Mikki was adopted 4/11/03 from Table Mountain Animal Center, the local animal shelter. She is a 11 lb. Chihuahua mix, about 11 years old as of 2009. Our cat Connie was afraid of dogs so we acquired a cat-sized dog that would be less threatening. Mikki ignores cats so after about a month, Connie got used to her. Mikki is a very sweet, affectionate dog with us though not friendly with strangers or small kids, like most Chihuahuas. Also like most Chihuahuas, she crawls underneath the covers to sleep, not on top. In fact, she loves us to raise the covers so she can go underneath and plop down in a perfect spot. We don't know why she doesn't suffocate but that doesn't seem to be a hazard for Chihuahuas.


Mikki is very bright and active and went to agility class until she got bored with it. She is a "four on the floor" dog—that is, she would rather walk around like a dog than be carried like a toy. She doesn't even like to be in a backpack when I bicycle unless I run her for several miles first to get her worn out. It is difficult to imagine how she became a stray and ended up at the shelter. We got her from the Table Mountain Animal Center in Golden and encourage anyone looking to adopt a pet to visit their local animal shelter (and not a pet store, which typically get their pets from "puppy mills").


We feed Mikki numerous brands of premade frozen raw food. We give her meat-based rather than grain-based treats, like meat jerkies from the natural pet food store, as well as Active Care Joint Treat Chews, to help prevent arthritis. We give Mikki BioPreparation formula F-2+ to help her fully absorb the nutrients in her food and prevent her from developing the degenerative diseases that plague so many dogs, like cancer. Like many toy dogs, she is prone to bad teeth so we have her teeth cleaned frequently by Cindy Lloyd of Natural Pet, who offers anesthesia-free teeth cleaning.


Cajun & Iris

We adopted Cajun and Iris in August 2007 from the Misha May Foundation. Cajun was a Hurricane Katrina rescue in September 2005 when he was 6 months old. He was adopted and went to live with Iris who was 3 years old, but then in July 2006 they both lost their home. Click here to read their story.



We adopted Simba in November 2008 at the age of 8 months from the Cat Care Society to be a playmate for Cajun. He is so young and lively that Cajun fights as often as he plays with him. Simba also drives us crazy at times--we're not used to having such a young, boisterous animal around after years of elderly cats. Everything you have heard about orange cats is true--they are wild and crazy! Apparently the white in Cajun tempers his orange cat craziness.
