Amazing Nicholas

Back in December I shared the story of Nicholas - a pup that came into the Arizona Golden Retriever Connection family before Christmas who need a lot of love and help.  To read his story click here.  Nicholas has been receiving lots of TLC, and is on his way to having his own fairy-tail story!   In honor of his amazing recovery, and to give folks a chance to meet him, AZGRC held a party just for Nicholas! 
Look at how handsome he is!
You can barely tell he had surgery!
Nicholas was a wonderful host - he greeted folks, begged for a few tidbits, and made sure to wander in and out of the house.  ...and when he got tired?  A nap in the sun!
Of course, folks kept petting him!
That's right, I'm a good boy...
 And yes, I did lots of petting too!
A little to the left, please!
In between petting Nicholas, we all had fun visiting and talking to the folks who played key roles in giving Nicholas a new life.  Thank you, everyone!
I couldn't resist these cute treats!
Nicholas is truly an amazing dog.  As he gains strength his quirky personality is starting to show through.
Who wants to get me sausage?
 ...and his playfulness...

Yup, I'm cool...
...and his loving nature.
These ear rubs are the best!
 I think he knew we were all there for him!
Is that a grin I see?
After all, he is...
