With temps still reaching the 70s in SF lately, North and I have been taking advantage of the weather, and going for nice long walks on the weekends.
With temps still reaching the 70s in SF lately, North and I have been taking advantage of the weather, and going for nice long walks on the weekends. You can pretty much bet that two out of three times, I'll forget to grab his pop-up bowl from my car, leaving me to buy a sports cap bottle in the nearest convenience store and play drinking fountain with it as he laps water mid-air. Although there's nothing wrong with this practice, I've found a solution I will never run out of the house without (unless I forget my wallet . . . and then we're both in trouble): The Aqua Bol ($6).
This simple, yet stylish water bowl comes in three colors, and folds up to the size of a credit card so you can stick it in your wallet when you need it. No more using your hands! Although I'm sure it's the germaphobe in me talking, it feels a little unsanitary for North to drink from my grubby hands after petting other dogs during a walk in the park, and handling his dirty fetching ball. I know I wouldn't want to drink from those hands, so why should he? Either way, this is a genius solution that had me saying, "Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?"
