It's Road Trip Time!

Posted by F&S

We Frenchies and G.K. decided to pack up our things and take a little excursion to our home in East Hampton.  First, we got out all of our favorite travel supplies from the Martha Stewart Pets line at PetSmart.  Then, we decked out the back seat with a really comfortable Martha Stewart Pets Travel Hammock for a really comfortable ride.

Here we are all ready to take a road trip to Lily Pond, our home in East Hampton.  The three of us are sitting comfortably in the back seat in the Car Seat Hammock.

We also packed the 2-in-1 Travel Bowl, which flattens and snaps closed for easy storage and transport.  The two bowls open out - one for food and another lined bowl to accommodate water.

The drawstring closure can store dry food for later use, and a side pocket offers additional storage for treats.   We LOVE that aspect!

I, Francesca, am wearing the Dog Lifejacket.  I'm anxious to go swimming in the pool at Lily Pond.  This fashionable number is perfect for boating, fishing, swimming, or beach visits, and it even has a top handle for lifting.

As you may know, I, Sharkey, don't like the water and I'd rather play with the 3-Ring Rope, which exercises the mouth and promotes healthy teeth and gums.

There's Vivaldi in the front seat.  Now we just need Uncle Carlos to start driving.

  • ..road trip..how cool!..love all the neat gear...you are some lucky doggies and kitty..love, Black Mama

  • Hello Girls, G.K. & The Glue Squad,
    This road trip is an exciting adventure, especially with all these new travel items. It is good you 3 have each for the journey. A life jacket Franny, that is good. Mom says Frenchies sink, so be careful. I haven't seen the 3 of you in action at your Lily Pond home. What fun this journey will be with all the treats in the bag along the way. How long are you staying---for the rest of the summer? That is neat that Vivaldi gets to go also. That hammock looks a little scarey to me. I usually have the entire back of the Jeep to myself on our way to the park/lake. I will look forward to seeing you at Lily Pond soon. Can hardly wait to hear from all my Glue Squad buddies today. And we get to hear all about Dixie Boy. Black Mama, hope those Chiweenies and Ivan and Ivanka don't terrorize you too much. Maddox, how is the kennel coming? Abby, I am so upset too about your geese and ducks. They need to have a home. Kirby how is the itching this summer, sounds better? Dudley and Rebel are all the gardens planted? Not all my flower seeds are coming up. The weather has been crazy here. Well, everyone, have a GEM of a day and Sonya and Delia, hugs and loves to you. Kitty be good while Mom and Dad are seeing the grandogs.
    Love and licks,
    Ruby

  • Uncle C and the critters go on a field trip! Love it! :)

    Vivaldi looks rather dapper in the blue carrying case.

    Here's to a happy and safe road trip, with hopefully little 'pit stops' along the way!

  • Good morning everyone,
    First things first, WELCOME DIXIE BOY. Can't wait to hear about you. A little tip for those of you that hate baths. They make a rinse less shampoo in a spray bottle and dry shampoo in a spray can. You spray it on, rub it around the fur and towel dry. Bath over and you smell much better. I call it BBB. Big Baby Bath. Hehehehehehehe. Speaking of things that make me laugh, Kirby, you crack me up. And before I say this I do not mean any negative thoughts about the cats on this list. But, we don't even know Kirby's cat's name. I know Kirby is not too fond of his cat roomie so when he saw the cat get drenched, I can just picture Kirby rolling on the floor with laughter. Thanks for sharing that Kirby. Black Mamma, I hope having all those dogs around will give Lucinda and James to maybe one day get another dog. They need something furry to hug and I know you are a great help but you like your distance and they respect that.
    Off to the Hamptons? You three and now even the cat, are going to have a blast And you are well prepared with all those useful products that Martha has at Petsmart. I am sure you will have a blast. Have a safe trip.
    And to the rest of you Glue Squad maniacs, stay kool.
    Love to all,
    Maddox

  • Hello G.K., Sharkey,Francesca,Maddox, Vivaldi! Black mama, Kitty, Kirby's Cat,Empress Tang,Ruby and all my glue squad buddies,
    Hurray a road trip!! I loved the pictures of all three dogs and my friend Vivaldi getting ready for a nice drive. G.K. you look so handsome! We are happy a feline buddy is also along for the trip.
    Maddox, you are wonderful and I enjoy your erudite comments. Dudley, how are you today? Welcome Dixie Boy!!! Black Mama hope you have fun with the chiweenies. Zoe, did you see the nice life jacket? Be safe by your pool, we know you like to have pool parties. Ruby, thanks for remembering the ducks. The fate of our pond friends is unclear, the geese are not going to be there much longer. I hope the ducks are safe.
    Did you see how nice and clean Abby is after her bath?? Yes, she had one after Sharkey and Franny. Maybe Ruby is next??? Have a PURRRRFECT day!

  • Morning Girls, GK, Vivaldi & Glue Squad - A road trip; how much fun will that be and all neat accessories too. Take plenty of pictures. You will have so much fun at Lily Pond. Well, it seems forever since I had computer time-you see, I wasn't a very good girl on the weekend and Mom wouldn't let me use the computer for a couple of days. Since I'm trying to turn over a new paw, and my sad brown eyes looking at her, she finally said okay, you can post to all your friends. Sooo, here I am...Abby & James Dean, love your pictures, Mom printed them for her album. Maddox & Kirby, I'm shedding and Dad noticed a small spot on my back leg, nothing serious, just limited fur in that spot, are you shedding? Ruby, I take up the back seat too when I go with Mom & Dad, so much room to stretch. Zoe, have you had pool time recently after all the rain? Black Mama, sounds like you have things under control at the ranch. Kitty, enjoy your trip. Dudley Do Right, how's the garden? Rebel, what's new? Martha, Lucy & Riley, hope you are having a good time at the breeders. When do you go to your new house? Welcome Dixie Boy, tell us all about yourself. Hi Baby Favor, Chloe. Better not push my luck, it's Mom's turn for the computer.

    Till next time,
    Missy Chow

  • Good Morning Everyone,
    Thank you for the warm welcome into the club.
    Ohhh, I love my bed from the Martha line at Petsmart.
    I've not been able to go to the store myself and pick out what I want though. Something about Mis's pockets not being deep enough. I'm still abit of a rough diamond in some cases. HA!
    Okay, bit more about me.
    I was a late night Road Runner. Mis's brother-in-law Ray saw me running down the road and I followed him home. I live on a dead end road and many like me just get left there. I don't repeat what Mis says when that happens. Many get to join her cousin's gang up the road. He's real nice and provides a safe place for many homeless dogs live. But I wanted to go home with Ray that night. I'm the LITTLE dog that he brought home. All 40 lbs. of skin and bones then.
    Not now though. I've got a great life now. It was rough going in the beginning. I had never been in a place where I was respected and I had to learn that I had to be respectful too. That was the hardest lesson. Ruby,I understand your trust issues. I've still got them too.
    I guess I'm about 5 years old, 6 this year. Mis said that I was a year old when I arrived. That's my birthday, August 7. I guess I'm a Black Lab/Shepherd Mix. Mis says that I sometimes look like a Pit Bull Terrier and I can act a bit like a Border Collie. But I'm NOT "Just a Dog". She's told me that I saved her when she saved me. We both got a pretty good deal.
    Okay, time for Mis to get back to work. I'm going to chill. We had rain and storms last night. I'm a bit worn out this morning.
    Have a wonder filled day, Dixie Boy

  • Good morning ladies,
    Well, the wheels are under you and off you go! I see a can of Science Diet. I miss canned food. Mimi was feeding canned food when I was sick & had to take so many pills.
    Well, I love to go to Pet Smart. It smells great in there! I see other friends and get to pick out new toys. Maybe I'll try swimming in the lake with Eli & Bekah this weekend. If I like it, maybe Mimi will get me a swimming jacket, too.
    I know you all will have a great time in the Hamptons.
    Duck Report - a new family has arrived! There is a Mama with 5 teenie-weenie ducklings. They are soooo little that they can hide in the grass! My other brood is getting so big.
    Big party on the lake Friday. Summer solstice! There will be a floating bonfire.
    It sure was great to see Jimmy Dean and Abby's pictures. My what blue eyes you have Jimmy!
    Big welcome to Dixie Boy! Howdy do to you!
    Great day all.
    Your pal,
    Rebel

  • Road trips are always so much fun. I love the road trip gear especially the hammock. Does it come in different sizes? Vivaldi looks very comfortable too. Wow all of you guys together!

    Welcome to the Paw-ty Dixie Boy. Your bittersweet story gave me happy tears. I'm so glad that you, Mis, and Ray all found each other. I apologize for missing sending out greetings to the newest Glue Squadders such as Jimmy Dean. Must do better! :smile:

  • Finished off reading and commenting on old posts...phew!

    Vivaldi is the only Gato going to the home in East Hampton?? Doesn't seem fair =^. .^=
    So all of you going, have indeed a splendid time! Just don't do what I did.....
    My vacation started out like several other vacations...dummie delia took a flying leap off the front porch landing on her stomach and face... Yep the Raisin face! I have a B/B chin, scraped lip and several tiny chips on my teeth, knee the size of the moon, chin bone with a gash and lots of color, hand, wrist, toes all look Ugly! BUT, this time I did not fracture anything...yahoo!
    My hubby says, I can't take you anywhere! Having reported all this, I'm fine!! ;-)

    Kitty report says, she is just fine and being spoiled by auntie...
    JD and Black Mama prurrrs to you, also to Ruby and Maddox a hug!
