While we asked all of staff “If you were a dog, what breed/mix would you be and why”, we didn’t have to ask Cody this question.   Anyone that knows Cody, knows that Cody would be a Pug.   Cody’s wardrobe includes an impressive variety of pug shirts and pug socks.  Much like a Pug, Cody is attentive and clever, serious but with a laid-back attitude.
