My beloved Coco crossed the Rainbow Bridge a year ago today. Not a day has gone by that I don't think about her and all the happy memories we made together. Coco enjoyed being outdoors and I loved having her sitting on my lap like a child. She claimed as her own bed an old recliner and slept on it every night until she started to loose her agility.
Two years ago this June we sold the house where we raised our children and moved into a new town home. While packing we noticed that Coco was nowhere to be found. After searching room after room, we found her hiding in a corner inside the closet in my daughter’s room. She liked this room; it was there where she would come to play with her kitten friends. While packing, she had to check out the boxes scattered around the house. She almost got packed inside one! :)
Coco got used to the new abode pretty quick. She could always be found napping in her cozy soft-sided crate.
From a very young age we took Coco to the beach in Rocky Point, Mexico. She loved playing in the tide pools. After we bought the boat, she came sailing with us in San Diego. A fine doggie-sailor, she had her very own life vest. Taking her to the shore for potty breaks was a job for the kids.
My dog was not the only pet from the Slowtrav community that crossed the Rainbow Bridge last year. During the first three months of 2008 four ST members had to say their final goodbyes to their precious kittens. Gone but not forgotten are Jetbuny's Hobbes, Janie's Sophie, Pokey's Leo, and Nancy's beautiful Meow. They all live in our hearts and in the wonderful memories we have of our furkids.
