Meet Millie.

This is Millie (Mildred) Mary-Lou.

She's our new dog.

She arrived today, on Vivi's 1st birthday.

She's from a high-kill shelter in Tennessee. She was surrendered because her previous owners, "had a baby" and was fostered by two of our favorite people in Ohio who are helping the world by saving one dog at a time. I saw a picture of her several weeks ago and thought, "Hmmm... maybe we need her."

All the stars aligned and the logistics worked themselves out and she arrived to us safe and sound.

She's great.
We think she's about 10 or 11 months old and we think her name has always been Millie. (We have no intentions of changing it.) However, we added the Mary-Lou. Mildred was Craig's great grandma, Mary Lou was my Grandma.

We're not too sure of her breed. Maybe some Havanese, a bit of Affenpinscher and possibly some shih tzu? Whatever it is, it works.

I think she's part ewok.

So far, so good. She's fit in to our chaos quite well and she and Ferg seem to be fast friends... well, except for a skirmish over a dog bone.

She's pretty cute, huh?

We love her already.



  1. Oh. My. Goodness. She's adorable!

  2. OMG!!! I Love her! I am so touched by the story and of course she will fit in! My heart is smiling for you all!!!

  3. Oh my goodness...she is SO cute! Look at that face :)

    Congrats! I am so happy for you guys, I hope she is the perfect fit for your family!

  4. i was waiting to hear about her! :) she looks a wee bit nervous in the photo, but i'm sure she'll adjust to the paparazzi and two pretzels lifestyle soon enough. fun fun!

  5. Awww, what a cutie!

    You are an amazing person.

  6. I thought she was cute and then you called her Ewok. Dying!! Ewok doggies!

    LOVE IT!

  7. Awwww! She's so cute & fuzzy!

    Yay for doggie siblings! (We are very close to adding another canine member to our family as well.)

  8. Millie Mondays? =)

  9. awwww! I bet you guys are so excited. She is so cute!!

  10. I'm so glad she arrived safely and is getting along (mostly) with Ferg! Her face is so precious. :)

  11. 1). it's admirable that you've taken in little Millie.

    2). though i cannot imagine any of your dogs being as fantastic as the first 2, i'll give Millie a shot. Ferg turned out to be the perfect little sis to Nattie...

    3). i cannot yet see Millie's lower lip, but i presume i will want to put lipstick on it in the same way that i want to do this to The Ferg?

    4). can't wait to meet Millie since meeting Millie would necessitate my traveling to Cabo.

  12. Awww, we miss her so much already. :) I feel sure she's going to have a wonderful life with you and the family, K.
