Ahh, I bet his ancestors who were used to track animals would be proud of Niko, the worst hide-and-seek player EVER. Not only is his sense of smell terrible, his peripheral vision is equally as bad, LOL. I would understand if Niko’s owner chose some extra tough place to hide, but she was RIGHT THERE, calling him and giving him hints whenever he went way off.
On a serious note though, as easy as it is to make fun of him, I’m sure Niko was just too excited to play with mom and was completely overwhelmed with joy. I just wander how long it took him to find her eventually.
