Phase 1: Cooper makes his initial assessment of the offerings. Naturally, he has to have his front feet on the door so that he can do a proper survey. Tara politely waits, and licks her lips. Phase 2: All four of Cooper's feet are now on the dishwasher door, while he attacks the plates and various other
Phase 3: Cooper is in frenzy mode, afraid that his human jailers will come along any minute and spoil his fun. He wedges his upper body into the space between the racks so he can reach the items at the very back of the dishwasher. Tara politely works on the utensils in the silverware basket.
This results in Phase 4, when Cooper gets his head stuck between a large item in the bottom rack (like a colander) and the top rack, so that when he is eventually pulled out, he brings the top rack with him. Tara likes this part, as she is then able to reach more bowls in the top rack. I was unable to capture Phase 4 on film, as it also involves the dishwasher door making ominous groaning noises and me pulling on Cooper from behind, saying "Cooper, No! Cooper, No!"
So there you have it, Cooper misbehaving. Be assured that everyone got treats after this incident!
