Bethenny Frankel’s 17-Year-Old Dog Cookie Dies After Being Hospitalized For Seizures!

Bethenny Frankel has announced that her 17-year-old dog Cookie had passed away. “My @cookiedabooboo is gone,” the Real Housewives of New York City star wrote. “Bless her furry heart…”

“My furry first baby, may your next life be as beautiful as this one was,” she added, captioning a photo of the two. “Thank you for the love you gave to me and my peanut. See you on the other side.”


The news came after Frankel posted a series of tearful videos to Instagram late Saturday night, taken while Cookie was having a seizure in Frankel’s Hamptons home that the Skinnygirl mogul said lasted for 45 minutes, reports PEOPLE.

“Help me, what do we do? Help us! I don’t know what to do. I don’t know where to go. There’s no vet-911. Somebody help us, I don’t know what to do,” Frankel said, her 7-year-old daughter Bryn by her side.

“I’m sorry I didn’t mean to scare anybody. My poor daughter and I have been watching our dog have a seizure for 45 minutes,” Frankel explained in a follow-up clip, later saying she was worried Cookie would die or swallow her tongue if she moved her. “The hospital’s so far, I don’t think she’s going to make it.”


Cookie survived the seizure and was eventually brought to the hospital, where Frankel shared a sweet shot of the pooch laying on her side. “Say your goodbyes to this legendary Gray Lady,” Frankel wrote on the picture, using the nickname she affectionately named her dog.



“[I] have obvious decision to make and “in case” goodbyes to say,” Frankel added on Twitter. “It’s clear what’ll happen, but panic/trauma with a 7-year-old is a lot. Constant seizures for 45 mins in car to vet 45 mins away. #sadhelpless”



“You are amazing,” she told her followers. “When you are alone in something terrifying, you don’t know whether to move dog ,put stick in mouth or sit still. This was rough.”




Cookie’s health continued to decline throughout the evening. “I’m in a bad place,” Frankel told one of her followers when asked how Cookie was doing. “She will be put down.”



“She is not regaining consciousness. It’s to be expected but this was a horrifying experience,” Frankel told another.


On Sunday, Frankel and her daughter paid Cookie a visit in the hospital where Bryn delivered a sweet hand-written note to her first dog.  “I know you’ve always been there for me. Now it is my time to be there for you,” Bryn wrote in the note, which Frankel shared to Instagram. “Me and you are BFF. Love Bryn.”



By Monday morning, the Bravo reality star reported that the dog’s condition had worsened. “My baby had 2 more seizures last PM,” she wrote on Twitter. “My heart is broken.”



Sadly, a few hours later, Frankel confirmed the passing of the beloved pup. “My @cookiedabooboo is gone,” she wrote on Twitter. “Bless her furry heart...”

Our thoughts and prayers are with Bethenny during this difficult time. #RIPCookie
