Cody, My Love

I dedicate this post to the Love of My Life who has just passed
Leaving me for a better place in doggie heaven

Cody was a gift from daddy to mummy to keep her company during her 12-years stint as a housewife

During his early days, we never had much opportunities to take photos
When I was 17 and met cody for the first time
I picked him out from a furball of malteses in a showcase in this pet store
He just appeals to me and he’s different from from every other malteses in that furball

Still with swimmer legs, he couldn’t walk very well initially
but he grew really fast and was an intelligent bugger

A Pure breed maltese who at his heaviest, was just 2.4kg
We didn’t starve him or control his weight
He just eats very little, like me!

That was about the only time he had such long fur
The mum was getting frustrated with grooming his fur, so we kept it short for him ever since

He’s still very much a charmer
Tame, hyper, sweet and cuddly

We bought him his first luxurious bed
He stinked it up and he never got to sleep in it again =p

He’s dressed up as superheros coz my brother is just a Marvel Fan
so Cody was Cosplay-ed

Cody enjoyed being carried like a baby

all 4 paws up the sky and he can sleep like this

His new plaything and I got him to pose like this
Just like a baby on my lap hugging a toy

264_65320670180_9538_n

We make fun of him by putting him in a paperbag
I carry him in my longchamp bag with his head popping out like this
and walked the shopping in Jurong Point together

Then he started growing brown
He can’t stop licking his paws
The vet says that he’s too bored
nothing to do
hence he just plays with his paws

We were moving house at this time
Haven’t had the time to bring him to the groomer
So we tied up his bangs
to aid his sight
=p

NTUC gave a freebie
A plushie that looks like him
He was so afraid of it
Thinking we will love the plushie more than him
This is the first and only time he allows the plushie to be placed next to him

That greedy boy…
Guess what he saw that got him so excited

He needed to be right there in the middle of my school project
Loving the warmth of the lappie?

2573_140128370180_5071731_n

We finally moved to our new home
He enjoyed rolling himself on the cool floor tiles

He went back and forth checking out my new Ferragamo pumps

Yes, that pink table would mean I started working on Nailvibe

47693_10150266023000181_5559458_n

Always under my pink table watching me work

He never liked toys
He prefers playing with us

I would always be driving and he would sit beside me quietly…
responding to me calling out his name and asking if he’s comfortable

IMG00011-20100414-1921

He always shows me how comfortable he is

That’s his “throne” at home
A spare piece of sofa that came together with the main seater
He declared at as his

Anyone who sits on it, will be barked at

Towards the end of his days….
<warning, the photos below may cause you some discomfort>

His skin was deteriorating
He was more sensitive to food and getting allergy reactions from most dried food
He had to be consistently be prevented from biting himself and scratching the itch away

&

2 hours before he passed….

he stopped eating for more than 24 hours and his skin started to have larger open sores
His eyes was clouded consistently with tears
so much that he couldn’t open his eyes anymore
His legs shudder each time he tries to stand up
so he gave up trying
There was no poop, no pee for 20 hours

It was such a sad plight…
I couldn’t see him go
just couldn’t watch it happen…

I miss you still…
I love you like we’re family
We all still think you’re with us, just in a different way

Thank you for coming into our lives
~ Love ~
