The P@W (short for Pet At Work) is such a great way to tote a pet to the office, it's high on my latest items-to-lust-after list. Even though the official TYDTWDay isn't until June, I was so excited to spot this item, I just couldn't hold on 'til then.
The revolutionary travel system keeps your furry friend safely away from the rest of your bag's contents. It functions as a carrier – with a small detachable dome and comfy mat if you've got a meeting – and the separate, zippered section cushioned for your laptop and any paper work. What else do you need?! Oh yeah, that small pet to go inside.
I'm a fan, Amanda's a fan, and even Christina's a fan. Now, we spot Natalie Portman toting her cute pooch across the country in a Sherpa, too! I have this very model of the popular brand because of its special flap features: You can roll and snap up the sides to let a pet breathe the fresh air, but then pull down the shades for some shut-eye on the plane.
It's also a practical purchase from the price standpoint as well – the Sherpa Roll-Up normally retails for $85 and up but I did a quick search to see what deals I could sniff out. Lo and behold I found the small size for just $55, the medium one for $76, and the largest version for $88. Will you set sail with this celebrity pet trend or does your furball already have a Sherpa in stock?
At first glance, I thought this carrier was waaaay to big to fit as any airplane carryon, but I was wrong! This Jet Setter ($170 and up) rolls upright and, when laid on the side, slides right under the seat in front of you. Meant for pets up to 15 pounds, this bag weighs only about three pounds with the wheels removed. It comes in a rainbow of colors (I like the camo and titanium best), materials like rugged canvas and ballistic nylon, and offers lots of ventilation for your lil guy – there's even enough pockets to serve as your personal item, too. What's more is that it easily straps into a seatbelt for a safe trip to the airport for your high-flying pets. . . it's time for takeoff!
I love to see celebs getting snuggly with their pooches, so how delighted was I to catch this glimpse of Susan Sarandon and her lil Maltese?! Even so, I'm less pleased to witness the furry-pal-inside-purse phenom later that night.
Granted, the two were attending Longchamp's 60th Anniversary celebration in NYC, so the Legende Satchel was a must-have, but where's a proper tote for her precious pet, Penny? Next time, hopefully she'll carry that metallic trend with an appropriate luxe, gold (dog) bag like these below.
