The Aerialist

The Aerialist

After a laborious night, her Mama was relieved when she was finally born. She came into this world last - the runt out of a whopping 11 pups! Despite her tiny size, she thrived under her parent’s attentive and loving care.

Being fearless from the start, she was one of the first to venture out of the old potato bin they called home. She soon discovered her love of heights, and felt at ease racing around the barn’s tallest rafters. As her dexterity improved, she began to choreograph and perform shows for her siblings each night after supper. They would all sit and watch in delight as she gracefully jumped from beam to beam – garnering oohs and aahs as she swung and flipped from one piece of twine to the next. You see, she had an extraordinary dream for a mouse – a dream to fly.
