Some of you may remember Coco, one of our black beauties. Coco was with us in May of this year, waiting for her forever home. When Coco was staying with us, we knew she would make a family very happy one day. At the kennels, she was always friendly and cheerful and a real pleasure to be around. We took her to the Three Counties Show in Malvern, and it was there that she met what would be her forever family, who took her home in June.
We were really pleased to hear how she was getting on recently, and it was such a lovely letter, we thought we’d share it with you all.
“We’ve just celebrated our first Christmas with Coco and wanted to share with you the joy she has brought into our lives.
We collected Coco from you in June and after some sleepless nights she eventually settled herself into our household. Creating a safe comfy crate for her in our house was the key for settling her at night. Slowly she gained confidence and started to approach us for comfort and affection. Equally she is loved by our children and has never been a cause for concern with our cat. She enjoyed her first holiday with us in Cornwall, running on the beach (well as fast as we could run with her on the lead!). She won 6th place at a GRWE fundraising event for the most beautiful eyes and recently we took her for a few days in a log cabin in the Forest of Dean. It has been a joy to watch her learn her new life and see her tail wagging. She still has her nervous moments with new people and over inquisitive dogs but has never ever shown a flicker of aggression. We all wish to thank you for bringing Coco into our lives and opening our eyes to this wonderful breed. We will continue to support RGT and GRWE events and spread the word of how rewarding it is to home a greyhound.”
