Cody
6/13/1998 - 7/30/2014Our beloved Cody died on July 30, 2014. He was an amazing friend who did not know he was a dog -- and after a while, we forgot too. Cody, you lit up our lives for 16 years. Thank you. We can’t imagine how it would have been without you. We will always love you..Sharon KliwinskiArlington, VirginiaAugust 3, 2014

Oh Cody - many months ago your soul moved away from us. But you are always here. It's been many years since our Bruiser departed, and I still encounter him in my dreams; and every one in a while, I think I see him in the house. May you and your memory keep Sharon company into this new year, and all those to follow.
Love,
Deb

A late entry.. Sharon, you and Cody have been in my thoughts and prayers. I know he is in a happy place, free of the pain of old age and watching down on you with those warm, big brown eyes. I expect that one day we will all be together again with the special beings we call "pets" , the furry ones who have stolen our hearts! Cody always gave an extra warm and happy presence in your home, such a good match, the two of you, and both luck to have had each other-the unconditional love was everywhere!. I'll always think of Cody as that majestic dog, full of smiles and love, a genuine peace-maker-I always felt instantly calm around Cody. May you enjoy your new home as much as you did here on Earth, Cody! Peace and warm days in the sun. My deepest sympathy to you Sharon-sending many hugs and memories-Love always,CarolCarol DiSalvo - October 2, 2014
So many wonderful words written about Cody. He was our gentle giant, part bear, part lion – such a handsome boy. His presence was so big, it took a village to love and care for him. I’m so grateful for so many neighborhood walks, moon sightings and quiet time to sniff bushes, solstice drumming circles, friend- food gatherings, dog washing and trimming afternoons, NJ trips, and adventures to Turkey Run and Fort Smith Park. He loved his people, especially Justine, Natasha, Cookie. His ears would lift at the mention of their names. Later on Sharon became his touchstone, his Alfa mom. He always knew where she was every minute even when he didn’t see so good. He used to wait for her to come downstairs in the mornings. She took such good care of him…. Braving winter weather to grill him chicken or salmon, taking him to NJ for every family gathering, creating new recipes when he got bored with his food, building him ramps and giving him some great and not so great hair do’s. I claim him too, we were pals documented by the way he used to sit on me when I was on the floor or when he'd do his little "happy to see you" dance when I'd come over.. I miss him so much and feel so lucky to have had such an amazing buddy. I miss my Cody-o.Jane Moore - August 26, 2014
Sorry Cody is gone, he will be missed. But he had a wonderful life because of his wonderful people. We're glad he got to visit the shore house and play on the beach, and lay down right in the middle of the tiny kitchen floor and take up all the space. He was a good dog and we're glad we got to know him. Love, Kirsten and Joe.Joe & Kirsten Kliwinski - August 25, 2014
MY DEAR FRIEND SHARON---I FEEL THE PAIN.

SO SORRY

Our family will miss Cody lots! He was a very special dog. I really enjoyed all my walks with him for those couple years before you retired, Sharon, and I took over the job from my daughters. Those were the days when Cody walked me...he could have gone for miles, sniffing every darn bush and interesting patch of ground! Other dogs sometimes got confrontational and barked at him, but he stayed composed. He was always sweet and friendly. So glad I experienced the pleasure of his company.Laura Smith - August 17, 2014
Cody was a good friend to all, and it was a privilege and pleasure to know him. Sharon, you and everyone who wrote here have given him a lovely tribute.Lindsay and Linda McClelland - August 10, 2014
Cody, I'll miss you! Love, CookieCookie Bailey - August 9, 2014
Shar, how lucky you were to have your boy for all those years. Doesn't make it any easier to lose such a treasured friend but it leaves you with even more memories to hold in your heart. In sympathy, GayleGayle Gavin - August 8, 2014
Shar, I am so sorry to hear about Cody. What a wonderful dog he was. I remember when we brought over our beloved Sadie and Cody was just a pup but he let Sadie lead the roost. He was great company to everyone he met. Live you guys.Mari Itzkowitz - August 7, 2014
Wow, what a dog. No. More than a dog. A sentient being who brought his love and life to Sharon's and the family and everyone who came to visit. Coty was part of every occasion and event, dinner party, drumming party. Nothing rattled him or phased him. He was the definition of calm and peace. He was all about people and play. Even when he was under the weather he seemed to bring calm and peace to those of us who knew he wasn't feeling his best. We quite simply loved you Coty baby. Now it's time for play and heavenly tennis balls. Go get 'em. We'll love Sharon for you.Margaret Clay-Bocchichio - August 6, 2014
So sorry to hear about the loss of your good friend.The grief is just the same for anyone who is such a big part of your life.Animals give you so much love and want nothing in return.He will be dearly missed and remembered for his unconditional love.

So sorry to hear about the loss of you golden: I lost my golden on 06/14/14 and we miss him so so much, wow you were lucky to have him for 16years, mine was only 11, and was diagnosed with cancer.karen michelson - August 6, 2014
Pat, so sorry about Cody's passing. We remember when he visited our house here in Yardville. He was a very handsome, gracious guest and we just loved him. Let's face it, he was a true Kliwinski. You meet them, they befriend and love you, and you hold them close to your heart. May his spirit live on with You, Jane, Cookie, Justine and Natasha. Don't be surprised if you think you see him scoot by somewhere in the house. It'll probably be him telling you he's ok and still kind of with you.
Love, Mary and Jim Limone

Cody, your warm greeting always brought a smile and joy to my heart. Your youthful spirit and love for your family will be missed. I will miss you dearly my friend, and will never forget our happiness together. Rest in peace.Marta Laura Murtha-Garcia - August 6, 2014
Ohhh Cody-Odie!! You were indeed a handsome boy and gentle giant, and I'm so glad you were in Sharon's life, and she in yours. I loved taking walks with you, Sharon and Jane and I could tell you were so loved and cared for. Four! Four tennis balls!! That is just a hoot! I am sure you are romping about, and a piece of you is in Sharon's heart and her in yours. My heart goes out to you Sharon~~I know you miss him dearly. What an honor it was to have him in your life, and he was the luckiest dog to have all the love, companionship and gentle care that you all gave him. You have done right by him. Love and hugs, Sue, Sam and Eddy.Sue Jennings - August 6, 2014
Cody was a huge part of my life, in fact, he was around for over half of it so far. He was just the best dog anyone could have asked for. He was so well behaved and calm, and even traveled abroad with us. I always loved playing with him, especially tug-of-war with his rope toys, where he would growl. That was always funny since he NEVER growled at anyone besides in that playful moment. He was always full of love, patience, and gentleness. We will all miss him (and already do). He'll be forever remembered. Love, JustineJustine Seas - August 5, 2014
What a sweet boy Cody was. I'm so glad I got to say goodbye to him. He wagged his tail when he woke up and realized I was there. I will miss Cody.Lisa Gilley - August 5, 2014
What beautiful words spoken about beautiful and gentle Cody. I will miss laying beside him on the floor with my head on his side listening to him breathe as I stroked him.... So very loved!Azalia Ramos - August 5, 2014
