Throw-back Thursday...Our Friend Millie

Some of you may remember our friend Millie.
SHE came to live with her mum when her mum first became ill.
From the start, a  crazy girl, full of character.  She was there when her mum went through numerous painful tests to finally get a diagnosis (POEMS), then Chemo, stem-cell harvesting and transplants.

She'd  welcome the Home Care people who came to help shower her mum and clean the house;  nurses, and therapists.
With Bella, both puppies.
 She was always ready for a game when we came to visit.

Dui and Millie--was Dui ever that small?

She rode on the mobility scooter and wheelchair, when her mum needed them.

Well, her mum is much, much better at the moment, able to enjoy shopping and sewing and her new granddaughter.

Millie and her beloved ball.

But, Millie had to go to the Bridge the other morning quite unexpectedly.
We are a very sad bunch.


  1. We are so sorry to hear about the unexpected crossing of Millie. Run free sweet girl!

  2. Yes we remember Millie and that infectious smile and bubbly attitude.

  24. Oh Millie it is sad that you had to go ~ but Millie gave so much in her short time. Pet companions can get us through so much.
    May the good earth be soft under you Millie
    when you rest upon it,
    and may it rest easy over you when,
    at the last, you lay out under it,
    And may it rest so lightly over Millie
    that your spirit may be out
    from under it quickly,
    and up, and off, to the Bridge.
    Sweet William The Scot
