This story tells how Gracie and Joe's dog Cooper met his best friend Trooper.
Gracie and Joe's parents are serving our country overseas and they bring back Trooper, who needs a vet and some rest. After they return to the service, Gracie and Joe want to do something for their parents so they wouldn't miss home so much, so they send them a stuffed dog of Hunter :)
It's a bit unusual for both parents to be serving overseas, but it added to the story that Gracie and Joe are proud of them and want to do for them.
A cute story that shows how family members care about each other and comfort each other.
