RIP, Niki


My Human would like to make this post:

Niki came to live with me a couple years ago after her previous human passed away. She was 12 at the time.

Last night Niki's health deteriorated. She had trouble walking and seemed not to be able to see. I monitored her health during the night and by morning she seemed to be back to the Niki I knew.

But when I got home from work and Niki wasn't at the window I knew that one way or another it was time for Niki to meet her previous human at the Rainbow Bridge. When I got in the house she was standing, but I could tell that she couldn't see. I offered her a treat, but she couldn't find it. I offered her a bowl of water, but she tried to bite it. So Niki and I took a trip to see Dr. Debbie. They are very nice there. They came out to my truck and sent Niki on her trip from it.

Fare well, Niki. I'm sure you and your previous human Don are catching up on lots of things.

Run free - without one of those stinkin' leashes Niki -

Make sure you tell Don what a wonderful life woo had in Kholumbia MO with Tubey and Khompany -

It takes a lot of love to let us go - that shows how special Tubey's mom must be -

Lots of hugs and nose licks to you, your pack and your mom. She did what was best for Niki even though it was difficult. I'm sure Niki is running free of pain and reunited with her previous human.

I am so very very sad. You had a long, wonderful life, with BOTH your families. May you now be with your former owner, and be happy and free again. And, may you meet your second mom, one day again.

This is very sad, and we are very sorry. We hope you all are finding consolation in one another. We'll be thinking of you.

The Army of Four said...

Tubey, please give your human lots of extra love for a while, OK? She made a really, really hard decision. Even though it was the right decision for Niki, it's still sooo hard.
Your human was so incredibly kind to take Niki in when she lost her person, and she was also kind last night to help her back to him.
God's blessings on you, your human, your pack ... and on Niki's spirit as she runs healthy and free.

Marley said...

Maybe a day or two of not yelling AS much at That Stupid Lex is in order...just to let your human process some things. She did the best thing possible for Niki, and Niki is in a very happy place now.

We're thinking about all of Woo,

We understand how hard it is to make that decision to help her to the bridge. Find comfort in knowing that Niki is running free and can see clearly now.
