Pumpkin Patch Puppies & Autumn Adventures | Secretts of Milford

Hi all, and happy #woofwoofwednesday! 

We went on a lovely little trip yesterday, and I couldn't wait to share my photos with you. As far as I can remember, I've never been pumpkin picking. It's something I've always wanted to do, and it's been on my Autumn bucket list for several years, but I've just never made time for it. Now that we have the dogs, I was determined to visit a pumpkin patch, and Becky's post (which you can find here) sealed the deal. We posted on twitter asking for recommendations, and the lovely Adventures of Doodles told us that they were visiting Secretts of Milford on Tuesday, and to tag along if we wanted to!

I love the above photo, which shows a little behind-the-scenes look at a dog blogger's photoshoot! Tilly's Mum managed to get a few photos of my two hooligans as well as the photogenic poodles, and I can't wait to see them. Of course, the dogs donned their halloween outfits. and they looked SO cute. Some people actually came up and asked if they could have a photo with them, which baffled my boyfriend, bless him. Along with the gorgeous trio of Colin, Rhapsody and Tilly, our doggies caused quite a stir! The venue was reasonably dog-friendly: we couldn't take them on the tractor or in the café (totally understandable!) but other than that, they were allowed everywhere when kept on-lead. The manager was super helpful, too.

The poodles were so well-trained, they really put my two to shame! I was gobsmacked by how well they posed. I was also so pleased that all the dogs got along; Winnie can be so nervous, and apparently Colin is a bit unsure of daxies, so us parents were super pleased with how they all behaved!

It was such a lovely afternoon. I forgot to take cash so I ended up buying only the teeniest little pumpkin, but it's sitting proudly on our mantelpiece as a little autumn decoration. Taking the dogs on adventures is my absolute favourite, and I'm hoping to make pumpkin picking a yearly tradition. 

Thank you for reading! Have you ever been pumpkin picking?

EDIT: I've now seen the photos that Tilly's mum took... oh my goodness, they are amazing! I'm going to have to do a part two for this trip I think.


  1. Okay, it's official! I just cannot cope with the cuteness! I'm feeling so inspired to visit one myself. Looks like you had a wonderful time.
