~ Ange and Koda ~
A few years ago, Ange adopted Koda, a sweet doggo, who has had a huge impact on her and her family. Koda has been by Ange’s side through thick and thin and have formed a very special bond.
At a young age, Ange’s daughter, Skyla, was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. This was an incredibly difficult time for them. However, having always wanted a dog, Ange decided that once Skyla finished treatments, they would adopt a pup.
At that point in time, Ange heard of a litter of puppies looking for a home. After showing Skyla the photos, they were in love. They booked a visit and a small puppy with two different coloured eyes ran right up to them. Three weeks later, he was welcomed into his forever home and named Koda.
Looking after Skyla and a new puppy was certainly an adjustment, but seeing just how happy Koda made Skyla made it worth it to Ange. He helped keep up her mobility, even on days when it was difficult. Above everything else, each day he provided Skyla with unconditional love and endless joy, despite her health.
Not long after adopting Koda, however, Skyla sadly passed away. This was devastating for both Ange and Koda. Losing her daughter took a huge toll on Ange. Thankfully, Koda was right there for her. He encouraged her to leave the house and get fresh air, he provided her with hugs and was just a great companion during this difficult time.
Koda loves his humans and constantly brightens their day. He can often struggle with meeting new dogs. When he was young, he was attacked by roaming dogs and, understandably, struggles to trust unknown dogs. Despite being anxious at times, Koda has a heart of gold and just wants to share his love and happiness with his humans.
After long days, Ange and Koda love being in each other’s company. He always snuggles with her in the mornings and enjoys lots of hugs and pats. One of his favourite things to do is play fetch, of which he would happily play all day, every day. He also likes going for ‘sniffaris’. When out walking, he loves sniffing everything he passes and leaving pee-mails for his doggo friends.
The impact that Koda has had on Ange is incredible. He has been by her side through everything and has brought so much more love and joy into her life. They share such a beautiful bond that will only continue to flourish.
