Nike's Memorial Page

In Memoriam of Nike

We got Nike on June 2, 1982 when she was just 8 weeks old. (Right is a picture taken shortly after we got her.)

She entertained us, educated us, and loved us for over 18 years. She passed away December 12, 2000 after having had chronic renal failure.

A favorite memory of her, I guess because it showed how smart she was, was that we had had her probably less than a week before she figured out how to open doors (she actually put her paws on the doorknob and turned it). The only thing that kept her from going anywhere she wanted in the house was that she couldn't reach most of the doorknobs.

Now that she's gone, she leaves us with the memories. How will we ever make the bed without her?
