Bethenny Frankel‘s 17-year-old dog Cookie — who was featured often alongside Bethenny on “Real Housewives of New York” — died Monday morning after a weekend of medical emergencies.

Frankel posted a series of videos on Sunday, saying Cookie had suffered a 45-minute seizure. Early Monday morning, she said Cookie had suffered two more seizures.

Three hours later, Frankel shared the terrible news, writing, “My @cookiedabooboo is gone. Bless her furry heart…”

Last summer, Frankel recounted to PEOPLE how she came to own Cookie.

“She was brown and the rest of the litter was white, so she was the last, unwanted ugly duckling,” Frankel told the mag. “She was 75 bucks and they said I could return her the next day if I wanted to.”

“She was so cute and looked like a chocolate chip cookie. It was love at first snuggle,” Frankel said.
