A TRAGICOMIC DAY SPENT IN THE BEAUTIFUL CITY OF VERONA, BETWEEN BAGS FOR DOGS, MINIBAGS, COATS AND harnesses.
Hi to all my friends, today I want to tell you what happens in the family when we go to the city, we country dogs!
Do you remember me? Is there any new visitor?
It is Switch, or rather Dr. Switch, the nephew of the wise uncle Wally. They are .. er ... we are the dog owners of Switchdog, the petfriendly brand of our mother Laura. He shares with her the passion for dogs, father Pier.
Whoever takes care of us is always the mother, who is a little careless and always busy, with a thousand things to do.
We left very late for our weekend in the city and Mama packed at least 4 changes of dog accessories, including our favorite Ribbon Norway harnesses in the new spring colors, 4 little coats each (but who puts them on with the heat that makes?), our dog carrier for hotel stays, bowls and baby food as if there were no tomorrow and everything necessary for a survival course of at least 30 days at the edge of the world! Ah ... Women !!
He also accessorized his bag with a personalized dog poop bag holder for her, limited edition for my dog (I'm IO !!).
All perfect. Also for her and papy she filled a suitcase for a 15-day vacation and so, beautiful loads, we left for Verona, where they welcomed us with open arms at the Hotel Milano & spa; a super cool structure with fantastic views of the Arena and even more fantastic hospitality for us 4-legged.
Uncle Wally and I want to compliment this 100% PetFriendly Hotel, thank you for giving us a nice pillow (even if we have a little snubbed!). And thanks for the mini doggybag you gave us at the restaurant to enjoy your meals in the room at best!
In short, all fantastic, except for one particular ...... We make our bisognini at home in the meadow, but in the city they must be collected and of course the mother has brought her super trendy poop bag but .... IT HASN'T INSERTED A REFILL FOR THE BAGS ....... So poor Pier had to beg from the passers-by for some bags to collect our puzzettes !!! What a figure !!!
The moral of this day: go and trust women, especially with one or two dogs!
Thanks Verona for the welcome and thanks Hotel Milano & spa for the kindness and ......... thank you for existing Papy !!
Word of my dog, Dr. Switch.
Today I'm talking about an essential product for our walks, a "must have": the dog carrier for our neighbors.
There are many on the market, but a careful choice is necessary: it will also be a useful accessory, but why renounce aesthetics? After all, it's like our walking bag!
Most bon ton cases are made of rigid plastic and I will not tell you the noise they produce when they bang here and there when our owner takes us for a walk!
On the market of luxury accessories for dogs, the most popular and widespread shoe cases, aim at the recognizable and relevant image of the bone and the colors and patterns are so many! Some companies have chosen to make some rubber, perhaps just to meet us in the protection of our hearing.
Speaking of shapes, I do not understand that some of these accessories recall objects or animals very distant from us: the flower, who knows it if not because I pee on it; I eat the fish every day even if it does not make me crazy, but we are not friends ...., or the flask ... do you think it remotely resembles a Saint Bernard dog?
Another important factor is: who brings the accessory? The dog or the master?
I think it must harmonize with both and not be an obstacle.
I hate to bind me objects of dubious taste or see them dangle in front of my face! They are hypnotic !!! And then that ugly those dogs all haughty that go around with the green bag tied to the leash: Uncle Wally, I would never like this as my partner!
So, following my advice as a true dandy dog, my owner tried to combine aesthetics and functionality, just thinking of the needs mentioned above.
Use soft bags in vinyl or neoprene, which have "very lovely" shapes and colors. Not only the classic bone, but also a heart, a symbol of the bond that unites us, a small handbag, because he knows I'm sensitive to fashion, and a nose that looks like mine! But what I love the most is the bone incorporated on a leash: the result is a minimal product! He stands in his place, he is discreet and silent, he does his job without making me look ridiculous.
And then every now and then Laura has the brilliant idea, as we are two, Uncle Wally and me, to put the little bags directly attached to her bag, which we like a lot because it makes it too different from other mothers, and we always want distinguish ourselves! I said mine. What do you think? Do you share your walks with a cup cake or a matryoshka? Uncle and I NO! We want to be super fashion urban and dandy dog from the tip of the ears to the cork that we have to queue.
This morning there is a good smell of fresh grass in the air. Spring is approaching and the flowers that are starting to bloom are declaring it to the world with their amazing colors and their intoxicating perfumes ...... excellent for pissing here and there!
Uncle Wally tries to teach me where it is best to pee and where if I do my mother screams me: nooooooo now Dad is angry at her ......... .., but I do as I want: I'm the boss and then I'm small who scolds me!
But when I go to the city it's the best time for me to do my solid needs, so at least my humans do not have to collect anything in the garden and my friend Ambrogio, the robotic whirlwind that always follows me and disturbs me in my raids to the lawn, do not dirty the wheels.
Of course in the city there are other problems always related to the collection of my waste and those of Uncle Wally: now it is a must that every owner has with him the necessaire to collect our needs and then my mother, to be always at ' last fashion does not make us miss anything.
Think and rethink, talk and talk with Uncle Wally and what's going on with you ?: he creates special dog bags for us. We dogs that we do not like the sound of plastic slamming on a leash, which we drop the classic plastic so many times and break the rings, but we want new luxury accessories for dogs designed for us and studied on purpose and with love.
And what is invented? The first heart-shaped dog carrier in the shape of a heart: my mother loves us and so what could you invent, if not a heart?
This heart, Uncle Wally and I often give it to our friends who come to visit us in our studio, as a sign of our affection and of the love that binds every quadruped to his inseparable biped .......Love does not need many words, heart is the highest expression of love that every person who chooses to share their life with a dog must have, also represents an important choice in the use of the materials they have chosen at Switchdog, all strictly of non-animal origin, in full respect of us dogs!
