Coco lives in a foster home with 1 adult and three children (11,10 &10). She much prefers the older human because that’s the one that provides food, cuddles, and walkies! But she does love the tinier humans – they like to play zoomies with her. But, she can be clumsy and knock them over, so older children would suit her better.
If the big human goes out of the house leaving her with another human, Coco will cry. However, if you put her outside and say goodbye, she is fine on her own and sleeps. Coco has adjusted well to a full time worker – she sleeps all day! She does not dig, cry, or chew on anything she is not supposed to – apart from that one time human left her thongs out! Washing, kids shoes everything always remain where it was! Coco is fully toilet trained and lets you know when she wants to go out by scratching on the door! If you’re asleep, you’ll be woken up with a cold nose on your nose to let her out!
At around 5pm, Coco knows her humans are due back and she gets her excitement on! She is very very excitable and jumps on everyone but she settles down after 5 mins of attention. She follows big human like a shadow EVERYWHERE! She knows not to come into the kitchen unless invited and will happily wait around. Her table manners have improved so much and does not interfere with anyone eating their dinner (as long as it is at the dinner table – lounge room is fair go apparently!) – she patiently waits for hers.
Coco knows that she gets her walkies after dinner, around 7-730pm. She will give you the stare down and scratch at the door. She is very strong on the lead, but is learning slowly not to pull.
Coco’s witching hour is at 9pm – she knows the tinier humans are in bed and she has big human all to herself! She loves to play wrestle and finish off with a cuddle! Coco and big human tend to go to bed late so Coco is a night owl! Coco sleeps with her human and may sometimes snore, but it’s still cute! However she is happy to have her own bed, sleep on the lounge or wherever.
