New Panties for Our Trip!

This is sort of an embarassing post… but when we travel in our AIRSTREAM, we have to wear little “panties” when we are inside.  The AIRSTREAM is WAY TOO SMALL to put down pee pads and Mummy said even if we could find a spot, the smell would permeate everything inside and make life unbearable.  We have a covered x-pen outside where we do most of our “business” but ya know, with 4 little yorkies, there are ALWAYS ACCIDENTS.  Our little panties have been the best way to control these things.  Our friends have asked how we manage things, and the panties are how we do it.  Inside each panty Mummy places a little Depends/Poise panty liner for absorbancy.  Of course when an accident occurs, the panty also gets wet but the Depends/Poise soaks up most of it.  The wet panties are collected and hand-washed in gentle detergent, in a small washbasin that Mummy brings along for this task.  She hangs the freshly laundered panties on a string in the shower to dry.  We carry about 6 pairs of panties with us on a trip so we are always circulating them… but it cuts down on paper waste from disposable doggie diapers and helps a little towards “saving the planet.”  Mummy is in the process of making a NEW PAIR of panties for our upcoming trip in a few weeks.  If you are interested in making your own doggie panties, there are patterns for this type thing in the BIG PATTERN BOOKS at all fabric and crafts stores.  They will be under the ACCESSORIES and CRAFTS section of the book.  Mummy and a friend of hers made up their own pattern for OUR panties, but all of the patterns are pretty much the same.  It is easy to make your own if you are interested in giving it a try.  These have been a real lifesaver for us on our camping trips when we are inside the trailer.

    How lovely of Mommy to do that for you. What shampoo does Mommy use to bath you with. I have tried so many? Love you all very much ❤️

      There are only TWO KINDS of shampoo that Mummy will use on us and we carry both brands in our online BOUTIQUE under ACCESSORIES. One is Blueberry Facial and one is a deep spa-like shampoo and conditioner combined bath called Exfoliating Butterwash and is sold in two scented varities. We love both of them but they meet the high standards that Mummy requires for us. She is sooooo picky and just won’t sell anything in our BOUTIQUE that we won’t use ourselves. 😘😘

    Dear Millie and Company
    We wear diapers too. We were embarrassed at first but they are pretty ones so now we love them. We love you all very much. Our Mummy’s friend Susan Emery Tiuolomiau and Mummy met you about 2 years ago for coffee in Arcata Ca. It was a highlight of our life. Hugs and kisses

    When I was fostering doggies we sewed girly diapers for the girls and belly bands for the boys…. then when they were adopted they got a few until the doggie could get used to their new furever home! Now I sew some that I’ve donated to charities for fundraisers in auctions they have… and now I’ve had to make some for Tootsie since Bella came to stay she’s been peeing inappropriately….. tsk tsk tsk…. I call them “fancy pants” LOL

    They really are a helpful item to have even if you visiting friends you don’t have to be embarrassed by a small accident.

      When I was staying in Paris last year in several different apartments, I always wore my pretty panties when I was inside. I never had an accident but Mummy didn’t want to take a chance that I would ruin any of the antique carpets or flooring… afterall, I was representing all doggies from AMERICA!!! Two of the places where we stayed did not even accept doggies and Mummy convinced them that I was VERY WELL BEHAVED so I needed to be on my best behavior. After our stay, they both ended up telling her how happy they were with their decision to let me stay. When we stay in hotels, we always use panties as well… it is just an added safety measure and shows respect for the place you are staying.

    Hi Millie!
    What does Mummy use to keep your faces so pretty with no tear stains? I have heard you say she uses drops in your eyes each day- is that what keeps the tear from staining? My little Charlsie Rae (Morkie) gets the stains in her sweet little face.
    Miss you on FB, but enjoying your blog!

      Ms Anne, we use REFRESH eye drops every day. The kind in the individual vials so each of us gets a fresh vial each day. Also, Mummy NEVER CUTS THE HAIR BETWEEN OUR EYES like some groomers love to do!!! When these hairs are cut short and they start to grow out, the little short strands will stick your pup in the eye and cause watering, which causes irritation, which leads to staining!!! We also only drink filtered water.

    That’s awesome! I will need to try the depends. I can find anything small to put inside my mollie’s. Everything has been too big both baby and doggie diapers

    I think that’s a great idea, Millie. You mommy sure knows how to make life easier while traveling. I can’t wait to hear about your adventures. We are going camping in Maine in September, but first we must go on our yearly family vacation in July to the Outer Banks, North Carolina. My mommy just loves summertime.

      We tried and tried to fit THE OUTER BANKS into this trip but it just wasn’t possible. We are going to plan another trip to back there one day!

    Plus your little panties are so stylish, nobody would even know what their purpose is. My beloved Zoe had to wear panties towards the end of her life and I made sure she looked adorable like you guys are.
