Another furry little one has come into our orbit and is gently worming her way in.
My close friend whose Aussie, Kelsey passed 2 years before Kona, has been my strongest ally through the grieving process. She dog-sat Kona on several occasions and came to love him, in fact she said he helped open her heart to adopt another companion.
Well a few months ago, this fluffball and her litter showed up at a rescue organization in Northern Ontario. Within a week she was big city bound! She is a mix of tibetan terrier, husky and lab. Her eyes are a milky blue and her coat is soft black, ombre to tan and white. Her name is Miinan, which is Ojibway for blueberries. A nice homage to the fact that wild blueberries grow plentiful in the north.
We call her Min Min or Sprout!
She is playful, sweet, confident and full of beans! Huge personality in such a little creature, it’s remarkable watching her explore. We see her a few times a week and try to take her for a walk, if you can call it that, on weekends.
Min Min has also met our surrogate, Ari, he was so zen but I don’t know if that will be the case when she gets to 6mos. She will be ours for 2 weeks in January when her human mama goes on holiday. I think it will be a test to see if we are ready for a dog and if so would it be a puppy or young adult?
Perhaps the universe is completing a circle, Kona helped my friend open her heart to Miinan and in turn, Min Min is helping open our hearts to ______.
