11) Spending a week with Miss Coco
When Miss Coco gets ready to pack up and go home, I left all her belonging on the sofa, and she seems strange to me.
She sat quietly by her belongings and stayed at the corner for hours without her usual jumping up and down and wriggling her tail seeking for hugs. This is unusual scene, it reminded me of the song by John Denver “I’m leaving`on the jet plane”. When a new journey is beginning, there may be something you can’t bear to leave behind.
Coco needs special diet advised by her vet. So, pan fried pork with potatoes and beans are must for her daily two meals. Whenever I am preparing her meal, Coco will not be the one sitting on my feet but it is our greedy Cougar instead.
She stayed away from me not because of my cooking style but because of this clumsy monster (Mr Cougar) trying to dash for the first hand meal.
When I’m done with the meal, I have to segregate the two by using the timber gate. Cougar will try to force his way through the gate for a bite of the meat. I have to deter him and at the same time cajole Miss Coco to sit tight, enjoy her meal without worries. Miss Coco will munch her meal bit by bit just like enjoying herself in a posh restaurant. While she maintain her civilized personality, she enjoyed the ‘lion roar’ at the same time behind the wooden gate.
This little princess is different from my rugged Mr Cougar. One so rough, the other so gentle. One is a rugby player, the other one a ballet dancer.
That is why when she knew she’s returning home, she started guarding her belongings and waited for her owner to arrive. This is the only reason I could figure out.
Man best friends undoubtedly have strong senses. She may be able to sense her owner 10 miles away who can’t wait to fly home soon to see her. Or she may be feeling glad she is leaving us soon…
Whatever is her reason, I thanked her for spending her time with us. The 7 days is not a long time but the memory is going to be forever.
Lastly, Miss Coco allowed me to have her picture posted without copyrights.
I hope to see you around, but I’m not sure if you feel the same…

Maybe putting her belongs on the sofa made her remember her owners, and maybe she felt guilty because she was having such a great time in your company..even with cougar

Haha! I hope so! 🙂

Thanks for reading, Natalya! 🙂

Please, can my cat, Buster, be friends too? He lost both his brothers this year. One was taken by coyotes,
Buster is shy, but has an unexpectedly wild heart.
See you later, Sydney Fong!

O, I’m so sorry to hear you lost your two companions!
Yes! Of course, we can be friend! I’m animal lover, Cougar is anything lover!
Thanks, Clarie! Cheers!

Miss Coco is so cute. Dogs can sense when things are different and, especially if her things were packed and “ready to go” 🙂 she would have known something was about to change. What a lovely, gentle lady. I like the Rugby Player / Ballerina analogy.
February 18, 2013 at 10:32 pm
You like Rugby player then Cougar will definitely love you!
Thanks, let’s move on long and happy life! 🙂

Oh Sydney, this almost made me cry. It reminded me of my old dog.. He was the cutest Bichon! Separation is my worst enemy! I feel your love for miss coco, and she is a lucky dog! She will be back in no time! As a matter of fact, I think she wants to be your pet! 🙂
February 18, 2013 at 10:38 pm
Whether we will meet again, I leave it to each other fate! But I thank her given us so much joy and fun to us!
And I thanks you too for sharing with me the story of Coco! Have a great day! 🙂

February 18, 2013 at 10:40 pm
Frankly, I quite missed her! 🙂
February 19, 2013 at 1:32 am

You too, good night! 🙂

Hahaha! Dogs are incredibly loyal. We were away for 2 1/2 weeks and we had our nephew look after Beau, our Great Dane. Even my daughter visited Beau while we were away. When we returned, he was so happy to see us. It’s not that he does not love my nephew or anything like that. But the attachment to us is indelible now.
February 19, 2013 at 3:05 pm
Yes, doggy is always the first welcome you home! 🙂
February 19, 2013 at 6:31 am
Awe…. She is so cute! My cat always try to get into my suitcase when she knows (and she always figures it out) that I’m going on a trip…LOL Love the pictures of Coco …. 😀

February 19, 2013 at 9:40 pm
Haha! You are so funny! Someone might think of Coconut too! 🙂
February 19, 2013 at 9:50 pm
