Favorite Walk:
around the block or at Pyramid Mtn.

Best Tricks:
will get ball and then shove it with his nose to roll it back to you

Arrival Story:
Coco was at the shelter I volunteer at in quarantine due to a bite incident. I spent time with him and found that he had no agression in him and when the ACO suggested my husband and I call the owners and say we'll take him (it was said they were going to euthenize him), we found out that the bite was not all his fault and they wanted nothing more than to let us take him. He has visited them on several occassions, but doesn't hesitate to leave and come home with us. He was supposed to only be with us temporarily until we could get him into a rescue, but my husband and Coco bonded so we couldn't give him up.

Coco has a very strong hunting instinct and is not allowed near our rabbit, ferrets, guinea pigs or birds. He has been key in helping his adopted sister Daisy out of her shell. He is happy to perform for treats and helps "encourage" ppl to donate money to the shelter while marching along parade routes and doing his tricks. He happily chases his other adopted sister Fiona around the apartment like a nut and is at risk of being kidnapped by his Auntie and Grandma next time they babysit for him.

Fun at the Dog Park

On Sunday Mommy took my sister Fiona to the dog park and when daddy got home, he took me and my other sis Daisy. It's a new dog park and it was a LOT of fun! There were lots of nice doggies. I made friends with a cocker spaniel named Brown whose owner would throw a ball, Brown would chase it, and I'd chase Brown! It was so much fun. I got so tired that I passed out as soon as we got home. Poor Fiona couldn't walk from 3 hours of play. Mommy got to talk to a lot of nice dog owners and meet so many nice dogs. She said there was a Newfoundland, a few jack russells, an Akita, a Lab, beagles, and more. And there were neat water fountains for the doggies, which my Aunt Cynthia would help all the doggies use to get a drink. I can't wait to go again!


Just a Hello

Mommy insisted that I write something, so here I am. I take after daddy, I don't like to write. And since mommy is looking over my shoulder, I can't say anything bad about my sisters either. Daisy is a big pain in the butt tho, she likes to use me as a bridge to get to mommy when we're lying in bed. And Fiona, she doesn't care where I am, she just plops her big butt down wherever she feels like it and usually it's on me! It snowed yesterday so we all got short walks, which was fine with me because my little tootsies were getting cold. I can't wait for warm weather again. Okay, that's all, I have nothing interesting to say except that I think it's wrong when mommy laughs at me when I pull one of my feet into my sweater and end up hopping around the apartment with 3 legs. She says that if I ever have to lose a leg, I will be fine.
