When the 2009 Milly Litter happened, and with that Mitzi had Milly, so she didn't have the need to grieve for her other Puppies, when they left. This was because she had Milly still with her and this meant that she never lost the entire Litter, as she had managed to KEEP one of her babies forever with Milly !! The connection between these two is an amazing spectacle to be around, and only a mother would be able to sleep through that diamond drilling SNORING that Miss Milly is capable to doing.
Mother's Love !!
Mitzi and Milly are very similar in so many ways, they both have a sweetness and a generousness of spirit. But Mitzi show's us through silly little things how her " Puppy Farm " start in life, has made her slightly neurotic and unbalanced. While Milly has been through the most traumatic event, that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. But this little girl even though she has been through so much, she is so much more balanced emotionally than her Mummy and it show's itself in various way's.
An example that explains what I mean about these two, is that Milly will quite willingly be left on her own if her Mummy is elsewhere. But her Mother Mitzi will totally go into a complete emotional wreck, if Milly is out of sight for more than a minute !! But it's more than that Milly will actually calm her own mother down when she ever get's over anxious or hysterical !!! In a true Cesar Millan way this bonker's Darth Vader Puglet will, actually nip her own hysterical mother, and snaps her back into the real world !!
This goes to show that even when Milly acts the fool her balanced home upbringing, has made her into a much more stable dog. While her mother who for appearance sake is the much calmer of the pair to the untrained eye ?? But in real state of thing's she has way more ISSUE'S than her Daughter who looks to all to be a complete FOOL !!! She is actually the more " Normal " balanced one of this funny partnership, that is this Mother and Daughter duo.

But then she did have 12 puppies inside her, that were just waiting to arrive with us asap. We sadly lost 2 puppies during the Birth which is always a loss, but for a Pugalier I think that 10 puppies is enough for a mummy to raise ?? For Mitzi the loss of these 2 puppies was keenly felt !
This Picture was taken about 5 minute's after her hunting session ! and Please Check Out the 2 Strange looking Puglet's that Mitzi adopted as her own !!!
Milly and the 2010 litter Babysitting !!
Mitzi and her 10 babies were in the bed in front of the fire in our front room, just relaxing and keeping toastie !! Milly had not really been allowed to get involved with this litter so far, as I had wanted Mitzi to have a peaceful space to have her puppies and just bond. So she was just resting and enjoying some piece and quiet after the whole Birthing experience, and then Milly arrived ..............
This was Leo and Sibling's who now lives in New York City !!!
This was the first time that Mitzi had seen Milly since she had given birth and we didn't know what to expect ?? A normal mother is very protective and wouldn't take kindly to a 1 year old nutter, getting involved with her puppies be her a Daughter or not ! Milly walked up to the bed and poked her head in to see what was making such funny noises ?? Mitzi moved her body around her puppies so her back was shielding her puppies !! Milly moved around the side to continue to nose .......
With this a grumble came out of Mitzi, well this didn't worry Milly in one lil bit !! With us watching on just in case something bad happened, I let them continue with the game they were playing. Well I wish I had filmed this as it was worthy of an Oscar !! Milly moved to the side of the bed and just sat there and Mitzi continued to mutter under her breath. Milly did not bat an eyelid .......... she moved closer to the bed, not once looking at her mother ??
Mitzi was still grumbling and Milly moved one back leg into the bed, with her head turned away from her mother !!! Mitzi still moaning and then Milly moved there sideways. and moved her front leg into the bed ! Now Milly is normally a jump right in and I don't care who I land on sort of Girl, so the slowness just added to our amazement and humour.
Milly moved her 3rd leg in and then her whole body and if you can imagine a Great Dane squeezing itself into a match box then you have got a good idea of how Tiny Milly Made Herself !! The whole time she had not once looked at her mother and her mother had not once stopped Growling !! But the sight of Milly with her head turned away and herself into the Tiny Space in this bed, and she had not once trod or moved a puppy once !!!
Mitzi looked over at her daughter who was obviously Sooooooo STUPID !! as she should have listened to her Mother and Just Stayed Away from her new and improved Babies !! But obviously the bang on her head had affected her, that even when she growled at her daughter she didn't cotton on !!!
Mitzi Glared at her Daughter ......... Huffed and promptly fell asleep !! We looked over at Milly who is still in this lil Tiny space and as we look at her ............ she almost Smiles and wiggles her lil tail and then just like her Mother, she then also fell asleep !!
It was not only one of the funniest thing's I have ever seen, but more than that It Show's Us the TOTAL TRUST that these two share, and it was an unbelievable scene, and one that my family or I will never forget or ever witness again.
Milly with her younger Brother's and Sister's !!!
It just go to prove that A Mother's Love is Always Un~Dying and it show's us how the Bond of Motherhood will forsake all the ........
NORMAL ANIMAL BOUNDARIES that are normally held in place. Such as the fact that a Mother will never allow, another dog into their protected Den when they have a litter of New Born Puppies.
But Milly has this total innocence and has this ability that even when other Dog;s who normally HATE any other Dog's will actually Like Milly !! She is probably the sweetest Dog I have ever known with this Childlike attitude and the most wonderful happiness and endearing personality. Which makes her impossible to be angry with or fail to fall in love with .......... I think it's this spirit that allowed her Mother to believe that Milly would never Harm her new puppies in any sort of way !!
