Millie's Version of TV

One of Millie's favourite spots inside was on her bed in front of the living room window, overlooking the front field. This was her version of  TV: turkey, squirrels, rabbits, deer, trains, cars,  hawks & eagles, people coming up the drive and the occasional bear. One day she was barking & I followed her line of sight and waaaaay off in the distance was a faint white line of an airplane trail going across the sky.

"Whatcha lookin' at, Mil?" I'd say.

Perhaps ice on the river.
Neighbor Dave on his tractor was a familiar sight.

On this particular day, Millie was barking at something. I looked out the window to follow her line of sight & realized she was watching debris floating down the flooded river. That's how I found out it was flooded! Every time a tree or something BIG would go down, she'd woof!

See the wild turkey?

Turkeys & their chicks this summer.

And deer . . .

Bonus!  All at the same time!

2 beds to boost her up so she could see better.

More turkeys.

I loved looking at the expression on her face; brow furrowed, so intent.

She did sometimes face the other way . . .
Millie was good at finding the one slippery spot without carpet & plopping down & getting stuck. [I have an early post of duct taping carpet to floors so she wouldn't get stuck.] I finally wedged these 2 beds together so there was no room for her to slip off. This doubled as a great bed for the 2 youngest nieces when they came for a visit.
And when the entertainment was over, she'd lie down and rest . . .

or take a snooze . . . 

Zzzzzz . . . .
