Senior Shelter Pets with Rachael Ray

Senior Shelter Pets with Rachael Ray -
Today I'm partnering with Rachael Ray to talk about Senior Rescue Pets. Rachael Ray is a huge advocate of rescue animals having created Rachael's Rescue for all forgotten pets as well as donating all of her personal proceeds from sales of Nutrish and using them towards food, medical supplies and treatments for animals in need. I asked one of my favorite people on earth to share her story with her senior pet rescue, so take it away Megan.

I have a particular affection for older dogs. Just like people, they are set in their ways, maybe a little slower but all the wiser. Cookie came into my life very quickly after I lost my other elderly dog, Maisy. I wasn't looking to get another dog right away as I was so heartbroken over saying goodbye to my sweet lady. While my mom was looking on the Arizona Humane Society website for a friend, she came across this sweet little pug named Cookie.

I should back up to tell you, I am a certifiable crazy pug lady; Megan and pug go hand in hand for most people. Naturally, that meant a 6:00 am Saturday morning text from my mom telling me I needed to go get this girl. I was so torn, I wasn't sure I was ready again. It's so hard to fathom the thought of that loss again one day. Over lunch with friends, I had told them about Cookie and showed them a photo of her. By the end of lunch, we had all decided to make it a group effort and meet Cookie. When I arrived to the Humane Society, another woman and her son had just arrived to also look at Cookie. With a flip of a coin and a little luck, I was able to meet her first. It was love at first sniff and it was clear we would soon be great friends.

Cookie is now of the wonderful age of 8 and has sweet little white hairs popping up in her face with the spirit of a pup. She is the best companion and someone I know I can rely on at any time. I often ask myself who rescued who when I think of the love she's given me. I am so grateful for her in my life.

Megan and Cookie are absolute perfection together, they have such a wonderful and special relationship I just know it was meant to be. Thank you to Megan for sharing her story and so many wonderful photos of Cookie! If you want to learn more about Rachael Ray's work and Nutrish follow on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
