I never thought I was the type of person that would blog.  Having lost my “best friend” to cancer on 1/29/13, I thought this would be a great way to keep him updated on our family while he plays on the “Rainbow Bridge” waiting for us.



Kodi would have been 10 on 4/18/2013.  He was half black lab and half Saint Bernard.  He was such a good dog.

He was his normal self Sunday 1/27/13, we played in the snow with my Husky and then Kodi fell ill that night.  We figured he just had an upset stomach.  The following morning, he was his normal self.

Then Tuesday came and he fell ill again.  Jennifer (my wife) took him to the Doctor and they immediately believed he had spleen and/or liver cancer.  It turned out she was right.  He also had fluid build-up around the heart.

By the end of the day (4:00), we went to the Vet to say good-bye and he left us peacefully.  The Vet said he probably only had hours left to live.  I take comfort knowing he didn’t suffer and wasn’t in any pain.
