The idea for
Millie's Million was conceived
in an animal hospital waiting room.
Millie was diagnosed with cancer, it was a shock to me.
I didn't even know dogs got cancer! It became overwhelming wading
through all the medical information being thrown at me when all
I was trying to do was hold onto my emotions.
Talking to people in the animal
hospital waiting room became my saving grace. They
knew exactly the extent of my emotions and we all tried to help
each other figure out the best medical path for our pets.
In honor of Millie,
Millie's Million was created to become an Internet Animal Hospital
Waiting Room if you will. A place where pet owners can receive
information and support.
The 'Million' in Millie's Million stands for a million words of
comfort & hugs we're willing to give out.
