We often call Cooper the Coop Show. He is a show. He has more energy than middle schoolers, drinking Monster Energy Drinks, at a school dance, at 2 pm. We can't say certain words around our house because he is very smart (or well-versed in his favorite words). We can't say walk, park, Frisbee, Creek or Dog Park. We are super creative with our nicknames for these places/things. We say W, P, F, C and DP. Cooper is not very good at acronyms.
After a family vacation last summer to Cable, WI, we realized how fun it was to throw a Frisbee off a dock and see how far he can jump to catch it. This summer we found the CP (aka a Park near our house where Minnehaha Creek just happens to run by). Coincidentally Nate found out about a competition called DockDogs, which is just that, a competition to see how far dogs will jump off of a dock!
Cooper competed this summer and his best jump was 18 feet 9 inches, though we know he goes much further when his is in his home stadium (the CP) and not a fake dock and tank.
It was a blast to watch him compete and to see all the other dogs that love to jump for toys! Most of them choose a ball or hunting buoy, Cooper prefers his Frisbee. We were so proud of him and Griffin loved watching his big brother make our family so proud!
