Our dog Coco is a weirdo. She doesn't freak out when we feed her like most dogs. She eats on her own time. She also doesn't come when you call her. She does it all on her own. She also will have to sleep on you. Not by our side...on us. I was lying on the floor the other morning and she just plopped on top of me with her blanket and was ready to nap. Ridiculous!
