Meet Cookie Sworen, a Bichon Frise who lives with Jim and Maryann Sworen in Avoca. Cookie, nicknamed “The Cookie Monster,” recently turned 9 years old!
Cookie was rescued as a puppy in 2010 from Second Hope Rescue in Leonardtown, Maryland. She and her mom are advocates against puppy mills and believe it’s best to “Adopt Not Shop.” There are many wonderful dogs and cats in animal shelters that need homes, they said.
Cookie loves to travel, especially to see family and her favorite vacation spot, Myrtle Beach S.C. She spends her days playing and keeping her dad and two kitty siblings, Tiger and Lucy, company. She is such a unique little dog and loves everyone she meets!
