Cookie got a hair cut.

Poor thing doesn't even look like the same dog! We tried to do it ourselves, but our trimmer wasn't working properly so I called all around and made her an appointment for Wednesday.
She had an appoinment yesterday for the vet to get her rabies vaccination and they do grooming there too and just happened to have an opening. We quickly jumped on it since she was so matted up. Well they took all of her hair away. Last night she even looked pink because of having so little hair left. Having no hair has turned her into a little lap dog because she is so cold. We'll have to get her a sweater soon.

She is already spoiled rotten. She loves to go for car rides and goes with us to take Kaitlyn to school. Since we car pool it is pretty funny to see 4 kids, me and cookie all pull up for school in my little Saturn. But it is a very short distance so I don't mind.
Other news besides Cookie. My brother in law's automotive shop just opened. He and his family have put in alot of hard hours to get it off the ground and we are so proud of you guys! We wish you all the best on your new adventure!

She is adorable. So much reminds me of The Ruffles who came to us from your family. Dad and I are looking forward to having Cookie join us in our next home, which will be a nice rest home you pick for us, she will fit right next to us in our wheels chairs. I am glad you got her, every boy needs a dog before they are 60 years old. dad sure is enjoying his Baby.....love you guys

Even with the hair cut Cookies is still a cute dog. I had a Pekingese and I knwo how fast their hair can get matted and how hard it is to get the matts out. I think you did the right thing by getting her shaved and letting a new coat grom in. I am so happy that Cookie has settled into your family in a short amount of time. Love the pictures

Poor thing! Get that girl a sweater NOW!! :) That's great that they were able to do her grooming the same time and day!

Poor little Cookie - I hope you've found a sweater for her. (Although she looks pretty content on Kaitlyn's lap!)

Poor Cookie! Hope she's got a warm sweater now but I don't think she'll have a hard time keeping warm with laps to sit in!

Cookie is just adorable! I'm sure the kids are just loving the daylights out of her. She is probably loving all the attention too. Cookie one lucky doggie to have y'all for a family. You're pictures are priceless!
