Coco is home.
When the 10-year-old Beagle mix was brought to the Animal Emergency and Referral Center in Flowood, veterinarians promised to fight for her life, but the prognosis was iffy.
She was wagging her tail and wanted to be a part of things, but she had sustained severe airway burns in a house fire.
The dog had already been through a miracle by most standards -- after knocking down the fully-involved Easter morning blaze at 203 Lotus Drive, Reservoir firefighters had found her still alive under a bunk bed and pulled her from the home. For anything to live through that kind of fire is almost unbelievable. Firefighters administered oxygen to CoCo.
