We took Cooper to the beach for the first time this past weekend. He has grown to like water much more than he did when we lived in Alabama. That didn’t change the fact that he freaked out the second the Pacific Ocean water touched him though (see first video). We let Cooper off the leash for a few minutes, but then put him back on because he seemed more interested in playing with other dogs than listening to us. Plus, I had the COMPLETELY logical fear that Cooper would swim too far out in the water and drown. Lovely.
I guess he had too much fun, because this was Cooper on the car ride home.
Where does he learn this stuff? he did this all on his own. I promise.
Also, just a couple of videos to display Cooper’s love for car rides.
we take family photos like we’re professionals
you know i’m framing this one
last week Cooper and I went for our normal morning walk.
we walked around the pond.
we chased the lizards.
cooper got in the water.
cooper found a ball in a bush
and he kept it in his mouth for the entire rest of our walk.
at the end of our walk, i made him set it down.
for the next few days we kept the ball in a bush outside our front door
and every time we went for a walk, cooper would bury his face in the bush
and come back out with the ball in his mouth
and he would keep it in his mouth for the entire rest of our walk
so finally i brought the ball inside and kept it on a ledge by the staircase
i wanted it to be special
not just another ball
and it is special
this is what it makes cooper do after we have played a good game of fetch
