Mia does not like the rain. If it were up to her she wouldn't go out in the rain at all. Many times she will whine to go out but when she gets to the front step and sees that it is raining and pouring she decides to not go out. She never has an accident but I'm always shocked at how long she would rather hold her bladder than just go quickly out in the yard lol. She also avoids puddles like the plague. So while we take a walk if there is a puddle she purposefully goes around it. Its funny to watch but I don't like the smell of wet dog so I think it works out perfectly :)

She is easily scared. I mean seriously. Any loud noise and the dog has a heart attack. Its ridiculous.
She loves to LICK. She will lick you all over if you let her. It drives me bananas but it is super cute. :)
Those EYES! That NOSE! are the cutest you've ever seen! ;)
She is very expressive with her ears. One of my absolute favorite parts of her are her ears. I LOVE how expressive she is with her ears and how they change with her attitude. They are floppy but very light so with the wind or while we are walking they flop all over the place. Sometimes her ears will be in different directions sometimes because she is listening to everything. When she does something wrong they flatten.
So that is our Mia! :) Happy Second Birthday Mia! :)

I'm going to take a Michelle Moment and being really honest. I also want to take the time on this post to say that the second anniversary of our beloved Kiwi's tragic death was in November. While Mia has been a huge help in the healing process, and has been a perfect fit for our family.. it still doesn't feel good two years later and I still miss Kiwi. I do sometimes feel bad for Mia because my heart changed the day we lost Kiwi.
Please don't misunderstand me-- I Love Mia, I do. But when you lose a pet before his/her timing in a tragic way it changes you. And knowing that you would not have gotten said pet if the previous pet was still around can hurt sometimes. I mean its not like we had Kiwi for a day and then lost him. We had him for five years. He was with us through every move we made, he would sit on my shoulder during ever paper I wrote for school, he was with me throughout my first pregnancy and loved to sit on my growing belly. He was a part of our family. I missed not having him around during my second pregnancy.. there are many times I miss him. It still hurts.
Even if you don't like birds or understand birds you can understand the loss of a beloved pet before his/her time. my Kiwi was the most amazing cuddly bird ever. My relationship with him will never be replicated and I absolutely loved him. I'm so thankful we had him for five years and I will cherish those five years forever. RIP Kiwi 06/01/2006-11/19/2011♥
