Hi guys! Some of you may already know our story, but some may not. Dakota Jane was my beloved 3 year old German Shepherd. We were forced with the decision to put her down on June 14, 2017 or otherwise known as one of the most difficult days of my life. Dakota was my very best friend and came into my life when I was struggling to make sense of a Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. She was crazy, full of energy and above all, loyal as could be. She loved hiking adventures, playing with her ‘Chuck It’ and taking walks. I still struggle with the fact that she had to leave earth too soon, but it was the best decision for her. Dakota was unofficially diagnosed with Lupus, and her health went down hill fast. I miss her everyday. Now, I will be turning my sadness into campaigning for Peppertree Rescue in honor of Dakota Jane. I will be running the Furry Fun Run 5k on April 21.
