Nike means Goddess of Victory and Nike, I’m sure, feels victorious to have been brought to Canada from a life on the streets of Istanbul. She is such a fast learner and is now walking well on the leash. She is getting pretty good with her commands and has even learned to run upstairs and sit beside the bathroom when it’s bedtime so she can get her nightly teeth brushing. No teeth brushing in her former like…just a brush off! For a while, Nike started to get growly when encountering other dogs and it turned out it was a direct reaction to my nervousness when new dogs approached. Once I figured that out and changed my behaviour, so did Nike. Now, how cool is that? She is simply adorable and I love her very much!
The Next Chapter….Nike is our third Golden in our Golden-loving family. Daisy #912 was our second Golden, also adopted from GR. Nike came from Istanbul and loves every minute of her new Canadian home. In 2016, she lost an eye due to melanoma but this has not stopped her one little bit from keeping a constant watch on the comings and goings on her new street and I’m constantly cleaning the windows of nose-art. Our beautiful Nike was Miss May in the 2017 calendar. Not only was this charming girl given a second chance, but I was blessed to be chosen to be her new family.
