coco chanel:the queen

hello my fellow angel's. i want to take a moment and thank each and everyone of you who is still following along my journey as well as all those kind souls who have so generously donated money and kind words to our little pack...every cent and words mean the world to us...thank you....below is my dedication to my queen...coco chanel
when you look at the picture above i pray and hope with all my heart that this is how coco chanel and my guero are now on the rainbow bridge.....together.....coco chanel was my second rescue.....as soon as they met they were inseperable....destined to be best friends forever and one could never be without the other.......it was just unthinkable to be apart. i often wondered and dreaded how sad it was going to be when one or the other passed first. i imagened it would be so deppresing for one to have to live without the other..they had a special bond guero and coco ...a bond only two such loyal (as only dogs can be) beings can have to each other.....
this is how their bond was above ...guero always giving her kisses to take away the grumpyness and her finally accepting them with that huge gorgeous smile on her face......
coco chanel "THE QUEEN OF ALL THE FURRY UNIVERSE" as she became to be known for really took to her name. you see the reason i started calling her the queen was because she reminded me so much of the queen of hearts ... "off with their heads" is a perfect phrase to describe coco chanel's personality BOL. i have lost count of the number of victims i found not only scattered in the yard ( lizards,birds,tree rats, frogs) but also on top of my bed (rats). all with one distinct characteristic.......ALL WERE MISSING THEIR HEAD....yes sir.... you heard me right....they were all headless and only their body was always found. she would proudly display her work for me by waiting patiently by the foot of the bed next to the body of the headless rat that she so tirelessly hunted to save our household from thei evilness...tail wagging with her huge smile i could not help but to smile and hug her everytime (although i would stay away from her kisses for a while lol ). so thats why she earned her name the queen....OFF WITH THEIR HEADS I SAY !!!!!
below is the comical origin story of coco chanel which i blogged about in only about my second post. their were no comments left back then i just enjoyed being able to chronicle all the fun i had living with my furbabies.....please enjoy the queens take on her rescue.......










The name is Coco Chanel

once upon a time long ago i was living in a bad place filled with ant bites and nightmares. those mongrels did not recognize the blue blood in me and had me living in filth. one day my soon to be mommy came and saw me and rescued me.
obviously she saw the royalty she had in her hands.smart woman that mother of mine ! needless to say i have taken my rightful place as queen and ever since have ruled my kingdom. oh and i have to share it with guero who thinks he is king, and a bratty young ling called brinks who my mom calls her fat little prince.she got the fat part right. he cant be considered a prince in my book because he has absolutely no etiquette. he eats on his stomach for pittie's sake!

anyways so . . . the reason for my writing other than mommy wanting me to properly introduce myself was too state my unhappiness about a certain situation that arose about a year ago.

my mother came home with a PEASANT whom she calls Bella.now I'm all up for mommy helping out the needy people with food and water but she brought her home to LIVE!!!!! i can smell her perfume when we take turns sleeping between my Mommy's room and grammys.
my mommy says that I'm still the queen of the house and gives me lots of treats and kisses but i must say i am not very convinced about this whole situation.
I'm old and grumpy so I'm not allowed to play with her which suits me just fine.
as long as she doesn't start thinking she's princess or anything I'll let her share mommy for now.

more to come in this new development.
i must say I'm not happy mother . . . not happy at all
your highness
THE QUEEN*





!!!!! LONG LIVE THE QUEEN !!!!!!!

This was such a sweet story to read, headless rats included! We know for sure that Guero and Coco are snuggled together and are watching over Tiger, Lucky, and Shelby, as any King and Queen would!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

What a beautiful tribute. It brought a tear ~ but I do believe that Coco and Guero are together now, along with your other Bridge-Angels. They are now safe and know they were and still are very loved.
Hope this year helps you find your inner peace and calm again ... and you are more able to recall those happy times when your Bridge-Angels were with you, rather than the sudden tragic way they left for the Bridge.
Sending you all purrs, and love and comfort.

Your love for all of your fur babies is so apparent in your blog posts...I hope it brings you some solace to know that Guero and Coco will never be apart, as they watch over you from the Bridge. I think of you and your family daily.

Amber DaWeenie said...

The beautiful queen now rules the gates to the Bridge with her king, but will always be your baby, ruling your heart.

mayziegal said...

Oh, this was such a Most Wonderful and Beautiful tribute to The Queen! She sure was lucky to have you AND Guero to takes away her grumpies. Do you think you still get the grumpies across the Bridge? If so, it's prolly good Guero is there with her to lick 'em away.

And I am very much IMPRESSED with her varmint-hunting skills! Wow! You sure didn't have to worry abouts being invaded by a rat army or anything, did you?

Thank you so much for writing abouts your babies. We love reading about them and hope that it helps your heart heal a little bit remembering them.

Gentle wiggles & wags (and hugs from mom),
Mayzie

Fred said...

Oh, this was like giving my heart a hug this morning! Hope you are getting plenty of hugs these days, too. Take care.

Our QUEEN Coco Chanel. She certainly did earn her TITLE. No Intruders permitted. I am sure that she read this and felt so very much PROUD of her vigilance and ongoing campaign to keep the KINGDOM safe for all her LOYAL SUBJECTS.
Thank you fur sharing it with US.

Rae said...

what a great tribute! i love her nickname, that is so hilarious! (and gross!)

Ina in Alaska said...

Queen Coco Chanel had a most beautiful face and expressive eyes. We are very sure Guero is beside her in Heaven making sure she is not alone.

So funny about the headless "treasures" bestowed upon Mommish....


I see a little more sunshine in your writings, Sandra. Sending love xoxox

We had not read Coca Chanel's story before; thank you for running it again. We're sure she and Guero are still together, loving each other - and Shelby and the wee ones.

I have just begun reading your blog. I found you through the scottie chronicles. I am so, so sorry for your loss and the tragedy you have experienced. Yesterday, I experienced my own. My two sweet rescues got out of my yard somehow and both were hit by cars. One passed away and the other had his eye removed today and is home with us. I am devastated and can not begin to imagine you pain losing five beloved babies. Hugs to you.

THAT'S a very sweet way to remember the Queen, and oh, those two weren't separated! They are together waiting for you. Neither is missing the other! What joy in the middle of tragedy!!!

Sarge said...

All hail to the Queen! My feline sister Rosie says she is most impressed with Coco's rat catching abilities!

But seriously, Guero and his beautiful queen, Coco Channel, are together forever. They will never be separated and their bond will carry on into eternity.

Sending you lots of love and support.

Coco Chanel the Queen, what a great character. You gave her the grand life that was her destiny. It's great to read about all your pooches. You gave them so much love. Their lives ended too soon, but you gave them the best the world could offer while they were with you. Nothing can change that beautiful gift.

What a lovely tribute to the Queen. We knows she and her siblings will always live in your hearts.

Through all of your stories, it was really the Queen Coco Chanel and Guero who resonated with us the most. I always felt our pooches were your sassy brindle 'princess' and down to earth loyal dog twins. We love hearing the stories of everyone, and think of you often...
