Today we lost a very dear friend.... We will miss you Dakota

Pin It Now!

  Today our family faced a terrible heartache, my parents had to put down their dog Dakota, she was 10 yrs old and very sick but the boys have grown up with her most of their lives. It was the first dog they ever knew, which led them to have a love for animals, especially dogs. Dakota you will forever be in our hearts and know we will see you one day again. We will be sure to bring lots of treats. We love you forever and always my puppy you will be.

Just this side of heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable. All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigour; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing - they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body quivers. Suddenly, he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster. You have been spotted and when you and your special friend finally meet you cling together in joyous reunion never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face. Your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.
