kodi was euthanized today.

Posted: July 9, 2010 at 4:49 pm


the vet did examine him and his rectum was starting to close off from the tumour. he was going to hit a bowel crises pretty soon here so we decided to save him from that.

kodi thought today was an interesting adventure…except for the rectal check, he thought the trip was pretty good. he did get his couple of cheese burgers and i think he might have wanted a couple of more. he had his good friend ann with him and it made him happy that she was there.


while kodi was a pain in the ass around here..he was our pain in the ass. he was a big part of the saints family and i am missing his unique form of chaos right now.

it is too quiet here kodi, it just doesn’t feel really right.

i hope you are not resting in peace but gleefully herding angels with wings….miss you kodi-bear, in your own crazy cattle dog way, you were a really good dog.

    Good night Kodi bear…… time now to rest
    Your work here is done and you passed the test

    You’ve herded the buddies onto their bed
    And made sure that you have been amply fed

    Jesse & Bailey you’ve put in their place
    And anyone else who got in your face

    So now that your “ducks” are all in a row
    The big guy is calling and you have to go

    The house will be empty without you there
    Sweet dreams, we love you……Good night Kodi bear

    So glad Kodi had a good last day with Carol, Ann & McD.
    Those eyes of his said it all….I’m watching you and I’m going to get you! It will be so quiet without your high pitched herding bark. Glad to have met you.. ya crazy, funny boy.

    moderndog magazine mentioned Kodi’s passing on their facebook page. That was nice and thoughtful. Remember Kodi was part of the photo shoot … he was definately an unforgettable one-of-a-kind doggie. http://www.facebook.com/pages/wwwmoderndogmagazinecom/18611703225

    Miss you my blue friend.

    To love him was to let him go – I like to think of him as a herding angel now… my heart goes to all who knew and loved him…

    That was an amazing poem Ann. The house will be so empty without you. Love you Kodi bear.
