    Smart Coco. I second the motion!

    Weston is going to be in “Morgan”town attending WVU…so cool! I had to go there a few times for job fairs since I work for the State of WV. ** Reputation of couch burnings during football season up there. ** Be good and study hard Weston! ** Is the girl friend attending WVU also?

    Coco is such a beautiful dog!
