Niki Is Better

Nike came home from the veterinary hospital yesterday.  We are still not certain if her problem is an infection or some more serious kidney breakdown.  She looks good, is more active, and has eaten some.  I learned that the life expectancy for a dog of her breed and weight is about 12 years (and add a year or two because she is a mixed breed).  But most of our dogs have lived several years past their LEBs.  Niki is now "76" and in two years will be older than i since she ages 4 "years" for each one of mine.
