As I’ve mentioned, Brian and I are just starting the process of looking for a house, and for the past year we’ve been living between our parents’ houses. It hasn’t been ideal, but we’re grateful that our parents have allowed us to do this in order to save money, especially at the expense of their personal space!
We are also grateful that our parents’ houses are both pet-friendly, as our family includes our four-legged children.
Along with the dogs themselves, we transport a lot of the dogs’ equipment – pillows, toys, balls, Chuck-Its, etc. – back and forth between the houses, too. And since we’re always on the go, I’m constantly on the lookout for things that make life easier.
I was sent the Martha Stewart 3-piece Bowl Set from PetSmart for review, and not only does it fit the bill on the “making life eaiser” front – it’s incredibly stylish to boot (well, it is by Martha)! I love the colors and the design.
The three pieces are: a non-skid melamine bowl, a stainless steel bowl that fits inside the larger bowl, and an airtight lid.
Brian and I take this set to the park so the dogs can get a drink from the stainless steel bowl in between playing. It is portable and compact, and with its airtight lid, it’s ideal for travel.
What I love about the non-skid bowl is that it is sturdy but lightweight. It looks like a ceramic bowl, but it’s made of melamine, so it’s versatile and I don’t worry about it breaking. We plan to spend a lot of time outdoors this spring and summer, so it will come in handy for doggy meals on-the-go.
We were also sent the Martha Stewart Butterfly Hoodie to review. The Large was a little too small to fit Tansy (she’s about 55 lbs.), but it is absolutely ADORABLE, so I’m giving it to a friend who has a smaller dog because I can’t bear to have something so cute go to waste!
It is made of soft cotton knit and stitched with sweet silver butterflies. Couldn’t you just melt!?
