Cooper the "Ridge - Dane"

Although Great Danes have a reputation as being mellow "couch potatoes", no one told Cooper this.  He has always idolized Rufus, his big brother, and we suspect that Cooper considers himself an honorary Rhodesian Ridgeback.  We regularly take the boys for walks in the woods behind our house, and they invariably spend the first half hour or so playing chase among the trees.  This starts with us putting the boys in a "sit - stay", taking the boys off leash, and then releasing them to play.

Both Kelly and I love watching them bound through the trees, all athleticism and grace...

There usually a session of Rufus chasing Cooper, followed by Cooper chasing Rufus.

What fun! Nala would totally run into one of the trees though. :)
