We don't normally see Nina (and Jim her dad) that often but we got to enjoy her again recently under sad circumstances. Her big sister, Kiki the yellow labrador passed away at the vets waiting for an ultrasound. She was 10 years old and it was all very sudden. Very sad. Nina hasn't known life at her house without Kiki and has been having a hard time when being left alone. Luckily Jim takes Nina to work with him everyday which is great but at other times when Nina has been left alone she has been stressed without Kiki and got into mischief in the house - I understand Jim came home one evening and the house was a mess and little Nina was on the dining room table!! So when Jim had to go away for the day he didn't want to leave her for that long until she adjusts to being alone so he dropped her off at our house. Of course we didn't mind at all....and Nina soon made herself at home
Zack helped to take her mind off of the loss
he even shared his favourite wubba kong
We didn't really know Kiki the labrador as much as being older Jim didn't take her too many places but I think it has been a terrible loss to them.... anything we can do to ease the pain for both Nina and her family we will.
I didn't get pictures but later in the day we even took her down to the river and Zack, Nina and I sat on the riverbank and watched Pete fish and the swallows do their thing - it was lovely. I think Nina had a good day. When Jim came to pick her up later that night she was so cute and ran down the street to him, Jim scooped her up and fussed her all over..... You have to know Jim but he is a hunter, a tough kinda guy who doesn't really like "little" dogs..... you know a hunting dog is the only way to go bla bla bla..... but little Nina is the light of his life now and he just adores her ----- scruffy little dogs rock!!!!!
Hopefully the loss will get easier and may be one day Nina will get a new little pup at home to keep her company.
This coming Thursday we have another guest coming to stay for a few days, Deuce the whippet x, while his family goes away on holidays.
