BEVERLY HILLS—My name is “Cookie”, and I’m a little boy, although some people say that with my silky hair I could be mistaken for a girl – and I have to admit that I have been, more than a few times!  (Especially by the person that’s writing this column!!) 
I want you to know that I’m just about perfect.  I could really say that I’m completely perfect, but I don’t want to brag.  Here is what you can expect if you adopt me.  First of all, I get along with everyone –  dogs and cats and children – and, oh, yes, grown-ups, too!  I’ve been neutered, and I’m up to date on my shots.  I don’t guard any of my belongings, such as my food, my  toys, or my bed – I’ll share them all. I don’t chew, or dig, or jump on people.  I’m not a barker, and I’m not aggressive.  I have no separation anxiety, and last, but not least, I’m housetrained! 
Now, can I ask you something?  What more could you possibly want? So, I have no idea why I haven’t been adopted. I’ve been here several months, and I always seem to be passed over for one of my friends.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m always glad when one of my friends is adopted – but, I sure wish that someone would pick me.  Well, hopefully, next time. So, how about making an appointment to see me, then you can see me in person and see what a good boy I am. I’ll be waiting – but, don’t make me wait too long, OK?
A few quotes to enjoy: 
“Home computers are being called upon to perform many new functions, including the consumption of homework formerly eaten by the dog.” – Doug Larson;
“If you are a dog and your owner suggests  that you wear a sweater…suggest that he wear a tail.” – Fran Lebowitz;
“A Canadian psychologist is selling a video that teaches you how to test your dogs IQ.  Here’s how it works: if you spend $12.50 for the video, your dog is smarter than you.” – Jay Leno. 
Now, “Cookie” is still waiting for that phone call, so, please, don’t disappoint him. You can also see all of our other wonderful dogs and cats on our website at:
