My Darling Coco

It is with an incredibly heavy heart that I have to type out these words.  Over the last couple of years I have mentioned my darling little King Charles Cavalier Coco, who recently was diagnosed with Syringomyelia which brings on convulsions and pain.  She has been a permanent fixture on my side bar and that photo has made me smile so much.  She has been a faithful companion, a comedian, a confidant and incredible friend.  This morning she was a usual self, happy to see me come down the stairs and get her medication but she then started convulsing and within minutes was taken from me.  I can't describe the words I am feeling right now so will just leave you with the last photo I took of her two days ago when she was playing hide and seek.


Understandably I will be taking a blogging break for a little while, but in the meantime, give your furry friends a meaningful hug, you never know when they will be taken from you.

  20. This very sad loss of that beautiful little Coco this morning is such heartbreaking news. I know just how special she was to you dear Chel. Please know we are all thinking of you. Take time to sit quietly later, to remember the good times, and just how wonderful her life was with a family who cared for her so much and made many years full of special moments and much love.

    I hold you close dear friend and hope your sadness will eventually be eased knowing Coco was loved so much. I'm glad you have that sweet and recent photo of her peeking out in a playful mood knowing she was happy always.

  33. Chel, I am devastated for you. You must be in such shock at losing her so suddenly and traumatically and this will be a hard night for you. Our furry friends mean such a lot to us that their parting rips out a chunk of our heart. I am so sorry for your loss and have given my two a huge hug from a lovely lady and sweet Coco as instructed.

    Be kind and gentle to yourself, just as Coco would have wished.

  50. Chel, I am so very sorry to hear this sad news about your sweet Coco. I know first hand how hard it is to lose our furry friends. I've lost many over the years and it never gets easier. I know you are hurting and grieving right now and that is understandable. Just know that we all care and feel your loss. May you find comfort in your sweet memories and knowing that Coco is not in pain now or suffering. May you someday find it in your heart to allow another sweet animal into your life to bring you the same joy and love as Coco did. Sending furry hugs and human ones too.
