“AJER!”   2 comments

Millie has loved Major Tom, our Yorkie Bichon mix, since the first day she noticed him. She used to just be content to watch him, but now she is only content when sitting right next to him, petting him, or sharing his chew toys. Best buds, I tell ya! Millie also has started calling him by name. Well, to be more accurate, she has started yelling his name. Like Millie, Major Tom has a lot of nicknames: Maj, Maj-maj, Major-maj, Tom, Maj-tom, Tom-tom, Major T, Ground-Control-to-Major-Tom… yeah, we like nicknames at our house. Anyway, pretty much the only time I use Major’s full name is when I am yelling at him, which is daily, at least. Major likes to look out the window and bark at any passerby, which prompts me yelling “MAJOR!!” The other day, Millie echoed right after me “AJER!” IT WAS SO CUTE. A day or two after this happened, things got even cuter when Millie yelled “AJER!” when Major Tom barked without anyone else yelling first. ADORABLE, right?? Is anyone else understanding the level of cuteness I am describing??!!

Major Tom gets bad rap (mainly from me). He has poor manners, likes to “punishment pee” in the kitchen if we do something he doesn’t like, and, frankly, he smells like a dog. But, I must admit, the little guy is pretty adorable. He has been great with Millie. She is not very gentle with him- her pets are more like slaps and she likes to pull his beard hair, but he has only ever been sweet with her. He has never snapped at her, but rather he shares with her and is very patient. What more can I ask for from the family dog? Major turns 4 years old on July 5th, and I want to wish a very happy birthday to my sweet, stinky dog-son. Nate, Millie and I love you very much!
