I love Coffee, I love Tea,
I Love CoCo and CoCo Loves ME....
My name is Kella and this page is about and dedicated to my 11 year old Yorkie, CoCo who is my life breath. Where to begin….
When CoCo was a puppy; I got sick and she was my constant and only source of support. I was single, very, very sick, afraid, in bed most of the time and often crying... CoCo was there comforting me each and every moment. She’d lick the tears from my face and she would NOT leave my side.
When she was less than a year old she fell from my 3rd floor deck & onto the concrete below (deck railing was 4ft high & I put 3ft of “chickenwire” up; she climbed right up and over she went). My vet who happened to be on the corner ran down and got her and we did full body x-rays and such and miraculously ~ no internal injuries or broken bones…. It took me a long, long time to get over the guilt I felt for “being a bad parent” and “how could I have let this happen to her”…
Next came the dog-napping; yes we live in NYC and
these things happen. Long story, short; after 17 phone calls, detectives
from the borough president’s office involved (no police - as they would not get
involved), and $1000 later, I got my baby girl back. The detectives were
there and witnessed the incident; the “crew that dog-napped her” were
caught the following week doing the same thing in
Then came the teeth cleaning incident; the vet’s
office on the corner closed and I followed one of them and scheduled a teeth
cleaning. At 5pm when I went to pick CoCo up, she had an IV and was not
breathing on her own and she was in serious condition….. I immediately
drove 45-minutes with her IV intact and to another 24-hour hospital and there
she stayed in an oxygen tent for 3-days. They had perforated her larynx
and her little lungs had filled up with fluid. Needless to say I am not
with that vet anymore; but from this I found the original vet at the
24-hour hospital, who has been there since.
CoCo also had a torn crutiate ligament and recently was diagnosed with a Liver Shunt at 11yrs old. I've had pet health insurance since 1998 and my premium is $77 a month but they won't pay for medical costs associated with the Liver Shunt because they say it is congenital.. Regardless; I would mortgage my home if that is what it took for me to get the best of care for her. Nothing is too much or too far or too anything when it comes to my little girl.
I treasure her; I adore her and cannot imagine my life without her. She will forever be my “once in a lifetime” dog.
And with that; I offer her up to be the “pet of the month” as she is my “pet of a lifetime”.
