Hi everyone! Today is Millie’s 5th birthday*. It’s hard to believe that the little, floppy eared, bundle of spunk that came to us at 5 months old is 5 already.

Millie on her first day in her forever home

She showed her true nature on her first day here when she decided to pick a fight with one of our garden statues.

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

That looks perfect dad. Can we get it please?

She had her daddy wrapped around her little paw right from the start but seriously who could resist those eyes?

I’m cute huh?

For a while both of her ears were floppy…

…but eventually her right ear started to straighten up.

Her love for snow became apparent during her first winter.


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

In April of 2013 she welcomed Walter with open paws.

What’s daddy eating?
I don’t know but he better give me some first.

Right from the start Millie has been the happiest when she is hanging out in her backyard.

I love laying under my favorite tree

Of course she enjoys sharing her yard with Walter too.

Millie has some quirks that always make us smile.

This is what Millie does every day after breakfast. It took setting up a “hidden” camera to get it on video. If you can’t see the video you can go here to view it

One thing Millie does real well is snuggle.

You call this snuggling? I say she is hogging the bed.

Her favorite place to snuggle is right next to her dad.

Did I mention how much she likes the snow…

…or how much she enjoys hanging out in the yard under her favorite tree?

With all the work going on in the kitchen right now there won’t be much of a celebration but we will make it up to her when the project is finished. We would like to thank Madi and her mom for sending such a sweet birthday card to Millie.

Don’t tell dad that Madi came for a visit

She also received one from Walter’s sweetie Tuiren and her family.

Thanks to our friends for sending such thoughtful cards.

Happy Birthday Millie! We love you!

* We really don’t know when her birthday is but today is a close approximation.

Hi Everybody it’s Millie here!

As you heard we had a ton of snow this past week. I love to bury my head in the snow and sniff around under there.

Since I’m a black dog in a snow storm no editing was needed for these pictures.

Today we would also like to remember one of the hosts of the Black & White Sunday blog hop. The sweet Sugar the Golden Retriever who took her journey to the Rainbow Bridge this week. She was loved by all who met her and will be sadly missed.

I’m participating in the Black & White Sunday blog hop.

Hi Everybody it’s Millie here!

Hey mom, I'm bored!

Hey mom, I’m bored!

The weather has been terrible for getting outside to play in our yard. This is the face I give my mom or dad when I want them to do something for me. Do you think they can make it snow so we can play in the white fluffy stuff?

Hi Everybody it’s Walter here!

Nothing better than snuggling with your daddy

There’s nothing better than snuggling with your daddy

In case you are wondering I find this position to be very comfortable. I always feel secure in my dad’s arms. Happy Father’s Day!
