Happy 8th Birthday Cody!

I don't know Cody's exact Birthday, but we know it is probably sometime around late October to November by our vets original guess.

It's hard for me to believe it's been 8 years already, time flies far too quickly! I can still remember the first time I saw Cody at the SPCA... I was looking at a bunch of BC/Lab X puppies, when all of a sudden behind me I noticed a Black dog standing up on his backlegs to peer through the window of the door. I went over and checked the pup out - it was a black tri aussie pup :cloud9:

I immediately knew I had to see him. I got my family to come over and look in the window, and they agreed he was super cute. So we talked to the staff and went in the room with him. At this time, his name was 'Woody', he was unfixed still, but a bouncy, happy, 10 monthish puppy. We asked the staff about what had happened to his neck, it was shaved all the way around, with stitches.

"We don't know - They left him tied with a rope to the front door - no notes, no history."

He had a stuffed goose in the room with him, I started playing fetch, and he rolled on his back wagging his little stub tail lightning fast hoping for belly rubs.

I knew it was meant to be. My family sat down at a little table with the application form 'Are you sure this is the dog you want?'

"Yes, I'm sure."

And the rest is history :D

Happy Birthday Cody!

Thanks, he's going to get a special treat tomorrow night, I didn't get a chance to pick anything up today. Not that the exact date really matters, we usually just celebrate the week of Halloween :D

I need to get him a present still... (shh) *sneaks off to the store* :o

Yeah, thats what we thought, and the SPCA as well; he still has the scars even now. When we first got him he didn't bark for about a month, then he found his voice and hasn't stopped vocalizing since :laughing:

Cody thanks everyone for the B-Day wishes! :dog:
