Goodbye Dakota Bear

This was Dakota Bear Horton....

He was a Great Dog, a family Dog, a caring Dog, a Loving Dog.
Madison's crawling partner. (Yes, he would CRAWL too- Hubby taught him that)
Madison's "hearder" while she learned to walk.
Madison's Nurse while she healed from her broken leg.
Madison's "circus trick" Dog. (aka would CLEAR the 3 Foot baby gate & a 3 foot baby Madison EASY)
A well trained (born trained) Dog. **He always stayed in the yard, by our side, or in the truck**
He was our First Dog.
We got married, had our first baby 15 months later, bought our first house 4 months after that and added Dakota to the family that same month. He was just a few months old then. So Madison and Dakota grew up together. He will be missed. He was only 6 years old, and no where near his end. But whatever happened to him, we hope he didn't suffer.

I'm so sad for you. That isn't right to lose him at 6. What a beautiful red merle he was! Aussies ARE the best...hands down.

Some day in the future, we will get another Aussie. But Dakota will be missed much. These pics make me tear up because he really did grow up with our daughter. :o(
