Okay, the server seeems to be taking the day off. The photo just went *poof*, and it will not allow editing. I'll have to send off a message to headquarters...

She has been an evepresent part of our lives, keeping us out of trouble, watching our home and belongings, and being a constant companion when we were sick or hurt. When I was recovering from my injuries earlier this year, she never left my side, and woe to anyone that tried to mess with me.
Of everything that has happened to us over the course of the last year, this seems like the worst. I feel like crap.
Here is a picture I took of Cookie just yesterday, after we had played fetch. She was lying in her bed with one of her (hundreds of) toys.
As the owner of four dogs, I know well how empty things are right now. I wish there was something I could do or say to make it better. Academicly we all knwo that neither we nor our pets are immortal, but emotionally none of us accept that fact. Every Xmass starting next year you will think of her at this time of the year, and she will make you smile again, they never really leave.

You will spend several weeks trying to remember that Cookie is not right there with you. My favorite show dog died in 1981, to this day I cannot go visit his grave. I also kept trying to follow the regular schedule of feeding, letting him out, etc.... only to remember he wasn't there. He was my friend, we loved each other. I have never "replaced" him; however, I have allowed so many animals into my heart over the years that I know he's happy with me. I bred and showed dogs for many years, never having just a rescued animal on the property. Now...I have 6 rescued cats and 4 rescued dogs. Only one pure-bred in the lot. If you know anything about dog show folks, that's really something. When you can, give another animal or two a chance at the life Cookie loved. She will direct them your way.

Early photos

Here are some photos I was able to scan of Cookie when she was a 1 pound puppy. When she was really little, we had to place a phone book in front of her dish so she would be able to reach her food and water. Here she has a stuffed penguin by the neck, demonstrating her hunting prowess. All the stuffed animals trembled in fear when she was on the prowl...
