We were on our morning walk with Cooper and Otis, when Cooper suddenly stopped and began to sniff the trunk of a tree. Coop raised his nose and stared up into the top of the tree.
I am not sure what Cooper smelled, perhaps a raccoon or opossum. It must have been very strong because Coop stood on his back legs, with his front resting against the tree and kept sniffing. Still not satisfied, Coop tried to climb the tree.
Unfortunately for Coop, he does not possess the tree climbing gene. We pulled a reluctant Coop off the tree, but it was obvious that he was frustrated.
