Jb La Fem Nikita 1/18/98 - 5/1/06


Recommended Posts



She was the best 1st Greyhound a person could ever dream of. She was a return, 7-1/2 years old, whose owners had reached an age where they couldn't properly care for her or her adopted brother. Her brother was rehomed right away, but Nikki languished in the kennel for 4 months. We had been without a dog for 7 years when I decided to fulfill a long ago promise to consider adopting a Greyhound. My search was brief because there is a track adoption group close by. When I saw her photo on the adoption website, I knew immediately that she was "the one".

Exactly ninety days after she walked through my front door and straight into my heart, she was diagnosed with lymphosarcoma. Fortunately, I was granted another 5-1/2 months to spoil her rotten and fall hopelessly in love.


She never met a stranger; two legged or four. She was simply the best. My heart dog.

It will be five years on Monday that I lost my lymphoma girl, Cosmo, to old age and my misuse of prednisone.


Wow, it seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago all at once, doesn't it?

The way I'm figuring, you gave her the best eight and a half months a girl could ever have. Not long enough....

Nikki was such a beautiful girl. You were able to give her lots of love and care during the time that she spent with you. Although she left you far too soon, that was such a gift for Nikki to have had a second chance at love. If only she could have stayed longer.........
