I hope TA will allow me to post this here, as many regulars to PV who stay or spend time on the southside know Coco, a wonderful, sweet dog that wandered the Los Muertos area for many years, taken care of by residents and tourists alike. He has been in failing health for some time and unfortunately today, he passed onto that Rainbow Bridge and no longer struggles to breath or feels pain in his old body.
With permission of Heather Wilson in PV, I'm posting her words from Facebook.
"With the vet offering no hope and Coco unable to stand or even focus, our dear 12-year-old community mascot was put to sleep tonight about 7:30, very tenderly in the Lazaro Cardenas Park he loved.
His original mom, Rita Kunz, and good friend Cathy Gordon (Sirena's mom), held him and talked to him to the end. It is SO SAD to lose him, but his death could not have been more peaceful. RIP dear Negro, Blackie, Ben, Ruffus, Rollo... We will NEVER forget you!"
Some on this board asked about Coco a while back and I wanted to share this sad update. RIP Sweet Coco.
