OllyDog Dog Pack

I ordered one of these last night for my lab LuLu thereby extending my obsession with gear to my canine friends. Most of the bags of this type that I have seen locally are uninspiring – the bag market for dogs here is huge but are designed for people to carry their dogs not to have your dog carry things for you. While not big enough to fit large gadgets (could you imagine your dog chasing after a squirrel with your precious MacBook in tow?), it should be fine for the refreshments we might need on the photo shoots I have planned for the summer. They are currently on sale at REI-OUTLET.com but I’ve seen it elsewhere. If this works out I might try the larger Mountainsmith Dog Pack for longer excursions.
