Cocoa gets to kick this post off since she posed for a photo while receiving a set of instructions about meeting my friend BJ’s dog for the first time. Her list included no “Mommying,” which means no pushing, nudging, or “growling” the other dog into submission. She also was asked to limit her puppy kisses to a small handful. Since she loves to meet new people—forget the dogs—and totally enjoys giving plenty of kisses.

Here’s proof of what I just wrote: Cocoa is going for BJ while Chip is rushing her dog.

Too cute. I’ve never seen this type of look on Chip’s face before. Dogs checking one another out.

And then there was the doggy door. He’s never seen one of these before! BJ told me that her puppy eats rotisserie chicken from Costco—only in Atlanta!
