We had the pure joy of raising Copper from a puppy. He was much like other “best dogs in the world” and brought such a warmth, love, and sunshine into our lives. Copper was protective when he needed to be, and we always felt so safe with him. Copper loved my husband and my husband loved Copper in such a unique way. Copper was our family dog, but the two of them had a special bond. They hiked Colorado fourteeners together, and Copper loved every minute of his adventures. Our precious boy was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in early January 2013 and our hearts literally broke with the news. It was as if over night he physically changed. . . but nothing changed his bright eyes and his spirit. We knew that he would never stop loving us and wanted to show us his love any way he could. I started making his food because his appetite quickly diminished. I baked chicken in the crock pot over night and blend it with brown rice, which he LOVED. I learned so much about nurturing through Copper. I have 3 grown children and we have been married for 24 years, and I thought I knew all there was to know about nurturing. I was wrong . . . Copper taught me so much in the past 3 weeks about living in the moment, and providing minute by minute love. His diagnosis brought with it a great deal of pain. His tumor grew rapidly and he was so bothered by it. We made the decision to let him go and be pain free forever. We know Copper will be climbing mountains with us this summer in spirit. He was and will always be such a gift. God bless you Copper Bottom Jeans.
