Nikolai was my first dog. He was a red, blue and white salt n' pepper heeler. Niki was a rough and tumble dog who loved his mommy. When I was very ill with the flu, he at only a few weeks old, laid down on my chest and slept with me all night. He would do anything I asked of him, if only by an exchange of glances.

I still have his 3 year old sister Stolichnaya (Stoli for short) who is a red heeler. She and I miss his playful mischief very much.

This is his tribute, a tribute to a treasured friend who left us much to early in his little doggy life.
