RIP Niko, my daughters angel of 15 years.
Our first and last day with Niko.

It’s been a tough year, but as many have said before, you know when it’s time. As you can see, she has been a warrior. My wife and daughter have given her an extra 1.5 years of good life through diet, exercise, and medication, but her health dropped off a cliff a couple days ago and she's just not going to recover. She has been an angel to our family through difficult times as we bought her as a companion to my daughter when she was diagnosed with crohns. My daughter is doing well as a nurse in Boise, but Niko has succumbed to age and arthritis and is now sick and frail. Niko has struggled up the front porch and getting up from laminate floors for the last time. My daughter is home for a couple days, and we all finally came to a unanimous decision that it was time. I am a little bit sorry we waited so long, but it's so hard to let go. She has been a gift from god and we will miss her!!!!!!!!!!!

One of our families most difficult decisions, but it was the best thing to do. Niko is no longer struggling and is finally at peace. Glad to have her home again
