#14 – Rest in Peace, DFIR Dog

Digital Forensics / Incident Response

Today’s post is an incredibly tough one to write. This morning my buddy, my best friend, my DFIR Dog passed away. He lived a great life and was loved by so many. Whenever I would work from home, he would lovingly announce his presence on conference calls, show his face on video calls, and would stare at the computer screen helping me analyze evidence. He was to be the topic of my presentation for next year’s DFIR Summit. (Who knows, maybe I will still do the presentation — bring tissues!)

Cody was rescued at 3 years old and lived to be just shy of his 13th birthday. He enjoyed being goofy, helping people, going for walks, being my anxiety companion, and being loved on by the neighbor kids and my nieces and nephews. He was incredibly smart and knew exactly how to get his way, most days. He passed peacefully in my arms at home, surrounded by love and comfort. May he rest in peace and run wild and free. Mama loves you, buddy.
