We have a lot of adjectives to describe our little Coconut. First we have Coco the Fugitive. Then there’s Coco the Wonder Dog. And even Coco the King. Coco weighs about 15 pounds. So you know that means? He thinks he’s all that and then some!
We’ve now added a new moniker, Coco the Nut! There’s lots of reasons he deserves this title. My favorite is how he sits by the side of the couch staring at us as if he’s seeking the meaning of life.
At least that’s what it looked like to me. Now I think he was just imploring us to let him join us on the couch.
We have a rule in our house: dogs don’t get on the furniture. Have you seen what dogs roll in when they get outside?
But things change when we visit Shawn’s parents. Some rules are lifted for both kids and dogs when grandparents are around. That means when we’re with grandma, Coco gets on the couch.
He doesn’t miss a beat in it either. He’s completely in his element taking that spot on the couch. So that’s why I now call him Coco the Nut.
Now when he stares at me in the evening, I know what he’s after.
I just tell him, “Wait until we’re with your grandma again.”
