Me in my Norwester (a present from Barb)

Hi there! My name is Mykka and I used to be a puppy mill dog. I got rescued, but then I was in a home where the owners weren't very nice to me. I had never been toilet trained properly, and I just didn't know I was supposed to do all that "stuff" outside or on special papers.

I ended up at the Ottawa Humane Society and because of my partial Chihuahua background I was given over to The Chihuahua Rescue & Transport (CHRT) guys. At the time of the transfer, the Vet at the Humane Society estimated my age to be 10 years.

On January 18th 2002 my picture appeared in the Kanata Kourier-Standard weekly newspaper as the "Pet of the Week". Well my "Mom" asked to meet me, so I was delivered to her that very same day. She had a great bed for me to sleep in but I told her I would rather sleep with her in the 'big' bed. We watched some TV ('yawn') and she scratched my tummy ('my favorite!'), and then she turned out the light to go to sleep. Well! when I scratched at the covers and nosed my way down under them and snuggled up close and fell asleep - Mom was hooked for life!

I know she just loves me to pieces! We go for walks every day (except for the winter - my short legs and tiny feet just can't navigate in the snow and salt); Mom brushes me ('my favorite!'); mom puts a cookie into my squeaky toy and tosses it for me to run after ('my favorite'); When I do my "stuff" in the right place I get a treat,(tiny steak pieces - 'my favorite'); and my Mom makes my food at home - yummy lean ground beef and chicken with brown rice and pureed vegetables (my favorite!).

My Mom's Vet thinks I was only 7 or 8 years of age when she adopted me, so that would make me about 14 or 15 years old now. Aw heck! Age is only important if you are cheese! (Cheese - my favorite!).

If I sometimes make a mistake with my "Stuff" my Mom never punishes me because she loves me. So I am here to stay forever with my Mom (my very favorite!!!).

I was so sorry to hear of Gus's passing. He & Mykka are, no doubt, playing together at Rainbow Bridge, waiting for the day that we appear.

Love Mykka's Mom

Mykka meet Miki (pro. Mee-kee)
by: Cassie

I opened this link because my Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix makes the same face when I put any kind of clothes on her or when she sees a camera. I actually laughed when I saw her name as I named my mix Miki. It sounds like Mykka found a really great home and I am happy for any dog who can make it from a bad place to a happy home. They deserve so much love when they have that bad of a beginning. Congrats Mykka!!

Great story!
by: Sheila

Hey Janet! What a cute pup... And a wonderful story. She's gone to that great doggie place in the sky. How wonderful for you to have her to share your life for the years you "co-habitated".
All the best.

Myyka had a great life with her adopted mom Janet.
by: Irene scott.

Hi Janet.

What a wonderful story about MYYKA. I remember the day you adopted her, you were so happy to get this poor little bitten up little pooch. You were a wonderful Mom to Myyka, you gave her all the love and care that she deserved.

I am so happy that Myyka went peacefully. I know you will miss her very much, she was a beautiful little girl and you made her feel so welcomed in your home, you are a fine person and a wonderful friend.

Irene Scott.

Wonderful Story of a Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix rescue

I really enjoyed your story. I think you are wonderful to provide such a precious little dog such a wonderful home for life. And since she looks so much like my dog, it makes the story even more special to me.

More Mykka pictures
by: Frank

Mykka is a lovely dog and we would like to see more. I know there is a picture out there where she does not want to give autographs ;-). It would be great if it were posted in this section of the site since we cannot post directly in the slide show.

"Norwester" Mykka
by: Sandy

It is so great to see a rescued pet being pampered like Mykka.
They certainly deserve more than they started out with...
Thanks, Janet for being a loving Mommy and a good person. Wish all the puppies and other animals in the world could be so lucky.

A wonderful story

Oh what a beautiful story told so well by Mykka;
I've known most of Janet's animals over the past 30 years and they have had all the love & care she so readily gives.

Don't you just love a happy story that makes you smile?
Thanks for sharing with me.

Mykka
by: Barb

I really believe that Mykka found the one and only person, that very special person who was meant to be her Mom! I know them both, and the minute I saw them together, I knew! A perfect match!
