Cody


Cody, our bird dog. Actually he hunted chew toys better than wildlife.


OK. This month seems to be dog month.

Since, I created a post about Kona, I think it’s appropriate to give a little respect to her predecessor. We wouldn’t have Kona, if it weren't for Cody.

Cody, was our Yellow Lab of 12 and a half years. I made this picture of Cody in the Fall of 1996. Cody was a wonderful family dog and loving companion. Before, his first birthday he had corrective surgery for Hip Dysplasia. His hips were always a little weak compared to other dogs but he was a big, strong dog that had a good life as a result of the operation.

Cody, left us Jan. 7, 2009. Personally, it was a double barreled blast since three days earlier, I lost my job of 20 years due to lay-offs. The changes continue as life evolves around us but the companionship of a dog is unwavering and always complete.
