A nickname, that is!
I’m willing to bet that you have at least one nickname for your dog. If you’re like me, you probably have more than one. 😉
Teton’s nicknames include but are not limited to: T, Mr. T, Goonie, Goon, Goon Bird, Goose, Goosey, Goose Man, Puppa, Dude, and Dude-O. That’s a pretty comprehensive list in case you were wondering.
The Goose and I just got back from our nightly walk.
We’ve been alternating between shorter and longer walks each night. Shorter meaning around 30 minutes and longer meaning 50 – 60. Now that it’s not so “warm” out The Little Blogger doesn’t get overheated so we can handle those 60 minute walks even if the sun is out. Which, of course, it hardly ever is in Washington. 😕
Oh, and I say “warm” because warm in Washington means over 75 degrees. I love the heat but TLB isn’t used to it so I can’t blame him for getting hot with all that fur.
Anyhoo, it’s Etsy Wednesday!
I’m a little bit addicted to Etsy. Along with searching for jewelry, handmade clothing, and other rando things for my house, I always make time to check out what Etsy sellers have for pets.
On Monday I came across this:
Did you happen to notice that little opening in the far left corner of the bag?
It’s a built-in doodie bag holder! Be still my heart.
If you’re reading this right now and you don’t have a dog or are a straight male, I can totally understand that you’re all WTF is this hideous thing? But take a walk with me down explanation lane.
Dog walks don’t always call for a shoulder bag or backpack, but haven’t you ever gone out to eat and dined on a restaurant patio that allowed dogs? Maybe your dog was thirsty and you wished you had a portable dog bowl and a bottle of water. Or maybe you were on a hot date and wished you could have pulled out a Himalayan Dog Chew to pacify your dog’s boredom and to impress your date for having such a well-mannered dog that sat quietly and chewed on the best treat of all time. Maybe you’ve taken your dog with you on a family vacation to the beach and found yourself needing more than just a couple of poo bags while your dog happily followed your kids into the fresh salty ocean. (You needed a towel in that situation in case you were wondering.)
Well, for all that extra stuff you didn’t know you needed, here’s a view of the inside of the Dog Walking Bag:
Look at all that space! Room for your cell, your portable dog bowl, a water bottle, a bag of treats…you name it!
Ever been walking your dog after they’ve done a twoski and grimaced at the smell coming from the poo bag that was burning your nostril hair and making your eyes water? Why not just throw it in the lined pocket on the backside of the Dog Walking Bag until you find a trash can?
Check out the Dog Walking Bag’s specs:
