I’m nearly two months overdue with a post on Millie’s second adoptiversary, but I wanted to make sure it still happened because the little munchkin deserves her own blog post every once in awhile! She’s a regular over on Instagram but if you’re unfamiliar, we got Millie–our toy cockapoo–two years ago. J and I have always talked about getting a dog (as a joke at first, then more seriously as time went on!) and we adopted Mille a year after we moved in together.
Both of us had dogs growing up (he had three, I had one) but both of us were really young when our families got them. We were very uninvolved in the training and caretaking process so while we were used to doing the minimum, we definitely started from scratch in the “how to raise a puppy” department. While Millie has us wrapped around her paw and can be pretty manipulative, she’s so smart and much better behaved than we could have imagined. We’re still trying to get her to break 10lbs but her big dog personality and loud voice do what they can to make up for it :)
