meet Mia



Posting days: Sunday and Wednesday and, sometimes, maybe, extra ‘news flashes’!


Wednesday March 30th 2016


On a Sunday walk in Highbury Park, soon after I adopted my beautiful Isis, another fluffy grey and white dog appeared, merrily prinking in the long grass. Astonishing! Those amazing ears, flowing and hairy, were strikingly similar to Hairy One’s. As was the very hairy tail.

As I stared at this small Isis look-alike, I suddenly became aware that its human was regarding Isis with similarly rapt attention.

Naturally, we exchanged information. This, she explained, was Mia from Spain who, like Isis, was adopted through Dogwatch. Mia had been with her humans, L and G for several months and although still a very nervous little dog, was gradually becoming more relaxed.

I cursed myself for leaving my camera at home.

On Easter Monday I meet Mia again. A happy and much more confident little dog, she is obviously much loved.

What a pretty dog.

And this time I have my camera.








Isis came from the Aeza cat and dog rescue and adoption centre in Aljezur, Portugal. For information about adopting an animal from the centre, contact or

    The Easter bunny reappeared! So glad you met Mia again.


  2. Lovely to see you and Isis again too! Mia looks so sweet and innocent in your photo: “Oh, this ball, no, I’m not thinking of stealing it, honestly!”
    Is it ok if I share your post (FB)?

    Mia is lovely – her slightly spotted coat and the half-dark face reminds me of English Setter coloring. Did Isis like her??


    • Yes, you’re right. I’d forgotten what an English setter looked like, then the morning after I read your comment, one came into the park. Very similar in their dappled look but, like Mia, with black parts too.
