A Tribute to Bodie Sanderson:  What He Taught Us

A Tribute to Bodie Sanderson: What He Taught Us

For those of you who frequented our office, you know Bodie was a daily presence there.  Now that he’s gone, Cole will carry on the tradition of official ‘office greeter’ solo, but there is a definite sense something’s just not right.  Cole senses it, as we all do. After 10 years of his constant presence in our office and home, it’s hard not to still see that happy yellow lab shuffling down the hallway just looking for a person to lick or trash to riffle through. Bodie was one of those dogs that lived life large, nothing timid about him in personality, demeanor or actions.  From the moment we picked him up as a puppy from the kennel, he immediately and very enthusiastically started licking Jeff’s face, as if it was the most delicious face and taste he had ever had.  Those licks continued literally until the day he passed… as I said, Bodie lived life very large. So, as I remember him (and laugh out loud just about every time I do, aside from a few tears), I will reflect on the lessons he taught me during his very happy and full life.  Thought it might be a fitting tribute to share those lessons: WAKE UP HAPPY:  TODAY IS THE BEST DAY OF YOUR LIFE!  at least, that was Bodie’s mantra with life.  He had many physical issues, born with genetic dysplasias in all 4 limbs which basically means he had lots of issues with his elbows, knees and hips which required multiple surgeries and recoveries.  He never complained, as he knew we were there to help him be...
