   Leave a bone for Coco 1992-2008

Cocopup, Little Mama, munchin

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Sun Sign:
Quick Bio:

Pupperoni, belly rubs, car rides, freshly washed clothes--she likes the smell of Snuggle

getting yelled out, vacuum cleaner, running out of Pupperoni, when my son shows her "the finger"--she shows her teeth and growls

Favorite Toy:
stuffed animals, wash cloths

Favorite Food:

Favorite Walk:
anywhere with "mommy", shopping at Petco or Petsmart

Best Tricks:
Stands on her hind legs and spins like a ballerina, sits, gives paw, gives kisses

Arrival Story:
Found her in a little family owned pet store. They lost their lease and the store was closing for good in one hour. I immediately went to a MAC machine and bought her.

She is the "mom" to my other two dogs. Coco thinks she is human. When she goes for a ride in the car she always keeps her paw on the steering wheel. Coco thinks she is actually driving the car! One time she was sitting with her paws on the console and she shifted the car into neutral. When she was a puppy we could not keep her in a crate. She would find a way to escape everytime. She is just a wonderful sweet dog who is very smart. When Coco was younger she would accompany us to nursing homes for Pet Therapy. She is a ham and would always get so much attention. Sometimes we would make her wear her ballerina outfit and she would spin and twirl around and around for them. She can't do that now because she has a bad knee. She's been in 4 dog contests and has won everytime.

The Groups I'm In:

Coco passed away this morning. Her heart had gotten worse and she died lying next to me.
My beautiful sweet angel has gone on to be reunited with Punkin and Buddy and Cupcake
The house is so quiet without them and my heart is breaking
I love you Coco

Punkin died last night.
Buddy died four months ago.
I am all alone now and lonely.
Even though Punkin stole and hid the food I miss her so much. I miss her always complaining if I got too close to her, I miss her smell, I miss her companionship and I miss knowing she was right there with me
I'm scared now.
Mommy had made me sleep with Buddy's blanket so I can have his "smell " close to me all the time. Last night she covered me with Punkin's blanket also--sigh----I miss them.

Right after my "brother" Buddy died my eyesight got really bad from cataracts.
I am now totally blind.
I used to depend on Buddy to lead me down the steps and outside but he's not here to assist me anymore
Three weeks ago I fell down the last two steps and dislocated my hip----OUCH!!!
Mom had to rush me to the vets but it hurt so bad for them to pop it back in so they had to put me under anesthetic
I have a very bad heart mumur so the vet had emergency stand by in case I needed to be intubated--I DIDN"T---Yeah!!
Mom was pacing the floor the whole time and crying
Mom won't let me walk up or down the steps anymore so I get carried like a queen but I hate it. I want to be independent again and I miss my Buddy so much
I think I do pretty darn good though for being 16 years old---heck thats like 112 years in people years!!!
Anyway, I hear mom say that I am just so fragile and she wants to protect me forever......that's what my Buddy did----sigh.....
