We adopted Bertie (then Cookie) when she was 4 years old. She had been given up by an older woman whose situation had changed. Bertie was overweight and had an attitude to match! We brought her home and started her diet and exercise plan. She’s lost about 15 pounds since we’ve had her and there’s still plenty to go but she’s doing great! She loves romping in the yard and going for walkies. She’s smart as a whip and has learned sit, stay, come, lay down, and many more! She’s the best thing that has happened to us and we love her so much!
