Cody and the Pup. Our Cody, a nine-year old husky/malamute, is a great friend to both Alice and me. We found him at the San Francisco SPCA around eight years ago. When he was young, he ran like the wind and kept us anxious as he always seemed to be chomping at the bit to take off. Now that he is a senior, Cody has slowed considerably. We recently visited Alice’s good friend, Marisa. She has just adopted Vladimir, a nine-week old husky mix. For the first hour, the pup could not get enough of Cody. It was like, he saw him as a big brother or even a dad. Soon, Vladimir got tired and both Cody and the Pup fell asleep for a brief time.
