Kody's last day, a very sad day
  Kody's last day, a very sad day
Kody's last day, a very sad day
This was taken this morning before Kody's final trip to the vet. She had spent the last week not wanting to get up & the last 2 days not eating or drinking, she had kidney failure & her tongue had broken out in ulcers. We were packed to go away this arvo in our van with family & I thoughgt if we didn't go now we'd never go. The van is empty without her. She was 19yr & 6 months yesterday. She'll be missed so much.Lens aperture f3.2, shutter speed 1/8 sec, focal length 4mm, ISO 800.

    I feel so sad for you, such a big part of your lives. You can see in her eyes how sick she is. It was her time and you can let her go in the knowledge that she has had the most wonderful life with you.

Thank you all so much. We are having a very sad time in the van without her. We keep looking for her & moving things out the way to make it easy for her to get around!! We have only been in a van twice without her to see how we handled it & then we took her every-time except once she wouldn't go as my cousins were going with us. Kody looked at all their belongings in the van & went back in the house to bed. Everyone was laughing but her!! We have a lot of good times to remember. Thanks again, gotta go & cry some more....

I just sent you a mail and am still sobbing. I don't have the words past what I sent you just now on e-mail. Except to agree with the others that you gave Kody such a great life filled with love and fun and friendship and pampering.

You were such a blessing for each other. Dale and I still laugh and then have tears when we remember Lucky and Pookey. I had a good cry over Lucky again today and he passed 2 years ago in May.

Our love to you and Tony. So very sorry.

Thanks again. When I saw Ellen's Mini-Pic it made me smile. When we took Kody in the last time & she was examined, who do you think was there? My Happy on the stethoscope!! I just looked & smiled, remembering his time with us, the 4 of us had a few good laughs setting up photo shoots. Thanks again to you all.

Well we are home from our lonely caravan holiday. I did manage to laugh a couple of times, like when my cousin cut all the locks off his new caravan only to then find out he was using the wrong keys. One day I saw a soap shape in the sink that made me think of Kody watching me, hopefully I can put it here for you to see. Thanks again everyone....

I'm so very sorry for your loss Chris. Kody certainly lived a long happy life with you; I feel the same about Bonnie - she was 15. We weren't so lucky with Bailey: he was only 4 :-( I'm sure they are all well and happy over the rainbow bridge - playing and frolicking together :-)

Thanks so much Cindy. Some days I still find it hard to take that she is gone, I still miss her so much. As you say, we were luckier with Kody & Bonnie, than you were with Bailey. Thanks again.
