Ch. Golightly Dakota Sioux, SC
Cody is my big, charismatic, handsome guy. He's quite large,
and this size was evident at an early age. When he was five months
old, he was almost the height of his mom, and I knew this was going
to be one big hound. About that time I started joking to people that
I was raising this one for meat.
Cody was the first male dog I had.
If I'd known about the male capacity for adoration, I would have gotten a
male long ago. It's flattering to have a dog just gaze at you like you're
all they could ever want. It's not that the girls are not loving, but
they have other interests as well, while the guys can make you feel like
you are the center of their universe.
Given his druthers, he'd go everywhere with me, even if it meant he
had to spend most of that just waiting for me. But he has his own ideas
about where we should go and what we should do. He'll sit in the car
and refuse to get out when we return home if he thinks we didn't
have enough fun on that trip. He's got this quiet confidence about
life generally. He's very reliable. If he had opposable thumbs,
I'd let him drive.
Cody was Best of Opposite Sex, and won the stud dog class at the
1997 Greyhound Club of America Eastern specialty. The above photo is
the BOS win, and the home page has a picture of the Stud Dog win. He was also Reserve Winners
Dog at the 1993 Western specialty, and he holds a Senior Courser title as well
as being pointed in NOFCA open field coursing. He has four show champion
kids, three of which also have performance titles. A photo of Cody
illustrates the Greyhound in in the AKC's Complete Dog Book for Kids.
