Check out the love in those eyes...
Oh she did love the sun...and sitting on her Dad's lap
3.The girls and me
Out at the crag in Yorkshire. Buis-Bear is missing her big-little sister too.
This was taken just before we went to stay in Buis Les Baronnies for six months- note the tummies on Tim and Kodo, then check out the 'After' picture next.
We did loads of mountain biking and Tim lost a lot of weight but then we started climbing so Kodo wasn't doing as much exercise and it turned out she was eating our neighbour's dog's breakfast- he'd wait for her to trot down and let her eat most of his food. So, Tim and Kodo swapped tubby tummies!!
Our last trip abroad with her and Buis' first trip with us. So at least we all had one trip together and had a lovely time in the van visiting beautiful crags.
Kodo was never shy about cuddling up to strange men and they could never resist her.
As happy chilling as she was manically running around in the heather.
surely not! Kodo and Henry in Font politely asking for some of David's lunch.
Our last Xmas with her up in Northumberland- ironically it was the same place as the first we had with her. Little did we know it...
Kodo always knew how to make herself comfortable.
It's a bad quality picture that I took on my phone whilst I was driving (!) but it's so lovely and just shows how fond they became in the short year they knew eachother. Buis followed Kodo everywhere.
Recouperating after her knee op.
One of our favourite places, Margalef.
You could guarantee that if there was a hole to be found, Kodo would find it and head down it- sometimes even digging her way into tight squeezes- she'd have made a great caver.
Kodo and our big girl Buis waiting for their dinner. Fortunately, Buis hasn't developed the same 'love' of food that Kodo had! Kodo's wonky leftside of face is very evident here, due to her facial paralysis. That poor girl went through a lot but she never complained, she was a trooper to the end.
Kodo and Mum
Tim's picture here has really captured the essence of Kodo, in the cave at Pen Trwyn. outdoors with her family getting her tummy tickled, what could be better?!
Kodo and Neil Mawson
Doing what she did best, charming her favourite men to give her their food!
Now, after being outside (especially in The Peak), I would say being IN the bed was Kodo's second favourite place in the world. She lived for the moment our door opened in the hop and she'd charge right in and nose her way under the duvet. Within seconds you'd hear her gently snoring- heaven.
Kodo by Ben
This gorgeous picture was taken a few years ago by Ben Heason on a lovely day out in The Peak.
Kodo up at Monsant Spain
A bit of sun bathing at the crag when we were away in the van for three months. She was a fabulous companion.
Kodo with her ball
She just loved her toys but had a bad habit of decimating them very quickly. I think we kept the dog toy industry afloat the amount of squeaky toys Kodo got through.
She had to have a cruciate replacement which was a horrible painful time fer her and took six months of rehab, poor love. She was very brave though as always. When the vet operated, he couldn't believe she was able to walk. He said the ligament was literally hanging on by threads!
A lovely time in Scotland, relaxing after two longs days of long walks.
Tim and da pup
They loved a cuddle.
I always had to carry a blanket for her in winter, she was a right wimp in the cold, a bit like me really.
Tim's first picture of her in 2004.
the most wonderful dog we could have wished for.
