A Love Letter to Coconut

I love it how you sleep with your favorite tennis ball.

I love how you run to the treat cupboard first thing in the morning, and wait for your treat, no matter how long it takes for me to get it for you.

I love how you are so smitten with neighbor Bernie, and how excited you get when his parents come home, because you know you're going to get to go play with him in the backyard.

I love how at the dog park, you always have to rush over to see what the commotion is all about, and then you always get right in the middle of it.

I love how you eat practically everything known to man if it is offered, but on occasion, you will decide that you have quite sophisticated taste, and turn your nose up at something.

I love how friendly and loving you are to all of our guests. Yes, we have to work on the excessive licking, but it is so sweet how happy you are to see our friends when they arrive. You truly love them.

I love how when I am on my laptop you can't stand that all of my attention isn't on you, so you will put your head on my lap, and nudge my hand until I stop typing.

I love how, when I am dancing to a song like "California Stars," you will jump up and dance with me while standing on your hind legs!

I love how obsessed you are with squirrels. I know that it's a bad habit, but the comedy relief that it's provided is priceless.

I love how you greet me when I get home and make me feel like the most important person in the world to you.

I love how you go to bed when I do, take naps when I do, and get up when I do.

I love it that you are such a water dog, and love swimming.

I love it how the first thing in the morning that you do is come and lick my hand. I am blessed beyond words to have you as my dog daughter, and you mean the world to me.

I love you to the ends of the earth my sweet adorable girl!

Thanks Megan! Being a dog lover yourself, you know that sometimes words just can't do justice for how much we love them!
