Goodbye to a bloodhound buddy

We put down one of our bloodhounds today.

Dakota was the most amazing dog.  She worked for many police departments and had put lots of bad guys in prison.  She was ten and 3/4 years old today, which is really good for a bloodhound.  Unfortunately, she got an infection that turned into pneumonia and it was too much for her.

As much love as animals bring into our lives, they also bring pain.  On days like this it feels like it's not worth it, but I know it is.  Dakota made our lives happy and she made the world a better place by what she did.  It's hard to hold onto the good when something bad happens to us, but we have to.
