Dakota my beautiful golden passed 1 day prior to his 13th birthday. I had him since the day he was born. I am still grieving the loss of this beautiful animal and my best friend ever. After he was gone our house was so quiet I couldn't stand it. I realized that my Dakota followed me every minute of the day and after he was gone I realized I'd had a running dialog with him every step of the way. I have had animals all my life but never was there an animal that took such a big chunk of my heart. He was my everything. I know that is has passed to Rainbow bridge, thank you God for giving me a rainbow the next day. He is where he needs to be. I miss your smiling face Dakota and know I will see you one day beyond Rainblow Bridge. You were the best companion, snuggly,happy dog anyone could ever have in the whole world. Dog spelled backward is God. I Love you.
