We received a letter from WSU College of Veterinary Medicine that our vet
Dr. Rebecca Rogers had made a donation in Cookie’s name. Dr. Rogers has been
our vet since we move to Washington in 2003. We thank her very much for
being so wonderful with Cookie and all of our dogs, and for her kind
gesture, and we also thank all the techs that knew Cookie and were so nice
to her in her many visits.”
Our Cookie passed away due to lymphoma. She was treated with chemotherapy
but relapsed. She really was a trooper and a fighter. She battled the
disease for 6 months and we were lucky to be able to have her with us for a
little longer. And although, her death was unavoidable, we were never
prepared for the emptiness and the pain that it has caused on us.
I fell in love with her the moment my roommate brought her to my house in
Miami, Florida. Her owner couldn’t keep her and needed a nice home to live.
She was a year old and cute as can be. She was an unusual Beagle, she didn’t
bark that much and didn’t get into trouble. Her only weakness was food, and
as a typical Beagle that nose never stopped. She was a very sweet and very
special girl. She loved to cuddle, putting her little nose in your neck with
that warmth breathing; it was so comforting. I could not foresee the tons of
happiness she will bring into my life.
After I met my future husband, we decided to move to Oregon and in the way
through Las Vegas; we got married with Cookie and my other 2 doggies, Ginger
and Hershey, as our witnesses. It was a great trip, Cookie got to travel
3000 miles and got to know a lot of new places and smelled a whole bunch of
new scents. Her new life in the NW allowed her to enjoy the outdoors a lot,
and every time we went on a camping trip she loved to go exploring. John
says she also loved to watch “Sci Fi” with him, but she told me she didn’t
but daddy had always something to eat near him J
We would like to also thank Dr Luminita Sarbu and her team of technicians at
the Veterinary Specialty Center in Lynnwood. We were so lucky to have found
them to be the ones to treat Cookie with her lymphoma. Their kindness and
compassion helped us to go through the treatment and later to let her rest.
Cookie will be in our hearts forever. We loved her so much and she in return
gave us lots of years of happiness and unforgettable memories. We had to let
her rest but her memories will keep her alive and close to us always. The
bond we formed will never go away.
