Last Post for Kota

As some of you know Kota was our wonderful golden retriever. Dakota died yesterday. He was a happy and healthy dog up until about 3 weeks ago. A respiratory problem took him. Possibly an aggressive lung cancer. A vet visit a week ago sent him home with new food and some meds. It came on very rapidly. We are very devastated with the loss of our great companion.

I'll create a new user ID.

Sorry for your loss, Dave and Ann. Our miniature schnauzer Phoebe went all over the country with us, and was a valued companion and friend.

The holidays make the loss more profound.

Peace on Earth.

In my experience, the joy of life with a golden far outweighs the loss in their passing. My wife and I have been fortunate enough to have had two in our life. They are such great companions.

Sorry for your loss.

Very sorry to hear of your loss. For many of us, our pooches are practically our kids. Really hurts to lose them. I hope fun memories are a help to you.

The lifespan of a good dog like Kota is just too short.

Sorry for your loss Dave and Ann.

I'm sure he had great adventure in your family.

Maybe a rescue dog can join you after the holidays.
