Like a Celebrity

And the name is….


After much deliberation during the first few days on what to name the newest Stamford/ Middlebury superstar,  I have decided to go with Mia. No extreme sentimental tie here, but it's a name I've always been fond of and it seems to fit her personality well. Thanks to everyone for all the name suggestions. 

Mia has been making a ton of friends in all shapes and sizes.  Ranging from 2 English bulldogs named Annie and Fire to Cody, a 9 month-old mini-dachshund.  Mia already has a social calendar forming. (A play date is planned with Lexi when Lexi returns to Middlebury from her Florida home next week.)  Another new friend is George, one of the friendly doorman at Sloan. George kindly provided unlimited cool, filtered water for Mia. Needless to say, Mia stole George's heart immediately.

Yesterday, Mia was most definitely queen of the castle at Sloan and throughout all of the Big City.  She experienced her first trip to Bloomingdale's and Louis Vuitton to hang out while I got a refreshing shave after treatment.  Mia was well-behaved and even the doctors loved her!  Mia was stopping people and turning heads on the streets of New York. Being with Mia is like hanging out with a celebrity. People are always whipping out their iPhones and asking if it's OK to take her picture!

Thanks for all your support and for following this blog.  Check back as we will be catching up on our postings.

Here is a pic of Miss Mia resting with Lis before her 1st trip to the Big Apple!



P.S. Mia could also be called, "Mia Fomo".  As in FOMO, or "fear of missing out"!  Mia is very inquisitive and doesn't want to miss a thing happening!

Hi Joe,

It is amazing how much attention little animals get isn't it? Mia is absolutely adorable and you are seriously making me reconsider whether or not I should get a monkey or a dog like yours :-)

The only fear I have with a little dog is I might run over it it with my wheelchair :-)

I hope your treatment went well at the hospital and that you are staying positive during such a hard time. If you ever want to chat please feel free to give me a call...your sister has my number.

So, a trip to Bloomingdale's, I find, always lifts the spirit! (Especially if you got the buy some fun stuff).

Sending you and the entire family so much love, hugs and positive energy.
