I didn't know she had Lupus!!

Okay not Barbara Bush, the dog!!  Yes, dogs can have Lupus.  Millie the dog belonged to former President Bush and first lady Barbara.  Millie lived with Lupus for many years.  She even had puppies with no difficulties.  Millie, with some help ;-), wrote a book about living with Lupus.  How cute!!  It was very inspiring for many people.  This book brought Lupus to the public eye.  Go Millie!!  What a Lupus advocate.  Millie died from pneumonia in 1997 at the age of 12, but she will never be forgotten.  It is amazing who (what) can get Lupus!!  We are definitely not alone!!
