Mia Celebrates a Birthday (seven dog years) at Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing

Many residents at Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing enjoy their dogs and are often seen walking them along the paths and trails near Lake Massasoit.


When the youngest of the four-legged companions recently turned one (one human year, seven dog years), her mama threw her a birthday party on the patio.  Mia is a Chihuahua whose sweet disposition has made her many friends. They came out in full force to celebrate her birthday--both her four footed and two footed friends.

Forty five humans and six dogs celebrated with cake, presents, lots of sniffing, laughter and music (Who Let the Dogs Out, B.I.N.G.O. and more).  After the party, Mia was dog-tired and went back to her apartment to take a nap.

Needless to say, Loomis Lakeside at Reeds Landing is a very welcoming place for pets.
