Cookie Chronicles

Long way home


Karen Gregutt

Paul Gregutt welcomed Cookie, the terrier/poodle/chihuahua mixed breed dog, into his home and his heart. Cookie's transformation from half-frozen, unwashed rescue to the beautiful, blonde rescuer some liken to a canine Marilyn Monroe.

The first book I ever read cover to cover was Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne, and now, many decades later, it remains the best book I ever read. I mention this because the special relationship between Christopher Robin, and Edward Bear, aka Winnie the Pooh, is very much like the relationship I enjoy with my dog Cookie.

Like Pooh, who adored honey, Cookie has a nose for good food, especially bacon, but also whatever happens to be cooking at the moment in the kitchen. And much like Pooh, Cookie has a certain kind of bravery, of the sort that can lead to trouble, despite her best intentions.
