My Name is KoKo
I am a boy dog and when my human Mum took this photo I was four months old. Mum said I looked like a cuddly golden teddy bear. Now that I am older I am white and apricot in colour.
I have cunning affectionate eyes and a sweet and innocent face. My best asset is my wonderful smile which lights up my face. My tail is long and fluffy and wags like a windscreen wiper when I am excited. If you stand behind me in summer I will brush the flies off your face for free!
Mum thought very carefully about my name and told me this story. “When I was a little girl I was very scared of dogs. Some of them chased me and scratched me with their sharp claws. I felt frightened. Now that I am older I have met some sweet and friendly dogs.
One day in 2006 Mum decided she felt OK about finding a little dog to share her life. Her main wish was that it had to be fluffy and have a lovely happy face. I fitted the bill!
I think my mum was very clever when she decided to take me into her home. How else could she have found someone who would follow her around all day, talk to her and love her endlessly? I admire Mum for facing her fears – even though it took her over forty years!
Mum thought that calling me OkOk would remind her that taking me into her home was a good decision to make. But calling out OkOk at the park might be tricky so she called me KoKo.
When Mum is being formal, she calls me “Mister K”. The kids at my park call me Kokky and one of my neighbours calls me KoKo Pops! If I am being naughty Mum calls me another name that is not nice. I won’t tell you that name.
