Well not only does she like plastic, she has gone through 5 of Chico’s stuffed animals. ha ha!!!!! They are all totally disembowled. She is still food aggressive and we hope to get her over that but if not that’s ok she’s not too bad with it. She is very protective with the toys too, she doesn’t like to share much. Her and Chico are best friends. They love to go bye bye. Nakita is so funny, when I’m on the computer or doing something and she wants attention, she puts her nose under my arm and lifts it so it lands around her neck and she will keep doing it until I acknowledge her presence. We are having a blast. She is well loved and a permanent part of this family.

I am so glad she’s getting along. I was hoping you guys were able to deal with her food aggression. She’s so weird about food that I actually found it kind of funny, in a “I hope she doesn’t actually take my arm off” way. Didn’t I warn you about the plastic? She was always trying to chew on my son’s plastic toys. Not any of the other ones (most other dogs want to go after his stuffed animals), just the plastic. And she chewed the nub off of my pooper scooper right after I washed it off and put it away! 🙂 She is such an imp. I really am glad for you guys. We loved her too, but weren’t interested in adopting right now. Please continue to keep us updated and feel free to send pictures! 🙂 By the way, you’re welcome. She is an awesome dog.

NAKITA IS DOING WELL, WE LOVE HER TO DEATH. SHE WILL EAT SNACKS OUT OF YOUR HAND BUT DOES NOT LIKE ANYONE AROUND HER WHEN SHE IS NEAR FOOD. SHE LIKES TO EAT OUT OF CHICO’S DISH INSTEAD OF HER OWN SO WE WILL PROBABLY BE SWITCHING THEM FOOD BOWLS, WE FEED THEM BOTH IN SEPARATE ROOMS SO THERE WILL BE NO FIGHTING. SHE’S FITTING IN HERE GREAT. HOPEFULLY WE WILL GET HER TO BE DOING BETTER WITH HER FOOD AGGRESSION, AND IF NOT, WELL THINGS WILL STAY AS THEY ARE. SHE SLEEPS ON CHEYENNES BED WITH HER AND THEY BOTH GO TO SCHOOL WITH ME. ONE THING ABOUT HER, SHE IS FASCINATED WITH PLASTIC AND LIKES TO TEAR IT APART IF GIVEN THE SLIGHTEST CHANCE. WELL KEEP IN TOUCH AND WE WILL WRITE MORE LATER, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HER.

As Niki’s former foster mom, I just wanted to say hi and see how she’s settling in. I don’t know if any of the board members have contacted you since I’m not privy to that information, so I wanted to send you a note myself. I hope you guys are enjoying her as much as we did, and getting along ok with her food issues.
What does Chico think of his new sister? I hope all is well, please write back.
