April, 2012 the cutest little bundle of joy was welcomed into the Oldham family. We adopted her from our local animal shelter. She is half lab, and half pit bull. I named her Coco Maria Oldham. She brings so much joy into my life, I love her with all of my heart. Whenever I am sick, which can be quite often, she truly watches over me. She lays right beside me in the bed, or in my recliner. Never leaves my side When I get up to go to the bathroom, or kitchen, she walks right beside me. I call her nurse goodbody, lol She would never hurt anyone, bless her heart, she has a nervous problem. When she hears a lawnmower, weed eater, any kind of siren, fire crackers, thunder, or rain, she freaks out!! She hides under the bed, in the closet, or in the bathroom, beside the commode. The vet recently put her on Xanax. Poor baby. Why am I writing about my dog? Because she is definitely my faithful companion. She has helped me deal with my stress, and my health. She brings joy and laughter into my life, which is very good for the soul She sleeps in the bed with me and Eddie, right beside me, we share the same pillow. I will never forget the night I attempted suicide. Eddie was sleeping, but Coco was wide awake. She kept licking me, and moaning. Those big, beautiful brown eyes of hers, kept staring me right in the face. I believe with all of my heart, that she knew something was wrong, and she wanted it to stop. God has blessed me in so many ways, and one of those great blessings is my fur baby Coco. Thank You Lord.
