We adopted Cody February of 2006. He came from a litter of 9 pups from West Virginia (see attached story from AFH). At the time we met him, his name was Giovanni, but he quickly took to Cody. When we first met, I sat in the pen with his brothers and sisters and he immediately jumped into my arms and started linking my face. That was all it took. He was a wonderful addition to our family for over 16 years and was a great pet to my two children. He loved to go on vacations with us and explore all the places we would go. He was the protector of our home with his deep loud bark but at the same time wouldn’t hurt a soul and loved everyone he met. While Covid was not welcomed by many, working from home daily was a blessing that allowed us to be with him as he began to succumb to getting older. I will miss our walks together the most! He had a full life filled with love and affection and sadly, he crossed that rainbow bridge in May of this year. Not a day goes by that don’t think of him and the time we shared together. Attached is our last family selfie! He is truly missed every day.  

Special thank you to Laytonsville Veterinary who took wonderful care of him throughout his entire life and helped us through those difficult end of life decisions, it was greatly appreciated!
