One great thing about being a dog owner is that you are instant friends with all your neighbors who are also dog owners. Rita is one such neighbor. She always has time to stop, chat, lend me a book, give Gin a treat. I saw this memorial in the Fuchsia Dell this morning. Cody was a real sweetie. He lost a leg to cancer more than a year ago and wore a "Live Strong" collar. He died on Monday.
