Arrival Story: We met Cody on Christmas Eve of 2011 when he was with his brother and foster Mom. We fell in love with him on the spot. After some conversation, we agreed to bring him to our home on Monday, Dec. 26th to see if he was a good fit. When that morning came, we could only wait until 10:00 AM. We spent 5 hours with him and knew we wanted him to become a part of our family! He became our's later on that evening!!
Bio: An update to Cody's story: Cody and our family made the move from Lakemoor, Il to Morgantown, WV! Cody is now a true Mountain Dog! He loves the area! All he has to do is walk out on the deck with us in the morning or late evening and see deer everywhere!
It's raining outside now, but Mom said it's going to snow later on today. That's sad for me since we've had temps in the upper 50s for the past 2 days. I got to go on nice long walks with my dad. We missed Mom, but her foot hasn't healed well enough for her to walk that far or fast enough to keep up with us! BOL
Mom told me this morning that this is her last week off before she has to go back to work. Dad is working now too, so that means I'm going to be alone during the day. I'm not afraid of being alone, but just don't like it. I bet all my dog friends understand that! And I'm just not used to being alone every day. It will be hard for me!
Well, it's the end of another week (or so my mom and dad say!)
My dad started a new job this week and I really don't like it! I don't like the fact that he's leaving me, even though my mom is still home with her bad foot!
It's been so cold out lately that my walks have really been shortened! Aunt Marianne and Uncle Gary have been coming over to walk me up the street when Dad is gone because Mom can't walk outside yet. Uncle Gary and I saw 3 deer up on the hill yesterday while we were out. He was amazed that I didn't bark at them. Mom told him later that those 3 deer are my friends and I never bark at them anymore!
It's been over a year since my mom wrote anything in my diary. So much has changed for me with more changes to come.
I now live in Morgantown, WV! I love the mountains, trails and dog parks! The people here are so nice and they are always asking if they can stop and pet me!
Mom goes to work now every day, so I really miss her while she's gone. But, my dad stays home with me. They told me last night that dad got a new job and will not be with me during the day either. Now, I'll have to be alone during the day for the first time in my life. I think I'll be ok, but will really miss my mom and dad. Maybe Aunt Marianne will come over to visit me!
It's snowing outside today, so Dad and I won't be going on any long walks. My mom's foot is still in a boot from her surgery, so she's not allowed to walk me yet.
I hope everyone is doing ok! My mom and I have been so sad about some of our friends leaving us to make the trip over the Rainbow Bridge. We hope they had a very easy and safe trip!
