Have you ever been out and about, and your sweet
little furbaby drops a "tootsie roll" and you have nothing
to pick it up with and no were to put it?
Well I have!
I dig in my purse for a little bit of used tissue and do the
best I can to clean it up. And of course, there isn't a trash
can in site, so I have to stash it in my purse till I find one.
EEEEEWWW or ... I walk a way like I don't see it!
Well I have the cutest little Dog Mat -
Poo Bag / Purse for you.
It is a great size to put a few plastic poo bags in.
Great for going on a walk or trip to the dog part.
Light and easy to carry, and looks pretty cute too.
Shaped like a dog bone, and has a cute little paw print applique,
and a double chained handle, and those sweet little bows.
I think any little dog loving girl would love to have one as well.
A Video to help with the tricky corners.
