Bobby said...

Dakota looked so beautiful, and what a good job your friend did of the photo.
I am sure like ours who died one at18 years old and one 17 we have good memories of them then twinges of sadness. That is why I was just going to foster. Now grumpy Bobby has been here nearly 4 years so I dout if he will get a new home now.
Pip my wife could not let go so we addopted him.
Do remember the happy good times and smile for the good life you gave Dakota.
John.

Kea said...

Aw, she was so gorgeous and we're so sorry your hearts still ache. The mom just read recently on another blog that you never get over the loss, you just get used to the absence. That was a good way to put it.

We're sending you purrs of comfort today...And we had just wanted to thank you for coming to Derry's birthday party, didn't realize this was such a sad anniversary for you.

(((Hugs))) and kitty kisses.

Kea said...

Sorry...it's Derry (and Nicki) from Fuzzy Tales, we didn't realize we were commenting under our mom's account.

A few woo tears are falling as we remember beautiful Dakota...

FiveSibesMom said...

I have such tears in my eyes reading this beautiful pictorial tribute to Dakota. She was just gorgeous...I know how your hearts must break thinking of her...she will always, always be in your hearts and she knows how much she was loved in her forever home at the Rainbow Bridge. It's so unfair they can't be with us through our lives. Their time here is truly just too short. Thinking of you...
