Millie! A Love Story by Louis and Roseanne Lavalle is a warm and inspiring tale of unconditional love, commitment, and sacrifice where dog lovers will get to know Millie, one Yorkshire Terrier, and her parents. Yorkshire Terriers are lap dogs and they prefer constant companionship as much as possible by being with their humans; in the same room, in the same car, and even the same bed. The extraordinary love story between the authors and Millie began in a pet store in Lexington Avenue in March 2005. The book chronicles the journey of Millie since the time she joined the family, filled their lives with joy and happiness, and changed their lives forever. This beautiful story of pure love captures how the authors grew with her and found unceasing happiness being with her.
Louis and Roseanne Lavalle are vocal when it comes to talking about Millie and the time she spent with them and have shared all the minute details, both amusing and poignant, with readers, bringing them closer to Millie. The book is all things love beginning from the time Millie joined them to the times when she had control over everything they did. The chapters on Millie's cataract surgery and two leg surgeries are heartwarming and are also a reminder about how love and affection form an important part of healing when it comes to taking care of animals. Millie! A Love Story is not only for dog and animal lovers but for everyone who connects with unconditional love and affection.
