Fall is mine and my mom's favorite season. Today Mom could not resist any longer and took me to Millhome Nursery so I could help her pick out mum's for our outdoor fall decorations. Oh, how I love riding on the flower cart and smelling all the pretty flowers!! Isn't it great all the things that have wheels to help me get around? My wheelchair, my mom's bike as she takes me riding in my doggie basket, the car to take me to meet new people, and my doggie stroller to walk with my mom every morning. I so love wheels!!
