Dakota 1996-2009I’m sorry but I am just thinking of the right words to say. I know they don’t sound the way I planned them to be. But this is all I know. Dakota has passed away. She was with family and friends at the time.¬†She was 13 in dog years (91 in human years). Dakota, Kota, Moda, Pumpkin, Dog, Daky, Beagle of Music, Sweetie, and all the other nicknames that were created over the passed years will forever be in my mind. It saddens me tremendously that I could not be in Texas to say my final goodbyes while she was still here. She was always there for me. When I was sad, crying, she would always walk over to me and lay next to me — to comfort me. I wish I could have returned the favor this one last time. Before I left Texas, I sat with her on the floor. She laid next to me with her head on my thigh, looking at me with her deep brown eyes. I looked down at her, pet her head, and said she was a good dog and that I would be back soon. I did not realize that she would be the one that was not coming back. I know it was the most annoying thing for over 10 years, but I wish she could have greeted me one last time when I walked in the front door. I guess that is selfish of me. Bye Kota, I miss you — you will always be remembered.
