Dakota got a new friend about 7 years ago. His name is Bear and he is a Maltese.
When the dogs first met Dakota was nice to Bear. Knowing that Dakota didn't play well with others, this was a surprise. They now tolerate each other.
Dakota misses Bear when he goes for grooming appointments, and greets him when he gets home. Other than this display of affection, Dakota doesn't have much to do with Bear.
