It’s so much fun for you and your pup to accompany you on outings! My Chihuahua just loves to head out anywhere! She gets all excited and runs around when she sees her carrier coming out of the closet and ready for use. Reecie prefers a carrier that allows her head out so she can be well attuned to what is happening. Actually, if I put her in a closed carrier, she usually manages to find a way out! Before I know it, I see her little head working itself out of a tiny opening and struggling to get out in the real world! So, I have decided to use an open carrier, which has a leash to keep her securely tucked inside. The Pink Blossom Straw tote is a favorite of ours! It is from A Pet’s World and is cute, comfortable and easy to carry! http://www.upscalepup.com/product.php?productid=17575&cat=0&page=1 When pups are taken out to the public from the time they are young, they are generally very well adjusted friendly pets. I realize this is not always the case, but it’s usually beneficial to start young! So, enjoy those days out. And remember, during the cold months, add a sweater on the pooch so she won’t end up shivering! Happy adventures!
