My Jack Russell Terrier, named Niko, died on January 16, 2012. She was 8 years old.
On Friday 13, 2012, Niko ran away from home. She was hit by a car later that evening. She was taken to the pound because she wasn't wearing a collar. The next day, my mom went to the pound, found Niko, and then took her to the Animal Hospital. Niko had a broken hip, a paralyzed foreleg on the same side, and various other broken bones. Niko's family said goodbye to her on Saturday the 14th. Niko's last breaths were in my arms on Monday, January 16, 2012 as she was put to sleep. Niko was a good dog and was much loved by her family.
