The list of things that Mila loves is about as long as my arm - she is very easy to please. She likes runs, pats, sleep, frozen peanut butter, the beach (and water generally), the big green couch, ice blocks, bush walks, and rides in the car to name just a few of her most favourites.
But if there is one thing that Mila rates more than anything else in the world, it is her collection of soft squeaky toys. She loves them to pieces. Literally.
|This picture is a bit blurry due to the ferocity with which Mila was attacking her pig. Luckily, the pig survived the onslaught and, having lost only a little bit of its interior, is still a favourite today.|
|Unfortunately, this toy was less fortunate.|
|This is Trevor the Mallard. Mila is very protective of her friend Trev and will often sleep with him tucked under her chin. Trevor is yet to lose any stuffing and remarkably, after more than a month, still quacks!|
|Mila's Christmas skunk lasted us about 3 weeks before it was completely destroyed...|
|...and her latest victim was a blue dog who was just 3 days old when he suffered the same fate. This photo was taken late one night when Mila discovered how to get directly to the source of all that squeaking.|
