Cody update

From the NH Pathways to Hope Web site, concerning the young black Lab in training to be a service dog who was struck by a car the other day:
Cody had his orthopedic surgery on 1/15/09 to repair his broken front left leg and everything went very well. He was released from the veterinary hospital this afternoon and is now in foster care. Cody will be on strict crate rest for 3 months and will receive regular check-ups and X-rays to monitor the progress of his leg, as it heals. Everything will be done according to his attending veterinarian’s instructions. The outlook for Cody’s future is bright and we expect him to fully recover. Cody has had a slight career change and we are planning to have him become the Ambassador for the NHPTH program, after he is fully recovered.

People, from across the country, have been very generous and their donations have allowed us to pay for Cody’s medical treatments, as well as his follow up care over the next few months. Many thanks to everyone who sent Cody good wishes, prayers and support. Thank you again to Tracy, the Good Samaritan who stopped to help Cody last Monday night. Thank you to the staff at CrossRoads Animal Hospital in Londonderry who stabilized Cody immediately after his accident. Many thanks to the entire staff at CAVES for their dedication, compassion and care for every patient who comes through their front door, including Cody.
Without all of these people, who in some way, helped Cody in his time of need, Cody’s future would not be as bright. A big wag and a smile from Cody and his big brown puppy eyes.
