I believe Hooper must have had some very bad experiences in the storm because he still hates water. He's happy to drink it, but he hides when it rains, going out only long enough to "do his business." Most Labs love to swim; not Hooper. He even avoids walking through puddles. Baths? Let's not go there.
However, he's a sunny soul. Give this boy a tummy rub and a tennis ball and he's happy. He especially loves climbing on the sofa and watching a Yankee game with a favorite toy or a marrow bone.
I hope we have a few sunny days soon. Hoop's getting cabin fever.
