Pretty Little Cookie

I asked my son’s girlfriend for permission to post her dog’s picture.  And here is the little beauty, clearly ready for her close up!

This is Cookie.  The vet said she’s all chihuahua, although we wonder about that.  From what I understand, Cookie was living in a small business, then the business closed or relocated. So my son’s girlfriend took her in. Now Cookie has her forever home and is thriving. I think she’s around eight months old.

Doesn’t she look like she should be in commercials? In case you can’t tell, she has really pretty green eyes.

P.S. I need to visit Bailey and get some new pictures of him to post so he doesn’t get jealous that I put Cookie on my blog :-)

    Oh Cookie is so cute. I’m so happy that she has a forever home with your son’s girlfriend.
    You’re right, Bailey must have new photos :).

    Do Cookie and Bailey get along? Because that would be a cute picture.

    She looks like a real sweetie, Jen. I’m with you, though. Something about her face doesn’t quite look Chihuahua. I can’t think of what other breed it could be, but it looks pretty on her.

    Awwww!!! How adorable!!! :) She is a cutie and I could definitely see her doing commercials! She has the “puppy” face down pat! I bet she uses it to get treats! :wink:

    Viki, Cookie’s a lucky girl, she’s got a family who adores her now.

    I miss Bailey! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve seen him.

    B.E., they haven’t tried to socialize her with Bailey, and probably won’t. Bailey is just too cranky with other dogs. He’s great with people, a real lover. But not so much with dogs.

    We can’t figure it out either with Cookie–there’s something really definitive about her face, but I can’t place it.

    Shiloh, I’m pretty sure Cookie gets whatever she wants :-)

    Sooooo cute. ANd I don’t even like little dogs. I should note that when I opened this and said, “Awwwwwww” the boys came running over. Cooper stared at the screen, turned his head to look at me and seemed to say, “Is that dessert, Mom? You said cookie!” Boy was he disappointed! ;)

    The reason she doesn’t look chihuahua-ish is probably because of her head. Most chihuahua’s were bred to have encephalitis, swelling of the brain. That is what makes their eyes bulge and their head become larger than normal. People thought it looked cute so they started breeding them that way. Luckily the dogs brain can adjust since it happens at such a slow rate. But since she is a puppy her head hasn’t swollen yet. Some people also have stints put in to drain the swelling.

    That’s just my guess and my two cents! :wink:

    Silver, so sorry to disappoint Cooper! LOL! I’m sure he was confused by the fuss over a small dog. I’m a big dog lover too, but some small dogs can win my heart.

    Shiloh I had no idea! Thanks for sharing! I’ve done research on Min Pins but not Chihuahuas.
