Mitzi was given to Jessie for her 84th birthday on January 4, 2005. When Jessie passed in December 2006 she became the constant companion of Dick. Mitzi went everywhere with Jessie's husband Dick. Dick passed away in November 2009. Mitzi helped to fill the loss of Dione's parents and became the frequent pal of Dick & Jessie's great grandchildren. Mitzi appeared in several Pet Parades with Lauren, Vincent, and Alex. One of her appearances is featured on the Central Park Mural in downtown Faribault.
Mitzi loved to travel with Dick & Jessie and continued on with Dione & Lyle. She visited Iowa, South Dakota, and all the way to Georgia in the R.V.. During her lifetime she has shared her master's with Keka, Jimmy, Tiel and Goes. She hated to be groomed.
Mitzi's 16 years were not without illness. She forged through a few surgical procedures, glaucoma and eventual blindness.
Mitzi will always have a special place in the memories, Lauren, Vincent, Alex, Nick, Lynn, Lyle, and Dione.
Her ashes will be displayed with those of Minnie, Keka, and Jimmy.
