On September 10, 2007 we said goodbye Cody. He was our faithful friend and constant companion for nearly seventeen years. He was full of love, joy, and fun. He was protector of our home and keeper of our hearts. He would have gladly laid his life down for any one of us. He was a good dog.

It was the hardest thing we’ve ever had to do. Everyone in my family was crushed. To try to help them get through it, I wrote this little “Goodbye Letter” from Cody to each of them. It seemed to help a little. If you ever have to go through the same thing and need to help your loved ones understand, maybe a letter like this could help you.
