Cooper’s our unofficial mascot and inspiration at Here Comes The Guide’s Berkeley office. A consummate perfectionist, he prefers to focus on one task until he feels he’s succeeded; whether it’s playing fetch, chewing the nose off of his favorite stuffed toy “woobie,” or going for a nice long walk or run. Cooper loves being the only male member of Here Comes The Guide, and often greets his coworkers in the morning by dropping a stuffed toy at their feet, as his way of saying, “hi.”
Domestic Status: Single. I’m kind of into the cat I live with, but she’s just not that into me.
Best Advice to Brides: Don’t forget to play with your partner often to de-stress. A nice long game of fetch can work wonders after a long day.
Extracurricular Activities: Did someone say “fetch”? Also enjoy belly rubs, chew toys, and long walks on the leash.
Favorite Wedding Detail: The flowers. They’re my favorite place to pee.
Guilty Pleasure: Flirting with the Here Comes The Guide staff (they’re so cute!), chewing the noses off every stuffed animal in sight.
Celebrity I Would Most Like to Have Lunch With: Cesar Millan, the “Dog Whisperer.” I think he’d really “get” me.
Favorite Way to Wind Down After a Hard Day: Curling up with my mom (Chief Operating Officer Meredith Schwartz) for a belly rub and cuddle time, doing 4-mile runs with Dad.
What People Most Underestimate About Me: I’ve been working at _Here Comes The Guide_ since I was 3 months old. What were YOU doing at that age?
Fictional Character I Most Identify With: Verdell from “As Good As It Gets.” What can I say? People like to fight over me.
Breed: Purebred Boston Terrier
AKC Registered Name: The Count of Monte Cooper. My mom was reading _The Count of Monte Cristo_ when they got me. I’m called Cooper after the Mini Cooper, one of my dad’s favorite cars.
