Dakota OTRB

This is a portion of what Dakota's mom wrote on her facebook 
page on July 10th.  Click the link below to read a most beautiful tribute to

My (our) heart dog, our smiley, sensitive, loving, silly, brilliant and oh so handsome Dakota left us yesterday to join his brother Cody who he was grieving terribly. Many of you knew Dakota had a tumor on his heart (beyond cruel for a dog with such a loving heart) and we feel Cody’s passing accelerated his cancer. Dakota transitioned peacefully, with dignity and was surrounded by love with me, Lenny our special Veterinarian, and the sweetest Vet Tech ever. I am grateful that for the month since he was diagnosed I was able to hold that face and kiss him, love him and I thanked him daily for being such an incredible dog.


Devoted brother
Always remembered for his loving nature
Kind K9
Only physically gone, his spirit lives on
Truly a friend to all creatures great and small
A blessing to have loved him


  1. I am so very sorry for the loss of Cody and Dakota, your best boys...so close together.
    May you find comfort in knowing they are together.
    Hugs Cecilia

  2. We are so sorry. Our hearts ache for Dakota and Cody's mom.

  3. How sad that both have left for the Bridge. Sending gentle hugs to their family.

    Though I knew them not, their names were seen all over Blogville and will be sorely missed... YAM xx

  5. our hearts are so heavy... he will be our friend for ever and ever... like his name says...

  6. We've been there. They only have so much time with us, we know that going in. When Kyla went, we rescued one of her kind. Not only would Kyla approve and feel honored, Kali has been wonderful.
