Well our new family member has fit right in. Cookie is officially ours!

We just love her.

My friends D & her husband C have been working with a group, SAFE house for fo
ur years. They are foster parents for dogs until they find homes.

In the entire time, D has never asked me to adopt a dog until two weeks ago.

She said she had the perfect dog for us.

Cookie is a Terri mix and is the sweetest thing.

One thing that sold us was she is already house broken. That was a HUGE plus since we have new carpet.

Cookie is also crate trained. When I walk her, she will only walk on my left side. She doesn't bark, bite, jump, nothing, nada!

She will sit and let me pet her for hours and she loves to snuggle under the covers.

D was right, she is perfect for our family.

And I hate to get this wrong, so D if I do, correct me please.

Cookie came from a good home where her owner had fallen ill and could no longer take care of her and her other dogs. Cookie's other mother I think also worked with SAFE house at one time and she knew they would find a good home for her.

And guess what they did!

Another plus... D's oldest daughter C is a vet. and she gave her a complete check and she is fine, great health.

Thanks C!

And as you can tell, Cookie has found her spot in our house.

how cute! :)

i've heard that there are a lot of familys that can't take care of dogs any more due to the economy, so the shelters are getting full. :(
