Cocoa is a miniature black and tan male dachshund and he is our sweet boy.
When he was a puppy, he was naughty and destroyed my shoes, my daughter’s toys, and cords. He loved squeaky toys so much and we needed to take it away because of so much noise. He liked to play in the water and he was very active.
He had been an only pet before our baby Haru who is shaded cream female long hair dachshund joined in our family. Cocoa became a good big brother for Haru. He protected Haru from other big dogs and let Haru to get all our attention for herself. I believe he felt sad a little or jealousy but he never showed his feeling and let Haru do whatever she wanted.
We had many adventures together to go to Oregon, California, or eastern Washington. Cocoa has been always with us in good time and bad time. On February 8th, he turned 14 years old. His beautiful tan fur turned white. He often stumbles and doesn’t like to walk. His eyesight got weak. Although he has a big appetite, he became very skinny. He got more and more stubborn as he got older, but he is a still very sweet and beautiful boy.
We will take very good care of you, Cocoa. Please stay healthy and strong for many more years so that we can spend more time together. Happy birthday Cocoa! We love you, sweet boy!
Theo is my daughter’s golden doodle puppy. As all puppies are, Theo is super cute and sweet. I love his fluffy soft fur and he is just like a teddy bear. My daughter and her boyfriend sometimes come with Theo and we have meals together. My husband and I love that they come over but there is one problem, our dogs, Cocoa and Haru. Cocoa is almost 14 years old and Haru is seven. When Theo comes over, it’s always quite a chaos in my house.
Cocoa and Haru are miniature dachshund. Cocoa is Black and Tan male dog and Haru is shaded cream long hair female dog. They are very sweet but very protective and they are not interested in a puppy.
My daughter, her boyfriend, and Theo who is now 6 month old and getting big came over for breakfast on Saturday morning. Cocoa and Haru love their big sister (my daughter) and her boyfriend but are not sure about Theo. He is a puppy who is super excited with other dogs. He wants to play, play and play. He explored every corner of my house and found Cocoa and Haru’s toy basket. He took each toy out of the basket and played with all toys. Although he was chased off by Cocoa and Haru, he never gave up and tried to play with Cocoa and Haru in his way. I feel sorry for Theo but I guess the age gap is too far between a puppy and a senior dog.
Dogs were barking and people were talking around the table enjoying my husband’s homemade breakfast. The squeaky toys were everywhere. I sometimes have a headache after they left. It was quite noisy but happy time with my family. A small happiness in one Saturday morning.
