Arrival Story:
We had been looking for another dog after we lost Dixie (our 9 year old german shepherd) to cancer. After having been to see 3 or 4 dogs, we found Nikki on an local animal rescue site and went to go see her. Nikki was the only dog Zeus didn't growl at. In fact, he actually started to clean out her ears! Everybody seemed happy so we decided she was the one Zeus wanted. When it was time to go, we opened the door to my truck and she jumped right in the front passenger seat without any prompting. I'd like to think she was saying "I'm ready to go home!" The DCO didn't know much about her history, or if he did, he didn't want to tell us. She has proven to be quite the escape artist and is terrified of thunderstorms to the point of total panic. When we were contacted a year later by the DCO, he was surprised to hear that "we still had her". She has done well with some basic obedience work and lots of love. Why wouldn't I keep her?

I had to say goodbye to my beautiful girl on 3/14/14. She had a cancerous lesion on her spinal cord that was weakening her hind quarters and had spread to her brain. She had a rough start in life, her teeth were worn down to her gums from trying to get out of something and also came to us with heart worm. We had a good life together after that, I hope she thinks so too.

Forums Motto:
and she's off and running!

with out you. It seems like forever. I miss you so much. I know you have come to visit me, not only in dreams, but I feel your presence so strongly
sometimes I think you are right beside me and I reach down to pet you and talk with you. I am so thankful for those moments. I am fostering kittens again, for the first time since you and Zeus have been gone. I know the kittens would love you and I picture them climbing over you and playing with you, and even taking a nap on you like other have done. It breaks my heart that you are not here to have a great influence on them and teach them that dogs can be their friends. I know you and Zeus are together and happy and healthy again because you show me in my dreams. But I miss you both horribly and think about you often, especially when Kirra and I are walking in all the places we loved to go together.

"No matter what anybody says about grief and about time healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath is taken."

I love you,

"Now Comes The Night" Rob Thomas

When the hour is upon us
And our beauty surely gone
No you will not be forgotten
No you will not be alone

And when the day has all but ended
And our echo starts to fade
No you will not be alone then
And you will not be afraid
No you will not be afraid

When the fog has finally lifted
From my cold and tired brow
No I will not leave you crying
And I will not let you down
No I will not let you down
I will not let you down

Now comes the night
Feel it fading away
And the soul underneath
Is it all that remains
So jus slide over here
Leave your fear in the fray
Let us hold to each other
Till the end of our days


A letter to Nikki

Dear Nikki
It's been hard Zeus has been gone. Hard for you, hard for me. As a good friend suggested, it was harder on you than I thought. You and Zeus were good together. He taught you to play and swim, and he was your strength, your guide. When he died, your fears came back and you hid again. I tried the best I knew how to get you to join the family again because I knew you were depressed and I didn't want to lose you too. It took bringing home Kirra to do that. I'm sorry I didn't get you a friend sooner. I thought your weight loss was from being depressed, but you kept losing weight even when you started eating more. The vet said you had a spinal cord lesion that was making your back legs weak and making you lose weight. The acupuncture worked for a few weeks, but when you started walking in circles Wednesday night, and couldn't hold yourself up on Thursday, I knew it was time, you were struggling too much. So I tearfully made the appointment and on Friday morning you went peacefully to the bridge. I asked Zeus to come and be with you, and I know he was. He sent the mourning dove Friday morning to let me know. I saw her when I brought Kirra home from her walk. The dove was sitting at the top of the driveway, almost like she was waiting for us, then flew away. I haven't seen her since. So Zeus was there, waiting to help you over the bridge. I'm sure you were so happy to see him again. I hope you and Zeus, along with Dixie, Foxy, Keta, and Brandy, will come and get me when it's time. I hope it's soon. I need to be with my pack again.
I see you as being strong and healthy once again, and running like the wind with this magnificent pack and free from your fears. I will always see you coming out of your crate with a smile and a wagging tail to greet me when I came home from work.
I will miss you and love you forever Nikki.
My heart is breaking,
