WELCOME TO NIKITALAND!
Come on in, we’re all friends here! I’m Valerie, the author of Nikitaland, who brings you fun blog posts from just about everything under the sun, our life with our two dogs, lots of gardening tips, and some interesting craft projects that I have made along my journey in life with my Sweetie.
Our dogs mean the world to us and being able to provide them with a “forever home” brings us so much happiness!
Nikita is one happy dog, can’t ya tell?
The photo above is one of the most priceless moments ever! I always take time in every day to spend with our dogs, hanging out, or just watching out the front door to see what the neighborhood is up to.
This blog is all about Nikita, and the reason I started this blog. Nikita was our first rescue dog and she was adopted from the Cleveland APL through PetSmart’s Pet Fair on September 12, 2010. She was born on July 18, 2010 and this blog was started to keep everyone up to date on new photographs and all the fun things that she does. Nikita’s story began when she came from a litter of seven. Her Mommy was poisoned with anti-freeze after giving birth to her litter. The pups were in dire need of help & food and the APL rescued all of them. If it was not for the APL, these pups would have not made it.
We added another rescue puppy to our little family in 2012, her name is Bella, and we adopted her too from the APL. Bella is brindle in color, but her breed is unknown. Bella was originally found roaming the streets of Cleveland after she was born, but we rescued her and gave her all the love in the whole world. Someone threw poor Bella out of the streets to survive for herself, and we often wonder if these people ever wonder what happened to her. Both Nikita and Bella are the perfect match for each other!
Not only is Nikitaland about the dogs, but I love to share all of my craft ideas with you, some delicious recipes, free printables, and the lovely life that we all share. We are huge fans of Halloween, and love decorating our “Home Haunt” for the witching hour! Halloween is just not for kids anymore! We became gardeners in 2012 and fell in love with growing our own veggies! We hope that you follow along with our blog and we can all be friends!
Every year, we participate in the Pledge For Pets Fundraiser to help raise donations for the Animal Protective League and help give back to the community. Nothing pleases us more than knowing that we helped a dog, kitty or other furry animal get rescued and find their “Forever Home”. We rescued both Nikita and Bella from the APL and we know first hand all the good things they do to help save an animals life & find forever happiness. You too can help us each year by making a donation!
