Kody's last day, a very sad day

Ann Coates level-classic 2/28/2013 12:23:10 AM

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. #1516819

Chris, so sorry for the loss of your Koda! She will be enjoying shrimp everyday now and smiling down on you. My heart breaks for you guys losing your pet. #10590337

Chris Ebben level-classic 3/1/2013 3:53:09 PM

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.... #10592216

Laura E. Swan level-classic 3/1/2013 7:57:33 PM

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.

Soooooo sorry for your loss, Chris and Tony!! You shared a wonderful life with Kody and made her life so peaceful and special!! Can see that she was a very special little friend!! So sorry, again! #10594094

Chris Ebben level-classic 3/2/2013 9:52:53 PM

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. #10594103

Hello Chris and Tony

I was so sorry to hear of your loss
You can take comfort in knowing you gave your Kody the most wonderful life possible....A life full of love and adventure

I smiled when I read the story about Mr Happy on the stethoscope
I'm Glad Kody got the chance to Meet Mr Happy!!
He has touched a lot of lives.

I will keep you in my thoughts #10594415

So sorry for your loss. This is a beautiful portrait I'm sure you have many wonderful memories! #10610008

Chris Ebben 3/14/2013 9:29:47 PM

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.... #10610071

Emile Abbott level-classic 3/24/2013 1:03:41 PM

Kody I know you are frolicking over the RAINBOW BRIDGE, with Kemah. You all have fun till we get to meet you again. #10622430

Chris Ebben level-classic 4/8/2013 10:09:36 PM

Thanks so much, Emile. I know she certainly has a lot of friends there. #10646343

Cindy Bendush level-classic 10/10/2013 8:58:53 PM

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 :-) #10868200

Chris Ebben level-classic 11/3/2013 3:37:43 PM

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. #10889855

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.
