As a husky, Cody tends to kiss first and ask questions later. This makes him the world’s worst watchdog! Every stranger he sees is just a friend he hasn’t met yet.
We live in an apartment building, which provides Cody with a rich collection of friends. He loves the neighbors with the three kids across the hall as much as the older lady who lives next door. He adores our property manager and has overcome his fear of the vacuum cleaner so he can be close to Ken.
He has lots of doggy friends, as well. Maggie, the red-haired hound mix, is a special friend we walk with every day. Sebastian, our property manager’s rowdy, white Lab, is a great wrestling partner. Jasmine, an older black lab, loves to chase him around.
Watching Cody interact with various people and dogs has taught me how to love others. I have learned not to judge others by their appearance, but by their heart. He has taught me how to truly “love my neighbor.”
