Nakita update

Our vet called today to let us know that Nakita is going back home.

If you remember, Nakita was the 2 year old female who had pulled her elderly owner down and given him a concussion.  My vet had introduced me to her last week in the chance that I might be willing to give Nakita a home (her owner having doubts about whether he could control her).  The owner’s son called the vet and said that he felt like his dad would recover better with Nakita in the house, so, for now, Nakita was going back home to meet her owner as he leaves the hospital.

While part of me is relieved (I really was not looking to add to the Herd) and happy (great that Nakita and owner will be reunited and Nakita will be leaving her kennel), I must admit a little part of me is disappointed that cute little Nakita is not coming to join the Herd.  Will keep checking in to make sure owner and Nakita are adjusting to a gentler walk.

While we may not be siblings since we don’t share parents, we certainly claim each other as our brothers and sisters.
