This is a well overdue story but we are so proud to have Coda that I thought
better late than never to share our story.
We adopted Coda in February of 2009 shortly after we had to put our beloved
Labrador, Annie, down. We had Annie for 15 years so her absence was definitely
felt by all of us. Her void was especially felt by our beagle, Jesse, who had
never lived a day without a canine companion. Of course, Jesse was 14 so a
rambunctious puppy might not have been her first choice of a solution but she
soon accepted Coda and all of her "youth"!
We knew Coda was special because she was born on Christmas Day AND because we
found out we were expecting another child shortly after she arrived to live with
us! Our other son was 8 at the time so what better practice to get back in to
parenting than to get a puppy! Coda bonded with us immediately and when little
Beckett arrived, she was the ultimate big sis. They are true buddies now.
Jesse joined our Annie almost a year ago and I have been looking for the perfect
match for Coda ever since. Our sincerest thanks to ABTCR for bringing Coda into
our lives. We look forward to our next journey with one of your rescues.
