Lansdale Family's Cooter
Cooter Blacky Couch Potato Lansdale is nine years old and will be ten on November 18, 2000.
Cooter works better than the Weather Channel—when he runs and hides under the stairs, you know there's gonna be a storm.
That's because when he was a puppy, he almost got shocked by lightning.
But that's the only thing he's afraid of, and only because he can't sink his teeth into it!
He is a family dog and gets along great with all the family's animals, even the gerbils.
Cooter is pure bred, black German shepherd—the Lansdales got him from a breeder outside Nacogdoches.
