I’m daily enamored with the exciting stuff featured on Fab, and this past week I almost bought one of these awesome leather desk caddies from Argentinian company Vacavaliente (which my grade-school Spanish tells me means “brave cow.” Heh.). The caddy — which can hold pens, pencils, stamps, paperclips, whatever — is made from reclaimed, reconstituted leather. Check it out in action over at Dogster, and contact Vacavaliente for retailers.
Sure, we all love the relaxing feeling of floating in a pool, the sun beating down on you while you dip your hands in the cold water at your side, softly swaying in the breeze. What makes you think your dog wouldn’t love it, too?
Call me a dork and call it a fanny pack, but I like the idea of this dog walking belt created by Cesar Millan and DOOG. This product is great for long hikes or short walks when you’re out of pocket space. The custom belt includes special holders for your keys, iPod and even a tennis ball, plus it comes equipped with doggie waste bags and antibacterial hand wipes. Fanny pack or not, this is smart. Buy it on Cesar’s site.
When it comes to dogs, bandanas are the ultimate accessory. You tie one little piece of fabric around a dog’s neck, and boom, that dog’s ready for a party or for an adventure or for a job (or for gang membership, depending on the bandana’s color and placement). I wish accessorizing were that easy for humans. And now Wildebeest has taken the doggie bandana to a whole ‘nother level with their new XX Bandana Collar, a classy collar/bandana combo released just last week.
With this week being the first week of Summer, and temperatures being unusually high in my neck of the woods, I’ve been thinking a lot about ways to keep my dog, Miles, cool. He hates the heat! Looking around, I came across Bone Pools by One Dog One Bone.
As a big fan of little products that work wonders, I was excited to come across Pet Top portable drinking devices. Pet Top attaches to most standard water bottles and is an incredibly convenient way to give your dog water when you’re on the go. The combo pack includes an adapter to fit an even wider selection of water bottles. For $7 at Perpetual Kid, I’m definitely going to be investing in two sets, one for my purse and another to keep in the glove compartment of my car.
Amailo is an adorable little shop full of crochet doggie-wear that makes me “awww” out loud. Named after Mailo, the fetching Jack Russel model seen in all of these photos, Amailo creates each one of these beautiful crochet bandanas to order and in a variety of different colors, just for your dog.
