All about Cookie
Times are tough and many of us have less money coming in (income) but still have the same costs. This leaves most people with very little extra money to just ‘throw away’. This may cause some pet owners to become worried about how to provide for the health and well-being of their pets.
In this article we will try to help you structure your pet-related spending in a way that will keep both you and your pet in good shape. We will start by addressing the essential costs involved with keeping your pet healthy. Then we will mention some options that may help you afford these essential costs. Finally, we will look at what pet-related spending we can consider a luxury (non-essential).
The most important thing you can provide for your pet is health. Budgeting for an annual check-up and vaccinations is absolutely necessary.

We got Cookie at Christmas in 1987 and she got her name because she begged us for the shortbread cookies when we were eating them
She is very dedicated to us and we love her very much. She grew up alongside our youngest daughter Lora who is 23 and misses her an awful lot because she moved to Vancouver. Lora used to enter her in the Fair dog show and they won ribbons! Cookie loves to do tricks although she can't do as many as she used to.
She hears very little which is hard because she used to love to hear our different expressions in our voice and respond to them eagerly. She also has cataracts so she can't see as good.
Our oldest daughter Lisa and husband have a 2 year old daughter that Cookie is getting used to and they are friends (unless Mia steps on her toes or something unexpected!) Mia loves to try to pet her.
During the day Cookie loves to sit in her bed on the window seat in the front of the house watching all that goes on outside.
Cookie likes to go to bed at 9pm and cries till we go to bed because she likes to sleep at the foot of our bed.
It's hard to see your pet slowing down but it's a blessing each day to still have her companionship and love and dedication and hope it will be for many more years yet.
