Miri's Got Something To Celebrate!

Today is Miri’s (fka Lena ) THIRD birthday in freedom. She is 11 years young today.

When she came into CP, it was a COLD February day.

February 17, 2006 she was saved. She had her eighth birthday 7 days before Col. Potter brought her in. What a birthday gift it was. Then, not even 12 hours later, she gave birth to her litter of five puppies, and had major surgery to save her life. All under CP’s watchful eye and in CPs loving arms (under the tutelage of Ann and Wayne Stainback).

On February 18th, all four of her surviving puppies: Gerda, Petra, Helga and Hjammer (now Ginger, Gracie, Zoe and Max) will be celebrating their third birthdays. Sadly, one of her little boys, Leif, crossed the RB shortly after birth.

I know I’ve taken better pictures of her, but attached is MY favorite picture of her. Not looking her 11 years at all (and NEVER acting it). She is a testament to WHY ANYONE should adopt a SENIOR Cairn.

(we adopted Miri on Mother’s Day 2006).

  1. Thanks for your update on Miri FKA Lena. Her story in foster care was so dramatic and she had so much to endure, the memories are vivid and it doesn't seem possible that it has been three years already. Love those happy endings.
