Farewell Niko!

We cannot measure the love we feel for our pets these beautiful creatures with gentle souls. They are a constant comfort to us.
This beautiful dog, Niko
was my best friend's best friend. Yesterday she said goodbye to him.
 He passed quietly in his sleep. For 15 years she was blessed to have him.
For all that he gave, he asked nothing in return save a daily walk, a belly rub and love.
He will rest easy knowing that he left his family well loved and enriched for having known him.
He may be gone but he will never be forgotten; leaving behind memories of kindness, warmth and gentleness of spirit.

“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”
