Welcome to Milo's page.  Contrary to everything they sayMilo in the garden Displays a larger version of this image in a new browser window on this website, I am actually in charge at Government House!

 

I came here at just nine weeks old but soon made it my home and had all the people at Government House running around after me. It's great having so many different people coming to visit us at the house.  I really like meeting everyone and especially chewing the Bailiff's robes!

I have made lots of new friends here and have even had them around for tea and a big run around and play in the garden.  Gary, the head gardener, wasn't very happy at the idea but we all behaved very well and stayed clear of all the trees planted by members of the Royal family!

I love Guernsey and going for long walks on the beautiful beaches and on the common.  Sorry to everyone I have jumped all over but I am just very friendly and can't really help myself - maybe I'll be better when I get older!

 

 

 

My Birthday

Milo aged 1!

 

In March was my first birthday.  My owners tried to make me pose for some formal photographs.  I pretended to do as I was told especially as they bribed me with lots of treats.

But as soon as their backs were turned I managed to get hold of one of my new presents and then run riot around the ballroom.  It was great fun catching my fish on the big rug but the wooden floor was very slippery! Still I think I managed to get away without damaging anything too important!!

Then I had another party in the garden with my friends. This time the grown up humans all stood around sipping wine but we had a much better time chasing each other and begging treats.  We made big friends with one little girl who just kept on feeding us lots of biscuits.  She can come again!

 

 

 

Meeting GP Ted and going for  Wildlife Walk

In September I was taken for a very special walk with lots of children from the Island.  We were walking to raise money to rescue two lion cubs in Ethiopia Rea and Girma.  I went with a very special new friend - GP Ted.  I had a fantastic time running up and down the cliffs pretending to be a lion although I still have to work a bit on my roar!

 

Milo & GP Ted

 

 

 

GP Ted had come to see me at Government House a few weeks before so that we could discuss what we should do on the walk and to show me his brand new sweater.   I gave him one of my extra special 'ear licks' which I save just for my best friends.  I'm not sure he liked it very much, I think he's a little bit ticklish!
