Cooper has this thing about shadows and light. Valerie thinks in a previous life he was kenneled in a dark place and the light was his only connection to the outside world. I like to think he's just fascinated by the contrast of dark and light.
The early morning sun gets him in a frenzy. He'll walk around the sunlight and find the best viewing angle. If a leaf falls outside and casts a shadow, he jumps up and starts pawing at the carpet as if it just moved. If the leaves are really falling, he might even growl at the carpet.
Once the sun is gone, he's just as happy to lay down and take a nap from his hard day at work.
