With apologies to Kim Manners... (part 4/4)

okay

where i am: still with the 2 terriers
how i am: okay
accompanied by: Bon Jovi, Shot Thru the Heart


Okay, so maybe this only impresses me. Still, I think it's pretty nifty. Look! They both even go on point!



Being ginormous, they can't help but dwarf the pretty little ladies they hang with:




Cooper and Flurry…………..................................……..….and Dyna


And his best girl, Tumble

They both have expressive, some might even say exotic, hazel eyes:



And lastly, as hinted at by these gorgeous head-shots above, both Jared and Cooper have matured and bulked up into damn fine and striking examples of their respective species. Dontcha think?


So there you have it… the last of my pack to introduce to you. Though I didn't go into much detail about his life with us, trust these pictures to tell the story of Cooper's character. He truly is a spaz and a doofus. And as playful and intelligent a people and dog loving ginodork as we could have hoped for.

I hope you've enjoyed meeting my gang over these last 10 months. You can see how they take so much of my time away from fandom and writing. It was fun being able to somewhat combine the two with this entry. I hope you thought so too ;).

Notes/Thanks:
To the Jensen-Dean and JDM-John girls reading this, I feel badly that I don't have similar pic-spams planned for these guys after putting so much effort into this one for Jared. I can only hope that my usually Dean-John focused fic makes up for that failing. In truth, none of my dogs remind me of them though. Pdragon76 and I chatted once about Dean reminding her of a Kelpie and I'd said that Jensen reminded me more of a Kelpie whereas Dean reminded me of a Heeler. Not my Heeler, Cody, though. As much as I loved Cody, neither his floppy ears nor his un-typically submissive attitude fit Dean. So, I'll have to defer to Kim's Rin Tin Tin comparison for Jensen. I certainly can't argue it. Wouldn't want to. Who knows, maybe someday I'll write at length about how much hubby reminds me of Dean though (as gatorpez rolls her eyes *g*). Seriously, I've never seen a character in movies or on TV that reminds more of him, so much so that hubby even sees it now (with a mixture of pride and embarrassment). Yeah, I am that lucky and that cursed. More on that subject another day. Maybe ;).

Thanks to moondropz and tahirire for pointing me in the direction of pictures both used and unused in this spam. And, moondropz? Hon, I now have an even clearer and greater concept of how much work, effort, and time your picspams for us require. Take a bow, lady! Bravo!

ROFLOL! But you've locked part 1 somehow, because it won't let me look. *sulks*

I love, love your comparisons here. Very, very funny--and very pretty puppies, in both cases.

LOL, I'm glad you got a kick out of this. So did I, aside from the difficulty I had posting it. Had no idea I locked part 1. Doh! ::facepalm and headdesk combined::

I've fixed that now, so here's the link again:

Cool, thanks for unlocking it. And guh, they both are very excellent examples of their species. Gender. Whatever. ;-)

LOL. Srsly, if I had a Jensen-dog, Dean-dog or Jeff-dog in my house, I'd be milking that for all it's worth *g* Lord knows gatorpez must be sick of me comparing the hubby to Dean. Hubby sure is, anyway :).

Don't think I'd want a canine equivalent of John though. I may be very much a John-girl but paranoid, obsessed and violent is not exactly my #1 choice for a dog. Mind you, I do have Russells... never miiiiind ;)

This turned out great. Lol, JARED. Hee.

I'm so glad you got a kick out of this. I sure did. I had more pictures/comparisons but had to cull... this was big enough as it is.

Like an idjit I managed to inadvertently lock out part 1. Fixed it obviously. Something had to go wrong ;)

Well, i go from new posts to old ones so i saw this one first - it's not fair not to do the same to Jensen so i'm waiting for satisfaction :) Fucs, please. I know i still have your last to read but the more the better i suppose :)

Trust me... if I had a dog that reminded me of Jensen, I'd be showcasing him for sure. Alas, no such luck.

I am hoping and praying my muse comes to life though... I want to write more SPN fic - I truly do!

Friends

both Jared and Cooper have matured and bulked up into damn fine and striking examples of their respective species. Dontcha think?

Oh, I do think, indeed! Hee! Cooper is a fine match for Jared, and I'm sure he would approve, himself. *nods* :-p

Also, your Jared-Pluto comparisons are totally of the win! \o/ HEE!

Jared would totally fall in love with Cooper - I'm sure of it :D

Glad you enjoyed! I had a blast sifting through photos to find the best examples of their likenesses ;)

Thanks for some wonderful insights into your thoughts on Jared. I have to tell you, you have made some odd assumptions and some jumps in logic. Cosmic jumps in logic. But that being said, I like it. I would have never thought of Jared as a German Shorthaired Pointer. Maybe a Lab. A well muscled big ol' Lab who jumps in before thinking. And a comical side that won't quit. But I don't know GSPs very well and your Cooper certainly seems to fit Jared pretty well. Except, I don't think that Jared's hair color could be called liver and white.

I have much love for these pix. Especially Jared pointing. You are a very funny fangirl!

Jared Eye Candy

Ah, see, I'd never compare Jared with a GSP though... they're structured differently than the GWPs and even more so with Drahthaars, which is what Cooper technically is. The GWPs of North America come from Drahthaars which have a somewhat different breed standard. Drahts have different breeds in their makeup from GSPs (namely Pudelpointers and Stickelhaars), are bulkier and have different chests, plus the GSP's coat is too sleek. I think of Jared as scruffier, more rugged and substantial, part of why Cooper fit to my mind ;). Coop's coat color is called braunschimmel (brown w/ ticking), almost black, which I thought worked really well too. Drahthaars do come lighter (more like a typical liver GSP) but they also come in black (schwarzschimmel) which you don't find in GSPs or GWPs (except as an anomaly and is considered a serious fault).

I *definitely* can see Jared's personality fitting a Lab (very similar to Coop's although I'd argue that Drahts are better problem solvers) but, to my mind, not his physique. Labs aren't supposed to appear tall or leggy which just doesn't work for me where Jared's concerned ;). Coop's about 27 inches tall, so a good 3+ inches taller than the typical Lab male and he definitely has the tall and leggy look. You know what they say, though... YMMV :)

I know, more info than you bargained for (LOL)!

Glad you still got a kick out of this :D

God, I feel so, so stupid. GWP not GSP. I actually thought that might be the case but for some reason I changed my mind, (I blame it on the "good" drugs I am on due to a injured back)

*gives back my doggy charter membership and hangs head in shame*

Terriers - Cho

LOL, no worries. Our past 6+ years with NAVHDA have had us spending lots of time with GSPs (and Viszlas, GWPs, Weims, Pudelpointers, other Drahts) and it really is quite remarkable how different the GSPs are from the GWPs though - temperament and look. Mind you, given their history, it shouldn't be surprising because their makeup is so different. I find the GWPs and Drahts much more like Pudelpointers though where as the GSPs remind more of Viszlas... with subtle differences of course.

Sorry to hear about your back. I hope it's better soon. I had trouble twice last year... a herniated disk in my lower back and, before then, a dislocated collarbone that put everything out of whack. No fun! Get better soon :)

Ackles glee!

Oh this was awesome! Hello Cooper! And hee, Jared will never be thought of as anything other than a puppy-a hot puppy but yeah. ;P This was an awesome introduction to your Cooper! Loved all of it! Spamming can be time consuming *G*. I always say I'll just do a small spam *Coughs 50 pics *Coughs* and it takes a little longer than I initially planned! Ha! But after doing so many I've gotten it all down to the point where it doesn't take me long-and even less time coding one. ;P
*Hugs*

Kirby & Briar - horizontal

Oh, wow! We just went through all four parts. So, this probably took you more than a few minutes to put together.:) We had a blast with the comparisons, and loved the pics of your dogs. Didn't mind the JP pics either.:)

And just because, we used a cat icon.:D

LOL, I'm so glad you both enjoyed this. It was really fun to put together but frustrating as can be to upload ::sigh:: I was so glad when part 4 was indeed the last part!

{{grins}} re the cat icon. I just won't show Coop... he might fly through the monitor screen!

And let me say again how much I loved this last Lancer installment you posted. It just works sooo very well with canon and yet isn't and I love how you've managed to create such a wonderfully believable world.

I truly am looking forward to the next part :)

Yes, let's avoid the dog/cat thing.:)

And regarding the Lancer fic: Thanks! The fourth part is being betaed.
