My Niki. I originally picked Niki, 10 months old, in May 1995 to be a companion for our dog Nero. Niki was a girl who had been returned three times to the shelter. Even though she did a lot of damage to the house, we wouldn't give up on her. After one and a half years of training, and a lot of love, Niki became the most loving, happy to please and kissing dog. She was my shadow. We will miss her greatly--10 years was not enough time. A tumor took my girl on September 22, 2005, away from us and her Nero too soon.

We hope she is happy romping around with our first dog, Sandy.
