Meet Coco

We are thrilled to welcome Coco to our family! We brought her home on Saturday and she has been adjusting very well to her new environment. She seemed a little subdued the first day after the long car ride home and slept much of the second day, often opening her eyes just a little to make sure my two daughters were there ready to dote on her. She sleeps with a blanket and bunny that has her littermates’ smell and it’s just the sweetest thing. She had no accidents the first two days. We were amazed at how she instinctively knew to potty on her UGOdog or her litter box every single time.

She did have a tinkle accident today. We think she was too excited to see my daughter when she came home from school. We thought it was funny. Attaching some photos as well. We have fluffy blankets and comfy dog beds, but during the day she prefers to nap on shelves.

She is 12 weeks old today and we celebrated by giving her a frozen spoonful of apple, pumpkin and carrot baby food. She loved it and we love her.

Feeling so thankful for this precious one and grateful to Tom and Pam King for giving Coco such a great start in life.

That's hilarious she loves to sleep on the shelves! Too cute! Love the pictures, and I loved that you celebrated her 12th week birthday!

Thank you all! We are certainly enjoying her. She went on a short hunger strike and refused her breakfast this morning. She didn’t seem as energetic either. She is still adjusting to her new home.

We happened to have a vet appointment and the vet got very worried about it. She said for a dog this small her sugar levels may be too low from not eating for so long and she may have seizures. She tried to entice her with wet dog food, but Coco wasn’t interested. Then she gave her a small pea sized bit of Nutri-cal. Within minutes she started eating the kibble I brought along. Not sure if it was the Nutri-cal or if she was finally hungry.

By the time the kids came home from school she was as happy and energetic as ever. She keeps us on our toes!

Happy to be part of the family! Karen, I remember in one of your posts you said that Kodi was never interested in his stuffed Kong. Coco seems to have no interest either. What other chew toys or distractions did you use for him as a puppy? My husband and I alternated playing with her between our work calls. She hated being alone and let us know by barking. Even when I had her in the same room with me while I worked, she would bark. We love giving her attention, but hoping that the stuffed Kong would keep her busy. Right now we stuffed it with kibble and the baby food that she loved. No interest!

I would love advice from other forum members too! I would love to create more motivation for the kong or employ other tactics to have her be comfortable and happy when we can’t actively engage.
