The first Mi-Ki registry, is registered under one of the three different kennel name Maureen Westburg made use of at the time. The three Kennel names that Maureen used in Chanting, Kea Huna and the T-Nee. These different Kennel name, all in all Mi-Ki pedigrees, as all Mi-Ki's came from the same bloodlines.
It is also believed that it took Maureen 10 years, from 1981 to 1991, to create the breed now known as Mi-Ki. When Maureen had developed his beloved little jewel of a dog, she was living in Milwaukee, WI, USA.
