Cookie was adopted in April, 2017 and is now known as Zoe. Here she is with her new familiy!

"C" is for Cookie and that's good enough for me...

This little girl is sweetness x 10! Quiet and loving. Polite and sits right down for pets. When the chow bowl comes out she is quite a chow hound! Acts like she has never see a dish of food. I am going to give her the slow-go bowl for her dinner tonight and see if that slows her down a bit.

Cookie is interested in the home dogs, but having a belly full of stitches (recent spay) I decided to keep her separate from my big bouncy boy so she doesn't get hurt. I think they would be great buddies otherwise. He gives her little kisses through the room dividers.

She met my sister's dog T-Bone tonight with no problems what so ever! I did not realize he was coming to visit with the kids and I took Cookie out on leash to meet them. As he rounded the car, she lit up like a birthday cake and greeted him like a champ!

I think is is plenty safe to say that she is "good with kids". I would caution a new family with very young kids as she is still young herself and has enough puppy left in her that she is still a nibbler and we all know that kids arms and legs are just right for the nibbling! At one point this evening Carly (the 6yo) was on the floor with Cookie petting her. Cookie turned to her and grabbed hold of Carly's knee with a soft mouth and looked at me out of the corner of here eye as if to say Nee-ner, Nee-ner. I gave her a verbal correction and she let go immediately. Cookie was not trying to hurt Carly, just puppy mouth grabby. And to be fair, a bony little 6yo knee sticking out in space does look incredibly like a ball...

She found the toy box straight off and picked out her favorite toy to play with, the little red feetsy-ball. She carried it around the house for quite a while by its little half-chewed foot for a long time last night, tail wagging all the time.

She is much lower on the energy scale than I am used to having around here. Kind of nice I must admit! I think I could get used to having the couch-potato type dog for a while.

Cookie is a catch for any family looking for a companion level dog. She will be great fun in an obedience class and her affection is off the charts! Ohhhh! That face! Then she turns on the charm and instantly worms her way into your heart... Then she bounces around ever so delicately with a toy in her chompers and you can't help to smile. THEN she offers her sweet kisses just in case she has not warmed your heart enough yet!
