Miss Mia Goes to Iowa

A City Girl Moves to Iowa. By Miss Mia

On my "Gotcha Day" Tuesday morning March 31 right away Mona, my foster sis and I knew something was up.

But we got some play time in anyway.

And we did some posing for the camera - Mona you are a ham!

Hanging with my foster Mom - I love you foster Mom!

Helping pack my stuff.

Did I ever mention that I have my very own monkey crate? Apparently real monkees used it before me, I would have liked to have met them. (Susan says my monkey crate is the reason my blog is not called Mia's Diary of Destruction...)

Finally we hit the road. It was kind of a tight fit in the back of the car with all of my stuff.

I just knew great things were up ahead so I sat up for part of the trip to get a better look.

Ah, Iowa smells really good...I am now sitting on Susan's lap for a better view. Can you see who is sitting on the floor by Susan's feet?

Yep, its Millie, my sister who came along for the ride to make sure she approved of my new home...she only believes in traveling on the floor in the front seat - I think she misses a lot of stuff down there but it makes her happy. Did you notice my spiffy new collar? I have a matching new leash too!

In case you were wondering , this is what Iowa looks like. When we left Chicago it was raining hard but as we drove through Iowa the sun came out just for us!

I see houses! Are we almost there yet? Finally, we pull up in a very nice driveway, Millie and I could hardly contain ourselves so we went to check out the back yard first.

Oh boy, do I like my new backyard, and I think I am going to like the neighbors too!

Millie and I give my new backyard a huge paws up and roll around to show how much we approve!


Hey, I know you - hello new Mom - let me give you some kisses!


Check it out - my new Mom is so talented she can keep Millie and I in place with just her hands....he he.

Hey new Mom - this is my Snoopy dance of happiness - you should try it!

Can you even find me in my new fantabulous and ginormouse backyard?

Next we went in the house for a look see...this is the lovely kitchen where cookies are dispensed. Hey new Mom are you seeing my perfect sit stay?

Millie tried out the couch for me and decided she liked it a lot.

I am liking my new living room - I have a great veiw of my awesome backyard. Yep, I can get used to this set up.

Hey, was that a squirrel, or a bird or a bunny in my backyard? I better keep a look out!

Next my new Mom took me on a walk in the neighborhood - there were dogs checking us out from their windows and barking hello, lots of great smells, some kids and a big park just a block away. I am going to be one busy dog!

The walk was great...but do you know what the best part was? Coming home. They even put a sign out for me...and it has a picture of my new Dad on it!

Hey, new Dad is home. Hey new Dad what's in the bag? Anything for me?

I remember you too...how about some kisses?

Not only did I get kisses from my new Dad, but he gave me a massage so I wouldn't worry too much when Aunt Kira and Aunt Susan said goodbye and headed back to Chicago.

I am a very happy and very, very lucky girl to have so many people that love me so much. I love my new home and my new Mom and Dad and I am gonna do my best to be a good girl and make everyone very proud of me. I will be sure to keep you all updated on my adventures in Iowa.
Love, Mia

Thanks so much to everyone who donated, spent time with, passed Mia's email around, checked her blog, said a prayer and sent positive vibes this way. We are so grateful to everyone but especially Laura and Mike, her foster parents for giving her a chance and the love and training she needed to be ready for her forever home.
Every dog deserves a home and every dog can find a home. Keep the faith.

Oh, wow; I was JUST thinking about Mia last night and wondering if her trial home had worked out. This is wonderful news and the culmination of so much work and caring on the part of many people. Congratulations to all, and I wish Mia many happy years with her new family!

Oh Mia! What a wonderful new home! We are so excited for you! Please stay in touch with us, we want to hear all about your new friends and mom and dad!

Mia said...

Thanks Puffy and Daisydog - I will be sure to keep everyone updated about my new home and Millie and Mona and Maggie too.

And maybe there is another dog who needs her own blog and we could feature her on mine!

Gotta go watch for bunnies!

Love, Mia

Oh my gosh, Mia! I think I'm going to cry for happiness! I'm so, so excited to see the photos of your new home in Iowa (it's a nice place - I grew up there!), and boy you have a fabulous back yard! But what's even better is your new family. They look really nice and I can tell they will give you tons of love and kisses. Congratulations, Mia, and bless you in your new home!!!

I am so happy to hear about Mia! I used to live in Chicago, and met her Mom, Erica, at a volunteer orientation. I just found this blog today through a rescue blog here in Minnesota. I know how much Erica cared about animals and I'm just thrilled that Mia has a new home!!
