Jim Larson and his golden retriever Cooper have become quite the celebrities in Prior Lake, Minnesota. They can be seen cruising down the road in a camouflage Russian-made URAL motorcycle complete with sidecar and Doggles! Cooper was rescued from a family who could no longer care for him. He is 9 years old, and absolutely loves riding shotgun. The first few times were a challenge, but Larson took Cooper to the dog park, so he associated this with a positive experience. It didn’t take long. Larson and his buddy visit the dog park, the lake, and the local Sonic drive-in a couple times a week. Cooper gets fries! Larson says they are often asked for photographs. Full story and video from KARE 11 here.
Jim Larson, you are an awesome guy! This is his 6th golden retriever, but he and Cooper share a special bond. He even feeds Cooper popcorn from the local watering hole! Thanks for rescuing Cooper, Jim! Ride On!
