Yesterday... I lost a close friend.
Mika (left) & Chibi (right) @ Santa Cruz
She was Miss Independent and the family princess. The world revolved around her and we loved her for it. And now that she left us to be with her sister... she's leaving behind a lot of sad people who will cherish the wonderful memories she provided her friends and family.
Mika (two months old)
Thank you Mika for bringing joy and happiness into so many peoples lives for the past eleven years. It's during difficult times like right now, that I will picture your beautiful smile, warm eyes, silky soft fur, and wagging tail then remember the times you stubbornly laid down in the middle of the street refusing to move unless your were given a treat.
I love you Mika! Rest easy girl. And tell Chibi I said hello.

There are only a handful of things in life that bring joy into my life as much as collecting cards. Mika was one of them. Here's a collection that I've put together that combines both of those things:

2018 Upper Deck Canine Collection #166
