September 20 through 26 is National Dog Week – are you planing anything special to celebrate your beloved pup? For 10 years, this dog has been with me through it all from graduating college, getting married, moving 5 times & having babies! This is also the same animal who doesn’t believe she’s a dog. Why do I love her? Oh let me count the ways… #1 – I love that she has a perma-smile! To sum it up she’s amazing and possibly one of the best friends I’ve ever had in my life. How can that silly smile of hers not crack you up on your worst day? Cookie is no stranger to uniqueness – after all, she is a hairless Chinese Crested, just like the ones featured in films like how to lose a guy in 10 days and 102 Dalmations.. With this dog, it’s either love at first sight or you insist they’re the ugliest dog ever.
#2 She’s smart as a whip! So while I was staging a photo for this very post, there was alot of plastic bag crinkling and package rattling. It’s clear that she knows the precise sound of a dog treat bag, because it was not long before she was blatantly howling asking for something. It’s almost as if she knew exactly what was going on up above her! Can’t fool this girl – she’s one smart Cookie!
#3 She’s a prissy girly-girl that loves a good photo shoot. Here she is pictured with her BFF – a.k.a “the tomato”. She and this tomato bean bag go way back to her puppy years, and it’s literally the only toy she will play with. She loves tossing it around and catching it and I believe its because it satisfies her breed’s desire to hunt rats.
#4 She’s still as playful as she was 10 years ago when she was a puppy. Tomato play time can get pretty intense around here! At 10 years old, this dog does pretty well for an old girl!
5. She gets so excited for mealtime, circles 1000 times and chows it down as if the bowl were about to sprout legs and run away. She loves to eat Beneful and it just so happens that you can grab a coupon to Save $3 on Beneful (13 lb or greater size bag) so you can give your dog more of what they love.
The nice folks at Beneful sent me a fun grab bag filled with goodies for Cookie, and you can win one too! All you have to do is post a picture of your dog BFF and use the hashtags #NationalDogWeek and #FriendsWithBeneful to be elligible. learn more & good Luck!
