My Beautiful Cocoa! July 6th 2004 to June 26th 2015
Her tongue was always out even when she slept
I got Cocoa from at 10 weeks old from Koyne's Australian Shepherds. It was their first litter and she was my first Aussie. I have and still do thank them, for giving me such a great dog!
She was socialized, potty trained and a very good puppy and she blossomed into an amazing adult Aussie. Cocoa was always such a very mild mannered easy going dog. Very very smart! I couldn't believe at times how smart she really was.
Besides one time the first winter I had her (and she was about to go into heat the first time) where I had to chase her in flip flops in about three inches of snow for almost an hour, she was an excellent dog.
Once I got her spayed she calmed down and from then on I could have her in the front yard with no leash and she would just sniff around and eventually just lay down and enjoy the weather. She really loved cold weather.
She loved her squirrel toys! Her ducks which sounded like a real duck when she played with them. Her favorite was peanut butter in a kong! Though she liked her other treats like frosty paws, whimzees and greenies and puperoni and other various treats. Though she would sit next to me and beg when I ate she would never take food unless I gave it to her. I could leave the room and come back and my food would still be there.
I always joked that Tricia who I got her from always said Cocoa was the least kissie pup of the the litter and I told her and would always joke that if she was the least to give kisses than I could only imagine how much the others gave kisses because Cocoa would always give puppy kisses.
She was my buddy and gave me true unconditional love and I couldn't of ask for a better dog and I know one day I will see her again. Cocoa in November of 2014 started to cough and my vet told me she had congestive heart failure.
She was on two medications which were basically like blood pressure medication and made her more comfortable. On June 26th 2015 she passed around noon. I still miss her and it's hard because our dogs let alone Aussies because they are "Velcro" dogs it's hard when they aren't around.
I love you Cocoa! You were daddies best girl! R.I.P. Cocoa!
