Last week my brother and his wife had to say good-bye to their 13 year old chocolate lab, Cody, aka Cody Boy. Cody was a beautiful dog, so lovable, and a giant sweetheart. If you’ve ever seen the movie Marley and Me, the story line reminds me so much of Cody. My sister-in-law wrote a sweet tribute to Cody that I thought I would share with you guys below.
Cody a.k.a. “Boy” P. (1998-2011.) Last week, The King of Lake Erie (Rocky River beach, in particular) gently passed away to a place (I just know) of endless bodies of water, water-logged sticks to be thrown and table scraps. Boy, we tried to train you – a joke. Not because you weren’t smart – you were too smart to be bothered as the English would say. As we tried to train you, you taught us all about the good life: eat well, always be gentle with children, sleep in, nap a lot, swim as much as possible in the summer and cuddle any chance you get. Oh, and sometimes stubbornness is just a personality trait in you that OTHERS need to get over. ;) Thanks for all the years of love and laughs. We will love you FOREVER, sweet Boy.
