Hero - Coco/Bart 2019
Good afternoon!!! I hope you are all doing well! I figured it was past time to give a good update. We. Love. Hero!!
We came up with the name “Hero” quite by accident. We were sitting around shouting out names. Someone said, “Did you say ‘Hero’?” The response, “No. But hey!! That’s a great name!” It just came to us!
We brought him home just before the fallout of COVID-19. Two of our boys were home for spring break from college at the US Naval Academy, and the virus would assure they did not go back to finish out their semester or summer trainings. Our youngest also entered into “distance learning” in high school. Work moved into work-from-home. Volunteerism ceased to exist. 5 peeps. 3 dogs. Life condensed to at-home.
Hero brought life and growth and smiles and happiness into our chaos. He’s a dude. A puppy, to be sure. Instant BFF to Scout. Entertainment. Work. Fun. Friend. He was and still is an absolutely welcome addition to uncertain times!! Everybody loves him!
He loves everyone, but he has especially “taken a liking” to our oldest son. They hike by the creek, daily. Enjoy early summer evenings with guitar music. Just hangout anywhere. They have an extra-special bond! Even as Hero belongs to all of us!
How many times has a dog been such a blessing to a family? Maybe every time one is brought home? Maybe it’s rare to love a dog this much? Who’s to say. But Hero is a family member that was meant to be. We all couldn’t possibly love him more!!
He’s our Hero!
On a side note, we have been using Life’s Abundance since bringing Hero home, and have switched Scout and Webster to it as well. There is such a difference! They seem more satisfied. Excellent coat. Less shedding (I think), and - excuse the gross factor - better poop (dense and much easier to clean up)! We’re sold!
Again, wishing all our best to you and your families. Keep up the great work. It certainly shows!!
All our best!
The McCabe Family
