Arrival Story: Mirra is Mica's baby sister. Her sire (Rogue) is an American, her dam (Jaguar) a Canadian. We consider her to be a half Canadian, half American Belgian Oregonian! One of 8 pups (3 girls & 5 boys), ALL but Mirra now live in British Columbia. She came 'home' with Sufi on MONDAY 23 July 2007. Sufi is now an Angel, at age 3 due to IMHA. We are still terribly sad about this. The day Mica came home she was with her big brother Quixote, also in July. Mirra arrived here with little sister Sufi. Both really FUN days. Both girls are ALL Belgian, regardless of color. Looking back, we're SO thankful the wonderpup HAS helped us to care for this sister breed to the Tervuren. As we have found with another alphapup 'APTLY named' Rebel Force, we've needed it at times. She is a wonderful little sprite and brings joy & laughter each and every day. Many BLACK DOGS never get a chance.. They NEED us more than ever. TRUST a BLACK PEARL, and see how they WILL enrich your LIFE!!
Bio: Their litter theme is "STAR WARS." (family has 3 great young kids & the theme came from their recent discovery of the film). Our daughter McKenna chose Mica's registered name. That theme was an "ADVENTURE." Named for the Palme d' Or winner that year at the Cannes Film Festival, Ques-que ce "WILD AT HEART." She WAS definitely all that!
Hence, Mckenna was again asked to select the registered name for Mirra. Hers is Attra Dea "REBEL FORCE." So far, the wee lass is living up to her name. She is a rebel force! Someone once said, be careful what you name them, it may come true. Both girls call names reflect their coloring. Mica for their mom's affinity for rocks, 'Mica Schist'.. Mirra, for another favorite, Australian Aboriginal art. Translated meaning "darkest cloud in the sky at the time." (of a thunderstorm)
We wish that Mica was still here with us as she'd be the best big sister to come along since her own big sister McKenna. Mirra's been welcomed warmly at Dogster, as has our dear Angel Mica-the wonderpup. The cats, Frank-named for Old Blue-eyes (Sinatra) & Whitney, live with Mckenna in nearby Portland. Margo joined Angel Mica, sadly.. But Mirra gained a cousin named Lukas, of canine fame, who needed a loving home after being rescued and boy did he find one!
To all of my pals, my Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins.. Whether they be dog, cat or human.. And especially ALL of the wonderful and LOVING ANGELS that watch over me.. Thank you FUR remembering me on my birthday.
It meant a great deal to me and of course mom. My good friend Chester even came by to spend some time with me. He is an 18 yr old cat who thinks he is a dog. We had a blast playing my favorite games ( we had a windy afternoon of Frisbee, which mom says makes me run extra fast), and the few sprinkles we received assured me of good luck! It is good luck when it rains on your birthday! We just came in from our third round of merriment. We don't know why, but I am simply mad about brand new gallon plastic jugs. Especially at night outdoors. Maybe it is genetic. Both mom and I are gonna sleep like logs!
I was sung to, in English and Italian, by two different loved ones, and received many nice surprises. By executive order there was no brushing today! They do NOT call me Rebel Force for nothing! My dad called.. He had to travel today ;(
I know he will deFURnitely make it up to me.
And so did McKenna. I am pooped and soon it will be bedtime. My beauty sleep is important, even tho I am still quite the spring chicken. I just wanted to say thanks to all the ones I love for making me feel special today. With EXTRA special thanks to Mica and ALL of the Angels who are the best.
Give all of my pals a big kiss & hug and tell them how much they mean to you (and me)!
We eat that stuff up!
Mirra, now six years young
