Coco Noir — The Dog, The Legend…

Now, I have often been asked what Coco looks like — obviously, he is a black pug — but dogs faces can be as varied as our own, so what exactly does he look like? Well, there are many sides to Coco… Until Bella took over caring for him he was, I am afraid to say, rather a spoilt little dog. Carla and Emerald fed him sugary treats throughout the day and he didn’t get as much exercise as he should. Coco quite liked this way of life — he even, I am shocked to say, quite liked wearing those little doggy outfits — especially in the winter (well, it does get pretty cold in Manhattan in the winter). However, after Bella saved Coco from the evil Doc Gutson (remember she tried to electrocute him and dangled him off the balcony?) Coco became Bella’s dog and now likes going with Bella to the skatepark and is happy with fewer cookies. I like to think that Coco is a healthier, happier dog since all those shenanigans in ‘The Secret Formula‘. I know some of Coco’s fans here in Australia are working on some Coco artwork that I will post when I receive but in the meantime…here is a picture of how I imagine Coco looked as he was being dangled over the Manhattan streets… (great pic accredited to andyonflickr!)
