Jodi our Golden Retriever was our after school companion. She functioned as a living pillow as brother played Nintendo and her tail was blamed one or two times for knick knack breakage. Often she was the center of our latch key games. One short lived game involved brother and I taking turns jumping over her as she slept in the middle of the yard. As one leaped over, the other would yell out “Jodi!” which resulted in the dog standing up tripping the jumper.
