I’d like to introduce you to our newest shopgirl, Miss Millie. Millie came visiting a week ago with two of her sisters and decided she’d like to stay with me. Oh my! She is such a little love and her fan club is growing rapidly! Millie is a nearly 12 week old, Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Many of you are familiar with another Cardigan, Miss Clover Meadow, who appears frequently on Alicia Paulson’s “Posie Gets Cozy” blog.
As I type this Miss Millie is out in our little shop garden nipping the blossoms off the calendula plants. She likes to pick a blossom and then curl up under the table and very carefully pull out each yellow petal. Silly thing, she makes me smile. We lost one of our Pembroke corgis, in May, our dear sweet old Rosie. I miss her so…….and, I thought I’d want another Pembroke, but Millie convinced me otherwise. She’s sweet, gentle, quite smart (of course) and it is rather charming to have a wagging tail about! As my friend Steph said, “Millie is good for your soul.” She’s right. :)
Most days, if I’m on deck here in the shop, Millie will be, too. Stop by and say “Hi!” She’ll be very happy to greet you!
(Over at Nancy’s blog “My Crafty Little Page” there is a wonderful pet show going on! I found the show through Gina at Feather Your Nest. You can see Gina’s sweet Sophie here. )
She’s precious and I have to agree the day just is much better with a puppy in the shop!
oh Dori, what a darling girl she is. She would make me smile too. Love her. I have loved Corgi’s since the first Tasha Tudor Book I read.:)

That is the sweetest face! I know she will soon have a huge fan base :)
Thank you, ladies! :) Millie just makes me smile. Even when I scold her, I have the hardest time keeping the smile off my face. She puts her head down between her paws and stares at me, and the look she gives me makes it so difficult to be stern! She’s trying ever so hard to be good!
