Someone, please tell me that getting Cooper wasn’t a bad decision for Oscar.
Oscar seems to love him. They play so well together for the most part . . til Oscar gets tired of him or Cooper starts biting too hard. That’s understandable. Oscar watches out for Cooper and seems to worry about Cooper if Oscar can’t see him. I put Cooper in the bathroom with his food and close the door so there’s no food fighting. Oscar really seems to get concerned when he can’t see Cooper and then once Cooper is done eating and he starts barking for me to let him out, Oscar gets really upset and keeps bugging me to go get Cooper. So, I feel like Oscar likes him.
But . . I kinda feel like Cooper is being a bully with the toys and ALWAYS wanting to play and playing too rough (with those sharp teeth).
Oscar sometimes looks sad. He’s safe on the ottoman because Cooper can’t get up there. Is he tired or is he sad?
Oscar was hanging out right under Vince’s feet like he expected Vince to protect him from Cooper.
I feel like they’re happy together. I know Oscar has matured quite a bit since Cooper arrived but I have this little feeling that Oscar has a love/hate relationship with Cooper. I wonder if often, when parents have a second child, if it isn’t somewhat this way. The baby grows a little and starts messing up the older child’s toys; the baby cries and mom drops everything and tends to the baby. Is there a bit of jealousy, a bit of feeling like the older child is no longer the only child that matters to the parents? I’m not comparing a human baby/child to a dog but, I’m just hoping getting Cooper wasn’t a bad idea for Oscar. Reassure me please!
