Mija was a four-legged relative beloved by many throughout the Mission District and the world. She was adopted by her human, El Tecolote’s archivist and lifelong advocate of the arts, Linda Wilson, in 2009. Her madrina, former Tecolote photo editor and now renowned photographer Amanda Lopez, found Mija wandering the streets of Sacramento and knew the perfect home for Mija would be by Linda’s side.
Mija was a sassy white chihuahua diva who could rock any color and style while strutting around Harrison Street. She enjoyed T-R-E-A-T-S, barking at delivery drivers, scavenging for mystery snacks on the sidewalk when her mom looked away, and telling skateboarders to stay in their lane.
PAWS (Pets Are Wonderful Support) was always there to provide support Linda and Mija with food, medical care, and an army of volunteer walkers who had the distinct honor of picking up Mija’s poop.
She was a distinguished pup who loved her human momma every day and will leave a legacy of sass and a smile to all who will forever remember her.
She was, and will forever be, a good girl.
