Coco is the toast of the town

01 Mar 2011

Coco is the toast of the town Image

Barely bigger than her owner’s hands, 10-week-old puppy Coco was the toast of Docklands on February 20.

The toy poodle was the centre of attention as proud owners Sally Hewitt and Bill McDonald hosted an afternoon party to show off their new pet.

Doggy biscuits were provided for the four-legged guests, while the humans enjoyed champagne and other refreshments.

For Sally and Bill, taking on another dog has been a big step.  Their beloved Peaches passed away two years ago and it has taken this time for their feelings of loss to subside sufficiently.

Sally said she was encouraged back into dog ownership by Lea and Paul O’Halloran who alerted her that Coco was available.  Coco is a sister to Mia, the O’Hallorans’ toy poodle who was featured in Docklands News’ Pets Corner column late last year.

“She’s absolutely stunning,” a clearly smitten Sally said. 

“We’re calling her Coco because she is the peak of elegance and class.”
