a new member of our pack! Coco is a stray dog that was rescued by Jan of Proyecto Animales de la Calle. She is about seven months old, and appears to be part poodle and part terrier. Maybe.
Our dogs stay with Jan whenever we go out of town so they got to know Coco a bit when we went on our birthday getaway.
Lucy, Henry, and Coco.
One thing led to another and we decided to ask Coco to join our pack. It is wonderful to have a little one in the house again, and Henry especially loves having someone to play with. Lucy seems a bit indifferent, but she is starting to show her age and is most interested in napping somewhere near to either Paul or me.
Coco is a very sweet puppy… she really wants to please, and her only fault so far is that she jumps up on you when you come in the door. She knows “sit” and “down” already. I am working with her on “stay.” She and Henry are almost the same height, but Henry is a bit stockier. We think they’ll probably be pretty close in size when she is full grown.
When we had our farm it was called “Black Dog Farm” and all our dogs were always black, so we are bucking tradition here, but it just feels right.
