He still keeps up 2 yr buddy Eli ,also a mini ,goes on daily hour walk , jumping up on furniture etc.and does not act like he's in pain .Any one else experience this with older mini ?

It is not uncommon, Max started doing it a bit a year or so ago, he is 10 and a half now.
If Cooper's OK in other respects then don't worry, it's quite normal.
I wouldn't however, encourage him to jump up and down on furniture or the car, you need to protect their joints as they get older.
