Every time Niko hears a siren he howls. Niko lived with a homeless man on the streets of Venice before I adopted him. By all accounts, life on the streets was rough. Niko’s owner was blind and Niko was his guide dog and protector. His owner died outside a dog park in Santa Monica, and I adopted him shortly after. I don’t know if he howls because of some past trauma, or because of the wolf inside every dog.
