|hey... my names Mihkoa... its pronounced MICK-OW-AH. It is an Abenaki word that means Red Squirrel.... mom says its suits me for more than one reason.... the first is that im really RED.... or atleast I was really red... now Im more brown.... but mom says im the same color as the red squirell... then she says Im REAL SKWERLY.... lol....
Mom brought me home out of the blue and wasnt expecting to get a dog... so when I first came home she just called me "red dog". Everyone said that was WAY to boring for such an interesting dog.... so mom is part passemaquadee, a tribe in the Abenaki nation (native american, new england), and was reading a book on the abenaki's. So there were a bunch of translations.... and red squirrel was just it. She knew it as soon as she red it. But alot of people cant say it. They call me "Makayla", or "mickowla".... or weird things like that. Mom says if you cant say it just call me "Mihk"(mick), thats what she calls me for short!
