Nikon, May 22, 2016 - June 10, 2018

Nikon, you were not with us long but you captured our hearts. You were such a gentle spirit with a sweet innocent little face. I'll miss seeing you playing with your brother, Rocky, or at the window watching birds and squirrels, or sitting in the bluebonnets, or stretched out in a sunny spot. Our lives changed when you and Rocky came home with us, and now life will never be the same without you. I miss you so much!

*We were shocked and blindsided last week by the sudden loss of two year old Nikon from a blood disease with no cure. I am devastated.

I want to participate in your sadness. Nikon was a handsome guy, and he certainly had a good heart like a boy in that age. Now he has no pain and he is with you as long as you remember that rogue.
