Our boy

Hey y'all,
I hope you are well today.
I debated and hemmed and hawed over whether or not to post this, and I decided since my blog is also a kind of journal for me I decided I would.
Day 4: My sweet fur baby is my blessing.
On October 5th we lost our sweet boy. Our puppa Cody.

He was a sweet dog, very much the Alpha Male, Loved Lee more than anything on this earth.
He drove us crazy, loved to play, made us laugh, gave sweet kisses 
and always protected us from any noise :)
He wasn't as social as we would have liked. He liked things just between the 3 of us.
He never bit or snapped at anyone but would bark his fool head off if you came near.
He loved to snuggle on the back of the couch or sitting beside Lee.
He loved to get a treat when he came in form outside.
We now know that some of the treats we fed him may have contributed to the kidney failure that ended his life all too soon. We are not certain, but it seems too coincidental.
We had him cremated, we just could not imagine life with out him in our home.
So we will always have him with us.
He was our boy. He took us from being a couple to being a family.
I miss him so very much every single day.
It is just not the same with out him.
Lee was devastated. He and Cody were together every single day for over 5 years.
I know some people will never understand, and that's ok.
Our grief for him is between Lee and Me.
We loved him like a child.
I miss you Cody.
I'll love you always.
8 years was not long enough.


  1. Oh Jenny, I am so sorry. My heart is breaking for you right now. I know what a special boy Cody was. They truly are our family, our children and our best friends. I wish I could reach through the computer and give you a giant hug. Those jerky treats have devastated so many pet families and it makes me so angry. Please let me know if there is anything I can do from so far away. Sending so much love to you and Lee!


  2. I am so sorry for you loss. I lost my sweet Thumper (cat) over a year ago and feel the loss every time I sit on the sofa. She was my only lap cat and would curl up on me the second I sat down. Hugs and love to you!

  3. Saying goodbye to our best friends is the hardest. Thinking about you both. Until you meet again, he will rest in peace.

  4. They always leave paws prints on our hearts. So sorry to hear of your loss. Hugs Mrs a.
