My husband and I lost our beloved cocker spaniel, Cody, this week. He was nearly 18 years old and had lived with us for nearly eight years. Our hearts are broken, even though we knew this day would come. Despite our sorrow, we are thankful for the many years, more years than expected when we adopted him for our local Humane Society animal shelter; he was almost ten years old at the time.
In my blog post today at Writing Wranglers & Warriors, a blogging site primarily made up of writers of differing genres and interests, I write a Tribute to Pets, including Cody and Sage, the blind springer spaniel my husband and I were blessed to have for more than ten years. Both Cody and Sage are characters in my inspirational dogs books and stories, and both have positively impacted people's lives, including my own. I hope you'll stop over at the Writing Wranglers site and perhaps remember the pets who have touched your heart and positively impacted your life.
