"Today we said goodbye to another one of our furry family members. Nika left us today and left a hole in our hearts. We were fortunate to have her for 12 years, she was ageless, she kept every dog in our home in line, and took crap from no one. For those that came to our home and met Nika you probably got a quick crotch check from her! :) She was fiercely independent and loved to lounge around on the deck in the sun. She will be dearly missed by our family but we know she is in a better place free from any pain. We feel blessed to have had our time with her, she was priceless! We love you Peanut!!!!"

"Dear Leslie,
Thank you so much for such a lovely portrait of Miss Nika. We framed her and presented her to John and Sherri over the weekend. Sherri was moved to tears.
Thank you from all of us!
