We just had to endure the horrible sutuation of having a pet euthanased. Our dog 'Nike' ...as in 'just do it'.... had to be put to sleep yesterday. He had developed a very aggressive form of Lymphoma and was deteriorating very quickly. Nike was 13 years old. We rescued him from an abusive home when he was 2. A Border Coliie crossed with a King Charles spaniel, he had all the cunning of a border collie and the loveable gentle nature of a spaniel. I'm not ashamed to admit that this hardass Kiwi man openly wept at Nikes departure. He will be missed immensely.
