Any kind of attention. She loves her doggie friends, adores her brother, Nvwati

Mkwaa doesn't have any. She's a good girl who doesnt let ANYTHING bother her.

Favorite Toy:
Mkwaa is BALL OBSESSED! And she LOVES her teddy bears.

Favorite Food:
Lamb n Rice dog food, treats. Anything mom eats.

Favorite Walk:
ANYWHERE mom goes, but he loves Riverdale Park where she sees her doggie friends/family

Best Tricks:
Well, now Mkwaa is about as swift as a fart in a spacesuit sometimes, but she CAN give a paw, and shes absolutely adorable, loyal, sweet, and very loving

Arrival Story:
I rescued Mkwaa from Walpole Island First Nation near Chatham, when her previous human was about to shoot her. I put her in my pocket and brought her back to the city thinking I would find a loving home for her. She wiggled her way into our hearts within 24 hours, cost us over $2000.0o in emergency vet costs (she is worth every penny) , and Nvwati adored her instantly.

Mkwaa is Lab/Shepherd as far as we can tell. She is epileptic, and just the most sweetest dog I have ever come across. On Sept. 28, 2007 Mkwaa's brother, Nvwati passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. He died of a massive heart attack. She has been grieving his loss so much! She has lost interest in eating, in playing with her friends at Doggy Park, etc. Finally on the advice of many I agreed to take in another dog who is in desperate need of a loving family. Yukon Jack joined us this week. I will post his story and pictures later.

Forums Motto:

Well we got through Christmas ok. Mommy was pretty sad on Christmas morning, I know because she held Nvwati's urn close to her heart and sang Gramma Got Run Over By A Reindeer without Nvwati to sing along with her this year.
We didnt "do" Christmas this year but we had T bone steak for dinner. Yummmm. We also brought some food out to the homeless people like we always do. I am so glad this custom didnt change because those poor folk reallllllllly appreciated it.

Yukon and I got tons of gifts! We each got a HUGE box of LARGE Milkbones and flashing dog tags so Mommy can see where we are at night ( not that we are off leash), new bandanas and TONS of treats. Yummmy. Santa Paws was so good to us!

Its been a little more than 2 months since my brother Nvwati passed away.
I was soooo sad without him and my Mommy was VERY worried about me.
She heard about a man who needed to find a furever home for his dog so Mom called him and they talked for a long time. Mommy was so surprised when she learned that his dog was a red and white Siberian Husky!
Yukon has been living with us now and he is a very good boy! He is quiet and loves to play too! I let him know who is boss around food though so all is ok here.
Even though Mommy and I still miss ourNvwati in ways words cannot express we are very happy to have Yukon Jack live with us and be a part of our family.


Its been almost 3 weeks now

It's been almost three weeks now since my big brother, Nvwati, went to that place called Rainbow Bridge.
Mommy seems to be doing ok most days. At least she isnt crying all the time.
Me? Well thats a whole other story. I soooooooooooo miss Nvwati and I am convinced he's just hiding on me like he used to do when I bugged him all the time when I was real small. But I stopped bugging him so I don't know why he would hide now. Every day, several times a day, especially after Mommy and I hAve been out for our walk I come back home and check and double check every corner and even the balcony for Nvwati but he's not hiding in here. I am soooooooooo very sad. I'm not very interested in eating much (but I started to eat over the past weekend cuz Mommy was sooooooooooo worried about me! And I am not the least bit interested in playing in doggy park without Nvwati.
Me n Mommy went to the Animal hopsital last week and we picked up Nvwati's ashes and his paw print in plaster. Now he is hanging out on top of the fireplace. Mommy says he earned his place of honour up there.
I sure miss Nvwati!
