Early in his relationship with his beloved Border Collie, Codi, author Jeff Maziarek had a sense that "beneath the fur" there was a sentient being with far deeper insights into life than commonly thought. And, in their last year together some mystical events completely confirmed the accuracy of that feeling. In Codi's Journey, Jeff describes these events within the context of an inspiring and heartfelt narrative illustrating the very challenging circumstances Codi faced during the final 12 months of her life.

To provide even greater depth into Codi's story, Jeff details how this feisty canine became a part of his family. He likewise shares many engaging anecdotes about her personality and several of her more memorable adventures over the years. A charming photo gallery with 42 captioned images further brings Codi to life, featuring snapshots from the night she arrived as a 10-week-old puppy to the final week of her life. Any dog owner who has ever shared stories about the "humanness" of their pet, as well as any adult who has ever loved and lost a beloved animal companion, will surely find this work captivating.

Author's Personal Note: My foremost intention in telling this story is to share two key messages. First, that our pets (dogs in this instance), actually are "sages with fur" who have a far greater understanding of life (and us) than commonly thought. Second, that it's perfectly normal to feel intense and long-lasting grief at the loss of a pet. This is particularly so when that animal served as an adult's primary companion for many years.

In this regard, I sincerely want any reader who also has experienced such a loss to know that someone truly does understand the sadness and emptiness they felt when their beloved pet passed on. Finally, it's my hope that such readers come to understand how important it is to fully process their feelings of grief by really feeling them rather than keeping them locked up inside.
