Cooper is HSMC Pet of the Week.

“My life goes on in endless song
above earth’s lamentations,
I hear the real, though far-off hymn
that hails a new creation.
Through all the tumult and the strife
I hear it’s music ringing,
It sounds an echo in my soul.
How can I keep from singing?”

Copper has a voice like a bell and sings for joy. He is a joyous dog, so singing is what he is all about. Smart as only coonhounds are, he pays attention and learns what you have to teach. Right now, he is learning about sitting and love, and the fun of learning is worth singing about. Won’t you sing with him?
