faithful canine companion

Millie is our beloved yellow lab. She's such a good dog. She is so patient and good with the kids and no longer eats our walls and furniture. She's perfect. She has many funny traits. If she is hungry and we are late in providing her supper she will pick up her metal bowl and throw it down on the tile, repeatedly, until we go feed her. I think this shows her innate intelligence, and our slowness in being properly trained to fetch her food:)
The funniest thing she does is in her relationship with J. J loves to run (I know that's crazy). If she ever comes into a room carrying her running shoes Millie goes nuts. She runs up to her and runs around in circles and looks for her leash. It is sooo funny. If J happens to not be going running but is just randomly wearing tennis shoes for another event and she puts them on and leaves without Millie poor Millie has a heart attack. She runs to the window and paces and whines and keeps it up for a long time.

I love lab's (not sure of the correct punctuation ; )
I had a friend whose dog used to get upset whenever she put on lipstick because the dog knew she was leaving the house.

What a sweetie! It seems like your family has always had a good lab!
