Arrival Story: Mia was an unclaimed stray from Animal Control. We put a hold on her sight unseen when we heard she was brought in. The staff gave us glowing reviews about her personality. It was agonizing waiting for the stray hold to expire, but when she was officially up for adoption we drove 500 miles each way to pick her up and bring her home. She is not only very sweet, but also very beautiful.
Bio: Mia was found wandering in the middle of winter. She was shaved down and had a clipper burn on her rear that was totally hairless. She was also underweight and full of tapeworms. I was so happy that she was never reclaimed. With time, love, and proper nutrition she has totally recovered. I feel as if she was sent to us. She brings us such joy. I hope everyone will consider a rescued dog or cat and please spay or neuter to reduce the number of unwanted animals each year.
After a month and a half, we are finally back on Dogster. We cleared our cache and lost the saved password which forced us to need to file for a new password since all previous passwords were wiped out. Finally after multiple requests and customer support e-mails, they responded. The hardest part was missing Mia's birthday in August. It was her first away from us and I couldn't even log on to send her a gift. :( We're back now though and that is all that matters.
Missing my sweet Mia today and always. Sorry I missed your birthday.
Love you Mia,
PS - I was finally able to update your page sweet angel girl
I guess patience is a virtue, after 14 months since their first offer and 7 months under contract, the pawrents finally closed on their house.
They might not be on much for a little while until things settle. They still need to sell their current house and do the whole move thing which means a lot of painting and cleaning and sprucing things up.
Hopefully a fence will come soon so the pups can enjoy the new big yard. I have been watching over them, I know my tree can now be planted soon.
Thank you Dogster for choosing me as a DDP! It's always super pawciting!
Today, the last of the inspections were done on the new house. This time the well and septic tests were done and the results should be in later this week. Only 9 days to closing. I'm so happy for my family, I know they will all love it there. I never minded the busy atmosphere of the subdivision we lived in but I do know Teddy and Mei Li will definitely appreciate the larger lot with less houses. Less houses means less people and they will like that. Dragon is more like I was :) He loves all the people around. On Halloween, Dragon and me always had a blast when the kids came around. I think Dragon thought they were all there for him, he would dance and spin around. I never had the heart to tell him they were there for the candy. I think he will be disappointed this year. They may get some kids, but it won't be like is has been in the past.
Should be quieter days ahead but lots of work to be done. My diary writing days may take a hit. Love from little ol me, the sweetest pea
