Rewarding Good Behaviors did a holiday special on their website and Niko is featured:
Niko was neutered a few days ago. We dropped him off in the morning and picked him up after work. When we arrived, he was zonked out in the kennel. After we completed the paperwork and turned around, he was awake with his tail wagging at the gate. It was a heartwarming reunion and we gave him lots of hugs and kisses.
Niko is recovering very nicely. Since he is a smaller dog (22 lbs), his stitches were smaller. He was sluggish that first night but bounced right back the next day.
