Poor Kodi passed away last night. Katherine his human went to heroic measures to try to get him well and keep him comfortable. Kodi had lost the use of his hind legs and with the paralysis his bladder and bowel control. Having to work, Kathrine would come home to a mess every night She would have to haul him to the bathroom and bathe him and then clean up the mess. She resorted to buying him Depends but had trouble keeping them on him. We used to joke she should get him suppenders. She also was getting up in the middle of the night to take him out to go to the bathroom, get a drink of water or just to make sure he was comfortable. When I say taking him out, I mean physically carrying him and Kodi was not a small dog. Kodi was seeing Bert at the Cache Creek Holistic Vet. and for a while Kodi was responding but I think Kodi had too many issues for him to get well before he his body finally just gave out. At least Kodi died the way Katherine had hoped for... in her arms at home. She did not want to have him put down.
Kodi is now in a better place, comfortable, and probably chasing butterflies in a golden field.

Rest In Peace Kodi

Oh...I know Kodi is happy and healthy now.

Losing a family member is so damned hard.
