Memories of Cookie
In honor of Cookie:

With a heavy heart Nick and I would like to share the sad news that Cookie passed away early this morning (Oct. 2). This past Thursday she went back to the vet specialist because she just wasn't feeling like herself. We found out her kidney count was declining, she had an IV for 48 hours, then her kidney count rapidly improved and she came home yesterday (Oct. 1). We had a good day together; a walk, treats, and loving on her. While we getting ready for bed and Cookie was trying to throw-up but couldn't. We rushed her to the emergency vets and took x-rays. The x-rays showed her body was shutting down; fluid in lungs, enlarged heart, and other issues (it was the perfect storm). Nick and I were at her side as she crossed the rainbow bridge. We told her that we loved her and she was our good girl. We are comforted knowing that we did everything possible for her. We knew she felt loved over the 4 years we had her and gave the best life possible.

Cookie had a "Cinderella" start in life. In the spring of 2012, she was found on the streets by a car auction house in Houston. The workers coaxed her in their building and fed her danishes and cookies out of the vending machine (and that's how she got her name Cookie). She was then turned over to the Houston Sheltie Sanctuary to treat her medical needs and eventually find her forever home. During that time I wanted another sheltie and I saw her picture on the website and fell in love. Through the years Cookie still kept a close relationship with her foster mom Nancy Holcomb​, Cookie loved her dearly.

My heart is broken. Cookie was truly my dog; my little girl, she followed me everywhere, and my constant companion. She loved to sing, spin around in her sheltie circles, was always happy to see Nick and I when we came home. I still remember the day we brought her home so vividly in my mind.

We tried different dog sports and found her love for nosework and she was awesome at it. She had such a special nose. She passed her odor test last fall and I was hoping this up-coming year to start going to trails.

Cookie was special to Nick and I and we cannot expressed how much we loved her. Our home and hearts feels empty without her.
