I never wanted a dog. I wanted an angel in my life. And then Millie came into our lives bringing us all so much love and joy. At first, I decided to be thoroughly strict and make do with old socks with knots in for her as toys. She was not overly impressed with this, partly I'm sure because like me she loves pink. She's now got a very elegant collection of toys and accessories.Millie loves this pink pig, which came with a sweet sheep and a laughing cow. She also loves both Mr Banana and Mr Pineapple, who in her early puppy months were her partners in crime. Whenever she did something naughty they always seemed to be around. She also has some wonderful rainbow coloured frisbees, balls and dumbells. Her favourite ball though is a a soft orange and white one which we throw endlessly round the house for her. Her new favourite is a multi-coloured rope with tassels at the end.
Of course, she also has designer toys too. These have sadly not got the staying power of the others, but are so adorable that they are a pleasure to have around. As an ambassador member of the Pink Shoe Club I couldn't resist getting her a pink shoe toy. Nor a Fortnum & Mason tea caddy (well, it is such a lovely shop and Nick loves their Assamese tea). And in homage to our photo on this web site the tea cup for Millie was irrestible. Like so many china cups too, the handle came off quickly, but somehow it added to its charm.
