    If it were me I would of scooped up my dog and made a mad dash to the 24 hr emergency vet. My heart breaks for Bethany and her daughter Brynn for there is nothing harder than the loss of a beloved fur baby! I remember Cookie on the reality shows,she had to of been pretty old by now! I always say there is only one negative to owning a dog and that one and only negative is when they have to leave us!!! Praying for Bethany and her daughter during this sad and painful time???????? RIP COOKIE????????

    My heart goes out to Bethenny Frankel for he loss of Cookie. But, your dog is having seizures and 17 years old, in my mind there is no question of whether to take her to the vet or not. Rest in peace Cookie, it sounds like you had 17 years where you were loved.

    You live in an area with a huge population, and you do not have a veterinarian to call and talk with? Seizures are horrible and I think most people know what they look have a small dog that you could have been holding and comforting instead of videoing. I am sorry for your loss. You are so lucky to have had SEVENTEEN YEARS. You were frightened, imagine how Cookie felt – needed some calm and reassuring words and touch.

    So instead of immediately taking your dog to a veterinarian you go on twitter instead – Cookie was 17 years old, and you gave her a great life – yes, it is heartbreaking to lose a pet, we all know the feeling – BUT remember, you will meet again – Cookie is just waiting for you.
