The Story of Me - Mika

Hi, it is me, Mika here. 
The little princess Eva told me that I could post something about myself in her blog today and I think it's a good chance for you all to know a bit more about me. Besides, I think my story is more interesting than the rottenly spoilt Eva. I've to thank Minna as she came out with this good idea so I can leave my pawprints here too! Thanks, Minna!

I came into my pawrents' life when their first dog, a rottie called Laura was 7 years old. They thought that maybe she needed company since she had always been the only dog and well, she might be bored all by herself. 

My guardian angel, Rosie had always wanted to adopt a dog from the local shelter because at that time she was all about doing a good deed. So, one Easter holiday (in 2007), they visited SPCA and spent quite a long time there deciding about whether a pup or an adult dog would be a better fit for Laura. Mind you, those two dogs they were considering were not me at all. I was so anxious and worried, I wanted to tell them that ME was the best there but they didn't notice me at all. At the end of the day, they seemed they had lost hope, and decided to go home and think about it. It was then, that Rosie, my guardian angel spotted me, she thought what a calm, pretty girl I was. Rosie also thought I was sweet and gentle and I was also the first dog she met when she entered SPCA. She just thought, well, maybe I was the one.

It was indeed a shock when they proceeded to pay for me, the people said that I  was actually a male, and named Dino! They were in shock, but then, I behaved so well, so sweet and calm, so they decided to take me.

They picked me up 3 days later (on the 25th March 2007) because they went on vacation. When they took me home, I tell you I was the most excited dog ever to leave the shelter. However, I stank and had ticks at that time and  the worst part was Laura didn't like me. In fact, she became moody for the next couple of days, always hiding herself in a corner and showing her unhappiness at me.  I don't blame her. I know I was a crazy dog, extremely hyper and annoying! Yeah, my calmness they saw was because I was neutered just the previous day, LOL! I gave them the biggest trick ever!!!

I was around 8 months old when I came to live with them. I was always naughty, trying to push boundaries, breaking rules, being naughty, what an adolescent boy does, basically. Oh, and although I was neutered, I just love to cock my leg and mark everywhere! Hey, I'm a MAN!

Somehow, I have calmed down a lot a year later. I am no longer crazy or hyper, but quite the contrary. 

Laura and I had our ups and downs together. I would try and get her to play, and sometimes she would submit, other times, she would assume her role as uppity leader and growl at me. Well, at least, she got over having another one at home to share her territory. And the best part of it all is, I think Laura had finally accepted me and she likes me :)

A year later, a pretty girl called Hana joined our family. I liked her very much because she was gentle and sweet and one day, she brought another puppy into our family and I am sure you all know who she is! I'd better stop and not talk about her here!

me, Laura and Hana

me, Laura and Eva

Oh, it works! We can comment in time to say we are so glad that your family picked you, Mika, even though maybe you weren't what they had in mind. Sometimes the right families and the right doggies come together despite the confused intentions of the humans involved.

lotsa licks, Lola

I am glad you got your own post. Miss Eva can be a bit of the princess, eh? You are one feisty little dog. I bet you raised a lot of you know what when you first went to your furever home, but now look at you. All grown up and living the good life.
