We found her at a shelter in April, 2004 when she was just 2 years old (found running around, abandoned in a field and no one came to claim her) and she has been with our family ever since. Sweet and gentle she instantly melded with our family. Mieka loved car rides and chasing the water from the hose. She was never afraid to jump into the water and was always there when you needed a comforting hug. Everyone she met fell in love with her and always said she was gorgeous but she was never more loved than by her family that surrounded her. We hope she’s with her best friend Jetta now after a full and happy life. No one could have asked for a better dog and no dog could have been a better fit for our family than our Mieka.

Mieka passed on July 3rd, 2016. Lying on the back porch in the sun surrounded by her family. We found her on a Sunday and she left us on a Sunday.
