Today was the first day that felt like summer here. Which was bittersweet for me, as the weather forecast claims the warmth was only temporary. Miles and I are very well-matched in most ways, but our opinions of what is a comfortable temperature is where our similarities depart! We went on a few walks to run errands today, and he was not impressed with the “blistering emma-is-trying-to-kill-me-by-walking-me heat.”
I like to have a light-weight foldable dog bowl with me all the times, especially when it starts to get warm out. I consider this the ultimate useful summer dog gear. Even if I don’t have the time to fill a water bottle, at least I know I have a bowl (rather than my hands) to fill anywhere and offer to Miles. I am a fan of this new line by Stickdog. The outside of each bowl is made from recycled coffee bags, and the inside is made from recycled rain coats! Ingenious. Shannon at Stickdog makes these bowls (which come with a handy carabiner) with the support of her handsome beagle Basil. I whole-heartedly recommend these eco-friendly and machine-washable bowls, which are available at the Stickdog etsy shop.
