Good bye, old friend...

He went outside to take a nap in the sunshine this morning and just didn't wake up...

We'll miss you, Dakota T. Dog. You were one of the best soccer opponents I ever had...you could disembowel a stuffed animal in under 60 seconds and grin with delight when you found the squeaky bit in the middle...you were a puppy again in the snow and a wee girl's favorite companion. Thank you for being such a huge part of our lives. Rest in quiet peace.

May the sun always shine on your chosen nap-spot, Dakota. And may there be an infinite number of stuffed animals with unbreakable squeakies, too.

My condolences to you and your family, Dori.

I'm so sorry for your family's loss.

What is it about big dogs, that they turn into puppies again at a moment's notice?

This made me cry. I'm so sad for you. God bless you. Oh...and God bless Dakota, wherever he is.

He's a beautiful dog. I'm sorry for your loss.

We lost our first dog 2 years ago and it was only recently that we were able to get another dog. They really are family.

I wish you peace as you adjust to life without Dakota T. Dog, although he or she will always be a part of you and your family.

What a name - I love it! :)
