“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.”

“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 panicked when he started sprinting on the shore away from us.

We got to shore quickly and threw a stick, which he loves to catch.

Thankfully, he came running over.”

“Eventually, I was working from home and my girlfriend was in school and we were able to train a puppy.

They need to go out every two hours and require constant monitoring.

This past fall we were tubing and Niko got out of the tube and his life vest.

He realized he couldn’t get back to us.”

“The timing was right for us to get a dog.

We both grew up with families that had dogs and we knew down the road we wanted a dog.

We each wanted a dog (individually), but it was never the right time.”

“We argued about what kind of dog to get.

He really wanted a Husky, but I didn’t like the idea of a big dog in the city.

He did a lot of research and found the Alaskan Klee Kai.

The breed was started 30 years ago and is a cross between the Siberian Husky and the Schipperke.”

“Milo has also made us more of a family.

We take walks together, look for dog parks together and have become social with other dog owners.

All in all, Milo has expanded our world.”

“initially, having Milo was difficult on our relationship because we had a tough time dividing the responsibilities.

We weren’t sure about who walked him or cleaned up his accidents more, but now being responsible for Milo has ultimately brought us together.

We have learned to work as a team.”

We divided the walks evenly and are on the same page about training him.”

“Since having Milo, I have been working and attending school at the same time and I was overwhelmed.

I began to cry, and Milo just knew that I needed comforting and lay down beside me.

Hie is usually closer with my boyfriend, but on this day he stayed by my side for several hours.

We fell asleep together and when I woke up, he was still by my side.”
