Puppy Love: October

Puppylove Oct

Kylie Pucci
Mahwah, age 9
Cooper, Yorkshire Terrier, age 2

How we met: “We got Cooper from a breeder when he was 10 weeks old and weighed less than 2 pounds. There were a ton of puppies to choose from, but once my parents and I held him we knew we liked him the best.”

Top dog: “Even though Cooper is tiny, he likes to bark at the big dogs and thinks he’s the mayor of our neighborhood. And when we play tug-of-war, he usually wins!”

Best buds: “Cooper follows me all around when I’m home. He helps me practice soccer by trying to take the ball away from me, and he likes to keep up with me when I ride my bike. I really love him a lot.”
