January 9, 2011 Mika is athletic and chases squirrels

Both Tasha and Mika will chase squirrels when they see them in the yard or on the fence.  A few times we have seen Mika jump up on a table by the utility shed.  On this day I found her jumping up on a small bench and watching a squirrel taunt her from the tree.  For the most part she does not appear to favor her hurt leg (right rear in these photos) when she is active like this.  However, sometimes we can see her limp on her right rear leg, a little bit.  By feeling it we can tell the muscle is somewhat atrophied compared to the other leg.

Good news! Moonsong Malamute Rescue has received a donation from a "Guardian Angel" that will cover Mika's new knee surgery  (Thanks Christine!)    The operation will be performed at the Sun Valley Animal Center near Ketchum, Idaho on Tuesday,January 18, 2010.
