Wow Cooper is in great shape.
There's no way my 12 year old could play like that!

I'd say Cooper has a dance in his step still and did wonderfully playing with your pup. Presumably, your vet has told your folks to check his gum color daily, and they should call the vet if his gums are grey or very pale. Wishing lovely Cooper much more time with his family....and time to teach that youngster a thing or two

Thanks everyone. Yeah - Cooper is what the vet would call "over-conditioned" - he is in phenomenal shape for a dog his age (minus the cancer of course). He goes on a run on weekdays - basically running with a pack of dogs through the woods. He may be a little slower than he once was, but he looks forward to the dog walker picking him up and jumps right in the car.

My parents are aware of what to look for in the gums - both via my direction and the vet's.

We left my parents yesterday. Shadow is moping around today - I think he misses Cooper. It was really hard to leave him because now I never know if the last time I see him really will be the last time I see him.

Sorry to hear about Cooper's diagnosis. It obviously isn't stopping him from having fun! May he have many more good times with Shadow!

I hear ya! We are in the situation of not knowing if our girl will be here or need our immediate attention when ever we leave the house or even when we sleep. It is an intense feeling. Maybe it is life's way of reminding us that they won't be here forever as they are only borrowed so we need to enjoy the times that we do have together.
After seeing that video it looks as though you and Cooper have plenty of more good times to come though.
