Cookie Dough, where’d she go? Adopted

Cookie Dough, the purebred Basset Hound wasn’t even here long enough for me to post. She arrived here because my dearest friend Ernestine Styron asked for my help. It appears that the five year-old Cookie experienced a breakup in her family, and she needed the time and attention she deserved. Cookie arrived here on Wednesday morning, and was adopted by a wonderful couple Thursday evening. That was quick!

Steve Neal and his wife Stacey scooped her up as soon as they saw her photo on PetFinder. Unfortunately, the Neal’s lost their 11 year-old Basset just two weeks ago, and when they saw Cookie… well, it was just meant to be.

So horray for the dogs that may not run as fast as the Border Collies, may not be as tall as the German Shepherd, or may not have the wit of the Aussie. Cookie Dough is being loved just as much as those other dogs are being loved!

When I posted her photos on Facebook, our followers went nuts with their crazy comments, especially the comments about her ears! Cookie gave us a very fun day to share!

Steve’s first email to me after they brought cookie home:

“her tail is wagging now!”

A few moments later, he reported,

“Cookie had a good night, she slept and snored all night!”

The Neals’ are really serious about their Basset, I was barely awake this morning when my vet called me asking me to fax her paperwork… They didn’t waste any time having her checked out from head to toe!

    We have since learned that Cookie Dough had serious bladder stones and underwent a successful surgery. She will be on antibiodics and special food for a while until she recovers.
