“Koko Brown”

We brought “Koko Brown” home yesterday.  The original Koko left us the day after Thanksgiving. We discovered a lesion in her mouth Christmas day 2009 and took her to the vet the next morning.  He suspected melanoma and sent us to a specialist in Santa Cruz who recommended radiation and chemo treatments.  We managed to beat the disease, giving her almost another year. But her trachea began to give out last September making it progressively harder for her to breathe.  Well, we had nearly 15 wonderful years together …

Anyway, we picked up this little bundle yesterday. Found her at the local SPCA after we received a message from the website “Adopt-a-Pet” sponsored by Purina. We were told about this service by Janelle Tessier of Baton Rouge, LA who helps us at our trade shows. Many thanks to Janelle and Purina  Our new “Koko Brown” has a couple of habits we’ll need to address, but all-in-all she’s a delightful addition to the family.
