Millie (AKA: "The Weather Dog") is a Pembroke Welsh Corgi that was born in Oklahoma.
Ross Janssen's cousin convinced him that having a Corgi would be the best idea. After a little hesitation, he decided to make the journey to Oklahoma and pick up the last female in the group. Ross decided on the name Millie because his cousin had a dog many years ago (an Airedale) named Millie, and he liked the name.
Millie’s good behavior and passion for adventure is the reason why she goes with Ross almost everywhere. She’s been to the top of a mountain outside of Boulder, CO, been on a number of storm chasing adventures in western Kansas, and has even carried the rings down the aisle at a wedding. Millie travels to school talks with Ross and usually entertains the kids, while he's trying to teach them about weather.
You will commonly see Millie on KWCH in the evenings and usually on weekends hanging out in the Weather Center. She is definitely a big dog trapped inside of a small dog’s body.
