peanut shell puppy




i thought
 it was
 called
 baby bjorn

 but 
its not

i googled

 there are several
 baby carrier slings
 one is called
 peanut shell
 another
 balboa 
yet
 another
 moby wrap

 intended for babies
 this woman
 took it a step 
further
 she's carrying
 her pup
 in
 a sling

 she told me
 she's been practicing at home
 it will enable them
 to get to the park
 faster
 she said
 because
her pup 
tends
 to
dawdle

 hard to believe
 with
 all that
 i didn't 
get
 either
 her name or the dog's

  1. When MB was tiny I carried him in a Moby wrap, and more than one person asked me if I had a kitten in it...

  3. Oh, I should get a great big one, in case Dick decides to carry all 88 lbs. of Lindy home some day. "Well, she was limping, so I..."
    Now we need to see if her regular sitters can take her while the dining room floor is being ripped up, repaired, and redone.
    There may be some holes in it, requiring work on the beams underneath, and blind dogs don't do well with unexpected holes enroute to the dog bed.
    Sigh.

  4. Lol, I thought the idea was to exercise the dog!?! Maybe it's too cold outside and if she carries the dog then she will heat up to be able to stand around in the park while she cools down and the dog runs around. It's a working theory. :)

  5. I LOVE the idea of a pup in a sling. Good for her for her ingenuity!

  6. OMGoodness, this looks like a white version of my Ziggy! I actually have one of these slings. Not something I would buy, but it "came with" Ziggy. It actually has a clip for a leash inside of it too. I've not tried it yet, and not sure I will. xo.

  7. I like your people pictures. The city is such a foreign place to a lot of us. Well, it used to be less so for me.

  8. So cute! Our youngest son and his wife have a pup that doesn't care to walk on the leash.....but I guess constant practice is leading to good results. I think she would be too large for this carrier, though.

  10. I'm going to be the sh*t disturber and say that I think it's silly. Dogs need to stop and sniff and leave their little yellow calling cards at strategic places along the way. Sure we get good exercise when we don't have to wait for the pooch to stop, sniff and pee on everything but to me, the walk is as much, if not more so for the dog than it is for me. It's his time to explore. Sowwy.
