Farm Wife along the Stafford/Reno County Line
She isn't nearly as well-behaved as her namesake, Millie, the KWCH weather dog. But she's a farm dog, not a TV star.
She's been part of the County Line menagerie since June 2, when we brought her home from the Hutchinson Animal Shelter. In 4 months, the cats have learned to tolerate her. Ralph - just like an older sibling - is resigned to the fact that this energetic interloper is here to stay.
I first took her picture in the backyard tub on June 13.
Nearly 4 months later, she is taking up considerably more space. I no longer worry that Millie's short legs can't make the whole 4-mile trek during our morning walk.
