The Prettiest Girl At The Park


Recommended Posts


April 2 2003- July 24th 2014.


We went to Peddler's Village in New Hope, Pa for a meet and greet in July 2007 and there she was, walking across the parking lot to the event. She was gorgeous. She was tall and strong and white with brindle and looked friendly but confident. She had just come up from Florida in one of those large hauls. She was staying with the owners of the Philadelphia Greyhound Connection and in 2 weeks time she would come home with us.


We had our spooky scared Shana at home and we thought our new girl, now named Misha would help give her confidence too. And she did.


Misha also bit her over mini bagels, but that is a story for another time.


Misha had space aggression at first. Who knew? I learned the hard way, getting nicked under the eye when I bent down to snuggle. Oh well, I learned and then she learned that snuggling was the way to go. She became a master snuggler and bed hog!!!


Misha was stunning, people thought she was a boy because she was tall and strong. But she was our girl.

She went on adventures and trips and walks and car rides with us, learned to bark in our faces for treats, kongs, chewys and whatever else she wanted at the time, but who was going to say no to those brown eyes?



She left us way too soon, she was only 11 and a young 11 at that! There is a huge hole in our hearts and we miss her presence already.

Misha, Mishee, Mishkata, Mishi-pishy, crazy girl, Misha-Latisha, just the best girl ever!

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry
