I remember when this happened. It was really sad & it’s nice that they’ll have a lasting memorial for him.
We’ve had some folks ask, “why are you naming the dog park ‘Cooper Memorial’?” Well, it’s a bit of a sad story, so get the hankies ready.
Cooper was a beautiful three-year-old German Shepherd K-9 officer with the Bartlesville Police Department. His handler, Officer Troy Newell, and Cooper worked all kinds of operations, but mostly finding narcotics and keeping our City safer from unsavory drug dealers.
