Remembering Cody... Sept. 25,1992-May 16,2008
After 15 1/2 years it is time for Cody to leave us. We have made the decision to send him on. Although he is still mentally with us, I can't bear to see him try to get up and walk anymore. His back legs will no longer carry him like they used to. I was telling the boys how he used to try to sprint out the door and down the street in his younger days. I would have to chase after him first thing in the morning and he would make me so mad. Oh how I wish that were still the case. We would walk at least 4 miles everyday, and he taught me how to walk fast or get pulled along. He has been the most amazing dog ever. His best trick is giving high five! I could have never have lived by myself if it weren't for Cody there to protect me. Before I had children I always said "I hope that I love my children as much as my dog". We have given him extra love these past few days since we made the decision, and I even cooked him pancakes with syrup just like I did for his Birthdays before he left today. I know he is loved and has a full belly! Farewell my Cody. I will miss you tremendously, but it makes me smile to know that you will soon be running again because we know that ALL DOGS GO TO HEAVEN!
