In Memory Of: Dayton

On January 26, 2004, a little chocolate beagle was born in Floresville, Texas. Two months later, I’d drive out to Floresville to meet that tiny pup and fall head over heels. I’d name him Dayton and he would be the best friend I’ve ever known.

On May 1, 2015, I took Dayton to the dog park and then to McDonald’s for a burger. Later that day, Dayton went to heaven. After 11 years together, he saw me through law school, the Bar Exam, my first job as a lawyer, marriage, the purchase of my first home, divorce, and everything in between. They say a dog loves unconditionally and I couldn’t agree more. Dayton took a little piece of my heart with him. Cancer sucks, but he put up a hell of a fight.

Dayton, I hope you’re pain free now. I know I’ll see you again someday at the Rainbow Bridge.
