“You know why I'm carrying this shovel around? It's to find fossils so I can look smart, arfer.”
― Cookie, City Folk
Cookie (ペリーヌPerīnu?) is a peppydogvillager in the Animal Crossing series. She was absent from Wild World, but returned in City Folk. She is likely named Cookie because of her cute appearance and sweet personality or because treats for dogs are sometimes called cookies. Her initial catchphrase, "arfer", is a variation of the word "arf", the sound a dog makes. She appears on the album cover for DJ K.K., which is also her favorite song.
Cookie is a pink dog, with a white stripe that starts from the top of her head and goes down to encircle her muzzle. Her eyes appear to sparkle, and her paws and tail tip are white. Cookie's brown nose resembles a chocolate chip. She has a brown smile and her ears are a darker shade of pink than her body. Initially, she wears a Blue Tartan Tee, and she carries a Gelato Umbrella on rainy days.
Below is a brief description of the peppy personality. For more information, click here.
Peppy villagers appear to be in a good mood often and are easy to become friends with. As a peppy villager, Cookie will have the tendency to over-react in conversations about trivial subjects, and will usually be over-excited to see the player or other villagers. This villager, like other peppy villagers, will rarely be discouraged from doing anything, including the usual hobbies. Peppy villagers dream of becoming famous in the future and read Ms. Nintendique, an unseen magazine read by snooty, normal, and other peppy villagers in the Animal Crossing Series. Peppy villagers will also have a very short attention span, which means they soon forget some arguments or tasks given to the player which were not completed. Cookie may easily get upset in conversation when the wrong things are said. She will get along well with other villagers, particularly lazy, normal, jock, uchi and other peppy villagers, but she may annoy and upset cranky and snooty villagers, whose personalities differ to hers. Due to the nature of peppy villagers, she may mention how "old" or "boring" cranky villagers are compared to her opposing, upbeat personality.
In City Folk, Cookie's house is country-themed, with a large collection of Ranch Furniture, such as a Ranch Hutch, a Ranch Bed, a Ranch Wardrobe, a Ranch Armchair, a Ranch Chair, a Ranch Tea Table, a Ranch Table, and even a Ranch Dresser. K.K. Chorale plays on her Hi-Fi Stereo with her whole set of Tootoids. Her wallpaper is the Ranch Wall and her flooring is the Ranch Flooring.
In New Leaf, Cookie's house has less of a country theme, but she still has part of the Ranch Series, such as the dresser, the hutch, and the bed. She also has part of the Patchwork set, and some plants, like the Pachira and the White Violets. She plays DJ K.K. on her Record Player. Her wallpaper is the Ranch Wall, and her flooring is the Round Carpet.
