Last One

Honest - this is the last Cody story - but I have got to share this with y'all.

Tonite I had to take the rest of his things over to his new home. I have been dreading this since I left him on Saturday.

First thing I hear this morning, from one of the girls I work with is how much the family loves him (she knows them) and some funny stories. None of which surprised me or jumped out begging to be told.

So I arrive with his stuff. I see him through the side pane of the front door. Playing with the boys. The doorbell rings and he runs to the door. He sees it's me and, yeah - he's missed me.

Anyway, we're all chatting and they are telling me what a great dog he is. Then they hit me with the big story.

I had warned them that he likes to party. He was spotted at that party trotting around with not just a cigar but a bottle of beer.

I guess they had some family over Saturday nite to meet The Boy. Sitting outside they had a cooler of beer. Cody kept trying to get into the cooler. Finally the one guy handed him a can of beer and said "Fine! If you can open it you can have it." (silly silly man. This is, after all, MY dog.) Cody flipped the can over and next thing they knew there was beer every where and Cody was in heaven!

Oh yeah, you can move away from the family - but once a Bad Example....always a Bad Example.

Damn I'm gonna miss that dog.......

That wasn't Cody, that was Harvey...or so I've been told...

Oh, gawd, that is so cute! I'm glad he's having a wonderful time with his new family, though. :)

You did a good thing. Your ticket to heaven was punched 10 fold over this week. First class is your seating.

Did you get the picture I sent you (via phone)?

Sadly, I have to take my dog to the vet tomorrow - she's having trouble walking. I'm hoping it's just arthritis. :/

Ogre - I don't chew open beer cans unless I'm REALLY drunk :-)
