Seven things of Millie and Me


Seven things I’ve learned about myself while learning about Millie:
1) We both like treats! She will eat any human treat, if allowed. I will not eat her puppy treats.

2) Millie shakes like a Chihuahua when she is met with adversity; I just run the other way.

3) Millie will climb in the dishwasher to lick the dirty dishes clean; I will not. I just close the door, push the button on the machine and leave it to the dishwasher to lick the dishes clean.

4) Millie likes her belly rubbed, will tempt you to do so, then bite you. I don’t like my belly rubbed and will bite, if you try.
5) Neither of us like “talking” in the mornings. I drink coffee to wake up. She goes back to bed to wake up.

6) We both have short attention spans and will chase available butterflies, except, if Millie catches one, she will eat it. I will not. I promise.
7) She growls at strangers. ME TOO!

Hey who is that? Am I not enough puppy for this household?
What's your name? Let me help you down out of this chair.
You look like someone I know, but I just can't put my paw on it. May I chew on you until it comes to me? Yes? No? Say something!
I can't tell what's up or down with this dog, one big hairy mess. Gee I'm glad I don't look like that.
Yesterday, we celebrated my mom’s birthday even though her birthday was last week. My sister decided to play a prank on me with a stuff puppy she found that looks a bit like Millie. Millie was only impressed once she had her teeth on it.  

My son is still improving from his stroke. To say that he is night and day from May 30th is an understatement. He is still going to therapy 3-4 days a week. Prayers needed that his employer will keep his job open for him. Thanks for your thoughts, prayers and inquiries. I appreciate you all!

  9. I've recently read a book called The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science by Norman Doidge. It's amazing. One person mentioned in the book had a complete stroke and couldn't do anything. The doctors had even given up hope but because of something in our brains called neuro plasticity, the man had a complete recovery. I really recommend reading the book.
    Love to hear about your dog too!

  13. You've made my day in so many ways: I applaud that you will not lick the dishes clean or follow Millie's example and eat butterflies. I also was heartened to learn of your son's continued improvement. May his boss be a kind, good person. That's what I'm thinking and sending out your way.
