Arrival Story:
When my best friend (and Sophie's mate), Shadow, passed I adopted Nikita from a shelter at the age of 10 to be a friend for Sophie. She was one of the sweetest dogs I have ever known. Despite medical conditions and failing health, she never stopped showing affection to all around her.

Bio:
Nikita had an "adrenal sex hormone disease" which made her lose her coat around her neck and chest, but her spirit was so beautiful, it far overshadowed any physical decline.

Forums Motto:
In sweetness and light

Sadly, this wonderful girl passed on January 3, 2006, three days after her 15th birthday. Her health had been declining for months. Her walk had slowed, and she no longer wanted to eat. After many tests (including blood work, ultrasound and x-rays)I was told she most likely had cancer and any additional testing would have to be quite invasive. She had dropped 10 pounds and began to act like she was having some pain. At that point I was trying to get her to take a little nourishment every hour or so in the form of cream of wheat (the only thing she would take). I made the excruciating decision to assist her passing and my vet agreed to come to our home. Nikita and I took our last slow walk in the field in the morning and then she rested on a bed near the woodstove. I put on a calming CD with bird/nature sounds, lit candles and just sat and talked to her while the sedative she had been given allowed her to go to sleep and then the vet assisted her to pass over. I can't even write this without crying -- she is missed so much! Her sweetness and unconditional love will be remembered forever!
