Then & Now

Three years ago today we adopted our little princess! She has enriched our lives immeasurably with her love, her kisses, her spunk, and her very own style. Mya is like no other dog that we have ever owned. She loves everyone, even after her rough beginning.

In April 2010 Mya gave birth to a litter of puppies, probably at the hands of a puppy mill or backyard breeder. Our best guess is that the puppies were stillborn, so they no longer had any need for Mya and tossed her in a creek in Missouri. Luckily, some workers saw her and fished her out. She was covered in fleas and ticks and had a severe case of mastitis. It took two weeks to get her healthy enough to travel to Omaha. Once she arrived here, it took another month to get her healthy enough for her spay. By then, we had all fallen in love with her, and our foster dog became a permanent member of our family!

Happy Gotcha Day, Mya --- we love you so much!
