Mickey the Mixed Breed

Dog Breed: Rhodesian Ridgeback

Mickey lives on an acreage near Alberta's Rocky Mountains. She loves vegetables and fruit and especially loves digging up potatoes and stealing peas from Mom's garden in the summer. One of her favorite activities is going for walks in the country - the older she gets the shorter the walks get but the excitement is still there. All you need to do is mention the word "walk" and she will bounce around like a puppy. She also loves sleeping on the bed when no one is looking. Mickey has an amazingly gentle temperament and is incredible with children or anyone else who visits. Mickey has been recently diagnosed with cancer. We don't know how much longer she has but she is still happy and playful and not in any pain. She gets lots of extra treats and hugs now and loves every minute of it.
