I ran into some old pictures... Answered

So tonight, I went from being bored, to being kinda sad. (I am actually crying) In 2002 (when I was 5) I remember having this Collie (dog) named Cody. We had him for 3 years at this time. I knew he had a defect where his leg was out of his socket. He had trouble walking as he got a bit older. What I didn't know was that he had some kind of infection under his skin on his back. So later that year, me, my mom, my dad, and my brother all got into my moms car with our dog. I thought he was just getting a check up.The next day my phone rang. My dad answered it... about a minute later my dad came into the room, with a sad look on his face and a tear running down his cheek. He knelt in front of me and said, "Justin.... I'm sorry, Cody died yesterday." So now, while bored I found some pictures of him. R.I.P. Cody (1999 - 2002)

He's a very nice looking dog, I'm sorry that his life ended so soon.

I too had a dog that had a short, but loving life span.  When I was younger, I had a dog named Buddy, and he died of some bone defect.  I couldn't stop crying for days.  First actual experience with death.  It can be tough for anyone, even with years of cool down time.

Yes, he was a very cute dog :)

It was the hardest on me considering this was the first death I have ever experienced...

So the infection was the fatal part? That's really sad. Dogs are great.

Uhh.... I don't know. It was either the thing on his back, or we put him down so he wasn't in pain.

My dad says that our current dog is our last dog. So I was thinking, when the worst day happens again, maybe I could get like a snake or something.

Well, at least you'll get something good out of a poor situation.

Yeah, just like I did with Cody. If he hadn't died, I would not have my current dog.

Optimism is always good. Life gives you lemons, make lemonade.

but what do u do when life gives u lemonade?  (i just thought of that!!)

thats a sad/heartwarming story. My sympathies are with you.

Thanks... it least he will never suffer again. My parents told me that he went to heaven, where he can walk like a normal dog.

Yeah parents say things like that, but as far as God goes, dogs don't have souls so it's not true. (You do have my belated sympathy though) L

orr thats cute

That's so said My dog was a beagle who was a couch potatoe pretty much lyed around but one doy she started coughing and my dad took her to the vet and then he called and said that they had to put her to sleep. She had cancer we would have had to do surgery that she might have not even lived through But it was to expensive to pay for the surgerie..... So we had to put her to sleep. All sympathy to you.

That's sad. I know It's not pretty good to talk about it, but my aunt had a dog who had cancer. My selfish aunt waited about 1 or 2 years before putting it to sleep. The poor thing couldn't walk! It had to like limp.

He was a pretty dog. It is sad when they have problems that can't be fixed. My wife's dog (before we got married, since I can't have a dog in the apt.) was a Basset hound, and they are known for having difficulties with their hips (dysplasia). Sure enough, as he got older, his balance and such got pretty bad (he fell off her porch once onto the concrete sidewalk). His eyes got so bad he had a difficult time determining who was in front of him, except when they were up wind.
