I will be on vacation next week and it's Maiya's Gotcha Day so I am posting it today.

It is a VERY special day for her and us too.

It's been 1 year since we adopted her and a looong year at that. We have been told she probably wouldn't make it this long. We've been told so many negative things about her and our desire to manage her MegaE instead of putting her down.

However, we didn't listen to anything but our hearts and Maiya's. She is such a strong dog and has made it through so much this past year. She just keeps on goin! I hope it stays this way.

Happy gotcha day our sweet sweet defiant little girl!!! Your a PITA but I can't imagine you not being here to make us laugh with your dorky ways!!

I love you!

We swear she's part frog. She sits like one (in pic), she sure as h*ll can jump like one (8 ft walls are no match for her), and her throat breathes in and out like a frogs does due to her MegaE. lol Oh and she loooves eating grasshoppers.

Thank you all! Everyone's support here with her has always meant so much to us!

Maiya was 2 years old when we adopted her. We are unsure to if she's had megaE since birth but most vets are assuming since we couldn't find an underlying cause and the idiopathic MegaE doesn't usually show up until 5 or older.

Of course the people that dumped her off at the shelter said she was healthy as a horse aside from the fact you could see every bone in her body.

I was going to wish you a happy birthday but forget it now. It's windy, dark and raining here and you're surfing at the beach (do we have one of those faces blowing raspberries?!!!
)

Seriously though, happy, happy birthday/anniversary. You are one very lucky girl, and your humans are very lucky too!!

LOL!

Maiya had the best time surfing!

I really hope we have made her life worth all the crap she goes through with her illness.
