Peter Nichols (Original) (Current)

Peter is from Burlington Massachusetts. He's had a great passion for the outdoors since he was quite small, and would spend hours in the woods behind his home exploring his own 2-acre "wilderness". When he was old enough, his parents enrolled him in the Boy Scouts of America.

He set about earning his merit badges with great fervor and made Eagle Scout at 12 years old. Peter was determined to become the youngest Eagle Scout ever but missed this goal by several months. Despite the many congratulations and high praise from his parents and troop, he found this terribly disappointing.

While on a camping trip, Peter heard a commotion in the woods, the sound of a crying animal. He decided to check it out and woke his father to help him investigate. They discovered a dog who had slipped down into a crevice, his front paws bloody from trying to scramble out and failing countless times. While Peter's father got a rope, Peter impulsively slid down into the crevice with the animal. The dog did not want him to approach at first, seeming unsure if Peter was friend or foe, but Peter tossed the animal a few chunks of the granola bar from his vest pocket, and the creature made up its mind. Peter's father had a bit of trouble finding the campsite, and Peter comforted the animal while his father found his way, and then the rope and returned. He tied the end of the rope into a crude harness, and Peter was able to put it on the dog and himself, and they climbed out together. When they were unable to find an owner in town, Peter's parents allowed him to adopt the animal. They took him to the vet, and were astonished to find that what they thought was a full-grown dog, was in fact a Leonberger puppy! Peter's parents would probably not have let the boy keep the animal had they known how much more it had to grow, but they were not prepared to break his heart once they found out. From the time of his rescue, Goliath as Peter named him, was never far from Peter's side.

With both of his parents working, Peter has learned to be quite self-sufficient. The outlook and helpfulness taught to him by the boy scouts have him often helping around the house and his neighborhood. He's taken the Boy Scout's code to heart, and he enjoys the positive feeling he gets from benefiting his community.
