Quick Bio:
-part feral-deaf -dog rescue

February 14th 1993

He liked to hang-out in the front yard, sleeeeep, going for a walk, begging for pig-earzzz!

He hated being touched by his paws, clipping nails (!!!!! ouuuuu!!!), a shower, being teased by his little sister. And since December: The Little One (Jersey)

Favorite Toy:
Toys? what's that? ...he was long beyond that.

Favorite Food:
Pig Earzzz!!! and of couse people food...

Favorite Walk:
When he was still with us: Around the block with Mami and little sister. Since he's gone over the rainbowbridge: jump around the fields like a puppy :-)

Best Tricks:
Shake, speak, and "do the dance" when he lets us know he wants a goodie

Arrival Story:
When I got married to my dear husband, Dakota was already there :-) and he became my best friend!

Dakota has gone to sleep on 9/10; he was almost 13. It was time for him. He wasn't able to stand long enough to eat his food and we didn't want to wait until the day that he wouldn't be able to get up and get his water. He didn't like his pigears anymore either. We miss him a lot. His ashes are in a beautiful Mahagony Box with his picture laser engraved next to the fire place. Dakota was part wolf and when he "talked" he houled. He loved answering the Fire Trucks and watch TV with us. He was the biggest and most lovable old fart in the whole wide word.

Forums Motto:
Did someone mention food?

Hey Guys!

It's me, Dakota! Now, that I've crossed over, everything is good: no more muscle pain, I can ran all day long, I get only the best food and there are no little puppies that get on my nerves.
Sometimes I peak through the clouds and see my family at home. And I can see that beautiful black box next to the fireplace in our living room with my picture on it. I hope they're doing well without me.

Allright :-) gotta go and run!
Dakota, the Dude

P.S.: almost forgot: there's not hardwood floor anywhere!!!

Hello :-) it's me, hangin' in there.

First of all, it's pretty cool that the deadly heat seems to be over, finally. Man, it was hot a little while ago. And to make it worse, my people went on vacation for 10 (!!!) days in July and I had to stay home. Even Sheila and Jersey went somewhere else!!

Rene, our neighbor took care of me, but he didn't realize how bad it had gotten with my backlegs and mom hasn't informed him properly. So, he was almost at a point that he called my folks on their vacation because I wouldn't wanna come out of my doghouse and didn't really like to eat either. Well, I couldn't tell him that I missed mom and dad and even the puppy girls (...I hate to admit that though...) and when everybody was back I was again a happy dude.

Everybody has been back now for over two weeks and life is o.k. again. I love to come into the house in the evening and beg for my dinner. Mom even started to make breakfast for me instead of just one meal a day; she says that that might be better for my digestive system. Whatever, as long as the food is good :-)

By the way, the little monster, aka Jersey, gets very much on my nerves. She sometimes stands in front of my doghouse and barks and barks and barks at me. And I growl and show my teeths, but she doesn't stop. I don't let her nowhere near me or I bite her. She knows that. But she teases me. Sheila is much nicer, she doesn't do anything to me, not even barking.

Mom said that once I go to sleep forever that they will cremate me and put my ashes into a nice urne and put it next to the fire place in the living room. Cool. They will remember me forever. Dad might even get a little paw-print tattoo with a "D" or even my whole name. Maybe :-) I think they love me a lot.

Dakota-Dude, who's is now exactly 12 1/2!!!


Still hanging' in there :-)

Hi Guys!

Yep, I'm still around. And still love to do a lot of things. And mom thinks that as long as I am a happy dude, there's no way I'm going to doggie-heaven.

I love:
- my pig years
- my dinner with yummy stuff added, such as gravy or an egg or yoghurt
- laying in the grass in the front yard
- rubbing my nose in the pillow
- when mom and dad come home
- my cookie in the morning
- to try to catch a tennis ball; sometimes...
- sniff Sheila's and Jersey's butt
- marking the tree in the front yard
- to say "hi" to everyhone who walks by when I lay in the grass out front
- to say "hi" to the neighbors Leo and Rene
- barking at the neighbors
- watching TV with mom and dad
- licking their plates after dinner
- being pet for 5 seconds
- having my teeths brushed (not for the brushing but for the yummy toothpaste!)

Well.....you see? there's still a lot of stuff I like to do :-)

Dakota, the old dude
