Meet Mia!

Our foster puppy, Mia!

Meet the newest member of the Wasatch & Beyond adventure team: Mia!

We've been going back and forth on getting a puppy for a few months now, but for now we decided to bring home a foster dog for a while and help her find a new home. We picked up Mia yesterday (the rescue agency named her Miette, which is French for "small", but we are just calling her Mia) from the Perfect Pointers rescue operation in SLC. She's not a purebred (probably half German Shorthair Pointer and half "nobody knows"), but she's super sweet and lots of fun. Mia is about 8 months old and weighs 30 lbs. We took her on her first mountain hike today (Mt Aire, 8602 feet) and she did awesome! Now she's just relaxing on the couch. Hopefully we'll find her a great home soon... but not too soon, because in the meantime we're looking forward to having a ton of fun with this little sweetheart!

  1. Aww, adorable. She'll have quite the challenge trying to keep up with you guys!

  2. What a beauty!
    I wish more parks allowed dogs in our area.

  3. She's a great pup... it was really tough leaving her home when we went to work today!

  4. How do you sneak her into the state parks?

  5. I don't know, we haven't taken her anywhere she isn't supposed to be!
