THE AMAZING antics of wonder dog Millie — a Pembrokeshire corgi — are helping her owners raise money in support of the charity Sense, which has a base on Hucknall High Street.

Having acquired Millie from a litter of pups six-and-a-half years ago, devoted owners Grenville and Elaine Morley, of Watnall, have put her through a demanding training-regime to hone her obedience and performance skills.

Now Millie is being put through her paces as an ‘entertainer’, with a view to her staging a series of shows that will earn funds for Sense, which supports those who are deaf and blind.

After hours of Grenville’s patience and encouragement, Millie has learned a wide variety of eyecatching talents that are sure to wow audiences.

Grenville, a familiar figure in Watnall where he ran his own motor mechanic’s business for many years, outlined his plans for Millie’s charity performances.

He said: “It’s early days yet but the intentions are that we get a few bookings at care homes, residential housing complexes, schools and groups locally, at which Millie’s talents will be revealed in a 40-minute performance.

“Her act will include obedience tests, dancing to music, a fake drugs-search, ability challenges and retrieving lost keys.

“This is a new initiative and one that will bring pleasure to people while helping out a good cause.”
