A New Home for Leah and Mij

This blog has nothing to do with rug hooking or antiques......altho, come to think of it, I see a rug of this adorable dog in the future.  My daughter Leah just got home from her summer theatre gigs, moved into a new house in Lincoln and waited 24 hours to get a dog.  She has been wanting a dog for years and it just never worked out.  She was all prepared to hit the pound and rescue sites when I got a call from her brother, Will.  He had a dog, Mij, who is just a year old.  She is a Hanging Tree, Border Collie cross, bred to be a cattle dog.  This little cattle dog prefers being a couch potato and Will thought she might make a nice house dog for  his sister, Leah.  We zipped up to Burwell today and picked up Mij.  Well, actually, first we gave her a bath cause she smelled a little like a cow.  She seemed to enjoy the bath and all the attention, said good bye to Will and ranch life and jumped into the car to head for her life as a city dog.  Leah already has plans to use her as 'Sandy' in ANNIE.  I know, the spotted dog might pose a problem being used as Sandy, but we have already solved that by making a few script changes.  We even thought she could be in SEUSSICAL, the Musical.  I definitely see her in a little ruffled clown collar.  Oh yes, hang on are in for a new kind of adventure.   Leah is already planning to have bandanas of all colors, so their outfits can match.  Some of this stuff, I will keep from brother Will.  It might all seem a bit much for his cowboy ways.  Best he not know all the details of Mij's transformation from country girl to city girl.   

Til next time,   Janice


  1. AW! She's sweet. Yeah for Leah. Yeah for Mij.

  2. She is sweet. I don't think she knows what has happened. It may take a few days for it all to sink in.
