Bark Kent - Hello loyal readers and welcome to a furry special edition of Five Fur Friday. As you are all aware, a couple of weeks ago, Suzuki ran a competition with her 100th post and one of the winners prizes was to join me interviewing the pup of their choice. Well, the lovely Tessa had her name drawn by Suzuki and her choice was the beautiful Coco the Princess. So today I would like to welcome both Tessa and Coco.
Coco - Hi Bark Kent! First I would like to say that I am truly honored to have been chosen by Tessa to be interviewed by you. This is truly an honor and a moment that I will treasure forever
Tessa - Coco, how did you get your pretty name? How did you get to be a Princess?
Coco – Mommy and Daddy brought me home when I was about 3 weeks old. They talked about tons of names such as Honey & sugar…but mommy said that I looked like a little “Coco Bean” because I was so tiny (I fit in the palm of my mommy’s hand. I didn’t even have any teeth I was so young). Daddy fell in love with that name. So they called me Coco Bean but then daddy realized that I was more of a princess so now they call me Coco The Princess…but they still call me Coco Bean too...it’s kind of like a cute family nickname that only my mommy and daddy call me.
Bark Kent - Who was the first pup to bark on your blog and do you still bark with them today?
Coco – this is a funny story. Stanislaw (http://www.ieatrawmeat.blogspot.com/) was a blog that my followed for about 6 months before she bought me. My mommy loved reading about Stanislaw and Big Pupi’s blog. Stanislaw was the very first furkid to leave a comment on my blog and it is because of Stanislaw and Big Pupi’s blog that my mommy was inspired to start a blog for me! Without Stan and Big Pupi I never would have met so many wonderful friends. And yes, I still follow Stanislaw and big Pupi’s blog and we still bark with each other!
Tessa - Coco, we all know that your Mommy works all day and goes to school at night and your Daddy works all day. Who takes care of you and your 2 new sisters all day? Do you all go to daycare or do you have a nanny?
Coco – Well, My daddy only works 2 miles from home. So at 7:20 mommy puts the puppies in the puppy pen and puts a weeble-pad outside the pen for me. I run loose all day. Daddy comes home from 11-12 and plays with all of us. Then he comes back home at 3pm. Mommy is home by 5pm. Mommy only goes to school on Monday nights from 6-10 so daddy amuses us while mommy is studying. Realistically, we are never home for more than three and a half hours alone. When we are home alone (me and my sisters) I keep them company and make sure that they stay warm and I clean their bottoms after they potty too!
Bark Kent - If you could teach Truffles & Lady Godiva any trick in the world, what would it be and why?
Coco – If I could give my little sisters anything it would be as follows:
Lady Godiva -I would give her the gift of sight. Mommy & Auntie Gizelle discovered yesterday that she is not completely blind but she is very close to it.
Truffle – I would teach her how to be more lady like. She tends to be incredibly pushy and assertive.
But first things first…POTTY TRAINING! I would teach them that they have to potty on the weeble-pad in the kitchen and not on my carpet!
Tessa - Coco, I understand that where you lived prior to your Forever Home was quite horrendous, can you tell us all about how your Mommy and Daddy came about finding you and bringing you home at 3 weeks old?
Coco – My mommy found me on a web site called http://www.kijiji.com/. My mommy showed my picture to my daddy and daddy jumped out of his chair pointing at the computer screen screaming “THAT ONE! I WANT THAT ONE!”. It was love at first sight. That was on a Friday afternoon and on Sunday morning mommy & daddy picked me up and brought me to my forever home. I have attached the photo that was posted on my advertisement that my parents fell in love with.
Bark Kent - Thank you furry much fur today Ladies and fur making this a Five Fur Friday first! Suzuki's Mum has asked me to post an update on Scooby as well... The vet rang her this morning and he has examined Scooby's urine. He found no crystals or anything like that, so it looks like his kidneys are OK. He has narrowed it down to being trauma (Scooby may have knocked himself playing or jumping over something) or a possible prostate issue. A lot depends on how Scooby behaves this weekend. If the bleeding stops (and it does appear to have, for now) it is trauma. If not, and the bleeding continues he will need to go in for an ultrasound. Suzuki has promised to keep you updated and his family thank you all for your support.
Until next time, this is Bark Kent signing out.
