Jasper, our cat, LOVES our dog, Cody. She’s always nuzzling him and licking his ears. Cody doesn’t seem to mind nor give her the time of day. He is 15 years old and is growing quite a tumor on his backside which we think will be his demise at any time. Every day we get up and wonder if he’ll be alive. Some days he just wants to lie around and will not even come up the stairs. Other days, like today, he hiked for 3 miles on the trails above town with me and the other 2 dogs. (other two, yes, I know) We are taking care of Lola, Kate’s Sheltie, while Kate is studying in Prague.
