Coco

So over the weekend, we finally took Coco in for her comprehensive exam, because of how we got her.

So the way I got Coco (if you haven’t been around) was that a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend decided that they no longer wanted Coco, and with that, decided that they were going to take her to the pound.  I heard that, and could not let that happen, and sight unseen, agreed to take her in.  She was incredibly well-behaved, sweet, and got along well with my cat, so I had no issue.  Her worst problem is that sometimes, when I don’t take her out every second of the day, she’ll have a little accident on the carpet, which sparked the investment in the steam cleaner.

For one, she’s never had doggie dental care, and is going to have some teeth pulled.  She had a few teeth broken, and is potentially in pain because of this.  Secondly, she has a wee bit of an infection in one of her ears.  And third, we’re watching a little bump on her chest which is probably just a fatty deposit.  Whew!

Okay, now tell me about your pets!

  1. I hate hearing about irresponsible pet owners. Realize the time and cost it takes BEFORE adopting a sweet innocent animal. I take my dogs in for dental care every single year – people underestimate how important it is for a dog’s health!! Sending good vibes to your little Coco!

    1. They are definitely a HUGE responsibility – now I totally get it when we were younger and used to beg our parents for a dog, and they said no. HUGE! We will get those teeth pulled for her, and hopefully she will be more comfortable!
