Over the spring break holiday, Foley High School suffered the loss of a loving companion. Coupe, the resident dog (part of the veterinary and animal science department) passed away. Coupe was a loving presence for students and a best friend to the students in out Magnolia Room. Three days a week Coupe and student Amanda Barkley were blessed with being able to put a smile on those students faces. Coupe left a large paw print on FHS.
Coupe came to FHS last year as a training project for students to learn how to take care and train as well as love and respecting dogs. He was adopted from the Baldwin County Animal Control Center and from the start a born therapy animal, although he was never fully certified. He was very intelligent and had the softest, kindest eyes. From the moment he stepped on campus Coupe was able to reach students in ways no human could. Students would often wander to the Ag Shack just to see Coupe and have “Coupe time”. Coupe was some one to confide. He never met a person he didn’t like and made it a point to express his love.
Coupe will be greatly missed.
