On Nantucket!

We met the neatest people on the ferry! We were hardly even out of our car when these nice people stopped us and told us that this coming weekend they were picking up a 3 month old Airedale puppy and that his name is Jake. He's coming from MY breeder so it was pretty neat to hear all the stories. It passed our 2 hour trip very nicely. Mitch did awesome on the ferry stairs going up. Going down he spazzed with dad and dad gave in and carried him down but then it was mom's turn to take him down and she made him do the top step and everything was fine after that. And now at the house Mitch is up and down the stairs all the time. This is his reward at the top of the stairs!His very own bed - or so he thinks! And it's all dressed out up there in pink!

We've been to town a few times already and we found out that the dogs all congregate in front of the coffee shop with their families. Yesterday we met quite a few of them. Mitch is making sure this one is a boy like he is!

We've had ice cream once and mom and dad promised that tonight is another ice cream night so we're psyched about that!

We have a 2 mile walkie down to Surfside beach every single day and then we head back into town so that dad can buy the newspaper to read on the beach. This is the Bartlett truck that comes into town every single day and sells fresh flowers. Seeing this truck is very special to mom and dad! This is Nantucket's Main Street!

We're finding this vacation stuff real relaxing and hope that it never ends! We could get very used to this fat and happy life style!

We apologize that we're not sharing many pictures but our connection is very slow. We'll share lots more pictures when we get home. And we want to thank Blue and Bogie and I think Sitka for tagging us. We'll get to the tags when we get back too, okay?

We miss you all lots! We see lots of doggies that remind us of so many of you!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

Hi M&M! We are happy to hear that you are having a nice vacation and Mitchy is doing so good on the stairs. He looks very comfy on his pink bed. Nantucket sounds like a very dog-friendly place. We look forward to hearing more about your trip and seeing more pictures when you get home.

Oh Maggie, so good to hear you and Mitch are having a great time. I haven't been checking regularly 'cause you said maybe you wouldn't be able to connect, but I love the pictures and am happy to know that Mitch is fine with the stairs. Love his bed! Does he know about pink? Oh well...maybe he's just a really strong type who doesn't care.
