Arrival Story:
My wife and I adopted Coco when he was approximately 8.5 weeks old from the Lewis and Clark Humane Society. He came from a litter of 5 puppies that was born in a local animal hospital. Mom and puppies were all turned into the shelter. Coco was the last remaining puppy available for adoption. When he saw me for the 1st time he came right to me and started to lick my shoe. It melted my heart. He's an obsessive licker. Before we brought Coco home, the shelter staff warned us that he was especially gassy that day. We thought, how bad could it possibly be? Not even 15 seconds into the car ride home all of the windows in the car were down and shirts were pulled up over noses with eyes watering from the stench. How could one puppy smell sooooo bad? Turned out Coco was allergic to the soy in the Science Diet the shelter had been feeding him. Every day so far with this dog has been a fun, interesting and wonderful adventure.

Vet Checkup

So Coco went to the Vet yesterday for his annual check-up. Learned that he still has some growing to do and currently weighs 84.4 LBS. When we got Coco as a puppy he was just around 13 LBS. The snow is melting outside and Coco loves being able to dig in the yard again and go on walks without having to wear a jacket.
Today he is going to get a bath as he reeks! He played really hard with the neighbors 120 lbs St. Bernard Black Lab X. He came back inside looking like a slobber covered football. But, he was thrilled! :)
