Caryn Spain and her dog Mojita are residents of White Center, love to go to West Crest dog park and like the community in general.
Pet of the week: Mojita is a memory come back to life
Caryn Spain got her dog Mojita about 18 months ago as a rescue dog when the Labradoodle was only 3 months old. "She's a rescue dog from the Humane Society," said Spain.
Spain claims that Mojita is a reincarnation of a previous dog she owned, named Mojo and that she found Mojita because, "She called me. She said 'go to the Humane Society pound' and they were pushing her right through the back of the cage when I walked in and I said, 'That's my dog.' It was just kismet."
"It's kind of like with the Dalai Lama how they go out and look for the baby," Spain said. Even though her former dog was a Chesapeake Bay Retriever she believes Mojita embodies his spirit. "When I first got her I named her 'Choco' because of her coat but she wouldn't come to that name. Then someone said, 'Oh it's Mojo, it's Mojita,' and she went, 'Oh that's me' and responded and that's how we knew. Then we started realizing that there's a lot of behavior related to Mojo."
Mojita eats whenever she wants to and right now has a premium dry puppy food.
Because she is part Labrador Retriever, "She loves to retrieve so she has tennis balls."
She's got a boyfriend, another labradoodle who lives in the neighborhood.
Believe it or not Mojita will run on a treadmill quite happily twice a day at 3.5 mph for twenty minutes. She needs to go to the dog park once a day and have two walks a day explained Spain.
Mojita enjoys sitting in chairs and will even sit up on a tall chair if given the opportunity.
Spain travels many months out of the year and said that Mojita is wonderful travel dog. She just lies down and goes to sleep.
Puppy Perfectors are responsible for Mojita's training and her fur is a bit of a "lion cut" which Spain said she has been working on.
