Happy Thorsday, little friday and Thankful Thursday! The girls survived all of the 4th celebrations, which is reason enough to give thanks. I’m really blending everything all into one today, because I’m thankful that I found some awesome dog walking accessories that work fabulously for us.
After our great discussions about what you use to stay hydrated – and to keep your dogs hydrated – while you are out on the move, we stumbled upon the CamelBak FlashFlo Lumbar Pack. It holds 50 ounces, so while we’re doing cool morning walks, that’s enough for all of us. I just clip on a collapsible bowl and away we go.
Interestingly enough, the lumbar version is far more comfortable for me and my bad back. There’s more than enough room for my iPhone, lip balm and whatever else I might want to tote.
The other big find was also from Sierra Trading Post, but they are evidently sold out now, but Amazon has several Buff Insect Shield patterns to choose from.
I just wad mine up and use them as a wide headband, but there are gobs of ways to wear them. I know Insect Shield works, because the girls and I have worn the bandanas we were given two years ago with great success. In a disgusting confession, I cannot say how well they really hold up to laundering, because I’ve never washed ours, and after two summers of use, they’ve finally peetered out. (The originals were in bandana form; I cut one into half, then one half into half. Sissy got the full half and Gretchen and I each took a quarter. I tied mine around my ponytail.)
I’m thankful for such technology. Anything that keeps bugs and sweat out of my face makes me happy, and finding a hydration pack that works for me, and was on sale makes me REALLY happy!
What are you thankful for today?
