    Default R.I.P. Cookie

    It is with great sadness that Cookie my Chocolate Lab has passed away.
    She has been poorly for a number of weeks now with a large mass cell tumour on her side.
    But she finally came to the point that it was far kinder and fair to her to put her to sleep.
    It was done sensitively and kindly by the vets, with me there. Though upsetting it was for the best.
    So, rather than reflect on the sadness here are a few photo's of her over the years I have had the honour of being her pal.
    Poor Faye my Black Lab is lost without her and keeps looking around the house.
    I'm keeping Faye pacified with extra love, attention and of course biscuits.











    Always remembered, she was a fantastic pal and companion, though by hell could she be strong willed and obstinate.
    Take care Cookie and catch up sometime in the future.

    Very Sad Andy. I had to do that to my lab many years ago. I was broken-hearted as had him for 14 years, but he had cancer too.. He had a chocolate son interestingly.

    Hope you feel better soon as I do your other dog.
    Regards,

    My sympathies - losing a loved one of any kind is a difficult time.

    Cheers for your thoughts guys, much appreciated.
    Cookie was 12 years old, I'd had her for 8 years.
    She was originally a rescue, along with her pal Faye.
    She was, as all dogs are. Characters in her own right. Great fun to be around.
    I have Faye at my feet looking at me. She probably just wants her tea

    not much comfort i know but you can console yourself to a small degree by knowing you did the right thing,its the worst thing about owning pets and its something i dread.
    she'll be happy and at peace at the rainbow bridge.

    Lovely looking dog, Andy.

    I'm sure you had great times together - lots to remember.
    Apart from my years at college I've always had pets. Life would be considerably diminished without them.
