This past summer, Cooper and his family went camping in McGregor Point Provincial Park. Tethered on a rope between two trees, he was able to run the entire back of the campsite. There was a small ditch that ran behind the site as well and it was filled with small branches and twigs. Over the 5 day trip, Cooper pulled out every stick from the ditch that he could find. Interestingly, he was very neat about it. His collection was divided into 4 different piles. He would chew on his find for a couple of minutes then add it to a pile. If you took one, he would try everything he could to get the stick back, either by barking at you or he’d sneak up behind you. Then once he had his stick back it was again added to his collection.
