In my breed being old is a huge deal. I think anyone with a Berner would be more than happy to hear an "old dog" comment.

So rather than be hurt by those comments be proud and grateful that you have an older dog to enjoy time with.

Dog Health > Pre existing condition for insurance

Nope. If its pre-existing, even with a tentative diagnosis, there is no way around it. You need to provide insurance companies with all vet records in order to get coverage. Hiding records or giving false information is fraud, plain and simple.

Most of the dogs I can think of that are one person dogs may also not be great with kids, especially a concern if you have kids coming and going from your house. Loyal and one person are also very different concepts. I think most dogs are loyal to their family, even if they are not one person dogs.

By "intelligent" I am going to assume that you mean "biddable" as there is a difference between the two and when most people say intelligent what they really mean is biddable.

My list is of dogs that you have already probably thought. There is a reason that some breeds have stood the test of time when it comes to popular family dogs. So based on what you are looking for, here is what I suggest:

Labrador Retriever - has all the qualities you want except the one person/watch dog/shedding.
Golden Retriever - same as above but they can have a shorter lifespan.
Standard poodle - need regular grooming but other than that has all the qualities you are looking for.
For a smaller dog I would suggest a Pug - all around good dogs and if you keep the weight off them they can live a long, healthy life. They may not be swimmers though and you have to watch them in hot weather.

Contact your local animal shelters as wellin case someone has been checking their for her. I am sure there is someone out there who is really missing their puppy.

Dog Health > Vulva issues (urgent help needed)

I am trying to get a sense of what is going on. She has been having issues since May and you said she has been eating Nutrience for a few months. How long after starting the new food did she start having the problems you described? Is there anything else different that you can think of - yard/grass treatments, different bed or laundy soap, any different treats, trips to new places, a move? I am just thing to think of any change that may be causing a reaction like this.

What kind of food is cookie eating? This sounds like it may be a yeast issue which can be made worse with certain foods.
Has she had any problems with her ears (itchy, smelly, dirty looking)?

Also, I would not use bitter apple spray on her vulva. I'd she is already having issues, you do not want to compound them by spraying something there and I imagine it would not feel very good.
