I met Mookie when she was 7 1/2 years old. That was 9 1/2 years ago. Since then she and I had become inseparable.
Mookie enjoyed a warm lap to fall asleep on. Either that or a nice sliver of sunlight streaming in a window where she would lie down and catch some shuteye. In the colder months, when there was less sun available, Mookie would sometimes crawl into my bed during the day and sleep under the sheet and comforter. At least twice I found her asleep under the covers with her head on my pillow. What a character, that one.
Her favorite foods were AvoDerm and Subway!!! She loved black olives and deli turkey. And she was adept at stealing some licks from a bowl of ice cream I left sitting on the coffee table for only a moment when my back was turned. She loved to be brushed (while being fed treats) and, of course, she loved being petted.
Mookie was my best friend and loving companion. I miss her so very much and life is lonelier without my little girl to share it with.
A donation was made in Mookie's memory and the memorial was created on March 30, 2017.
