Likes: To be working out in public. Whether it was on a theater stage or in a convelescent home or any of the numbers of other work places.. Nokie was on his toes and ready to go!
Pet-Peeves: He disliked having his picture taken. I never did get a really good picture of him.
Arrival Story: I raised Nokie for Canine Companions for Independence. He was released from the program two weeks before he was to graduate. The reason being, he was too protective.
I was give first option of having Nokie as my own dog, and of course, I was thrilled..
Bio: Nokie went on to become the canine half of a Social/Therapy Dog team (with me being the two-legged half of the team.)
His sudden death from what our vet thought was a blood clot to the brain is still something that is hard for me to talk about in depth..
