The love of coco the family dog.
We all dread the day when our dogs will leave us and I guess we all hope it’s a painless parting. So I want today to write about coco my brothers chocolate Labrador.
Never did I meet coco and not feel love, we had a friendship as did everyone she knew. Coco was amenable and would adapt to any situation. It seemed her duty on the planet was to warm hearts and take away pain through love and hugs.
When you saw her you would get out of your car as quickly as possible. Knowing her exuberance would end with a number 11 down your car door.
Me personally I was always a bit rough as we played together, but I like to think she enjoyed it.
You could never leave food around where coco was, or anything edible for that matter. She was quite partial to after eights, I was to find out after leaving them on the floor from the night before. My fault entirely – cakes – even birthday cakes, I believe a chunk of an 80th birthday cake was missing, when it came to the cutting!
Coco was known to eat cakes and 12 paper cup cake cases were found one day in amongst her doings.
Some dogs especially labs are food orisntated. We all loved coco in this house, and could never imagine cancer would take coco.
Our dog Faith adored coco and if we said her name in the house she would look for her eager to find her. She always got excited 2 or more miles away knowing they would play together. I am fairly sure coco thought she was male at times.
Coco was playful and was always up for a laugh.
Coco was a faithful companion to her family and without doubt filled their house with joy and made a house a home.
I personally will miss arriving at my brothers to be greeted by Coco. Possible not the defacating around our pool table however. All the same, coco will be missed by many. So glad you got to meet Lily Coco. We will miss you and will always have a place in our hearts. Thank you for all the love you brought to us all. Love always Mark, Andie, Faith, Lily and Jenson.
