In 2021 the A to Z posts covered Mia’s life in semi-fictional stories.
As a rescue dog Mia did not have it easy in the first 2 years of her life. It affects how she approaches the world, especially new things, but she has come a very long way already. The 2021 posts from A to Z cover her journey in the year after her adoption.

6 themes I’m looking forward to #AprilCountdown #AtoZChallenge
The beauty of the A to Z challenge is the variety of blogs participating. We tend to remain in our comfort zone (I especially like my things just so) but throughout April it’s easy to get swept up by the passion of other bloggers. Here are some I’ve already bookmarked for April.Keep reading
April Theme Reveal – #A2Z22
Hi folks, Mia the adventure dog, is back to write you every day in April during the 2022 A to Z Challenge. We had such great fun last year sharing the stories, and reading yours, that I can’t wait to dive in again. It was a bit of a struggle to decide the theme, there…Keep reading
After April Reflections
April is always special. It’s usually proper spring, lots of sunshine, the promise of a new life. This year it was a little different, we had snow, we had family moving and we had the A to Z challenge. I’ve actually been collecting ideas for it since about September but it turned out to be…Keep reading

A year in the making
It’s been almost a year since I met Missy. Oh how my life has changed, how much joy this year has brought to us both! There were walks, hikes, toys, courses, treats, forests, travel, friends, family, and love, always love. I didn’t know life like this was possible, nor did Missy. She’s given me a…Keep reading
X-tra at home
It’s now been about a month having an extra in our home, Sissy-cat. I was worried at first that she’s gonna turn Missy from me, and she won’t be my human any more but our relationship is still special. It’s only us on the walks and other adventures, Sissy doesn’t bother me, and if anything,…Keep reading
World Animal Day and National Superhero Day
The World Animal Day on the 4th of October is a good reminder for humans not to forget that when they conquered the planet, they made all animals their responsibility. Some, like me, had a bad home, others had no home, and yet another group who had a home but it was humans who took…Keep reading

When you’re unhappy
“Why are you sad?” I asked Missy. “I’m not enough.” “How can you say that?” “It’s true, I’m alone, I’m unloved.” “I’m here, and I love you.” She hugged me with tears in her eyes. But those were not all sad tears any more. I get it. There can be days when you’re not feeling…Keep reading
I now know what Teambuilding is
It was the first day of what I call Adventure Days – Missy calls them the weekend. Despite of the good weather, we started with a short walk in the morning which is a sure sign of Things To Come. There was excitement in the air since last night, Missy had been busy in the…Keep reading
Sticks – the breakthrough in playtime
Have you ever had nothing? No place you could call your own, no possessions, no love. And absolutely no idea about this thing called “playing with toys”. As a first-world dog-mum, Missy bought me stuff when I arrived. A bed, which I loved, leash and collar which were my favourite, food that tasted great and…Keep reading
I have magic to make people happy but my Missy has magic to make me happy. Her massage rubs are able to make me relax, and completely safe. I simply cannot get enough of them! https://www.instagram.com/p/CFMfcMIpeu3/?igshid=1hq07urn74q7iKeep reading
Questions: I’m answering 10 of them
We talk a lot, Missy and I, but this was something different. And loads of fun! Here’s what we did: https://www.facebook.com/miadogadventures/videos/450666829338621/ Then the questions started, and Missy had to comment on them: https://www.facebook.com/miadogadventures/videos/800398450858712/ https://www.facebook.com/miadogadventures/videos/1147560469003448/ https://www.facebook.com/miadogadventures/videos/488268348987159/ https://www.facebook.com/miadogadventures/videos/817625599110225/ I even got confused when answering a very important question! But I’m nothing if not honest. Even if Sissy…Keep reading
Now that Sissy-cat lives with us temporarily, I see how brave she is, and how fearful I am. I’m not a coward, don’t get me wrong, but I don’t have her self-assurance. It seems I’m constantly on the watchout for things that can hurt me, while this thought doesn’t occur to her. I envy how…Keep reading
Order should be respected at all times
One of the things we don’t agree on with Missy is the order of things. She doesn’t follow it. Can you imagine, I never know when she’ll get up or when my next food is going to be… It’s not that she’s ever forgotten it but I can’t plan ahead. And sometimes she’s even trying…Keep reading
