Today, my dear friend Nellie McClure had to escort her venerable elder Golden Retriever "Cody" across the bridge. Cody was 15, near 16 years old.

Through a combination of Nellie and Bill's loving care, Kinaesthetics, pack walks and water therapy -- Cody lived a good long life. Longer than many Goldens ever achieve.

My favorite memory of Cody will always be the Ninja take-down of Tanuk the Malemute teenager at pack-walk.

We will miss him so much.
