All in the Family


Golden Retriever

Cody was my first puppy and my first best friend. Our family welcomed him into our home when I was just seven years old. He was extremely sweet and always well behaved.. just the perfect dog. Well, except for the time he ripped open a bag of potting soil, rolled in it, and dragged it all over the house! A fresh tennis ball was his toy of choice, always carrying as many as his mouth allowed. He loved ripping the fur off of them and chewing the ball until it popped in two. Every Sunday he enjoyed going for long walks at our local state park, especially in the winter. He loved rolling around in the snow, even when he aged and his joints were giving in, he still laid down and rubbed his face in the snow. As he aged and his face began showing touches of white, he became more handsome. Cody crossed the Rainbow Bridge on October 6th, 2008. It's been hard living without him, but looking at pictures of him and talking about him with those that also loved him helps keep the memory of him alive.

Love the golden face, we have lost 4 goldens in the years and it hurt so much, we now have another 2 from Memphis Area Golden Rescue and we are in love again. I will never be without.

So sorry for your loss. Cody's bio made me both laugh, (the potting soil) and cry! Cody does sound like he was the *perfect* dog. It's apparent how very much you love and miss him. He was a handsome puppy dog -- one of the good guys. Blessings to you!

So sorry for your loss. Goldens are such loving gentle dogs. It is very easy to love them and so very hard when we lose them. His memories will always be a part of you and his love will always be with you.
