Our Dog Nicky, 1995-2010, RIP This is one of Sophie’s favorite photos of Leo and Nicky. We had to put her down today, but we gave her one last really good day. Leo, having a last rest on his “pillow with eyes”. A cake for Nicky, with her age and initial (made out of pizza) on the top. Goodbye sweet girl! Thanks to New England English Springer Spaniel Rescue for placing Nicky with us — we’re so lucky we got eight great years with her.
