|Nikki came to us as a foster dog from Golden Bond
Rescue. She was the oldest dog we ever fostered at
around 8~9 years old. We picked her up just before
Thanksgiving in 2008. She was a little scared at first.
But she bonded with Cinnamon very quickly. She also
bonded with us. Her eye were mesmerizing. She was so
sweet. She especially bonded with Cyn.
is was time to start looking for a forever home for her.
But by January we decided to keep her, so we became
Over the next several months she was teaching
Cinnamon some manners, and Cinnamon was teaching Nikki
to have more fun. Nikki really started to enjoy car
rides. If we said car, she would do the happy dance
(Cinnamon just runs to the back door).
When Nikki was very happy and would run over to you,
she looked like a small bear with her trot. So cute.
Nikki was more then just a older sister to Cinnamon.
Cinnamon hates fireworks and gunfire. She would go
basically crazy and shaking all over. We were down in
Disneyland at an RV park. The nightly fireworks were
going off. Cinnamon was under a table curled in a ball
and violently shaking. Nikki came over and curled around
her to console her. It was very touching.
Nikki loved the car, she loved the RV. She just liked
going places with her family and her best friend
Then on sad morning in October she woke us up at 5am
breathing strangely. We got up to figure out what was
wrong. 15 minutes later she stopped. We took her to the
Emergency vet, but she was gone. The vet stated it was
probably some sudden blood disease that would not have
been easily diagnosed. The day before she had been fine
and playing, but this day she was gone.
Cyn, Mark and Cinnamon were devastated. We only had
her for about 11 months and now she was gone. But we
know she had a great 11 months with use. We saw her get
happier everyday she was with us. We still miss our
Nikki-girl, her happy dance, her bear-prance, and most
of all her eyes. But we know she is waiting for us at
the rainbow bridge with Flame.
We love you Nikki!!
