Giveaway: SturdiProducts’ Incognito pet tote ($65 value)

Last Friday, I posted a review of the Incognito tote from SturdiProducts. It’s a roomy tote — roomy enough, in fact, to hold your dog, her leash, and a small purse’s worth of your own gear — and it’s remarkably discreet. I bought one for myself, after posting the review.

SturdiProducts sent me the tote in maroon (“Bordeaux,” they call it). It costs $65, so I am obliged by my own rules to give it away. My thanks  … Read more

Product review: SturdiProducts’ Incognito Pet Carrier

I was asked about this carrier — which I hadn’t seen — by a reader who has a larger small dog, like Chloe, and was looking for an around-town tote.

Photo Friday: Chloe and the lacrosse game

On a gorgeous day like today, it’s hard to remember that two weeks ago, Chloe and I were huddled up together on the sidelines of a lacrosse game in Hopkinton, Massachusetts.

Breaking the rules: Sneaking your dog into forbidden territory in a “stealth” bag

Yesterday I wrote a review of the Fundle Ultimate Pet Carrier, and mentioned that I’d been asked by a reader to evaluate it as a potential “stealth” bag for her Cavalier puppy. One of my more dedicated readers objected to the word “stealth,” commenting that the “tag implies you are using the bag to take your dog where it is prohibited. Doing so, and getting caught, may further hold back people and places from adopting a pet friendly attitude.”

Product review: Fundle Ultimate Pet Sling

Chloe in the large Fundle sling

Longer ago than I’d like to admit, a reader wrote to me and asked what I thought of the Fundle pet carrier. She wanted a stealth bag for her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, but thought that the PetEgo messenger bag I’ve recommended would be too big for her (she’s petite, and she has some neck/back problems). I’m on it, I told her, and I sent away for a large Fundle carrier (the carrier is  … Read more
