Mika's mom says: My husband and I adopted Mika from the Ottawa Humane Society when she was 8 years old. We had no idea what we were doing but couldn't have found a nicer dog. Mika is the sweetest girl. She gets along with our two cats, is gentle with children and is a joy to have every day. She is very playful and loves her daily walks, camping, hiking and going on vacation with us. Mika has enriched our lives and taught us to live in the moment. We're very lucky. I would encourage anyone to adopt an older dog from their local shelter.
