Today is a sad day...
My mom and dad lost their beloved dog, Cody.
Cody had a love for strange things like bike helmets and sponges, and although he often spent his time driving my brother and I crazy with his lazy carefree ways, he was a great loyal and devoted dog for my parents.
He was always mild and well behaved. My mom babied him like crazy, and took him to my grandparents farm every week.
He was always the slowest of all our dogs...following the pack, but lagging way behind...I think that had a lot to do with all the food my mom gave him all the time.
My dog and my brother's dogs will be heartbroken not to have their pal on their romps around the farm.
In the end, he ate a sponge and the pieces of it caused a blockage in his intestines. The vet had to remove 2 feet of his intestines in a surgery to try to save his life, but in the end, it wasn't meant to be....
So today we lost a friend...one that we'll always remember...a gentle soul.
