I have a 12 year old Lab mix who was diagnosed with lung cancer that had spread throughout his body. He isn't in pain, but I could tell he was feeling older: slow movements, long naps, shorter walks. Cody means a lot to me because he used to be the dog my older brother and I shared as kids. When my brother passed away, I spent much of my time with Cody: going on walks and sitting at the park. I thought that since Cody knew my brother too, he'd be missing him as well. Making the decision to acquire a puppy was not taken lightly, but I thought, rather selfishly, that maybe Cody would pass down his knowledge to the new pup. Well, Jasper came along, at 6 weeks old (the person who gave him to me told me he was 8 weeks old, but later confirmed she made a "mistake" on the birthdate) and this little ball of fluff just jumpstarted Cody's old heart! Now, Jasper makes sure Cody wakes up in the morning and tugs him to his favorite toys, encouraging Cody to chase him. Jasper doesn't even mind that Cody isn't able to keep up, because he'll just circle back around and start over. And when Cody is too tired to go on playing, Jasper will follow him to the couch, where Cody will climb up to sleep, and Jasper will plop down below him to chew on his toy.
