|July 4th weekend 1995 I was taking a listing on a house. When I got
home there was a fox looking creature in my bedroom. My husband had found
her in the middle of the street. Later I saw a flyer from her owners reporting
her lost. I checked out where they lived and found out they kept
this 5 pound pommie OUTSIDE in a huge dog house and never brought her inside.
Also this was not the first time she had gotten out. We decided she was
not going back there!!
The tiny ball of fluff became Dakota. She was so sweet everyone
called her princess powderpuff. As it turned out being the smallest
she was also the loudest and "talked" alot. She was a very picky eater
and her favorite thing to eat was turkey. I used to put her on a raft in
the pool and she would float around. Whenever I was washing the floor (hands
and knees) I was on her level and she would follow me and play. She loved
her squeaky toys and hung out with her brother Dallas. After Dallas lost
his sight Dakota took over his job of chasing the cats when they ran by
playing. She was so loving and sweet . For those who don't know,she wouldn't
eat and the vet removed her teeth because they were bad, her heart was
enlarged. She survived the surgery but we lost her 3 days later. When we
rescued her she was 3 and when she left us she was 12. I still miss my
Kota so much it hurts. She was such a fluff baby.
