Meco (Part 2)

More on Meco, Chet’s March friend, from Meco’s human companions:


FOOD:  No more need be said on that subject.

LEARNING:   He loves his classes– whether they be obedience, agility, or his especial favorite, scent work. He was such a bright and happy little show off in his first obedience classes that his trainer encouraged my sister and me to enter him in Rally and Obedience dog show  trials. It takes a lot of bravery (for humans!) to get out in that ring in front of people and judges. Meco sparkles and shows off!  Meco and His 2 Gals have 3 titles in Rally, 1 in Obedience, and 2 in Tricks. Looking very forward to trials in scent work– Meco loves this even more than food. Also working on a Canine Freestyle piece. Our song is going to be Low Rider by War. We are learnin’ some cooooool moves.

SLEEPING:   Meco loves cuddling and sleeping. I’ll be up for half an hour sometimes before he leaves the bed and honors me with his presence. His greetings are wonderful. He greets you by getting into a U shape and trying to meld with your knees while wiggling around madly. He has a deep baritone voice and does moany-groans and piggy grunts when being petted in the morning. He’s only 18# and has a huge deep bark. We think he was a famous opera singer in a past life. Italian. Total hedonist. Bit of a Casanova.

PLAYING:   Meco rolls around on the floor on his back, flapping his legs and feet and squeaking his toy madly. I have never seen another dog play the way he does. We look on in sheer amazement. And the bigger the toy the better.

Rain and damp lawns. And that impertinent ocean better not even think about touching his toes!  He can be a diva and a drama queen.

The Dude loves going to the beach and exploring it. He’ll go right up to the water’s edge and then mince away as the wave begins getting close to his feet. We always think of Hercule Poirot when he does this. And quite the detective he can be. One day he began digging furiously in the sand and we thought he might be after a crab. He dug down about a foot and brought out peanut shells. The Dude is crazy in love with peanut butter. The nose knows!

So there are a few facts about The Amazing Meco. He’s our first dog. He will always be the most remarkable. He’s extraordinary!

    Good morning, HOH!

    Loving the Meco story! He should have his own book! Wouldn’t it be interesting if Meco and Chet could meet!

    Still lots of people without power in the county. Thousands are still without power from last Friday’s storm.

    RIO! Sob! I hope now that your Friend will have some time off, she can make a full recovery!

    A good Friday to all!

    I’m laughing at the comparison with the Hercule Poirot “mincing” walk.

    Good morning all.

    Good morning all.

    Congratulations to Meco’s human for taking him to Rally and Obedience Trials and to Meco for doing so well. If he can find a long lost peanut under a foot of sand he will do great at the scent trial. I would love to see the Canine Freestyle routine.
    Thanks for sharing the Amazing Meco with us!

    I am in talks with the Thieves! to procure Belle Starr a baby animal of her very own, or I’m going to be in a very bad mood. I woke from my early afternoon nap to Belle Starr licking my ears and mohawk. Has this ever happened to youse?

    Nigel, I, Tinker Belle, frequently lick mom’s head at night. Learned this from Darah Thea who licks the DDD’s head each evening. We think they love 💕 it.
