In big cities like the big apple, if you're taking public transit, hailing a cab, or trying to
sneak bring a doggie into a shop, you're often only allowed if your pet fits in a carrier. But, I remember from one of our first PetMarking missions, there are plenty of cute cases out there for people to choose and use! I don't agree with dog-as-accessory, and I think putting a pup in your purse – a bag not sold specifically for pet purposes – can hurt both the doggie and the bag. Now, Todd Oldham's certainly a busy man – being the new creative director of Old Navy causes him to jet between NYC and SF and sometimes, I'd imagine, he just grabs the first bag laying around before running errands. While there's nothing wrong with his classic L.L. Bean Boat and Tote, but I'd love for him to express that preppiness with a petspecific version instead. If you want to see which carrier I have in mind, then read more.
First off, Todd's doggy does not look comfy in that bag – it's meant for groceries and magazines, and the little one can barely see out despite obvious neck straining. This sturdy Wagwear Boat Canvas Carrier includes a crucial leash attachment and buckle closure (for the squirmers) and a handy peek-ready slot to give doggies a good view. It comes in a rainbow of color combos and two sizes for around $100.
