Ashley’s Nicholas 1996-2008

We had to put our little Sheltie down this morning. Age had caught up with him and he suffered acute kidney failure despite all efforts to save him.

We’ve been blessed all our lives with some of the best pets we could ever hope to find: good companions all, each with their own marvelous personalities. But I can honestly say, Nicky was the finest dog we have ever had the privilege to know.

He was a true gentleman, fiercely protective but never unkind; responsive and accepting, never demanding, forever sympathetic to what was surely the bewildering drama of our lives and those of the other pets he lived with.

He will be deeply and truly missed.


“I miss the wagging little tail;
I miss the plaintive, pleading wail;
I miss the wistful loving glance;
I miss the circling welcome dance.”
– Henry Willet
