Today we caught him, instead of drinking the water, he pawed at it with his front paws (alternately) until they became a wet mess... Then he happily walked around the house tracking his wet little paw prints. :) I know that dogs sweat and cool off through the pads on their feet, but I've never seen a dog do this before.
Sydney certainly never did this... does anyone else's dog use their water dish just to cool off their paws?? Or is Cooper just a silly strange dog? ;) (Or should I even be asking this, considering he grew up in OUR house?) ;D
