Wheelie Wednesday - Nantucket Vacation

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
Mom has put me in charge of getting Maggie and Mitch packed for their Nantucket vacation! They leave the day after tomorrow!

The beach umbrella and the chairs are all ready to be packed into the trunk!

I bet you guys are really excited about feeling sand beneath your toes!
It's been a real battle deciding which toys to take! Mom says they can't take them all so we're narrowing it down and it hasn't been easy!
You guys sure have lots of toys!
Maggie and I have been deciding on which collars to bring! Mom says that Mitch can't wear his leather collar just in case he wants to swim so that one will be staying home. She bought him new Boomerang tags to keep him safe!
I think we've made wise collar decisions, don't you, Maggie?I'm really going to miss the family while they're gone but I do have plans to spend lots of time in the garden weeding and pruning and I'll also have lots of time for reading with a nice cup of tea! Does anyone care to join me?
Look what's blooming near the vege garden!
I had my doubts that we'd see sunflowers this year because it's been such a strange year!
Aren't they glorious!
See you in a couple of weeks!

Love, Autumn


  1. It's never easy packing for a trip! We hope you have a REALLY great time! We wish we could go with you! Maybe...just MAYBE our mom will be done with her "project" by the time you get back so we can get back to blogging! Have a good time and stay safe!

  2. Hi Autumn!

    What a good Sister you are helping them to pack.
    While they are away, I'm pop over the 'pond' and join you for tea - can we have icecream too?

    Wheelie wishes & Foxy love

  3. Wheelie,
    Sorry you have to watch the homestead. Will they be staying at the Obama's estate? Oh, wrong island. Well, we hope that M&M don't stuff themselves with too much Salt Water Taffy. We hope that they have fun and be safe.

  11. Autumn - you are not going to the beach?????? How can you can go exploring all the wonderful gardens if you are not there? And what about the new plants you might see that would look right in your garden. I am sure if you have a word with the garden gnomes they would keep your garden safe. We were looking forward to seeing the adventures of "Autumn goes to Nantuckette"

  12. Hi Autumn.
    What, not taking you on Holiday. Shame on them, never mind. maybe you can use thats time to redesign the garden. have a peaceful time.

  13. Wow - Yes, those sunflowers are pawsome!

    I know you will miss M&M, Autumn, but you'll also enjoy your peace and quiet too!

  14. There are certainly some hard decisions to make - toys and collars!! I feel your pain!! My mom & dad just bought a wheelie house (wait till you see it in our post next week!!), so I'll get to go on trips now!! I'll take any advice you guys can give me on packing!

  15. You are going to have the best time. I can't decide which toys either.. but MV has lots of dog stores to buy more .. right?

    Have a super time!

  16. Packing for a trip is always exhausting. Mom says to pack what you think you need and then leave 1/2 of it at home.

    We're glad you got the Boomerang tags. Piper's looks so stylish and we wonder when we girls are going to get one.

    Have a great trip and if you get a minute, stop by our bloggie - we left an award for you.

  34. Autumn, we're so jealous of those sunflowers! Our summer has been so cool and wet that all the sunflowers we planted have only grown about 3ft and not flowered!!

    Tell M&M to have a brillant holiday - our gang so wish they were back on Cape Cod and not here in the rain!!

    Take care

  35. I hope your vacation is perfect. We are hoping to make a run to the Cape, so don't be alarmed if you hear us barking at you from the mainland! :)

  36. You sure did have some big decisions to make. Hope you have a great time. We'll miss your paw prints.
