Pomeranians and Angels 

Before Von DeBroux passed away in 2017, three days before her birthday, her husband, Len, promised that he would take good care of the couple’s little Pomeranian dog, Codie.

But on a cold winter’s night in January 2020, Len says he had a little help from above.

“I left … Codie out to do his last daily job,” Len said. “The temperature was –2 degrees below zero, and I never left him out more than a couple of minutes at a time, especially when it’s 10 p.m. and so cold.”

Len sat down in his recliner for a moment, and accidentally dozed off.

“Suddenly I heard, ‘Len, Len.’ My eyes popped open and I didn’t see anyone, but immediately I jumped up and ran to the door. It was now 10:37 p.m. and my little Codie was laying there not moving.”

Len quickly picked Codie up and brought him inside. He wrapped him in a blanket and held him on his lap. Codie suddenly started to kick his feet and jumped to the floor. Good as new.

“Thank God. For I know it was an angel that called my name to alert me for my little dog,” Len said. “It is now midsummer and my Codie is alright. Thanks be to God.”
