I lost my best friend today. I'm not ashamed to say my best friend was a dog, an 11 yr old Chocolate Lab female, named Cody. She was my hunting partner, my constant companion, and was loved by everyone who knew her. She was a total sweetheart. She lost a 5 mo battle with cancer. I had to make that final decision... make that final drive to the vet's... carry her in, and leave without her. She was euthanized a few hours ago... she died in my arms.
