Pet of the day: Milan, my reason for getting out of bed
Be Stuff's pet of the dayShare your stories, photos and videos.
This is the light of my life, Milan.
He is a rescue dog from Wellington SPCA.
He can be a little stand-offish - but that's the way chiahuahuas roll.
He tolerates being put in an outfit, and looks great dressed as Santa.
We go everywhere together.
He enjoys going to the small dog group at Petone where he frequently catches up with his friends.
He always enjoys going to a Paws in the Park event.
I cannot imagine him not being in my life. He arrived at a time when my health had declined and I'd been made redundant, so he was my reason to get out of bed every morning.
