Miss Coco Chanel Passes Today to Doggie Heaven
Coco was the inspiration for this site. And she stayed behind in Michigan with my partner and I moved to Chicago and later acquired another Yorkie, Miss Trixie Lee.
I saw Coco every time I returned to the Detroit area. She was so precious! But it was evident in the last couple years she was really aging and slowing down.
Coco was a wonderful dog with a wonderful spirit. (Don't we all say that, about our babies?!)
In her later years she dealt with cataracts surgery and more recently dementia. The last time I saw her she did not recognize me, which made me sad. But she still enjoyed playing with toys and lead a good life.
In the last week, it was evident she was slipping away and not eating. We did not want her in pain or to suffer, after discussions with her vet, my partner back in Michigan decided last night, he would release her, to go to doggie heaven.
My partner in Michigan said, " Starting on Sunday of this week she wouldn’t eat regardless of what we tried. Last night and this morning she wouldn’t drink any water.
This morning I took her to the vet and we decided it would be cruel & selfish if we kept her in this world.
Coco was born 1/10/96. She came into my life 2/12/96 and passed today 2/06/13. She filled our lives with 17 years of joy. It gives me solace knowing she’s in heaven with her big sister Molly, as I believe all dogs go to heaven."
Rest in Peace my little Coco. You will never be forgotten for all of the love you gave us.
Thank YOU, Miss Coco!
