It’s a Dog’s Life
Cody the Register Dog’s career manning—dogging?—the front counter at a Clearwater, Florida convenience store has come to a tragic end, after he was sacked by the health inspector.
Times are tough all around but Cody, the friendly chocolate Lab from Clearwater, Florida, had hoped to beat the recession by finding work at his owner’s shop. Those dreams have been crushed after the health inspector (a traditional villain in any animal-centric story—remember Ratatouille?) decided it was a health risk. It wasn’t the most glamourous job in the world, but he did it with pride, greeting customers with a smile, brightening their day, and becoming a local celebrity. He will definitely be missed.
