Cooper farts

Whenever my first dog Sari farted, she'd be terrified and start looking for a place to hide. Mostly because whenever she farted my mom would spray cologne or something to cover up the smell and Sari hated the way the cologne smelled. Sometimes if you farted she would look at you and then at the cologne bottle and back to you and back to the bottle. Silly dog. She also showed shame; like she was embarassed to have passed gas.
Cooper on the other hand, is completely shameless. Sometimes when he farts he stares at his butthole like, "Hm, that's where it came from? Weird..." Other times he groans and lays on his side. Most of the time his butt is facing me and I always get a terrible whiff of it. He is completely unapologetic and if I scold him to get away from me, he gives me a look out of the corner of his eye like he's saying, "Hey, I don't make a big deal when you fart so you hush up."
A couple times he farted and it actually made a tooting sound. The first time that happened he jumped a mile and stared at his butt in wonder like, "WOW!" Then he did that cute little head cock thing and it almost looked like he was laughing.

Cooper's super...sometimes

I've been feeling down lately thanks to my asshole family. Last night I had one of the worst phone conversations with my dad and he made me cry for hours. Normally when I cry, Cooper gives me this weird look out of the corner of his eyes and slinks off into his house and leaves me alone. He's such a boy...
Anyway, last night Cooper stared at me while I was sobbing on the phone with the most tender expression I have ever seen on him considering Cooper has the same blank eyed stare for every moment of the day. I was expecting him to jump off the bed and into his house but he stood up and sat next to me and leaned his head against me. Well, I think he wanted me to pet him but it was comforting all the same with him leaning up against me. And then another surprising thing happened: Cooper licked my face.
Cooper is not a licker. Sometimes he'll tentatively lick your hand if you smeared peanut butter on yourself while scooping out the last remnants out of the jar. He never licked anyone's face unless they had food on it. So it was weird having Cooper lick the tears and then snot off my face while I tried to push him off. I don't know if he did it just so he could lick snot and tears off my face and if that's the case, I never want him to come near my face again. Either way though, it was just nice to know that Cooper cares about me.
