Cookie and Coco HAVE a home..stop the e-mail already

cookie and cocoSince early this year, there’s been an e-mail floating around about two Labradors named Cookie and Coco who desperately need a home because the family lost their home to foreclosure. It began as “we’ve lost our home and need to move in two weeks” and grew to “we’re moving overseas in two weeks.” It ended with “Please, please forward these pics to all your friends.”

Yes, it’s true, Cookie and Coco needed a home. But they were placed months ago, according to Snopes, and yet the e-mail is still floating around with a frightening frequency, rending hearts wherever it goes with its heartfelt plea.

I received it two weeks ago from a friend…and this morning I received it from a rescue group. I can’t even count how many times I’ve received this post this year.

So let’s remind ourselves, in a day and age when everyone is busy and overburdened with e-mails and texts and phone calls, not to forward anything unless we’re sure it’s true. This kind of blind forwarding just wastes our time, and overall takes away some limited time that should go to pets who still need homes. Let’s help the rescue folks do their job.
