Hi

Given his age and the fact it sounds bronchial, would get Cody to a Vet ASAP for treatment before it develops in to something more like Pneumonia.

Ditto Doug and Mary, could need antibiotics for this and given his age, better not to wait to see if he recovers on his own. Kennel cough is doing the rounds here at the moent but that's a different sounding cough and they can bring up a lot of phlegm too with that. After you've taken him to the vet, make the old lad as comfy as possible, lots of treats (if he'll eat them, chicken is good) and cuddles :)

Definitely want to get him to the vet as soon as possible. My last dog was 10 when she had the same thing and it turned out she had an enlarged heart.Wish you the best.
