Welcome to Life with Cocoa

The blog Life with Cocoa is about life with a new puppy in the house. Puppies are cute, cuddley, sweet, and loveable. However, they are also messy, don't listen very well, eat things they aren't supposed to (but then again even full grown dogs eat things that they aren't supposed too), and the list goes on and on.

Recently my family found out that my sister Kate ( my sisters name has been changed for privacy reasons) has cancer. We were all shocked by the news, but my sister at eleven years old seemed to take the news a lot better than the rest of us which to me was a little surprising, because she is the one that is fighting this terrible illness that no person should ever have to experience. She had to stop playing sports which I know was very hard for her because she plays sports all year long, but once again she surprised me by not complaining, but taking everything all in stride.

So, for christmas our family got her a puppy. She had been asking our parents for one for the past couple of years, and they finally gave her one becaus of how brave she was being. This is how Cocoa came to be a part of my family.

  1. Wow, Ren. My best to your courageous sister. She sounds like quite an amazing person.

    I also can relate to the negotiations one goes through with young dogs, as my wife and I recently adopted two (at the time) eight-month-old pups. We have fewer whole blankets, rugs, and pillows than we once had!
