When Cookie was a puppy a family had bought her from a local breeder
with, as I was told, intentions of breeding her. But when their other
GSD did not take well to Cookie and bullied her around, they decided to
resell her. A man that would one day become my stepdad bought her and
when my mother married this man I took to Cookie right away. She bonded
with me and we've been friends ever since. This happened nearly a decade
Unfortunately, after Cookie's having incontinence for more than three years, it got to
much for us to handle. Cookie was put to sleep March 9th, 2011 and
will be greatly missed. She will always have a special place in my
heart. At a time when I didn't have a dog, and desperately wanted one,
God gave her to me, and when I didn't have many friends she was a friend
to me. We've shared many wonderful years together and even though
sometimes I wasn't the best owner to her, she remained loyal to me.
Right up to the end. Job 1:21 B KJV: "the LORD gave, and the LORD hath
taken away; blessed be the name of the LORD."
