My name is CoCo the Cow and I live in Port Heiden, Alaska. When I told my family (back in Anchorage, Alaska) that I was leaving the city ranch life to pursue my dream of becoming a village farm icon, they thought I was crazy.
“CoCo, child,” my mother pleaded, “you’re just a gentle cow from the city, why go out to the sticks?! You’ll be so far away from us!” While she had a point – I am a gentle being – it was plain that neither mother nor the rest of my family understood this desire for adventure and wide open spaces.
Well, maybe they understood, but it was clear they didn’t accept the longing I felt to explore and expand my world. I (occasionally) miss (some of) them. Aw heck, I even miss Papa John’s Pizza every now and then. And sushi too. Oh, and 3D movies.

But there’s one thing I can’t stand about my new home…these jerkfaces:
