This is How We Pack!

June 8, 2019

.

Mummy is often asked how she goes about packing the four of us yorkies up for a long trip such as the TWO-MONTH-LONG summer excursion we are embarking on in just a few weeks.  Well, this is how it’s done!  First, she lays out all of the harnesses that she thinks we will need for the trip, then she matches them up with the co-ordinating hairbows… because REALLY you MUST HAVE a matching hairbow!!!  We used to carry matching leashes with us but that got to be too much of a problem, and since we mainly travel in our stroller, we really just use a basic black leash for our walks… but we take a few extras for the car as back-ups in case we misplace one or two.  Our clothes are placed in little plastic bins and kept in the overbed storage space of our AIRSTREAM.  Mummy carries only ONE doggie shoulder bag in case one of us needs special attention for some reason… you just never know when that shoulder bag will come in handy.  A few pairs of PJs are included for chilly nights and several blankies are needed for spreading on the bed and sofa.  As far as grooming needs, there are just the normal things: rubber bands, combs, scissors, shampoo and conditioner, breath spray and Mummy’s homemade body spray.  We have a little pop-up baby bathtub that goes into the shower for taking baths and that is stored under the big bed and used for our once-a-week baths that Mummy says are REQUIRED when we travel in order to keep everyone smelling their best and the AIRSTREAM smelling fresh too!  Below I have included our schedule.  If we happen to be coming through your city and you are interested in meeting up with us, we would LOVE to see you.  Please CONTACT US BEFORE we leave on our trip with your cell number and email address, otherwise, we have no way of reaching out to you.  You can reach us privately by emailing us at: millielaruerecipes@gmail.com   We look forward to meeting some of you this summer.  KISS KISS

      I am so happy that you found us here on our very own webpage! Hardly anyone was even SEEING us anymore on FB because we had been basically blocked from circulation unless Mummy was willing to PAY FB to circulate every single post we made. Obviously that was not possible. We don’t make any money on the page and the time and energy it was taking to keep it going for no one to even see it anymore was becoming too stressful. FB was deleting about 100 friends a week from our page in an attempt to “blackmail” us into paying to get our circulation back and after about 8 years and 46,000 friends… we just walked away from the page. Mummy won’t be blackmailed by anyone… not even FACEBOOK!

        Mummy is doing the right thing! No one should be blackmailed.

    So excited to follow you on your big trip! Do you think that your mom would share the recipe for the body spray. Mom says sometimes I smell like a wet sweater so it would be nice to have a spray for in between the baths.

    Your mommy is so organized! We love all your matching outfits. Our mommy is going to get us a stroller for going on walks because of all the people that don’t keep their big dogs locked up! Have a great vacation. We will be watching for your adventures

      Well, I think that the bottom of PA is as close as we are getting to your area. This was our year to do the EASTERN AREA of the USA so I’m not sure we will get back this way anytime soon but maybe! There are sooo many beautiful things to see. Rhode Island had LOTS of pretty areas but it took us too far off the path that we were on so we had to leave it off… that was saf. The trip is already TWO MONTHS LONG and we had to just cut back somewhere.

    Millie ask your Mummy to share the recipe for her homemade body spray for you girls. I think it would be great for my Coco. I look forward to following along on your adventures. You always have such fun in your Yorkie Express Airstream.

    Love all the matching harnesses! I miss you on FB too, but happy you didn’t give in to their demands. I do miss Millie’s Sunday message, which I always shared! I will be following along here on your trip! Hope there are pictures and videos. I still chuckle remembering the field of dreams video!

    So organized! You will have so much fun! And we love “traveling” with you! What does mummy do to protect you from nasty flees or ticks? We need something better then we’ve been doing. Our yard is safe, but not the rest of the world!

    I think about the closest you’ll be to me is North Carolina and that still 4 or 5 hours away but maybe will catch you on some other trip! I love packing for trips for the babies! I have little totes that I keep over the bed storage. of course, I’ve never gone on a 2 month long trip, but we seem to pack fairly similarly. Gotta dress those cute little babies! And your girls are so adorable!

      We have actually been to California TWICE NOW… on two very long trips and been up and down that beautiful coast… meeting lots and lots of our friends. This year we decided to do the EAST COAST.

    Millie, your mummy is very well organized, just like my mommy. My mommy loves learning all the great ideas your mummy has. From now on she will be packing our clothes in clear plastic bins when traveling. She wishes you all were coming to Connecticut so she and my daddy could meet up with you. She wants to introduce you to our new baby sister named Hyacinth Honeysuckle. But she so understands, there is only so much time and planning a route is very time consuming to be able to get to your destinations. Your summer sure sounds like so much fun. We look forward to hearing about your adventures. Loves Lila Pearl

    Dear Millie and Mummy,

    I’m thrilled that you’re embarking on another adventure, and sad that I won’t be able to meet up with you this summer. That being said, you’re going to visit some wonderful places up and down the east coast and it’s going to be a lovely trip for all of you! Safe travels, and I look forward to reading about your adventures. Kiss kiss.
