Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Former North Dakota Senator Kent Conrad is in mourning the loss of a beloved pet.

His dog Dakota has died from complications of fighting lymphoma for two years.

The bichon frisé was a fixture on Capitol Hill, since its adoption in 2008. Conrad picked up Dakota from a rescue shelter when the dog was 10 years old.

Dakota was popular in Washington, dubbed the 101st Senator by some.
