Adopted January 2009 - July 1, 2019

My husband and I adopted Coco, then 4.5 years old, in Jan. 2009, nearly a year into our retirement. She lived with us for over ten years.

She loved summer, but wasn't a huge fan of winter. She enjoyed walks in "her" park until we moved to Maine, at which point she switched her enjoyment to walking up the dirt road with us to check the mail and soaking up the sun as she lay near the lake (we could never get her interested in swimming). She loved meeting new people and made friends with the electrician, the plumber, and the locksmith in turn. She knew a dozen tricks and willingly performed them for visitors ... provided she received a cookie upon their completion, of course. She was sweetness on legs.

Coco died July 1, about six weeks shy of her 15th birthday. Rest peacefully, my precious girl. You'll live forever in our hearts.
