Cody Filipowicz 1998-2008

A 100-pound golden retriever with the energy of a puppy, you couldn't meet Cody without falling in love with him. He greeted every visitor to my in-law's house with overwhelming enthusiasm and a wag of an enormous tail. Those who didn't take the time to rub his belly as they came in, would have their shoes playfully snatched away.

Cody was Adam's dog, and when we got married we briefly considered taking him with us. But Cody needed a big yard, and a house that was familiar to him, so he stayed behind.

Yesterday Cody went to the vet to have fluid drained from his stomach, but it turned out that most of the fluid was blood. The vet recommended that Cody be put down. He was 9 1/2 years old.

Goodbye Cody. We'll miss your big fuzzy heart.

So sad. What a nice looking dog he was. Sorry to hear this news.

I'll miss him too :( I loved wrestling him ( and leaving covered in loads of blonde hair)
