My sweet, sweet Dakota

From the first day that you picked me, I loved you. As time went by I loved you more than anyone knew. You were my dearest friend. I was so proud of you.

You were a big golden retriever with the most beautiful face and eyes. You loved me so much and no matter who came in, after you went to greet them, you always came back to let me know, it's okay mom, I still love you the most.

I couldn't do enough for you. I walked you everyday, rain, snow, sleet or shine. You loved it and I loved being with you. You left me on Friday. I begged, pleaded and bargained with God to give me more time. You were just short of your 10th birthday.

I was never afraid or lonely when you were with me. You were the first thing I greeted every morning and the last thing I said good bye to at night. My heart is broken and I can't seem to find any peace without you, my sweet boy. I feel you everywhere and find you nowhere. All I do is cry. I can't look at your pictures or touch any of your things. It is too hard. How I miss you my bud.

I will get your ashes on Friday and a paw print and then I'll bring you home. One day I'll see you again but for now, my sweet Dak, run free, but stay close to me as I need to feel you near. I love you my crazy, adorable, loving boy. Momma is so hurt.

From your very best friend
Your Mom (So many hugs and kisses to my baby boy)
