In loving memory of Dakota 4/27/03-9/15/03
I brought Dakota home with me on July 3rd, 2003. She was a tiny ball of Pomeranian fluff. A Dodge Dakota was clearing the people in front of me the whole way home. The name Dakota just couldn't leave my mind.
I miss the way you greeted me, walking on your two back paws all the way across the room. How you got so excited to see me and couldn't hold it in, literally. I miss the way you would bark through the baby gate because you could not come in. And just to let you know, the purpose of turning the lights off and rocking the baby is to put him to sleep. Otherwise, I would never have wanted to keep you out of any part of my life. I miss hiding you in my backpack and going to the stores. Our walks to the park in the kids wagon was always fun for us both. Soon enough I found out our neighbors were planning to steal you anyway.
The days have gone by since your accident. I look around at your bed that I cant move, your toys I cant put away, and your dish that never got empty. Only time will heal the tragedy and though I will always mourn your sweet face and curious eyes, justice will be served and it wont be that you left this world without cause.
Because of you-
the city and neighbors have come together
a stop sign will be put in your place
children playing are more aware of danger
a life may have already been saved.
As far the one who took you away from me and our family.....
He will receive his justice soon for leaving the scene and speeding in our neighborhood, never to do it again.
I miss you and love you so much Dakota! Your name will still never leave my mind, just like the day I brought you home.
Love Mommy, Daddy, Alex, Briana, Jaiden, and Trenten.
