I adopted Nicholas from DRNA in January of 2003. From the beginning he was the best and most beautiful dog that I had ever met. He was great with the kids, housetrained, love to play outdoors and roll in the grass on a beautiful summer day. He loved toys and treats. He loved everyone that came to visit at our house. He loved to go for walks and sleep afterwards.

My favorite thing was how he followed me around the house from room to room. He would follow me everywhere and anyone that came over got such a kick out of it and thought it was funny, but it made me feel special. When he came to us, his estimated age was between 8 - 10 years old. My Nicky passed away yesterday on November 29, 2006 from a brain tumor. He got sick and declined rapidly. He passed away quietly in his bed. I was there with him, petting him and telling him how much I loved him.

Nicky - You made quite an impact on my life - I will never forget you and will always love and miss you. You will always be in my heart and I hope you are still following me around the house.
