Say Hello to Dakota, our Pet of the Day


Meet Dakota, a four years old Labrador mix who was adopted from a local humane society as a pup. She still thinks she is full Labrador when it comes to fetching sticks!!!

Her human Doug Owen of Banner Elk, NC tells the rest of the story…..”In November 2009 I went through a full knee replacement to fix degenerative arthritis I developed in my right knee at 30. By 40 I could no longer do many things I enjoyed as my mobility was completely gone. Dakota has now been on five backpacking trips and numerous hikes with me as I have started to once again enjoy activities I had given up for 12 years. She is a loving, trusted friend who is there to help me and enjoy our amazing environment we live in here in the NC mountains.”

Pleased? You ask? I am overwhelmed at the incredible response for my Dakota!!!! Words cannot even express how much this has meant to me and the support and love was just amazing. I really was not prepared for that type of response and I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You do have a wonderful idea with We Are Pet Nation and I know you are headed in the right direction. I look forward to seeing your site grow and expand over the next year.
