If dogs had tears, then there would be rain here in the Philippines.
He was, is and will always be our favorite Beagle. I must admit, even I, would sometimes feel a little jealous of manang's grave interest in him and his brother, Barley. I don't feel that now. Cocoa is like the brother I never had. He was the beagle my hooman sister never had. He was that wonderful blog buddy that would always make mine, Poopie's and my manang's day complete. Now he is gone and we miss him so so much.
To our friend Barley, we know busy schedules prevented you from blogging all these times, but now that you finally did, we wished it was otherwise or maybe, it was under different circumstances. Our hearts break as we write this. If only we can encapsulate in so many sentences how much you guys mean to us.
We love you both so much and our hearts break for you and your family. Good bye our darling friend, Cocoa. We missed you and we will continue to miss you everyday. Continue to watch over Barley and your mum from the Rainbow Bridge. We know that they really miss you a lot.
Farewell and we hope and pray that you will truly be happy. Thank you for sharing your life with us.
Missing you always,
Aki, Poopie and family
