Kodi chased rabbits, he always howled along with the fire station siren and barked at the postie. Kodi is my parent in-laws dog but the family dog to everyone else (me included). He was always around and had seen it all, birthday parties, arrival of new grandchildren and Christmases.
Three months ago Kodi was diagnosed with a tumor in one of his hind legs. The prognosis was not good, even if his leg was amputated there was no guarantee the tumor would appear somewhere else in his body. Two weeks ago it was obvious he was in pain as he struggled to walk.
Sadly he was put down by the vet this week. He was 12 years old.
“Forever” is an image I captured of Kodi and my mother-in-law running on the beach this last summer. He will be cremated and his ashes will be scattered at sea from this very beach.
Rest in peace Kodi.
Kodi – inseparable companion to all – June 2001 to June 2013
