This tee is a nod to TradeMutt’s heritage and Cody, the legend behind those famous dog ears that can be spotted in all of our prints.
Cody was a red cattle dog owned by Ed’s godfather for 17 years. In her time, she built 20 houses with him and was the kind of dog that would walk down three flights of stairs to collect a tape measure and bring it back.
After a car accident in 1996, she slept in the hospital car park for a week while her owner had hip surgery and the nurses took turns to keep her fed and watered. But, Cody managed to only escape with an infected ear that lost it nerves which meant it flopped down, and it was this floppy ear which would become synonymous with TradeMutt across Australia.
So, while the world lost Cody in 2010, her memory lives on through TradeMutt.
