. It was about 8 years ago. It hurt for a while, but now you would never know he had it done...except for the "zipper" on his leg!
