Born Sept 2003

Passed on  March 7, 2016


She was the sweetest, most gentle, most intelligent puppy.

I loved her very much.  She will be missed terribly.

I know she will come greet me when it's my time to cross over.


I'm letting you know, in case you need to add her death to your records.


Thank you for sending Lakhota to me, the best gift given to me in my life.


Best to you always,




Teresa Zaccagno


So sorry Teresa … Another special soul passes on to those happy hunting grounds.


If you would like to send us pix, we would love to honor her in that special place we have on our owners forum for those that spirit has flown on. We all grieve (but celebrate her life) with you. Thank you for giving her a great loving life & home …. The entire AIDog family feels the loss with you -

Thank you for your kind words; they mean so much to me.  And thank you for the offer to honor Lakhota on the owners forum, along with the others who have passed on.  Attached is her photo (from last year).
The AIDog family is a special family - and I am grateful for the consolation.
Be well,
Peace & Love,
I'd like to share with you and the AIDog family... a Lakhota Prayer and the reason I named my puppy Lakhota (she was my friend and ally).

"-khota" means "friends" or Allies, 
which is the name of all 3 (Da, La,and Na).


Original Seven Council Fires 




Lakhota Prayer


Grandfather Great Spirit
All over the world 
the faces of living ones are alike.


With tenderness they have 
come up out of the ground.


Look upon your children that they may
face the winds and walk the good road to
the Day of Quiet.


Grandfather Great Spirit
Fill us with the Light.
Give us the strength to understand,
and the eyes to see.


Teach us to walk the soft Earth 
as relatives to all that live.

Such a beautiful, gentle expression in her eyes, and a smile too! So very sorry for your loss. Just reading these posts I'm in tears along with you. What is it about dogs? My tears for human loved ones have dried with the process of healing, but thoughts of my Golden Retriever, "24 Carat Gold Nugget" can still open the flood gates, and she passed 20 years ago this year. Our Kaposia (AID) turns one year old this month. The passing of your Lakhota reminds us all to treasure each day. Our canine family members are indeed a great gift from God. Funny you should mention her greeting you when it's your time to cross over. It's been my thought that that's who I' like to greet me...all the extended family dogs...Mups, Nugget, Sport, Brandy, Punkin, Max, Hunter, Sierra, Zeus, Freckles, Peaches, Muffin, Curly...all over the rainbow bridge. And then to re-unite with all the humans whose lives they enriched. Wishing you peace.

What a beautiful prayer Teresa gave us!  Thank you!  Pilamayaye


Tayamni and I whine for your loss and pray for Lakhota's safe crossing.  She has friends to meet up with there.
