An Update on Koko

09 Feb

It has been a while now , just a week before Xmas since we adopted Koko from the Animal Rescue shelter namely ‘TAKIS SHELTER’, whom I first blogged about. So I thought my fellow bloggers would like to see how he has settled down. considering he was quite scared when we first brought him into the house.  He was shaking and looking so worried. He was hunching himself into a ball  and backing away from wherever we wanted him to go. However, it did not take long for Koko to get used to our routine, and likewise us to get used to his  adoring little ways.  I swear animals can tell the time, well food time anyway, and of course walk times Koko also loves his own space such as, every now and again he will suddenly decide to go and sit under one of our dining room chairs as there is quite a space underneath the actual seat, so we believe he thinks it’s his own little kennel. ‘doggie thoughts’ .  He is also good on the lead, but we have to find a safe place to be able to let him off the lead and have a good run around even though we have a garden.

Koko is a very intelligent and obedient animal . He sits when he is told ” without any treats ” and lets us know in good time when he wishes to GO  you know  GO !  so you see he is no trouble whatsoever.  The one thing Koko really loves is his very own bed, and again  11-0’clock or thereabouts he is nudging me and wagging his tail , ‘its his bedtime’.  where he jumps into it so hard that it goes sailing down the hallway with him in it. I think he does that purposely for the ride, settles down for the night and we don’t hear a peep from him until the next morning when of course its food time, after which its play time. Koko shares his affection between both John and I and as you can gather he receives lots of TLC from us so Koko is one happy little dog and we are happy to have him, we love him to bits.  See photo’s below.

    Koko is gorgeous Rita. I am so happy for him that he has you & John to love him. You are both very special people. I so admire Takis. He’s the guy who used to look after Sandy. Still miss my little Sandy. Xx

    Koko is adorable! And I can tell he is happily spoiled. How I envy you that love you share for a beloved friend.

      You are correct Dora. Koko is getting spoilt ! but he does not take advantage of it. (yet). He is a very placid dog and obedient. Glad you enjoyed reading this post.

    He rules your life, you know. As Honey does ours. We have no need of clocks – her brain is minute-perfect in recalling mealtimes, walk times, and available slots for games. She also knows the theme tunes for most of our favourite TV programmes, and will react appropriately when she hears them. The end of ‘Doctors’ heralds walk time, for example. And you can’t ignore her. Honey does not like being ignored.

    Hi Frederick, Honey sounds adorable and obviously knows YOUR routine. On the other hand I always make Koko wait for me to go first wherever I am going, say upstairs or outside, or into the garden to prove I am the boss,he only does that if I remember to say WAIT ! I also give him his meal when I have dished ours up first ,he knows to WAIT for his. However he does insist that we walk him when he asks and he receives plenty of TLC. Thanks for reading Frederick, and your nice comments.
