7/13/2011 - 9/15/2020Nina was the most loving sweetest baby dog even made best friends with the rescue kitten I brought home seven years ago. She was also so smart. We loved to balance treats on her nose and have her wait a few seconds before she'd toss them in the air and catch them in her mouth. My husband could also stack cheezits on her nose lol she was so good at listening. She was always by my side or under my legs in bed and made each day a little brighter. She loved getting in the pool and sitting on the first step when it was hot, laying in the sunbeams, and playing tug of war. Every time we would go in the backyard she'd bring us her rope. She was fiercely protective even when dad would tickle or play wrestle with me or the kids she would growl at him to make sure we were OK. When she was diagnosed with cancer she never let it stop her from showing us the same love and affection. She would still come sit at my feet at dinner time because she knew I would always share with her and she never stopped climbing the stairs to sleep with us at night. She could no longer jump on the bed but slept right next to me. She took part of me with her. I'm so grateful I got to be her dog mom.Lori AllenVacaville, CaliforniaSeptember 17, 2020

Thank you Nina for lighting up your family with all of your love, including but not limited to: licks on our faces and everywhere else, snores and slobers, wagging your tail when greeting everything and everyone who loved you, stepping on shoeless toes and hands, accepting our gazillions of belly rubs and soap bubbles, eating anything and everything offered you or dropped on the floor from two little boys who adored you, protecting your family from your high lookout turret from countless intruders approaching and entering your castles...forever loving the moments of love and life you shared with us! We'll see you on the other side sweet Nina! ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤Susan & Larry Allen - September 17, 2020
I hope you know Nina was so lucky to have a family who loved her and took such good care of her for so many years. I enjoyed hearing about her life with your family, and I hope all the memories you shared will bring peace and comfort.Rene Butler - September 17, 2020
