It was around this time of the year in 1998 that a little white Bichon Frise entered our home to captivate all our hearts. He joined the pet menagerie consisting of a golden retriever, a tabby cat and a guinea pig. He would try his hardest to wiggle his way into your affections. He had a way of “talking” to you with is eyes.
I had always wanted a “little” dog. One that could sit on my lap, and snuggle with me. Cody spent the early mornings snuggled up against me during my quiet time, and also had worked his way on the bed, and slept between Craig and I until he could not longer jump up.
Cody had some internal tumors that the vet and us believed were pressing on his spine that had reached a point where it was uncomfortable for him. In July, we said our goodbyes.
I know I’m not the only one that misses him.
I recently completed a watercolor of Cody in a pose that I like to remember him by. This was the best our scanner would do, but I’m sharing it with you.
