This is Milo. An adorable 2-year-old Nova Scotia duck tolling retriever is a gentle giant. Nova Scotia duck tolling retrievers are pretty big dogs: their size ranges from 18 – 21 inches for males and 17 – 20 inches for females, and they weigh from 35 – 50 pounds. They need a lot of exercise, like hiking or hunting, and they love to swim.
Milo’s owner, Jennifer Bennett, posted a video of him with a butterfly wreath in a Twitter group called We Rate Dogs and it got a bunch of love and about 2.2 million views, 50k shares, and 230k likes.
Milo’s owner said: “I had a dog before Milo named Boden who passed away and Milo is his nephew. Milo was 10 weeks old when he joined our family. He is very self-confident, loves nature, hiking, and cooking. We also raise monarchs, so they are always in the garden, and Milo’s very used to having them around.”
Milo’s family also keeps chickens in their backyard, so Milo has other friends he can play with too.
Also, Milo has his own cooking channel on YouTube, where he makes delicious treats that are suitable for dogs to eat. His owner said: “He is a professional chef with his own cooking show called ‘Drooling For Treats.’ His next episode is going to feature his butterfly friends where he makes pumpkin dog cookies cut into butterfly shapes. My favorite thing about Milo is how loving and caring he is. He always makes sure everyone is doing well. Even when you feed him a meal, he will come over to you in the middle and give you a kiss as a thank you. He’s done that since he was a tiny puppy. He was a born butterfly king.”
The owner shared some of Milo’s favorite hobbies: “Milo loves to cook his own treats. His favorite ingredients are peanut butter and carrots. He also loves to hike and play at the beach. Any place he can run around and have fun.” And explained why they raise monarch butterflies: “We raise monarch butterflies to help grow their population. There are a lot of predators that can kill the caterpillars, so we try to help them through their stages and release them when they are butterflies. Milo loves it! We have so many butterflies in the garden.”
Here’s an adorable video with Milo showing off his flower and butterfly wraith:
