Meet The "Terror Her" aka Millie the Border Terrier

After nearly a year of having a only two dogs, we decided to add another one to the pack.  And when I say "we" I really mean me.  The Husband agreed, but did not encourage.

I decided to add a new breed to the pack (variety is the spice of life, right?), and after much careful consideration landed on the Border Terrier.  I like that Border Terriers are a sane and healthy breed.  They're trainable (for terriers), loving, and portable.  They're also built for agility.

After deciding on a breed, I went on a search for a good breeder.  I found one in Harriet Hayden of Sunkist Border Terriers.  Harriet had an agility prospect that she was considering placing -- a young female who is well built, bold, energetic, has a great attitude, and even likes cats!  Plans were made, and Millie joined our pack in July, at 10 months of age.  Millie's official name is Sunkist Spot of Bother.  That should have been a clue.  Her new nick name (given to her by The Husband) is the Terror Her.

Millie has now snuggled her way into our home, and I have great hopes for her future as an agility dog.

So I guess it's time to meet Milie:

Yes, the Terror Her's head fits through stair rails.  
And such a cute face!


Millie LOVES to play, and retrieves much better than the Cardi boys.


Millie is always on the go, and on the lookout for vermin.


…or trying to dig out vermin.


…or running after vermin and/or engaging Rip in play.


Millie is a bed dog, too.  She came this way, and resistance was futile.

Life with a Border Terrier is certainly different than life with a Cardigan.
