How do I even begin to start explaining what dalton meant to me over the 17 & 1/2 precious years that I had him in my life, there's so much to say about him that I don't want to miss one detail of how special he was and how much I truly and dearly loved this dog right from the beginning.
Dalton was one of a litter of 3 born from our family dog trixie, I watched him come into this world as trixie gave birth to him and after a few days of watching him grow a little more I fell in love with him, he was Black and Tan and looked like the special one from the litter cause he looked so different from the rest, he was so cute and over the weeks of watching him play and get up to mischief with his brother and sister I just knew i wanted him to be mine, i named him Dalton, I had always liked the name from the film roadhouse when I was younger, Patrick Swayze played dalton, I always said if I had a boy I would name him dalton, well my first boy turned out to be my beloved dog so I named him dalton :)
Dalton came home to live with me at Galloway street when it was time for him to leave trixie and I just couldn't wait for him to be mine properly and to show him off to everyone, I had everything ready for him his little cute collar and lead and little bowls, all i needed was him to make it all so complete, i was so happy to have chosen this little bundle to be mine :) and was so proud to be his owner and never even gave it a second thought that one day he'd no longer be with me.
He was my special boy right from the start, I knew we had a bond like no other and he was what i needed in my life, i wasn't in a relationship and i had no ties, so i made the choice to have a dog and it was the best decision of my life, he would sleep in my bed every night and cuddle up to me, I loved his soft fur, his little wet nose, his sweet puppy breath, and his licks on my face to let me know how much he loved me, he was my special little friend, so loving, friendly and loyal I couldn't have asked for more, I just wanted him to be by my side always, and within months of being together endlessly I could see he felt the same way about me, I couldn't go anywhere without him being behind me, at my feet, or whining cause I was leaving him for a brief moment, he made me feel special cause he needed me and wanted me, who would have thought a dog could bring such joy and happiness to a persons life, but dalton brought all those things to my life and so much more, now I know why no-one understands, cause they never had the love, friendship & loyalty that I knew from having him in my life. It was pure and simple, he loved me and I loved him :) xxxx
