Hiking in northeast Georgia can make a dog thirsty. Cocoa gets a drink after walking with Donna and others up the path. Wow, what a day she had! A park ranger at Anna Ruby Falls let her sniff several skins from local “critters.” Her favorite sniff was that of a possum and not the raccoon.

When Cocoa was a baby, her trainer Xalina (Dog School 101) called her a little monkey. Looking at this photo, I can understand how she came to that conclusion.

She’s such a good dog and so much fun to be with. Someone wrote: “A dog is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.” – Unknown
