Happy Thorsday! Mama was a Girl Scout, and while it’s the Boy Scout motto, she’s pretty good at the “be prepared” thing. So, we thought we’d share what lives in the car for us.
We have a collapsible water bowl, this precise one by Bamboo, actually. It’s perfect for the trips to Sissy’s Vision Vet, when after the visit, we hang out in the grassy spot and do what we need to do before we get back in the car again.
Mama doesn’t stock water bottles in the car. Our climate is too unpredictable, and no one wants hot water, and there are some debates as to the chemicals in the plastic breaking down in high temperatures. So, she just grabs some water before we leave…
While we travel with our leashes snapped on, Mama also keeps at least two spare leashes in the car too. One is a retractable leash that even has poo bags snapped on it, so she always as a trash bag when one is required. The spare leashes have come in handy when other dogs have needed a leash for whatever reason too.
She also has a basic first aid kit in the car. There are pet first aid kits and she has had a couple, but really, a human first aid kit will do just fine in most situations.
And no matter the weather, she always has an umbrella, a jacket and a blanket in there too.
Shouldn’t there be dog/pet scouts with badges and uniforms and everything?!
