playing, walking, laying in the sun, her Kong, anything that she shouldn't have, attention, catch, snuggling, people, kids, other dogs, cats, the giant bunnies in Calgary, birds . . .
blowing rasberries! She freaks out!
Bo-Bo, the Kong, anything that she can tear stuffing out of, her rope, and her squeaky, rubber toys
What isn't Midge's favorite food? She eats and loves everything.
Anywhere and everywhere. To Midge, taking long walks are the highlights of her existence.
She can fall over and die when I "shoot" her with my hand. Also, she sits on her back haunches and puts her front paws together to catch things.
I have always had a passion for animals and, in the autumn of 2006, I discovered petfinder.com, an amazing resource for finding animals up for adoption. The more I looked through the pages, the more I became aware of how much I wanted a dog and how much I could help an animal in need. There were three dogs I saw before Midge, all of which fell through for one reason or another. And then I saw her, a scrawny little dog that looked like a half-starved Mexican rat. I fell in love immediately. The adoption centre, The Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) in Cleveland, Ohio held adoptions every Saturday from noon until three in the afternoon at PetSmart. I couldn't risk losing Midge, so I got there at 8:30 in the morning and waited. It was a heart-wrenching and nerve-wracking experience for a mutlitude of reasons, the main of which was because someone got in line ahead of me and they chose Midge because the dog they wanted was ill and could not be adopted. After explaining how long I had waited and that an employee told me to stand in the wrong area (for over three hours!), I finally got Midge!
Midge was born in an abandoned garage in southern Ohio. Neighbors eventually heard her and her litter yipping and called the pound. They were all going to be euthanized at the beginning of October. Luckily, a wonderful woman from ARF in Cleveland, Ohio drove nearly to Kentucky to rescue Midge and her three siblings. When I adopted her, she had kennel cough and a very bad case of intestinal worms, but now she is thriving and healthy!
"I love everything and everyone!"- Midge
Like Gandhi, Midge believes that the greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. She also believes that everyone should do just a little more about animal welfare, whether that be signing a petition, calling a state representative, donating time or money, adopting an animal in need, or fostering. Midge realizes that it is impossible for any one person to do everything, but if we all gave a little bit we would be helping immensely.
