Silly Millie

The poor dog, in life the firmest friend.
The first to welcome, foremost to defend.
-Lord Byron

Darling Millie... my firmest friend. She's become quite the little road trip sweetie. These pictures were taken awhile ago, back when she wasn't as eager to poke her nose out the window and let her velvet ears flap in the wind. Back when she was more concerned with only facing towards me and catching a nap.

Millicent. She's growing up quickly and becoming a silly, sweet companion and steadfast protector. Silly Millie.

Is there anything better than a warm little puppy by your side? I'm not sure there is. We're looking forward to a wonderful fall together....

She is beautiful. My two dogs are the best friends a girl could ask for! I stumbled upon your blog and want you to know how much I have enjoyed it! Your posts make my day brighter!

Yeah, there is....well maybe not better, but the same....having a little kitty by your side. Nothing like that either. (as you know....)
Thanks for the sweet pics.

A sweet puppy by your side is truly one of the greatest things there is!! At night, my little Lily lays with her head on the pillow and snores very loudly, right beside my head.....music to my ears!!

Millie is just as adorable as ever!!! I love seeing pictures of her!!

What a beautiful dog! I'm glad you have such a worthy companion there at Freeman House.

Good luck with the pine floors! Hope you're taking some 'before' and 'after' pictures to share.

What a sweet doggy face! Here's to fall, chai tea, orange leaves, puppies in those leaves and spice in the air.

Not being a "dog" person, I just don't know. But I can tell that you and Millie were made for each other. :D

Millie is beautiful! Such a shiny coat & beautiful eyes.
I've never seen a dog sleep like that either---usually they just lie down.
How cuute!
