A New Friend

I have a few new pieces of jewelry I’ve been too busy to photograph, but in the mean time, I’d like to introduce you to a new friend of mine:  Millie.

I think I’m in love!

Millie is a little wisp of a dog who inspires many hugs and kisses.  She is a six pound chihuahua who was born without kneecaps and can’t walk.  I met her today for the first time because I am volunteering to walk the dogs of a client of PAWS/LA who is recovering from surgery.  The client has two other dogs–Teko and Daisy, both of which are very sweet.  But it’s Millie who really warms my heart to pieces.  I would take her home with me if I could, to be honest.

Despite not being able to walk, Millie goes with me on the walk with Teko and Daisy.  She has a little doggie pouch that I wear and I take her out and put her on the ground at various times during the walk so she can “do her business.”  Teko and Daisy patiently wait for Millie and while I can’t say the whole process runs like clockwork, it’s less cumbersome than I thought it would be.

I’ll be volunteering twice a week for about two months, so I’ll have some time to get to know Millie, Teko, and Daisy.  I feel lucky about that.

  1. Hey, very cute photo! Millie reminds me of Mr. Winkle from “Sex and the City” (must be the tongue).

  2. She’s awesome! I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. 🙂
