Arrival Story: This little cutie pie came into our lives on Wednesday, February 27, 2008. We had no plans of adding another dog into our home, but here she is. The pound site said she would be euthanized on Tuesday, but we persisted and rescued her. I'm guessing at her age and at her birthday because we have no idea when she was born. We're using the date we rescued her. The pound personnel said she was picked up wandering the streets. She is super thin. You can feel her bones. That cute little face with her pleading eyes said it all...we had to rescue her. She is the sweetest little dog with a wonderful disposition that it makes me wonder how she ended up on the streets then at the pound. Her hair was matted so bad we had to get her shaved, but now she's clean and feeling great. When you look into those pleading eyes you can't help but pick her up and give her a big ole hug. I wish more people would think about rescuing animals from the pounds. It feels great to save a life!
Bio: I was picked up roaming the streets of St. Martin Parish. My humans don't know my birthday or age and I'm not sure how to tell them. They've decided to use the date they brought me home for birthday celebrations.

It's with great sadness I have to report on Wed., August 13, 2008, Miracle was diagnosed with Auto Immune Hemolytic Anemia. It is a serious and often fatal blood disease in which the body attacks its own red blood cells. Symptoms include: fatigue, pale mucas membranes, increased water consumpsion, and food aversion. We saw no signs until the morning she showed signs of weakness. She went through a lot in the short time we had her including the removal of a piece of metal from her stomach which I suspect may have lead to this disease. The toxins were probably already doing their damage to my poor little baby. She had seven teeth removed because they were in such bad shape, but we thought she was doing well. She was happy so this took us completely by surprise. To learn more about this disease visit Mica's page at mica-the wonderpup. After spending a week running back and forth to the vet's offices, a specialist, having her spleen removed and receiving a blood transfusion she began Prednisone. She had a good report during her checkup on Monday (8/18), but went downhill early Tuesday a.m. We were looking forward to giving her more years of happiness, but it was cut short by this horrific disease. She will be forever missed as she left her pawprints all over my heart.

Oh my it's been a whole five years ago today I came to the bridge and left behind a new wonderful furever family who loved and cared fur me. I'll never furget those months from the day I came into my new mommy's life in Feb 2008, all the special attentions she gave me, and how Sheba & Spike let me be part of the family. And, my new daddy gave me the name Miracle. Now all those loved ones mommy had surrounding her are up here with me looking down on her and those four little terriers who run the house now. My new daddy came in January this year and boy did Spike ever give him a grand celebrations. You see Spike helped him transition over to this side. Sheba was woofing up a storm when he arrived. She'd already bragged to everybody how he'd rescued her from that mean man in 1996.
May every throw away doggie find a furever home like me before they have to join us at the Rainbow Bridge. That's still my wish every year!
I'm so excited to have a diary pick today. It's especially important to me since I wrote about the signs I sent to my furiend's pawrents on my 3rd year anniversary at the Bridge. What a special day fur me as I was pawtying with my fellow angel furs. We had so much fun, but I also had to send those signs to peeoples on Earth to let them know I'm still around. Annie is so sweet; she barked about it in her diary today.
Time comes and goes so quickly as us doggies come and go so quickly into our pawrent's lives. It also makes us realize how quickly we're furgotten by most, but never by our pawrents. We're always in their hearts and on their minds. I'm sure that's how it's gonna be until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.
Little Angel Miracle
My mommy posted about me on her FB page to mark my 3rd year anniversary up here. Many of my furiend's pawrents remember me too. I made myself known to a couple of them and they told my mommy.
My boyfuriend, Bo's mama got my sign and told my mommy all about me saying "hello" through her new foster, Jada. Jada had my Rainbow bridge picture in her mouth and took it to Ms. Laura. Ms. Laura said Jada don't shred paper and rarely approaches her without an invitation. I just wanted her to know I'm still around and me and her Bo have fun running through the fields every day. We're happy at the Rainbow Bridge, but still miss our families.
Then Annie's mom said she was driving home from the vet, and the van in front of her had a personalized license plate which had an open hand next to Miracle. She knew right away I was waving at her. Ms. Nancy has many furs up here at the bridge; she suffered more losses than my mommy and they used to chat & farm on FB for awhile supporting each other during those difficult times. There was lots of crying going on...I'm glad Ms. Nancy knew I was visiting and sending signs on my anniversary. I gave more signs, but not everyone noticed...that's okay I still love all my furiend's pawrents. My mommy knows I did that because I'm responsible fur bringing lots of peeoples together through Dogster. All them who posted on her FB page came together because of me.
My hooman bro rescued a Husky the day after my anniversary up here, but you know I planted the seed in his head to do that. It makes me feel good to send pawsitive thoughts and peeoples actually see & listen to me. It's very important to adopt; don't shop fur doggies cuz there's so many out there needing homes. Just look at me...I was in the doggie jail fur awhile and was lucky to find a new furever home. My mommy felt so much guilt fur the longest times, but she knows it wasn't her fault I got sick. She tells peeoples she is happy that I knew the love of a home again before being called to the permanent home up here.
Many thanks to all you special furiends fur sending me wishes, rosettes and thinking of me on my 3rd year bridge anniversary. It seems like only yesterday me and my new mommy first met. One day we will see each other again.
