I’ve started putting together a list of items I will need. And some that I won’t need at all, but are too cute to resist :-p I’ve only looked at one shop so far, but obviously intend on checking out more. That’s why I’ve decided to gather everything into one Pinterest board:
It’s much easier than having to create separate wish lists on every different shop site. Feel free to follow my Pinterest, by the way!
The first item that caught my eye is strictly practical. It’s the Water Rover. I honestly wish I had found this back when Jack was alive (not sure it actually existed yet though). When I took him out for long walks, I always made sure to carry water with me (very important! Especially in warm weather). I carried a bottle of water, plus a separate bowl. And of course there was always leftover water in the bowl, which I then had to throw away … every time. Not to mention the pain of carrying a bottle + a separate bowl.
Now, this thing looks like the perfect solution:

It’s basically a bottle with a bowl attached to the cap. It’s made in such way that once laid flat on the ground, the water will pour itself into the bowl and will stop once the bowl is full, so it won’t overflow. As the dog is drinking, extra water from the bottle automatically comes out to keep the bowl full. Once you’re done, you just pick up the Water Rover, let the water flow back into the bottle and close the cap. No more wasted water, and no more bowls to carry around. How perfect is that?
The company says there’s a belt clip included, so you can attach it to your waist. I personally can’t see myself walking around like this all the time though:

But if it’s for a small dog like a chihuahua, I will only need their smallest size, which will be easy to carry in a bag. This will definitely be my next purchase. Not the cutest item from my list, but hands down one of the most useful! Now comes the question, which color?
