Cooper and His Sticks
Our Dane puppy has developed a stick fixation. More specifically, as soon as he finds a stick in the park he goes through three Stick Stages:
Stage 1 - The Find: In this stage, it is key to survey the area to insure that no one is going to steal your stick.
Stage 2 - The Chew: Savor your stick! Yummy yummy!
Stage 3 - The Evade: Inevitably (if you are lucky), someone will try to come and steal your stick. This immediately leads to a game of Stick Keep Away. This is Cooper's favorite part.
