Canine climbs 40-foot tall trees

WASHINGTON — HOI 19 News first brought you a story that’s making national headlines- it’s about a dog from Washington that can climb 40-foot tall trees.

Kodi’s owner was hoping for some national attention.

But in less than a week he got CNN, ABC’s Good Morning America and dozens of other news outlets across the country.

Owner Pat Tully says a crew from Inside Edition is coming by next week, too.

Tully says the best part of all this recent fame is that Kodi made it to ESPN.

“ESPN- I have to say was the pinnacle. To be on the top 10 plays of the day it was just– it doesn’t get any better for sports guys,” Tully said.”I’ve had to slap myself more than once to make sure I’m not dreaming. It’s been wonderful.”

Tully says although he and his family are excited, Kodi has no idea what commotion she’s caused. He says she just continues to climb trees and bring people joy.
