Cookie 1998-2007

Cookie, our trained attack Peek-A-Poo, died this morning just before we were to get ready to go to work. She has been a faithful companion and watchdog ever since we got her a a puppy as a companion for my father after the loss of my mother. She would have been 9 Christmas day.
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.

I'm sorry for your loss. It's never easy losing a member of the family. Rest in peace Cookie.

Oh, Terry, I am SO sorry! What a sad thing to have happen. I know she had a great and happy life with you and your family and never wanted for anything. Lots of hugs and strength to you and Marie!

It sounds like you were lucky to have shared in each other's lives. Here's hoping that soon you will only remember the best of times!

I know that our words do little to ease the pain that you feel. The unconditional love that cookie had for you both will always be a treasured memory. I am sure that Cookie would want you to remember her with Joy.

There's not much that we can say is there? I'm sorry seems too little and it is, but I am.
Last month we lost our 10 year old Boxer and on some level I can relate to what you're going through, but Cookie has been with you through thick and thin and your situation is unique. Recall your good times with her!
