Likes: Getting attention from humans, walks, riding in the car with his head out the window, loves going to see the touchy-feely vet, the beach, licking your bare feet
Pet-Peeves: Quincy tugging his body parts when he's trying to sleep, seeing us with the bottle of ear cleaner, not being able to go with us every single time we leave the house, delivery trucks (mom loves them), squirrels running along our fence
Favorite Toy: Quincy
Favorite Food: Hot dogs, no-salt canned green beans with his kibble, Dingo bones
Favorite Walk: Neighborhood public park to stick his nose in squirrel holes; dog park to play with the Chinese Foo dogs, Flynn, Owen, and Olivia (F-O-O), who live directly across the street from us.
Best Tricks: Paws open the kitchen cabinet when we're not home to check if the trash can needs emptying. Blocks the door from the inside when we're outside trying to get in.
Arrival Story: We got Cosmo after seeing an ad in the paper. The puppies all looked so cute and we had recently lost our dear Duster, our first Golden boy (not pictured), due to natural causes. Husband picked the puppy with the most "personality" and that is what we got indeed! Cosmo came home to become buddies with our beloved Butch.
Bio: Cosmo was diagnosed with hip displaysia in both hips at eight months of age and received a total hip replacement on the worse one shortly after he turned one year of age. In April, 2004, he had TPLO knee surgery, fought a bacterial infection on the surgical site until August, 2004 (four months), and had three ear hematomas that had to be removed and stitched up like a quilt. An oral sarcoma was also discovered on his front jaw and after consulting with a specialist who wanted to remove part of his jaw, we did some research, listened to our hearts, and opted not to do anything aggressive and proceeded with his knee surgery. HE LIVED FIVE MORE YEARS. Through all his mishaps, Cosmo never lost his spunk and positive attitude. Cosmo loves going to see his vet and getting attention from everyone there. He also believes that everyone who comes to visit us at home comes just to see him! He's so used to all the cats that he could care less!
**AUGUST 22, 2009 - Our brave and sweet boy made his journey to the bridge at the age of 12**
I want to thank my friends for stopping by to remember me on the two-year anniversary of my Rainbow Bridge Day. I know it means alot to my Mom and Dad.
Huey is giving my Mom and Dad lots of love and joy, but in the middle of all of that are flashbacks of the days when both Quincy and I were with them. It really wasn't that long ago, and they will always miss us along with those before us.
Time passes by so quickly, but nothing will ever change the fact that I was a special part of their lives. I will continue to live forever in their memories, dreams and hearts.
My angel pals are calling me to get back to the party now so I have to go, but I'll be around, even if you can't see me!
