Past it at 12?

We’re trying to practise acceptance in our house at the moment. At least, Annabelle and I are trying to practise it – Pearl doesn’t need to, as things are going pretty well for her right now. She’s finally succeeded in stealing my boyfriend.

Snip Moves On

Ever since Snip and I got together, Pearl has tried to come between us. She’s long since dropped any pretence of indifference, going wild with excitement every time his name is mentioned, luring him into the bushes on walks, and giving him a sneaky kiss when she thinks no one’s looking. They go hunting and racing together, and I can’t keep up with them. Sometimes they have a little go at each other, but I can no longer deny this is just another sign of the attraction between them. The only time I get to be alone with him is when Annabelle puts Pearl on the lead.

Millie and Snip

He’s always kind to me and we still have a spiritual connection, but the passion has gone and I have to face the fact he’s moved on to a younger model. Maybe I could accept it, if Pearl didn’t keep rubbing it in my face that I’m past it.

The final indignity came with the arrival of the 2016 calendar from Greyhound Rescue Wales. Remembering my success as a model in the Pets at Home 2010 calendar, Annabelle submitted a photo of me and Pearl for the GRW calendar – but it hasn’t been included.

Another photo, featuring Pearl and Mollie, has been included – and Pearl won’t shut up about it.Pearl, Pearl, calendar girl

Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s lovely that Mollie has been remembered in this way, but Pearl insists Mollie is just background and the photo has been included because it’s such a great shot of her. She says they didn’t want me in the calendar because I look too old.

What do you think? Have I still got it, or should I accept my modelling days are over?

  6. Awww, Millie, I’m so sorry to hear that sneaky Pearl has managed to lure unfaithful Snip away.
    OF course, you’re not past it!!! You are just now in your prime!!
    That Snip was too silly for you anyway.


  7. Too young for me, maybe – but if he’s too young for me, he’s also too young for Pearl. I’ve told her if he’s been unfaithful to me, he may well end up doing exactly the same thing to her. I’ve already seen him chasing after a pretty black Lurcher of his own age…

    oh Millie, you were fantastic in that calendar shot, and still looking good. Don’t despair, console yourself with the fact that Pearl will be old one day too, and if he is already chasing after that pretty black Lurcher, well it doesn’t bode well does it? I have two Lurchers named Rufus and Buster, you’re welcome to pop over to meet them.
