Stuff we like: new dog tags

We got Kali some new dog tags for the new year, because having current contact information on your dog is so very important. Kali’s name is on the front and my phone number on the back. IMG_6190

Couldn’t find any nice ones locally, so ordered them from the US, from The Landlocked Dog. They are very well made, just the way I wanted and were shipped (across the big pond) very fast, I can only recommend the Landlocked Dog if you need new dog tags.


Stuff we like: Hurtta Win!

Back in spring we won this Folded Travel Bowl and some Racinel treats during a contest on Hurtta’s facebook page.


The treats contained some grain, but it didn’t seem too much so I gave them Kali, a few at a time. She really liked them and actually stole the second pack out of my training bag. Racinel is a Finnish business, so this is just a rough translation of the ingredient list I found online:
Meat and animal products (87% in total,  of that 73% cattle & 17% farmed game), oils and fats, minerals, cereals and products of plant origin
31% protein, 26% fat content, fiber content 2.5%, ash 9.5%, moisture content 30%


The Hurtta Travel Bowl is amazingly practical! I absolutely love it. It’s very lightweight (45gr according to Amazon) and holds up to a 1liter of water. It comes with a clip to attach it to your bag.
What I like about this bowl compared to the foldable plastic bowls we used on our hikes before, is that it folds up in itself. I don’t like stuff hanging losely from my training bag or backpack when hiking, so I’m glad I can just fold this one up and even if it’s still wet inside, I can just throw it in my backpack without having to worry about anything else getting wet.



Stuff we like: Nepali collars

During my last travel to Nepal I bought some fabric, thinking I could make some nice dog collars.

I never really got to it, but this summer I finally sent two ribbons to Love4Dogs and she made me these beautiful collars.

The first one is underlaid with beautiful wine-red fleece.


And the second one is made with black leather.


I’m really happy with how these turned out. They’re very wide, but soft and comfortable and Kali only wears them as decoration anyway.
