It’s about time I introduce you to Mimi, our much loved two-year-old Jack Russell Terrier.
Mimi joined our family last June after a chance viewing on Craigslist. We were in the market for an animal, but we had already agreed that we’d get a cat since they are more independent than dogs and if we were to leave the house for a day, we wouldn’t have to worry about finding someone to let the dog out. As I was scanning the listings, one caught my eye. It wasn’t a cat listing, but one for a Jack Russell. I clicked it just to see the picture and found this face staring back at me.
I don’t think we looked at a single cat posting. We emailed the owner and made an appointment to go see her. It was love at first site! We took her home and have just fallen more in love with her and her antics every day. My husband calls her Mini (like a Mini Cooper, because she is little and fast), which is funny because that was her original name with a different spelling. I liked the name Mimi, because I had just seen Rent and wanted her to have a Broadway name. (more…)
