Upon reading the article written regarding the Cooks, I got very upset, very mad, thinking “who are these awful people” running this 55+ mobile home park? What is wrong with them? I pray to God that they or a loved one never has to go through the medical issues Mr. & Mrs. Cook are going through. Well, maybe I do… How does the saying go? Payback is a b****!!
My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting the Cooks the day they adopted their little dog. It was on Saturday, December 11, 2009. We happened to be at the same facility in Sanford, adopting a dog as well. Actually, we adopted one of Lucy’s siblings. My husband and I had picked our pup out first. When the Cooks arrived and came into the room where the puppies were located, the facial expressions they had were absolutely precious. Michael had a conversation with the Cooks while I was filling out paperwork. I remember it like it was yesterday. Mrs. Cook looked as though she was going to cry she was so happy. They were having a hard time trying to decide which “new baby” they wanted. Words cannot describe the joy they were feeling and the smiles on their faces. I know the joy they are experiencing now – my baby Fergie make me smile every time I look at her.
Although the article written makes me sad for the Cooks, it makes me even more mad at the park management. Hopefully the article promises bad publicity for the mobile home park, and they will decide to do the “right” thing. I am simply appalled with the management of this place. I know rules are made for reasons, but they are also make to be broken… and in this case, the rules should be broken. The Cooks should be able to keep Lucy and stay at the park.
