I am the proud parent of two beautiful puppies, Angel (1 year and 4 months) and Cocoa (7 months). They are quite a handful, especially Cocoa who I am still housebreaking. But they are such a delight. I rescued them from shelters. They are both little black dogs. Angel is a dachsador: half dachshund, half labrador retriever, weighing in at about 23 lbs. Cocoa is a chiweenie: half dachshund, half chihuahua, weighing in at about 15 lbs.
My puppies have such wonderful and distinct personalities. Angel is a happy-go-lucky, friendly labrador type and my guardian angel. Angel is the official protector of the den. She is also a runner and got off her collar a couple of weeks ago and scared me half to death. But to make an hour long story short, she came home and has been under lock and key ever since.
My boyfriend nicknamed Cocoa “Coco Gaga” because she is a wild, crazy diva of a dog. Diva is probably not the best word for it. But think of how strange and bold Lady Gaga is and I think you could apply a little of that to my Cocoa. But, for such a tiny wild thing she has a ton of heart and showers me with love and affection.
It led me to ask her today, “How do you get so much love in there?” Amazing really.
