So what did you do this weekend? We took advantage of a friend house-sitting to give Cooper a pool play-date and to try out a floating pool lounger.
For over three hours, Cooper dived non-stop into the pool to retrieve his special water toys.
He totally lived up to his Labrador Retriever heritage and loved every minute as you can see.
Personally I think he just enjoys making a big splash.
He wasn't too sure about climbing aboard the floating lounger at first, but with a helping hand and some reassurance he soon mastered it.
I know if we ever get a place with a pool he'll want to be in it all the time.
Luckily, 'Swimmer's Ear' drops work wonders and stops him getting too many ear infections.
One day Cooper you'll have a pool of your own (with a strong filter to cope with all your dog hair)...
