So, this happened. I purchased this doggy sling on Doggyloot and when it arrived, I excitedly tore open the box, figured out how to put it on and plopped my little Joey in there. It wasn’t until I was wearing the thing with Joey in tow that I realized how kind of ridiculous this item is. And by ridiculous I, of course, mean amazing. For me, this was “that moment” when I realized I’ve gone completely overboard. And you can tell by the look on Joey’s face that he agrees.
When I ordered the sling I thought it was more like a messenger bag style soft carrier but it’s full on baby sling. I received a slew of comments when I posted this photo on facebook one of which was, “Katie have a kid!” I’m not sure I’ll ever have the guts to actually use this in public but who knows? Joey gets nervous in new places and when he’s nervous, he get clumsy. That results in me picking him up and carrying him. I thought this carrier would help in those types of situations. I have a more traditional soft carrier that works great but it’s a little bulky. What’s the silliest item you’ve purchased for your pets?
