Cooper, on the other hand, does not share his affinity for water. He sees it as a huge drinking bowl and will occasionally place a paw in the water as if testing the temperature. Certainly strange behavior for a Labrador, but we have been saying all along that he is a special dog.
I thought that his behavior might change after we took him for his first off-leash activity, in eight days, this afternoon. He is fully recovered from his surgery, but still not acting like a normal Labrador. We are not sure if this behavior warrants fixing; it may be better this way.
