Mia was very special. She was the best dog! She had many adventures in her life. She was born in Oregon and lived in Alaska before moving to Arizona. She spent time with our other rescue dog, Chuy. She enjoyed him but she totally bossed him around. Chuy ate when Mia let him eat. We went on many adventures. She hiked up Camelback Mountain twice with us, she hiked up South Mountain with her human siblings, she kayaked with us on the Salt River, we went to dog parks and many walks. We also took her to a dog beach in San Diego with three other dogs, which she enjoyed very much. Mia was very cute, strong and brave. She had confidence and attitude. She loved to eat and play. She lived a great life and was two months shy of her 15th birthday. She was very sweet and loving and adored so much by all of us. We will always miss her. She brought our family so much joy. Our world is darker without her but our lives were enriched by her. She will always be in our hearts until we see her again.
