You've seen her pictures, but I would like to formally introduce you all to Mia!

We named her Mia, after Amelia Bedilia because the lil girl is such a klutz! The first night home she bumped into the wall, the table, the doorframe, the window...you name it and she hit her head on it! After we picked the name, we also found some other reasons why we loved the name.

1. When we get upset with her we can yell, "Mama Mia!"
2. When I was little I wanted to be Minnie Mouse when I grew-up. I had 2 hampsters and both of them I named "Minnie" after my idol. Well, Mia DOES have the ears...and it sounds a little like Mini!
3. She just looks like a Mia!
4. She goes "Missing in Action" quite a bit and we have to go searching for her.

She has already wormed her way into our hearts and we can't imagine not having her here! Although she does have a few faults...like chewing on cords, shoes, fingers, toes...pretty much everything...she really is a great puppy!

*She is already on the path to being potty-trained, and has only had about 1-2 accidents a day.
*Will sleep until 5:30-6:30am most mornings.
*She is FEARLESS! She isn't afraid of the vacuum, thunder, lightening, fireworks, blow-dryers, etc.
*Hygiene won't be an issue. She loves water and jumps in the shower on her own.
*She loves being brushed.

It's been crazy since we brought her home but she is adapting amazingly well and knows who her mom and dad are! Yesterday she ran around the backyard and helped dad trim all the tree branches. I can't wait for more adventures with our Mia!

...a few more photos of our little girl!

Her first car ride. She was just dying to lick Spencer all over his face!

Playing tug with "rope toy". Her favorite game!

Running after dad in the backyard... She was "helping" him trim the trees.
