RIP, Niki

This is the human posting...

Niki came to live with me a couple years ago after her previous human passed away. She was 12 at the time.

Last night Niki's health deteriorated. She had trouble walking and seemed not to be able to see. I monitored her health during the night and by morning she seemed to be back to the Niki I knew.

But when I got home from work and Niki wasn't at the window I knew that one way or another it was time for Niki to meet her previous human at the Rainbow Bridge. When I got in the house she was standing, but I could tell that she couldn't see. I offered her a treat, but she couldn't find it. I offered her a bowl of water, but she tried to bite it. So Niki and I took a trip to see Dr. Debbie. They are very nice there. They came out to my truck and sent Niki on her trip from it.

Fare well, Niki. I'm sure you and your previous human Don are catching up on lots of things.
