Anna Cooke put a fine art career on hold to enter the advertising world. The name Anna Cooke became synonymous with creative excellence as she went on to become a celebrated art director and then creative director of international renown. Her award-winning design work for industry giants ABC, D&B, and others, eventually led to an agency partnership which exists to this day. Anna Cooke is also co-founder and editor of the awarding-winning dog magazine, The New Barker. "What matters most is what you have done, not what others have done to you."

Just met up w/ Jan/Spirit4Aussie Rescue, who’s driving to Aussie Gathering/Mulberry. Taking copies of The New Barker for new fans. Yesterday Jan rescued an Aussie 1 hour from being euthanized. Was told dog was a 2 year-old female. After taking dog to vet who shaved the badly matted dog: she is a he, about 8 years old. Badly infected ear: fish hook embedded in flap. As Jan fosters, we’ll get PupDates.
