As you can tell from the name, Nice Guy was a really friendly dog. Of the dogs rescued from the City Pound on December 23, 2014, Nice Guy was the friendliest by far, to other dogs as well as to humans.
He was always wagging his tail and licking Ken. He seemed to appreciate having been brought to the shelter.
This makes his fate all the more undeserving. Nice Guy became infected with Canine Distemper Virus. We don't know if the contagion occurred at the City Pound, or at the shelter. Either way, he lost weight and was made to suffer, even though he never did anything wrong.
He passed away on January 17, 2015. We try to remember him as he was initially - of normal weight, happy, friendly, and forever wagging his tail. But it's difficult.
