“Niko has given us reason to do things that we might not have done without him.
I would’t have just gone for a walk in the park by myself, but now I take Niko and walk for hours.
Niko has brought my fiancé and me closer together.
We care for him together; he is a shared responsibility.
He adds more flue to our family.
He is also a stand-in, or partner and companion when one of us is traveling.”
