Article writen by Heidi Ganahl

I read an article about a guy in Florida who takes his Chocolate Lab Cody to work with him every day at a BP Gas Station.  Cody hops up to the drive thru window and greets everyone.  The story explains how everyone drives up in a foul mood but drives away with a smile on their face.

I started thinking to myself, how would my life change if I was able to be greeted by a furry friend at all of the stores I stop in during the day living my life?  I smile just thinking about it and hope that one day it will become more common.  Pets make our lives so much better and there are a lot of people in the world that don’t know amazing fact this yet. 

If Cody the BP station helper in Florida is making the customer’s smile, I wonder how many of them decided to research adopting a pet that very same day?  I really do think that having people exposed to the amazing power of happiness a pet exudes will help to reduce pet overpopulation long term.

What I would love to know is how do you help people on a daily basis feel just a bit more happy?

Here is the article about Cody, I promise that this is my way of making you smile today by sharing it with you!


The Health Department in Florida came in and ruined Cody’s time by asking him to leave the facility.  Now he has to stay home with his other pet siblings.  I think that there should be a bit more flexibility but the premise of my post remains the same, I hope that more store owner’s will consider making their stores pet friendly so that I can get some puppy love during my errands or even bring my pups with me when I am out and about.
