Some of you might have noticed that the name of Coco and my blog has been changed as is the photo that we had posted on there of both of us together. Momma was having a hard time coming here now that Coco has joined other pals over at the Rainbow Bridge. With one half of the "CocoRose Puff" missing it became necessary to change our blog to a more generic title that can be used for any family member. The new title "Barking from New Mexico" fills this need. We will never forget Coco Rose as she was one of a kind. Her photos will remain as will all of the blog entries and Dogster pages that were done before her passing. Thank you Finley for helping momma to change our blog title - she couldn't have done it without you.
Me, I am still having some "issues" with Coco's passing. I am not too much into eating and kind of stand around moping. Momma has been very worried about me so when she met a nice human lady who just happened to have two puppies, a play date was arranged for them to come over to our house and see if that didn't perk me up. The pretty Maltese mix is named Sadie and the little Shih Tzu is Hime. Both girls are real lookers and had lots of energy, I was super nice to them and didn't growl or show my teeth. Also, I let their human daddy pet me but momma was holding her breath the whole time and didn't venture far from me just in case I decided to sample some new figures - BOL.
Sadie and Hime spent several hours at our house and even took a nap with momma and me on the big bed. Hime, the Shih Tzu reminded me of Coco because she took everyone's cookies - BOL, BOL. She also climbed up on MY momma and decided she was going to sleep right on top of her. I looked at her but being the nice guy I can be, I went down to the bottom of the bed and napped there and let Hime snuggle and give MY momma kisses.
Momma has been looking to adopt another Shih Tzu and almost applied for a pretty black Shih Tzu that was in foster care. Momma had some concerns because this pup had bitten someone twice and was considered a "Risk". Just when momma decided that she would give this pup a chance, someone else adopted her. There are several Shih Tzu's up for adoption here in New Mexico, but most have come from breeders; have not been socialized or left out of their cages, plus they are over 7 years old. The humans discussed this matter and decided none of them would be suitable for our family. We are now in the process of adopting a Shih Tzu puppy from a wonderful breeder and should have one in August. Momma is hoping for another black Shih Tzu, but we have to wait to see what the Momma Shih Tzu has.
That's me sniffing Sadies behind - smelled pretty good too!
Here we all are checking out each other.
Sadie is smiling for the camera.
Nap time - Hime is getting ready to sleep by momma. Sadie is still checking me out. I'm going to sleep at the end of the bed. And those toes to the left of the photo belong to my momma - BOL
I'm getting another sniff of Sadie's behind - BOL
This is Hime - She sure is a looker!
My new pals - Sadie and Hime.
It was nice to have some four legged visitors but I still miss Coco...
