7 years ago I read an ad in the local paper for a free pit bull, when I went to look at the dog I was introduced to my new best friend Coco Bean.
After taking her to the vet for a checkup I learned she had been used for breeding and abused bad. She was so happy to have a family to love her and when my fiance and his children joined our family she was in her glory. I have never seen someone so happy.
Every time we tilled the garden she had to roll in the cool soil, loved to cuddle under blankets and make sure the kiddos faces were clean.
Coco developed cancer and crossed the rainbow bridge this morning, my heart feels like a giant hole is in it.
I know that one day she will be in my arms again and I like to think that she is basking in the sunshine with grandma.
