Dear Amy-- That's so sad. I will say prayers that Coco will have a peaceful journey to the Bridge where she will be young & healthy again forever. What a horrible loss to so many people.
Hugs to you-- Helen (Teddy's Mom)

I am sorry to hear about COCO, I know that every loss, whether it is your own or someone else's is very hard to deal with. She was there for all of those in the assisted living home. I am sure she brought much joy to the residents there and made their time there more enjoyable. She deserves a special place at the Bridge, a place where she is now taken care of. Sending you all my best, Helen

These dogs are so special because they give of themselves to help humans. I think there's a special place reserved for them.

I'm so sorry about the loss of Coco. I can imagine her spirit exactly as you describe it because we lost our little guy, Gus (our 12-year-old chocolate lab) 26 days ago. I've had multiple dogs in my life but never one so gentle, so loving and so human-like in my entire life and I doubt seriously we'll will ever find one like that again. I am sure that Coco loved the attention of everyone at the facility and I can just imagine how attached everyone was to her because I'm sure she was incredibly lovable. My thoughts and prayers are with you and everyone at your facility during this sad time... doodlebug
