Lord, you have embraced a good friend and loving companion. While we mourn what we have lost, we do celebrate what we had...and in saying goodbye, we renew our pledge to love and care for any creature you entrust to us for its time of life.
Thank you, Lord, for the joy Dakota gave us all and for making it possible for us to have made this friend. Lord, be with the family as they continue to grieve.
Godspeed, Princess Dakota. Wear your silver harness and run free in the winds of Heaven. And each time we feel the cool breeze blow by, we will know it is a soft nuzzling kiss from you.
