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.
