Coco is in heat right now, which is a bit of a nuisance, but it will all pass relatively quickly.
However, she is taking a keen interest in other dogs, and she seems to have developed a bit of a crush on Bonnie Wren’s bulldog, “Mojo.”
Coco likes Mojo’s style, because not only does he outperform airport security in preventing dangerous intruders, but he’s become an expert at home remodeling:

However, I should point out that Coco is a bit jealous of Clara.
As to whether their pups would have any future, arguably they would. Both Coco and Mojo are listed bulldog breeds, and I think a svelte and slim female pit bull might provide just the right combination of genes to please a lot of people. The Olde English Bulldog was arrived at by crisscrossing the related breeds, with the goal of restoring the original bulldog to a healthier, more robust state.

Various genetic crosses have been used in carefully and thoughtfully planned breeding programs to obtain this goal. The foundation of most of today’s Olde English Bulldogges can be traced to English Bulldog, American Bulldog, APBT and Mastiff.
These dogs were used very selectively in various combinations to obtain the desired physical and mental traits of the original Olde English Bulldogge. The result has been a good looking Bulldogge of great athletic ability that is much healthier and physically fit without most or all of the problems that plague today’s modern English Bulldogs. The goal of all Olde English Bulldogge breeders should be to produce genetically healthier Bulldogges that are free breathers, free breeders, and free whelpers.

The pups would be registerable, but it would take enormous persistence and diligence to come up with a line consistently meeting the Olde English Bulldog standard, and this is just Coco’s crush, not a serious proposal for an arranged marriage.
Interestingly, “Mojococo” and “Cocomojo” have both been spoken for as names, with the latter being considerably more popular than the former.
Uh oh! I better not let Coco see this picture of Mojo, lest her hopes for bulldog breeding be dashed!
But love is another matter. Coco loves her friends for who they are, and it need not be physical. As regular readers may remember, she has an ongoing platonic relationship with Tristan the Shih-Tzu. (That it’s platonic is probably good. For starters, what would you call a cross between a pit bull and a Shih-tzu? And the breeds are not related at all. Do I really need to spend my time building a better “bull shiht”?)
I doubt there’s much of moral lesson for Coco here, as she’s already learned from Tristan that not all males are available, or even physically interested.
(But Coco is in heat, so I’ll try to break it to her as gently as I can.)
