Last night I was out shovelling snow....which seems to be a daily event here. My neighbour was out doing his driveway and his two girls were playing in the snow. They are 4 & 6 and the 6 year old is a bit scared of Cooper, only because of his size & a bad experience when she was younger with a big dog. The 4 yr old is fearless and LOVES Cooper, always wants to play with him. Well, they spent about an hour simply throwing a toy for Cooper in the snow and watching him dive, butt tuck, dig, etc. They were laughing their heads off. I was watching out of the corner of my eye and before long, the 6 yr old was playing with Cooper - no fear!!! She kept calling him, "Come here, boy! Come here, buddy!". It made me smile, I'm hoping that her fear of Cooper is now over.
Unfortuately, the joyful moments came to an abrupt end when suddenly I heard the words, "EEEEWWWW!!!! He's pooping!!!!".
