If you like dogs and you like backpacks (and who doesn’t), today is your lucky day. I have found backpacks to carry your dog in. I have found backpacks with pictures of dogs on them (for adults and kids, natch). I have even found backpacks for your dog to wear! We humans have always had lots of options, but now our dogs no longer have to limit themselves to just bandanas and sweaters they can have a backpack too! So when your dog wants to carry her tissues and lipstick (oh wait, that’s me), I mean her doggy treats and your extra key, she can do it in style.
Click through the photos below to check out the doggy backpack bonanza.
