Cody was such a sweet girl
Cody was a very good and sweet dog. I couldn't have asked for a better dog. We grew up together. I had her since I was 15 years old. I could go on all night with stories from how she learned to open doors, to how she would eat my Dad’s socks. She was born on June 1st, 2002. She was a 100% collie, and the runt of her litter. But boy did she make up for it with all her personality.
I knew as the years rolled on I would eventually have to face this. However, nothing can prepare you for it. I will cherish her, and all of the memories we shared over the years. The things I will miss the most are things like Pee-o-Clock or how silly she could be. Sometimes she would just look at you, and it would say so much. Sometimes she would huff at you. Other times she might nudge you, or even wink at you. But I'll really miss the kisses, and paw shakes hello when I came home from work. You could have the worst day in the world. But then you would come home, and she be at door, and she be SO EXCITED to see you, and give all her love to you. It just made the whole day seem not so bad. How could you not smile? I’ll miss the constant companionship she gave me. She was a people person and never wanted to be alone. She would follow you from room to room, and be right by your side. We had so many good times. I know she lived a long and happy life.
After thirteen years, two months, and three days it was time to say good bye to my best friend. It was the hardest thing I have ever done. However she ended her life surrounded by the people who loved her most. We said our good byes, and she even used what had to be all of her strength to shake my hand one last time. Cody passed away on Tuesday August 4th, 2015 at 10:49pm. Thank you all for being part of her life. I know it meant so much to her, and it means the world to me.
