The most girly of girls

Meet Mia, a four-year-old toy poodle that enjoys long walks along the Docklands waterfront and a trip to the hairdressers/dog-groomer every six weeks.

Mia is the adorable and intelligent pooch of Docklands pioneers Lea and Paul O’Halloran, and may just be the most spoiled dog in Docklands.

“She’s our baby, now that all our kids are grown up. She’s very spoilt and even has a different colour collar and leash for every day and pearls for the special occasions,” Lea said.

Known affectionately as “Miss Mia” to Lea and Paul, the gorgeous dog also loves to be pampered and has a fondness for the hairdryer and grooming kit.

Lea said: “She loves having a bath and the hairdryer and every time I get the grooming kit out she comes running. She’s definitely a girly girl.”

Mia is also a very playful and affectionate dog and keeps all the dogs at doggy day-care entertained when she goes once a week.

“They have a small, medium and large pen, and she’s a real leader so she’ll play with all of the small dogs, but once she’s bored of them she’ll squeeze through the slats, bypass the medium dogs and play with the big dogs.”

Mia may be the most spoilt dog in Docklands, but why wouldn’t she be … she thinks she’s human and that may just be because she doesn’t smell like a dog and rarely barks.

“We did a lot of research before we got her and toy-poodles make great apartment dogs. I can definitely recommend them,” Lea said.
