In Memory of Koda
August 2003 – February 18, 2014

Koda was simply the greatest dog that ever lived. I guess I shouldn’t say “greatest dog that ever lived,” because he was one of us. When our other dogs, Lucy and Chip, were off being dogs, Koda was hanging out with us. He loved us more than life itself and I hope we did enough to show him the same. He was the leader of the pack, and we didn't realize until after he left just how much we looked to him to lead us as well. Whenever there was a suspicious sound, Koda would run to be by our side to protect us, while Lucy and Chip went to investigate. A simple glance would have him jumping up from his resting spot to run up to you and get all up in your face, for everyone knows that eye contact means “Koda, hurry, come here.” He welcomed any opportunity to be close to us, in your lap, or directly underneath your feet. The house is not the same without him and our lives will be forever changed, but we are lucky to have known him, to have called him our family and to have been loved by him unconditionally.
