Niko left us, and his twin brother Nubix behind this week. Niko was our sweetest boy who always behaved and could never be found causing any trouble. His favorite greeting was to walk up to you and give you one giant lick up your cheek or nose. He would not lick you again that day or during that play time again till you saw him again. We called him "big lick" and even when he was in the hospital, laying on the bed, he gave me one big lick right on my nose and let me know it was ok, Dad, I am going to be ok, and you need to be ok. I have lost two other huskies in my life, one wonderful boy Nelix 10, also to cancer, and one beautiful girl Nya who lived to be 15 years old. Nelix was Niko's uncle and Nya was our alpha female who I pray are both waiting to welcome Niko into the rainbow bridge....|
Niko was a fighter and he fought till the end trying to get up and play and come home with us, but the cancer was just too advanced and came on too quickly. I hope Niko is running around now, playing with Nelix and Nya and waiting for the Mom and Dad to join him with the rest of our pack. We miss you buddy and love you so much!! we will come back and check on your all the time, take care, love you, Mom and Dad.
03/21/2017- Hey Niko, just checking in buddy- there are so many people who have come to visit you and wonderful people have sent us cards and warm thoughts knowing how much we miss you. Hopefully you have found Nya and Nelix? they are looking for you right now if you haven't seen them yet!! They have treats and bones and all kinds of stuff just like you. Take care buddy, I will be back soon. Love you super Niko! Mom and Dad.
12/14/2017 -Hey buddy, how you doing? its winter! is it snowing? I got you a cozy bed, but you will probably tear it up, no worries. You found Nelix? you remember when you were just a month or two old he was like your Dad in the house? always taking care of you and Nubix :) Nubix says hello, he misses you so much. He was peeing outside his home every day for months after you left us- he was so upset. We finally had to get him an aircraft carrier again for him to be ok- he goes in there and just hides when he gets upset. Mom misses you so much buddy- we know you didn't want to leave us- it was way too soon and I miss you every day. Somehow Natasha survived her cancer tumor- we got that out, but now Nubix has a lump on his head we need to remove! its always something. Please find Nya and Nelix and play with them and enjoy the snow and know we love you so much and miss you. We will be with you again one day and play in the snow and have bags and bags of treats and bones and never run out! just hang in there buddy, we will see you again, Love, the Dad.
2/12/2018 - Super Niko- hey buddy, its the Dad! hope you are doing great! we miss you so much. Nubix has been a little crazy since you left us :( Nakita is crazy! its still cold, hopefully you got some snow? be safe buddy, Nelix, Nikki, Nya are all out there with you, that's like half the family already! pretty soon there will be more with you than with me! I don't know how to feel about that, Nanook is hanging tough, but he is 15! Take care buddy, just saying Hi! Love you buddy- the Dad.
