I wish Coco had been my dog. I found him on the side of a country road in my hometown. I was taking a scenic country drive when I saw him lying on the side of the road. I had to make sure he had already died. Something just kept nagging at me to make sure. So I got out and made sure. Sure enough he was. Thank God for that. I bent down and took off his collar. I knew if he were my dog I would want to know what happened and where he was. There was nothing else I could do. I said a little prayer for him and left him there. What else could I do?? So, I called the number on his tag. It ended up being the Animal Control Dept. in Cook County, IL. It took a while, but I finally was given the number for the owner. She really did seem upset. She had given Coco to a friend to watch for a few weeks in Chicago. She was moving. The guy was a loser and decided to bring him all the way to Indiana and dump poor Coco where he had never been before in the middle of the country. The guy thought he's just a dog. I'll just get rid of him. She wondered why he wouldn't return her calls... I know there was more to the story but what was done was already finished. She cried and wanted his collar, so I mailed it to her. She thanked me, etc., but I was too upset to care about that. I would want someone to do that for me if the unthinkable happened. Needless to say, he was a beautiful White Pit Bull. Does that really matter? I don't think so. People make dogs aggressive and mean. They aren't born that way. I really don't want to rant on about breeds that are banned, etc. This isn't the place for that. I just want Coco to be remembered. He did matter to me, even though he already crossed that beautiful bridge. He deserves some love and respect even in death. REST IN PEACE COCO. YOU WILL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN!
Note: A huge thank you to my friend Susie, for sponsoring dear Coco. It means so much to me.
Body lost or destroyed
