Arrival Story: Mia was only 3-4 weeks old when she was found in the middle of the road alone. She was brought to a shelter and was not doing well. She wasn't eating because she couldn't eat hard food yet and was sick and lathargic. Mia came home with me the same day she was found. She had kennel cough and worms and had to be fed puppy formula. Mia got healthier every day and was very smart and easily trained. Mia was the youngest of the dogs but became the dominant one. Her playmate Bear took good care of her until in February '07 Bear passed away from cancer. Mia was so devastated.
Bio: Mia is a beautiful brindle girl. She is dominant over any animal that she meets. She also tends to be afraid of people she does not know and hides behind her best friend Nikkos or any human she knows. Mia is very intelligent and learns easily. She is controlling of Nikkos and she basically runs him and lets him know what he can and can't do. She acts like she is his mother and oh if I tell Nikkos or the cat anything she thinks she needs to reinforce it by making them do it. Mia is the most loyal dog to me though. She will pass up anything if it doesn't involve me. Mia loves walking or running more than any dog I know. She is so high energy she is never too tired to go. She loves running fast and making tight turns. She does this all the time running circles around Nikkos. She is very confident and her tail never goes down at all.
As of January 2013 Mia has just had surgery to remove a mass on her chest area the vet says that it is was I guess into her neck area. It was a large mass and her thyroid got mixed up in the mass, but the dr was able to save her thyroid. Everyone was so optimistic and everyone felt that the mass was just a fatty mass, but do to some unusually cells it needed to be removed and tested. The results just came back and Mia has been diagnosed with Cancer. It was a Mast histamine tumor that was removed from her and although it was removed they tend to come back and spread. The dr has recommended Chemo therapy, but unfortunately I work in social work and I am a single mother. It was a struggle making sure I could pay for her surgery which I still have to pay off. This is a very scary time for us right now. Mia has had some issues with the site of the mass removal and they had to drain it already we have to return every few days to check it and drain it. She is still as happy and sweet as every I so wish there was so much more I could dod for her she deserves it all.
So tomorrow is the day that a new puppy becomes part of our family. My mom bought her for her sister for her birthday. Her sister fell in love with this puppy at the humane society so mommy said she would buy it for her birthday. So now the problems begin. I was just getting used to Nikkos and his hyper self and now another puppy. Well at least I know i can boss that puppy into shape. As long as I am number one with my mommy I guess it will be ok. Look back soon we will add her to our dogster family.
So I was looking at Daddy's page and I just fell in love. He is just the kind of dog that I need around me. First of all my best friend's have always been pit bulls, but I don't want my brother as my valentine. Last year I had a valentine that was so sweet and took such good care of me. Unfortunately he had cancer and died a couple weeks later. It was the worst thing for me to go through. He was there since I was three weeks old and he taught me so much and when he was gone I just didn't know what to do with myself. I had a rough six months until my mom adopted another pit bull and now I have a good brother. I am very sad though that I may not have a valentine this year, because it will just remind me that Bear is gone.
Well back to Daddy, I have seen him on tv so many times and I get so excited when I see him. He is the kind of dog I need around. I am a relaxed kind of girl, but I do need a little help not being so bossy and I think Daddy would teach me just that. I think that I need to enforce anything that my mom says to my brother and the cat so I do need a little more work there. I am such a good and loyal dog though. I am so smart that my mommy got me when I was just three weeks old and by the time that I was six weeks I was already house trained. You see I was rescued when I should have still been with my doggy mom, because some how I ended up in the road all alone. I always listen to my mom too. Even if someone else tries to let me out I wait until my mom tells me that it is ok. I have seen Daddy and I know he has that same respect too. I know I am not a pit bull like his last valentine, but I am just as sweet.
So the last reason why Daddy should pick me to be his valentine is that I am still young and I need someone like Daddy to look up to and follow in his footsteps. Plus we would look so good together your beautiful red color and my beautiful brindle coat. Either way My whole family loves Daddy and we are all working harder every day to have his energy. We Love You Daddy.
