Going for walks, hiking, attention, petting.
Being ignored, bath time.
Anything that's plush and squeaks.
Natural Balance rolls, cheese, chicken. She's not picky.
A special spot in our rural area where she can be off leash and hike through cliffs and valleys.
Being my service dog she knows a lot of tasks. Our communication is based more on the everyday things rather than specific commands. I swear she can read my mind.
Millie is absolutely wonderful. No words can describe how amazing, devoted, sweet, and loving she is. She's my heart dog, my soulmate in doggy form, and my best friend.
She is perfectly content lounging with me in bed and hiking for hours and hours on end.
She is extremely obedient and smart and learns things in a breeze.
I can trust her in any situation.
I call Millie my Lassie dog. She's just like that- she knows what I want before I do, she has literally saved my life, I can trust her with anything, and she helps me from day to day with everything a dog is capable of doing.
Millie is training as my service dog. Training is going great and we're taking leaps and bounds. I don't know what I would do without her.

Support Needed Now to Restore ADA Rights
July 23, 2007--This Thursday, July 26, on the 17th anniversary of enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) and Congressman James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) will introduce the ADA Restoration Act of 2007.
Court decisions have seriously eroded the rights of people with disabilities under the ADA, creating a Catch-22 that allows employers to say a person is “too disabled” to do the job but “not disabled enough” to be protected by the law.
People with conditions like mental illness, epilepsy, diabetes, HIV, cancer and hearing loss who manage their disabilities with medication, prosthetics, hearing aids, etc. – or “mitigating measures” – are viewed as “too functional” to have a disability and are denied the ADA’s protection from employment discrimination.
People who are turned down for a job or fired because an employer mistakenly believes they cannot perform the job – or because the employer does not want “people like that” in the workplace – are also denied the ADA’s protection from employment discrimination.
This Is Wrong!
Congress should correct this to ensure that the courts will interpret the ADA fairly, and as Congress intended.
Many voices are needed now to help Congressmen Hoyer and Sensenbrenner gather as many original co-sponsors as possible to show strength and support for this effort.
Please Act Now!
Call your Representative immediately at 202-224-3121 and ask him or her to become an original co-sponsor of the ADA Restoration Act of 2007. (You can also get a direct phone number via congress.org.)
Ask your Representative (or the staff member you speak to) to contact Representative Hoyer’s (ext. 5-3130) or Sensenbrenner’s (ext. 5-5101) office today to sign on as an original co-sponsor.
Forward this Action Alert to your network to get as many people as possible people to call their House member immediately with the same message.
What if you miss Thursday’s deadline? Not to worry! Co-sponsors will still be needed after July 27th, so do call your Representative’s office.
See some talking points on the ADA Restoration Act and, below, a sample telephone message for seeking original cosponsors:
“ Hi. My name is_______ and I live in ________. I would like Representative______ to be an original cosponsor of the ADA Restoration Act of 2007. A Dear Colleague letter was just sent to you on Friday, July 20 from Representatives Hoyer and Sensenbrenner to let you know that they will be introducing the ADA Restoration Act this Thursday, July 26, the 17th anniversary of the original enactment of the ADA.
“ People with disabilities are still too often treated unfairly in the workplace. When they go to court with a claim of discrimination, they are treated unfairly again, often by a court that says they do not even have disability and are not eligible for coverage under the Americans with Disabilities Act – even when they have been fired or refused employment because of their disability! The ADA needs to cover the people the U.S. Congress originally intended it to cover when it was passed in 1990, people with mental illnesses, epilepsy, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, intellectual and developmental disabilities or cancer. But that is not what is happening now.
“ Please solve this problem by becoming an original cosponsor of the ADA Restoration Act of 2007.”
