Victoria City Council will find out Thursday night just how popular a four-legged fixture of Fort Street really is.
Cody, the golden retriever, is a fixture a Charmaine’s Past and Present but owner and pooch have been targeted by bylaw officers because Cody likes to lie on the sidewalk in front of the shop.
A change.org petition called “Bring Back Cody” has nearly 1,800 signatures on it.
Its creator, Ryan Painter, will make a presentation to mayor and council Thursday night.
People have signed the petition have logged in from the U.S., Germany and the U.K., even as far way as Uruguay.
Painter will hand over the petition and will make his presentation to council asking to give Cody a life time exemption from the leash bylaw.
