Patricia, Millie, the paper
Got that dratted paper!
Where do we go now?

Hi there! I’m Millie

“I’m not sure what happened to me. My humans took me in to a pound. I was there two days with a bunch of other dogs. They said I was supposed to be euthanised but I don’t know what that means.
Then a nice lady from ‘Paws for Life’ came to pay some fees. She said I was going to somebody called “rescue”. Then I jumped into another lady’s car to go to big parking lot where I got to catch a piece of paper blowing around. The lady gave me a big hug and said I’d be safe now. She started to call me Millie. I like that.

She said she wanted to take some pictures and I wanted to catch that piece of paper that was rolling around. I then got into her car and we drove farther on to a farm with eleven other big white dogs like me. Well actually, they were all bigger than I am.
The next day, she took me in the car again to a place called Ottawa. There I got into another lady’s car and after a long time we stopped at a place called Graham Clinic, Chrystal told me. That’s her name, this lady who took me there. I think I’m a long way from where I started.

Oh, I know I have a pink nose. The rescue lady said it was because I don’t have much pigmentation. I guess that my nose will always be like that. I’m all white. And I don’t have dew claws on my hind legs because the vet took them off when I was little. I don’t know why. The rescue lady was not happy with that news. “

Well, that’s pretty well the way it happened.
I was told that a 5-year old intact male Pyr needed to be saved from the gas chamber!
I actually picked up a confident and pretty little girl of about 14 months, well tempered and obedience trained, except for leash pulling when she wants to check something out like the paper blowing about in the wind. That can be easily corrected. She usually walks well on a leash.

The first thing she did when she sat in the car was to smell my breath… typically Pyr. May be a future Service dog?

Little rescue Millie can make you very happy. She loves everyone. She is a very confident, well-mannered girl who will make a family very happy.

She can make your family happy if she chooses you!

Allo là! C’est moi, Millie!

« Je ne suis pas certaine de ce qui c’est passé. On m’a amené à une fourrière municipale ou j’ai été avec d’autres chiens pendant quelques jours. Il son dit que je devais être euthanasiée maïs je ne sais pas ce que cela veut dire.
Ensuite une gentille dame de chez ‘Paws for Life’ a payé des frais quelconques. Elle a dit que j’allais chez quelqu’un appelé “rescue”.Je suis allée en auto jusqu’un gros stationnement ou j’ai pu attrapé un morceau de papier ballotant au vent. La dame que j’ai rencontré là m’a donné un gros câlin et m’a dit que j’étais en sécurité maintenant. Elle a commencé à me parlé et de m’appeler Millie. J’aime ça. J’aime me promener en auto aussi.

Elle voulait prendre des photos et je voulais attraper le papier qui volait au vent. Ensuite, j’ai sauté dans son auto et nous avons roulé jusqu’à sa ferme ou J’ai vu onze autres gros chiens blancs comme moi. En fait, ils étaient tous plus gros que moi.

Le lendemain, elle m’a amené en auto, encore une fois, quelque part qu’elle nommait Ottawa. J’ai changé de voiture encore une fois et après un long trajet, nous avons arrêté quelque part qui s’appelle ‘Graham Clinic,’ Chrystal m’a dit. C’est son nom, la dame qui m’y a amené. Je pense que je suis bien lion d’où j’était hier!

Oh, je sais que j’ai le nez rose! La dame “rescue” a dit que c’est parce que je n’ai pas beaucoup de pigmentation. Je pense que mon nez sera toujours comme ça. Je suis toute blanche … et je n‘ai pas d’ergots sur mes pattes arrières parce que le vétérinaire les a enlevés quand j’étais toute petite. Je ne sais pas pourquoi. La dame « rescue » n’était pas très heureuse de voir ça…. Et je pèse 70 livres! »

Voila! C’est pas mal comme ça que ça c’est passé.
On m’a dit que je devais prendre un Pyrénéen intact de 5 ans pour le sauver d’être gazé. En fait, j’ai pris une belle petite Pyrénéenne de 14 mois à peu près, de bon tempérament, obéissante, bien entrainée sauf parfois quand elle tire sur al laisse pour attraper un papier virevoltant au vent. Ça, c’est facilement corrigé. En général, elle marche bien en laisse. Elle est toute jeune encore

La première chose qu’elle a fait, assise dans mon auto, c’était de sentir mon haleine….typiquement Pyrénéen! Un futur chien de service, peut-être?

Millie aime tout le monde. Elle est une petite chienne confiante et bien élevée qui rendra très heureuse une famille.

Cette petite chienne rescue Millie peut rendre heureuse votre famille si elle vous choisit!

I wish I could take her in forever, but I am already full up with my current pack members.

I hope, with all my heart, that she finds a wonderful and happy forever home...and very soon, dear Millie.
