This was by far the most popular Dog Jaunt giveaway ever — 85 of you entered to win, and that means the comments section on the giveaway post contains a wealth of excellent dog travel tips. I have learned so much over the past week — thank you, and thank you, too, to the kind souls who praised the blog.
The randomly-chosen winner is Davinah S., entrant #5, whose tip was to “Try to find flights that leave late in the evening! A good long walk, and your dog will already be a bit sleepy because their bedtime is soon!” Congratulations, Davinah! Please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your shipping address, and which color combination you want for your carrier (charcoal/black or chocolate/pink). As I mentioned, I’ll have Kobi send the carrier directly to you, and I’ll send the mesh luggage wrap (still not available on Kobi’s site, or elsewhere) separately from Seattle. [6/2/13 update: The Luggage Adapter is now available on Kobi’s web site.]
Thank you again to everyone who entered! So many of you will be bummed not to have won, and I’m sorry about that. If you’d like to purchase one for yourself, Amazon sells the Kobi Pet Carrier: All sizes, both colorsand the large costs $114. Despite what Amazon says, that’s the same price that Kobi sells the large carrier for (why is $129 grayed out in the Amazon listing?). If you’re signed up for free shipping from Amazon, you may decide to go that route, but please note that Kobi also offers free shipping. And that leads me to my final thank you — thanks to Kobi Pets for letting me know about its new, larger carrier and mesh luggage wrap, for sending me a set to try out, and for agreeing that I could give them away to a Dog Jaunt reader!
