Last week we said goodbye to Cody. Our partner-in-DIY. Codeman. The one who was at his happiest when he was by our side. The buddy who you’ve gotten to see on this blog. He was simply awesome. He came to live with me at age 1, just 3 months after I bought my first home and a full year before I began this blog. He was a total companion dog who assumed his role perfectly and saw me transition through enormous life stages like marrying, moving, and babies.

Best remembered for his morning snuggles, nonstop talking, high-speed sprinting, and those silly face buttons that made his lips curl like Elvis. Honored for his loyalty. Loved his purple toy, walks on the beach, anyone walking down our street, naps in the Jeep, watching wildlife, and snow.

Thanks to those of you who have reached out with kind messages. We are happy to have been his people.
