Hi everyone it’s Millie here. First before I tell you about my day at play mommy wants me to clear up any confusion over yesterday’s post. You don’t have to worry about the pigeons finding enough to eat because crazy people come and throw stale bread for them all the time (this isn’t really good for them). The other thing is that the picture was taken from the safety of the parking lot where this boat launch hut is located on Irondequoit Bay so neither of my parents risked their lives for a cool shot. They would never do that sort of thing because that is what a long camera lens is for. There is plenty of ice fishing on the bay during the winter, but that is for the crazy people (my mommy told me to say that).

Okay now on to the real reason for my post today! My new friend Remy invited me to come to her play group that meets on Saturday afternoons so mommy and daddy took me there this past weekend. The play group meets at Tails of Success in Rochester, New York.

There were lots of dogs and their parents there and at first it was a bit crazy. After a while we all took a short break and things settled down a bit.

All the dogs got along pretty well and the people were really nice too.

I especially liked this nice man who was very good at giving scritches. You will see in the video that I wasn’t the only one to enjoy his loving.

Mom created a video of some of the fun I had. Remy and I had a nice wrestling session toward the end. It was a lot of fun and I hope to go back again soon.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

By the way Remy and I have another walk scheduled for New Year’s Day. I can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year than by taking a walk with my new friend!

Hi everyone, it’s Millie here! I want to tell you about my new friend Remy and her mom Debra. Debra is a friend of my mom’s and she posted on Facebook that she was looking for some friends for her new puppy Remy.

When I saw that I made my mom reply right away.

You see I had asked Santa Paws for a brother for Christmas, but I figured if that didn’t happen a new friend could be almost as good. Well Remy replied back to me and our mom’s scheduled a play date for us on Christmas Eve.

Remys facebook response

We met at the Penfield Town Hall where there is a really nice park with lots of walking paths and trails through the woods. Our mom’s thought it would be good to meet at a neutral location for our first time.

Remy and I are about the same size and we hit it off right from the start. It was fun all walking together as a pack.

We took a break from walking for a little wrestle mania.

Then we settled down for some more walking.

I also showed Remy my fine rock climbing skills.

Our town, Penfield, is known for its huge rocks and these are all over the park. We walked for over an hour and had a great time!

Remy and I took a break at the end while the parents talked. Daddy came too and took all the pictures for us.  I had so much fun and I can’t wait for our next play date. We are going to try to get together at least once a week and maybe I will join her at her Saturday play group too. Aren’t friends the best?!

That’s What Friends Are For

On last week’s Wordless Wednesday post Lily Belle left me a very cryptic comment that said, “Millie, there’s a top-secret letter heading your way…..” Well of course that made me (and my mom) very curious. What could be so top-secret? What was the letter about? We had already received our Christmas card from Lily Belle and her family so we checked the mailbox every day and finally on Friday it showed up.

Millie - Card and Dollar from Lily

I took it to mommy’s sewing room to open it. Inside was a pretty pink card with a dollar in it. There was a note inside so I asked mommy to read it for me.

Here is what it said:

Hi Millie,

Would you please do us a favor? Please put this dollar towards the fund for your Mom’s new Kindle. Sounds like she needs all the help she can get. (tee~hee~hee). We don’t want the Repo men to come a knockin’.


Lily & Muffin

Well I had to ask my mom who the Repo men were and why Lily and Muffin were worried about them knocking on our door. She explained to me that if people can’t pay for the stuff they buy, then big scary men come and take it all back! Oh dear I sure hope mommy has enough money to pay for her Kindle.

Thank you Lily & Muffin. You are such good friends for thinking of us. Every little bit will help to keep those scary Repo men away. 😉

Hi everyone it’s Millie here! First I want to update you on the holiday card count.


42 Snail Mail cards

13 e-cards

Mom & Dad

2 Snail Mail cards

As you can see I am much more popular than my parents. The worst part for them is that those 2 cards include 2 half cards that were addressed to the whole family! BOL!

Okay, now on to the real reason for todays post. I have learned a new way to entertain myself and as you will see the parents must have been entertained too since they just stood there and took a video of me.

Let me explain just a little first. There is a small grouping of about 3 dwarf Deutzia (Deutzia gracilis ‘Nikko’) near the back door and instead of just coming inside one day I decided to explore these plants a bit more. I am sure there are a ton of moles, voles, and/or mice living under them and I think that is what got me started. After a while I just couldn’t help myself. Take a look at this video and you will see what I mean.

If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it.

Boy that sure was fun! Mommy said it looked like I was jumping on a trampoline.  I would have never stopped if it weren’t for daddy putting an end to it.
