How many of you humans are owned by a canine who exceeds 5 or 6 pounds? And how many of you have secretly imagined what it might be like to load up your mastiff in a hip little purse to go lunch with the ladies?
Well, whether or not the thought has crossed your mind- and more importantly, whether or not you are willing to admit it- this post is for you!
One thing I love about my work is that I get to meet all sorts of creative, critter loving humans! Recently, the uber creative designer Phil Jones, sent me this link to the above super fun dog-related 'product.' I think what I like most about it is that it stands for the idea that anything is possible and that one should 'never say never'- one of my favorite phrases!
In a world with its share of stress and sadness- it's really nice to get the occasional reminder to lighten up and have a laugh for its own sake. This is one thing our companion animals need not be reminded of as they seem uniquely in touch with the ability to live, laugh and appreciate the moment.
Phil shared that the purse-riding-dog in the photos is Milo- a 3 year old Bull Mastiff-Standard Poodle Mix who is a huge advocate for adoption and rescue dogs. Milo encourages all humans to consider fostering or adopting one of his loyal adoptable pals.
While Phil's purse is not readily available as much more than a reminder to take ourselves in jest- I, for one, would get in line to purchase one for my crew!

A big thanks to Phil for sending this our way!

P.S. The purse is made from vegan materials too- so, no animals were harmed in the making of it -yay!
